Amy Ok, for Elijah’s CT, overall – GREAT results. Fantastic healing with no sign of former damage in much of the lung tissue.  A few remaining blebs.  Some bigger ones in the lower right lung – one as big as 3cm, so the doc is not comfortable with intubating for surgery to implant a port, but will double check with anesthesiologist. You know what backwards feeling I get from this… (Tue, 20 Jul 2010 14:47:57 GMT)
Amy Ian randomly tells me: Mom, you can’t use a lawn mower because you could get hurt. Lawn mowers are for big boys, not little girls. You are too little. Girls can make smoothies. (Mon, 19 Jul 2010 23:09:50 GMT)
Amy Just had ct. Won’t get verdict for a cpl days but I got a peek and mostly it looks better to me tho a few blebs on rt side look pretty big so I can’t guess what doc will say about the port surgery. (Mon, 19 Jul 2010 16:54:12 GMT)
Amy Brian was taking Isaac upstairs to sleep, and said,”C’mon, Isaac, we have a date!” Isaac yelled, “A date!” and ran out of the room. Brian found him clawing through the pantry looking for his date. (Mon, 19 Jul 2010 02:10:56 GMT)
Amy CT scan tomorrow for the babe. Hoping to see great improvement in his lungs so he can exchange this obnoxious central line for a port. (Sun, 18 Jul 2010 13:47:15 GMT)
Amy Ian wouldn’t let me go to sleep last night until I told him all about worms, birds, planets, ants, the sun, bones, blood vessels, and what plants and oranges are made of. (Sat, 17 Jul 2010 17:03:11 GMT)
Amy Brian found my phone this morning inside a ziploc bag with Mater, inside the baggie box at the top of the cabinet. Apparently Ian packed it and I unknowingly tossed it up in the cabinet. (Sat, 17 Jul 2010 13:50:53 GMT)
Amy I could go for something chocolate-peanut-buttery….or is that chocolate-minty?  Focus, Amy, what you really want is green and leafy….pah! *snicker snicker* *gasp!* Snickers!! (Thu, 15 Jul 2010 15:51:36 GMT)
Amy My 6 m/o is far too coordinated at spitting out his medicine. (Wed, 14 Jul 2010 16:51:18 GMT)

Amy I tuned the radio and said, “Hey, Ian, this sounds like Mexican music!” He said,”Yes, it has guitars and horns and violins. That’s what I hear.” (Wed, 07 Jul 2010 17:14:38 GMT)
Amy Could be coincidence. but I think Elijah just formally requested his first change. With a concerned expression, he put his fists together in the air (resembling the “change” sign) and said “bthhunng” (whatever that means). (Tue, 06 Jul 2010 14:09:33 GMT)
Amy At Chick Fil A, Ian looked at a picture of a cowboy and horse overlooking a plain and he said,”oh! I want to be a cowboy when I grow up! I want to grow up and do that! (Tue, 06 Jul 2010 00:59:19 GMT)
Amy Elijah’s throwing a fit at every meal time. Guess I’ll have to start feeding the boy. (Tue, 06 Jul 2010 00:37:39 GMT)
Amy Lenox Square was a blast! (Mon, 05 Jul 2010 03:16:06 GMT)

Amy I’m such a sucker for office supplies and containers. (Mon, 21 Jun 2010 21:15:47 GMT)
Amy There is hope for the future of man. For “fun” last week my 3-year-old son took clothes out of the dryer and into a basket, emptied the lint filter, put wet clothes in the dryer, pushed the start button and pulled the clean clothes over to me all by himself. (Sun, 20 Jun 2010 00:53:09 GMT)
Amy I’m so bummed. Somehow I’ve lost track of my camera and *two* video cameras. Just how talented is that? (Sat, 19 Jun 2010 22:20:52 GMT)
Amy Bonus points for Brian.  Somehow he remembers the first meal I ever cooked for him. (Wed, 16 Jun 2010 17:53:29 GMT)
Amy Ian: When I growed into a little baby I had to go to the doctor and he measured my heart beat and I almost didn’t need a poke, then I camed home and got bigger and growed teeth and now I have 20 jokes and I need to grow down into a little baby again. (Mon, 14 Jun 2010 15:31:10 GMT)
Amy Ian:  Pop rocks are too…poppy. (Thu, 10 Jun 2010 16:53:34 GMT)

Amy I SUPER-enjoyed seeing Dr. Ben Carson at church yesterday! He was my hero in 8th grade, when I was sure I would be a neurosurgeon. (Sun, 09 May 2010 15:26:30 GMT)

Amy Isaac said, “Don’t like Chuck E. Cheese. Not fun.” Eeeenteresting. Maybe when you’re 3, pardner. (Tue, 27 Apr 2010 02:09:59 GMT) (Looking back, we think he meant the giant rodent walking around in a mouse costume)
Amy Can I put in my request for a weekend now? (Tue, 13 Apr 2010 23:20:45 GMT)

Amy OK, UPDATE: Elijah’s not septic, but had a pneumothorax this morning. I guess one of the LCH “bubbles” in his lungs burst. He’s resting on the vent with morphine while they investigate.  They might put in a chest tube. many more little time bombs are in his lungs? (Sat, 13 Feb 2010 16:35:13 GMT)
Amy I adored my time with the boys on Sunday and I’m adoring my time with Elijah now! (Mon, 08 Feb 2010 20:21:25 GMT)

Amy Tomorrow we *should* be finding out the specific version and severity of Elijah’s illness.  He’s been confirmed with congenital Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis, and they think it’s the self-healing kind but a specialist will look at him tomorrow to decide. Please keep us in your prayers.  On another note, he’s made a lot of progress on trying some non-tube feedings! (Sat, 23 Jan 2010 01:47:03 GMT)
Amy I’m not on speaking terms with my breast pump right now. (Thu, 21 Jan 2010 17:18:08 GMT)

Amy Please keep my mom (and Dad) in your prayers, as she heals from an appendectomy.  So far everything is going ‘well’. (Mon, 23 Nov 2009 20:43:36 GMT)
Amy I think I can consider Ian officially potty trained…tho public places (on his own little potty even) are still freak-out time for him.  Any suggestions? (Mon, 16 Nov 2009 22:26:06 GMT)
Amy Ian tells me: “Last night I cried and cried when Isaac broke my heart.  He hurt my feelings.” (Sat, 07 Nov 2009 13:47:48 GMT)

Amy Eek!  Ack!  Time to pack! (Thu, 03 Sep 2009 12:30:13 GMT)
Amy It seems toddlers shouldn’t have teeth installed until they can be more responsible with them.  Gee, am I repeating myself? (Fri, 28 Aug 2009 16:41:01 GMT)
Amy Ian woke me up this morning with an eskimo kiss, a butterfly kiss, a garbage truck kiss (an Ian specialty) and the words, “You are Mom.  You are a ‘pecial girl.” (Thu, 27 Aug 2009 13:35:18 GMT)
Amy Ian’s first joke?  Brian, being a Giant, chases Ian, chanting: Fe Fi Fo Fum…  Ian later amuses himself with: Fi Fi Fo Five Six. (Tue, 25 Aug 2009 15:33:46 GMT)

Amy A belated welcome to July… (Thu, 02 Jul 2009 15:01:39 GMT)
