Oooops, let's try this again....

Well, last night we decided to come home and spend the weekend with Kaden and Jonas. Marnie stayed at the hospital with Lucas. My mom is staying with him tonight. What a blessing it is to have such a support system. Anyway, we took the boys to see Ice Age 3 today and it was cute. The boys loved it of course because it had dinosaurs in it. We also went to lunch at Red Robin and then ran a few more errands. It was nice to just spend time as a family again. But there was a void there without Lucas. I would look back and see his car seat just empty. Even though it was a fun day, my mind wasn't far from the hospital. Aaron could tell something was bothering me and I kept reassuring him that everything was fine, I just missed our little guy. We bought some kid friendly fire works for tomorrow night and can't wait to take them to see the show at Thanksgiving Point. It's a tradition we do every year and the boys are really excited. I did let them crack into their pop it's tonight. They loved it!!! Well, it's past 11:00 pm and so I should probably retire for the night. Just a note to all of you who have sent us cards recently with words of comfort we thank you. One day at a time. I want to cherish every moment I have with those that I love. Happy 4th everyone...

  1. I am glad you guys were able to get out for a bit. When our little one was at Primary Children's for 10 days, we got stir-crazy and were able to escape for a few hours. I can't tell you how good it felt to get back into a normal world. We too felt we couldn't be gone for to long, and were thinking how Teague was doing back at the hospital.

    Aaron and Shannon, I read your blog all the time, and can't believe how similar your story is to ours. Teagu too needed a feeding tube, and yep, he hated it as well. Please let us know what we can do to help you guys. We were in your place not even 2 months ago.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call us. Shannon, from reading your Blog, your doing a fantastic job with everything. Aaron, keep up the good work!

    Take care, and our thoughts and prayers are with you.
