Hope everyone had a great Christmas :) Santa is making a special trip to our house this year, he's waiting until all four of us are there. My mom was able to bring Elli up for the day yesterday. I got to snuggle both of my babies for the first time, it was very, very special! We watched Bolt and then took Elli to the Ronald McDonald house to play. We put together a couple puzzles and played a game. It was a great day, even though we weren't able to spend time with the rest of our family.

Yesterday was quite eventful for Mr Evan. I got a call from the nurse about 230am, Evan was running a fever. She said she was going to give him some tylenol, and then they had to run all kinds of tests. I got up and headed up to Evan's room, he was wide awake from having blood drawn and they put a catheter in to get a urine sample. Poor baby. We cuddled and he stayed awake for forever, poor mommy.. lol When the Dr's rounded, they decided they were going to do a spinal tap as well to check for meningitis. Ugh! Evan had that done yesterday morning.. All of the 24hr results are back and negitive. The final results come back at 48 hours, which will be tomorrow. And since the final results dont come back til tomorrow, that means no g-tube. :( I know they wanted to be thorough, but it was ONE fever, and his temperature has been completely normal since that ONE fever. I think it was an environmental thing, his room was warm, he was bundled and wearing long sleeve pajamas. We had to wait a whole week for the earliest spot in surgery to get his gtube, and now we are delayed. No one will know when they can fit him in again until tomorrow. So we probably won't be getting discharged this week... :(


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about the delay. Keeping you all in our prayers that they will be able to fit you in soon so you can get on your way home so Santa can visit. :)

  2. The delays are always so hard. I am praying they don't find anything and you all can go home and see what Santa brought. You remain in my thoughts and prayers.

    Have a Happy, Healthy New Year!
