I am finally getting around to updating!
First, on a medical front. Buggy is doing really well. On Christmas Eve his temp stayed very high. Mostly in the high 103's. Yesterday, it came down and hung around in the 100-101.5 range. Today, his temperature is gone. He is still complaining of a sore throat, but overall he is doing great. Alex and I also got the best Christmas gift yesterday....his port had a blood return! Which means we can run labs on Monday and don't have to rush to Houston.
Now for the fun surprise I promised to tell you about on Christmas Eve! About 10 days ago our pastor from church called and let me know that a family from the church wanted to "adopt" us for Christmas! I was a little anxious. As most of you know, I have a hard time asking for help of any kind. Well Wednesday the entire Harper family (about 15 people) came over to deliver our goodies. They were the most awesome family! Alex fell in love with them. ( I think the feelings were mutual). They were so very generous. We are truly blessed for having met such good people. We hope to stay in touch!
Alex had a wonderful day yesterday. He may be the slowest gift opener ever. He wants to play with each thing as he opens it. He was so excited over all his gifts. The look on his face was priceless. The day was all the more special because we came so close to being in the hospital.
Thank you to everyone who had some part in making this day special. We truly love all of you and are grateful everyday for your friendships and love.
