This week is flying by so quickly! Alex and I hate that our time with Mimi is coming to an end. We all wish we lived closer.
Monday was quite an exciting day at horseback riding. It started out the same as always. We were nearing the end of our riding time when a tractor went by us on the trail. The tractor was spreading fertilizer and sprayed some into Eeyore's eyes. Eeyore started bucking and kicking and jumping all over the place. Alex was like a bull rider holding on for dear life. I was no help as the horse had shoved me into a gulley. Finally, Tracy (his instructor) was able to grab Alex before he was thrown to the ground. Alex was scared, but got back on and rode Eeyore back to the stables. By the time we made it to the car, he told us it was the best day horseback riding ever!!! That experience must have worn him out because he was too tired for playgroup. He chose to keep napping! Poor Mimi sure got a show!
Tuesday, we had therapy in the morning and then went to check out the place where we are having Alex's birthday party. It is an indoor safari park with a train ride and robotic animals. He loved it. We had a quiet relaxed afternoon.
Today, we headed to the zoo. As you all know we love the zoo. It was pretty hot so we didn't last long, but it was fun.
On the medical front....Alex continues to do well. We are up to 10 cc/hr on feeds and Alex is doing pretty well. He will be SO happy when we are done with TPN. It is so hard right now trying to get around with both TPN and formula plus 2 pumps. Alex's labs looked pretty good. We are still waiting on some specialty labs that the endocrinologist requested though.
We ask that you continue to pray for Bruce to get a job, us to have the funds to continue Alex's private insurance and Alex's health. We also ask that you pray fro our dear friend Cooper Knight. He had his small bowel and colon transplant 2 weeks ago and is in rejection.
Thank you for walking this journey with us.
