The Zoo!

Posted by Jenn on May 15, 2008

We were able to go to the Zoo on Saturday. It was fun to play and watch Emily and Zach see the animals. Zach had a hard time “seeing” the animals, We took him out of his wheelchair and he was able to see the Giraff. It was so fun to watch him. He couldn’t take his eyes off of them. It was so fun.

My little wonders…

Posted by Jenn on May 7, 2008

I have been thinking about all the blessings in my life and the one that I cherish the most is the blessing I have been given to be a mother. Even when I feel like I am at my wits end I always find that moment when I love them more at that moment then I ever have before. Its a wonderful feeling to know that I am loved and wanted. The times when Emily lays with me and says “mommy lets just talk”. At that moment when our noses are touching and she looks into my eyes and wants to talk about anything and everything, is when I am filled with so much joy and amazement. Those are the times when I am in shock that those 2 little blessings are mine. What a wonderful thing Emily and Zachary are to me. And for the first time in his whole life that Zach as reached for me to hold him. Something that most mothers take for granted. Its only happened one time. That one time is something that I will cherish. It came right at the most perfect time. Watching them grow is so much fun. One that I have taken for granted and decided that I would slow down and be involved in, instead of watching from a far. They are “My little wonders”!

Gross!

Posted by Jenn on April 28, 2008

So its 4am monday morning do you know where your children are? I do! One is sleeping peacefully like he should be and one is watching TV on the floor with a bowl and a towel next to her. BLAH!

Emily woke up yesterday throwing up. She spent most of the morning doing that. After a long nap she acted just fine. Then at 3 this morning we started the process all over again. Not how I wanted to spend my Monday but thats okay. This is a life of a mom huh! Its funny that before I had kids the sound of someone throwing up would make me do it too. Now it takes A LOT of that to make me gag. Ohh well. Its only suppose to last about 24 hours. If thats true then we only have 2 to go! YAY.

Other than that, things are okay for us right now. Zach is mostly back to normal. He still is whiny. But thats to be expected. Now that i have experienced the things i have with him. I have a firmer faith in myself that when the next seizure happens I will know how to handle it. Its not going to be any less scary to watch, BUT I will know what to ask for and what to expect. Its been a long road but i am okay with things now. I still hate seizures. I still hate to watch them and When they happen again I will still vent about how much I hate them. It will just be a sentence rather than a whole post. I do have an appointment set up with Dr. Lloyd for a neuro consult. He has been Zach’s Neuro from the begining. Its fun to see how many people love him as much as i Do. He IS an amazing Dr.

Anyway, I need to go make sure Em is okay. She keeps telling me that she has a huge problem up there. I better go figure out what it is. Its not to bad because i can hear everything she is doing. Wish me Luck!

Thats it, I’m DONE!

Posted by Jenn on April 22, 2008

I HATE SEIZURES!! I hate them! I hate them! I hate them!!!

Every time this happens a little bit of my heart is ripped out and stomped on.

I am having a really hard time climbing out of the pit these days. This isn’t helping matters!

Thank goodness my mother was with me. I am really glad she was there to keep me calm.

He started Seizing in the car. We were about a mile away from Primary Childrens. They got us right back.  We got it stopped quicker than any other time before. They let us take him home. So thankfully we will be sleeping in our own beds tonight. What a DAY! No more PLEASE! Someone bring me dinner! Its so hard to be “normal” when i am so worried. I hate this!!!

Some fun with finger paint!

Posted by Jenn on April 19, 2008

Our WONDERFUL vision therapist brought the kids some finger paints to use. Emily was all about painting and singing and having a wonderful time. She would dip her Q-tip in the paint and say just one more dip mom. It was so much fun to watch. Zach on the other had didn’t want anything to do with actual painting he just wanted to play with the Q-tips. When we were done we had a HUGE mess to clean up. Most of the paint ended up in his tummy. Good thing it was non toxic!
