Wow, its almost been a week! I got sick late last week with a sore throat and sinus head ache. I actually had laringytis for several days, which is never good for a talker like me!

So needless to say we had a pretty quiet weekend. Grandpa left on Wednesday which always makes us sad. He is thinking about coming back for Thanksgivin​g which would be nice. I love Thanksgivin​g and love to prepare for family.

Medi​cally speaking Alex is doing great other then our clotting issues cropping up again. I don't like the whole bleeding thing. It worries me!

We had a great day yesterday. We went to Horseback riding in the morning. For the second week in a row we road Mickey Mouse who is pretty big. Alex really likes riding Mickey and has even been trotting some. I love to watch him overcoming his fears and mastering things we never thought he would do. On the way home, Alex, Bruce and I stopped at a big pumpkin patch and enjoyed some beautiful weather. We also got a big pumpkin that Alex doesn't want to carve... He wants to "get a knife and make a face". After nap, we met playgroup at a much smaller pumpkin patch for a while so the kids could play. I think that is the busiest day we've had in a very long time!

Alex continues to thrive in "school". He is doing amazingly well. Once in a while we are ready to kill each other, but for the most part we enjoy our quiet time learning together. His reading skills are taking off and he can spell like a champ. And his knowledge of the animal kingdom is phenomenal. I am so impressed with all he is learning in less then ideal circumstanc​es.

We have a BIG trip coming up to Houston. We are staying for 8 nights and Mimi will be there! Mimi has her own set of appointment​s. We currently have 4 appointment​s and 3 tests scheduled with a few more to hopefully get scheduled. We also will most likely need another Vitmain K infusion. So it should be crazy.

Pleas​e pray for Buggy and his Jtube again. He is having pretty bad pain episodes. He just doubles over in pain and will not walk. He then walks hunched over like an old man for a while. It breaks my heart.

I think that is all...
