Stay Strong Tucker

Please pray for Tucker. He was born with a hypoplastic left heart (like our Ava). His mother had found out about a heart surgeon in Boston that reconstructs the heart to make it whole again. Well, he just had surgery to get his whole heart today and is doing very well. Please keep him and his family in your prayers as he still has to recover.

Stay strong big boy. You are in our thoughts and prayers. XOXOXOXOXO

About us:
I will post more later. I am tired (still) and need to get to bed. Things are going well though. Brody is now on baby foods and has been for almost two weeks now (2 weeks this Sunday). He LOVES them.

Kaden is, as always, simply amazing. He continues to grow and learn new things. Potty training is going great with a day or two of set backs, but back to wanting to use the potty (nothing a little money couldn't handle ;) ). He is tolerating coming off of the vent very well and my plan is to push him as much as possible this summer.

I took the boys swimming last weekend at my parents. They both loved it. Kaden has been before but never really wanted to stay in longer then 15 minutes. This time he stayed in for at least two hours (while off of his vent). He wanted to go under water like his cousin:(. I told him once we get rid of the trach he can go under all he wants. My mom and I were trying to come up with some ideas on how trach kids could go swimming more safely and go under water...still thinking, then we would need to send it to someone powerful like Oprah :) to get it made. Oh, one can dream, right???

Anyway, more later. I am off to bed. Yawn....

I'm glad to hear everyone is doing well.

Did you ever find out what was wrong with you?

Sounds like Kaden is on his way to getting rid of his trach. How exciting! I will pray that he will continue to reach that goal.

Looking forward to seeing some more pictures of the cuties.

Good to hear from you. I have been praying for Tucker. Thanks for posting that. He is a strong boy and loved by many.

Glad to hear the boys are doing good and that Kaden is doing good off the trach. That is awesome.

Hope to hear more soon.
