Busy Week again

This week is going to be a bit busier than our normal "busy week". Mason had RSV shot, and Physical therapy today. Tomorrow will be Pediatrician checkup, then Cardiology check up. We already went to the Dr.s office yesterday for Colby (sinus infection). So total, we will have 5 dr visits this week.

Also we met with our new physical therapist today...all I can say is I loved her after the first 5min!!!!!!!! She was wonderful and VERY encouraging.

Happy Tuesday!

We had a Happy Turkey Day...

First of all.... Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!

Here is our rundown of Thanksgiving:

First we started at Cory's parents house. We had a yummy meal ( I brought homemade rolls and pumpkin cheesecake.) Mason was great all day , no fussing , just 110% good. (like he always is). He fell asleep after a few bites of lunch. Colby did really good up until his nap was interrupted... then he was mr. grumperpants for an hour or so.

We also went to my parents house to have dinner. Mason slept through that meal as well. Colby had a great time playing with his cousins at my parents house, and I got to cuddle and love on my niece Maddy. We all gave thanks and ate too much....just like we should.

Hope you had a great holiday as well!

Mason didnt sleep through Thanksgiving...though it kinda looks that way in the pics!

I need to blog more....

So..... Im a really bad blogger.
But Im going to try my hardest to keep up with blogging better. pinky swear.

As I mentioned last time, Im going to be adding in more of a "family" aspect to this blog. Yes this will still contain everything involving Mason, down syndrome, and heart defects. But our life is more than Down syndrome & heart defects, yes they are a major part of our life....but it doesn't rule our life. And this is a VERY good thing! When we found out that Mason had down syndrome, it was all we coukd think about. And then add that he only had one chamber in his heart, um ya, it filled every thought. But were in a good place now, and DS and his heart take a back seat to therapy, potty training, and family time. And I couldnt be more thankful.

Also, I have another prayer request. I was emailed the other day, a couple just had a baby boy and he has down syndrome (they didnt know before he was born) This came as such a shock for them and they are thinking that they do not want him now. He is in the nicu for being a bit early and the oarents refuse to even hold him. They are planning ow on giving him up for adoption. We ask for you to pray for these parents that they open their hearts to their little baby and know that he is a true blessing. And if not that they tiny baby finds a forever home with parents who love him.

Doing Well

Sorry again for the delay in updates! I will get back into the swing of things again ...I promise!

First up: LIFE IS GOOD!!

Mason is doing very well now. He is now weaned off his steriod and Ib profin (both were being taken for the fluid around his heart). He is now only on Lasik (diaretic), Zantac (for meds bothering his tummy), and Captipril (blood pressure med). Were down to half the meds he was on!!! He had an echo Monday and the fluid is still gone and are considering it resolved as of now!!!! PRAISE GOD!! Overall we can see a change in him, he is just so happy! When the fluid was at its worse...he wasnt nearly as happy as he is now...he is back to his old self!.

We praise God for all the blessing he has bestowed on us & Mason.

I want to start incorperating more "family life" into this blog. Mason is part of our little family of 4 and I will be sharing more "family stuff" on here....hope that is ok!

So here is a proper interduction of our little family

This is Cory (loving, hard working, sweet hubby of mine)and Colby (our 2.5yr old FANTASTIC son, and loving brother)

Be prepared to start hearing more about these 2 wonderful guys in my life!

Mason had an echo yesterday, for pre op to get the fluid around his heart drained. For the last 6 wks we have tried 4 meds and doing 2 echo a week without any change. The fluid was starting to become life threatening because it was thickening around his heart. They started the echo and the tech keep scanning & scanning and finally called the Dr in to scan also. I was starting to really worry t...hat we were going to have to do an emergency procedure because the fluid was worse....but God had other plans... Mason's fluid is gone. They couldn't find any fluid around his heart. Both the Tech and the Dr were baffled but I wasn't. I knew God had preformed a miracle once again. So again we praise GOD for all the blessings he has bestowed on us again
