Update on Crew & Focus group

Crew has not been admitted to the hospital as of yet. However, We are going in daily to the hospital for outpatient suction therapy. It works for a few hours but he is still miserable. I am now full blown sick but going about the day as usual. McKenzie is home sick today with a cold as well. I never thought a tiny baby could get us sick. I wish there was something I could do for him.
Thank you to two kind ladies in my ward Debbie and Stacey for bringing my family dinner last night. That was one less stress for me. It is greatly appreciated.

Photography focus group
I am in charge of the photography focus group for my wards relief society. We have several focus groups going at once. Those that are interested can attend which ones they want. I will be starting the photography focus group the first Thurs. In February ( Next week) Those that are in the area and would like to attend (even if you are not in my ward) please contact me. The photography class will be every Thurs. Night from 7-8 at my house. The group will be every week in February and the first week in March. I have a new Link on my photography site named focus group, go there for information on what we will be covering for this photography session. The photography link is to the right on this page.And best yet it is Free. DON'T FORGET TO BRING YOUR CAMERA TO CLASS
After that I will begin the digital Scrapbooking/ blogging focus group which I will post about at a later date.

Crew has R.S.V

Not fun at our house at all. For the past week, Crew has been running a fever of 100-101. We took him to the Dr on Wed. She said he just has a really bad cold and R.S.V was negative. We then took him back on Saturday morning because he wasn't getting any better. Unfortunately he didn't even see a Dr. Scott took him and saw a nurse. She said Just a bad cold. I knew something was not right. I have never seen a cold produce such a high fever for so long. The Dr.s said you can have a fever with a virus for 2-5 days. I called the Dr. Back that night and demanded to see a DR. He said basically the same thing but that he had a tiny ear infection that somehow got missed. He said it probably started within the last few hours. He gave us a antibiotic for that and sent us to the hospital to have his sinus's drained. Crew could hardly breathe. He also wanted us to do some blood work just to play it safe. And it is a good thing we did. I got the call this morning, his R.S.V turned out positive. I hate seeing my baby this sick and now I feel like I am getting sick.
Please pray for our little Crew!

Crews first cereal feeding

MaKayla took these pictures of Crew's first cereal feeding.



He got so excited. He loves to watch us eat so we thought we would give it a try. He was kicking his feet in delight.


I think more got on his face then in his mouth

NOTE ABOUT KELSI
Kelsi is now living with us. She is settled in and had her first day here at school. It was a rough day. There were lots of tears and calls from school. We hope she does better tomorrow. If you see her with us please give her a warm welcome. We really hope she feels more comfortable here soon.Add Image

We love you Chad


A few weeks ago we found out that my loveable brother Chad could possibly have lymphnode Cancer. I cant remember the technical name. This is very scary for our family. My grandmother died of the same thing. She had it under her armpits. I frequently get lumps there but have been told it isn't anything to worry about yet. Unfortunately, my brothers is in his throat. He was constantly clearing his throat so my dad took him in to get it checked. They said he had tons of swollen lymphnodes all up and down his throat. With a case this bad it was probably cancer but they aren't sure. Today he goes in for pre-op then Friday he gets them removed and checked.
Please prey for him as we all will be. He is the glue that holds our crazy family together.
We love you Chaddy boy!
