It was a "CRAZY" week.

I took Easton for his 9 month checkup last Tuesday, He was 20lbs. and 29 3/4 inches. He has been doing Great over the last 2 weeks, and has recovered from the RSV.
Thursday, I took Grayson & Brayden to the doc for there 6 year and 5 year checkups, Poor Grayson has not grown any in the last year (they think it is because of his Asthma meds). But other than that he is in Great health, They did another Diabetis test on Brayden and Praise the Lord it came back normal, they also did a hearing test and we found out that he does not have hearing loss (he in fact has selective hearing like his Daddy!) JK!. No, the nurse came in all serious and said I hate to tell you this (Ok Scare me to death why don't you)but Brayden has selective hearing.)But anyway he is in perfect health.
Then we were back at the Doc on Friday with Easton who has yet another double ear infection. I was really hoping since this is his 3rd ear infection in a month and a half that She(the pedi) would recommended doing tubes but no such luck, she wants to wait a little longer.
We went to Relay for Life friday night in honor of My Mom, I was so excited that she was able to walk the survivors walk and we were able to walk with her as her caregivers. It was a Great night to be able to Celebrate with My Family.

What a Vacation!!!

>We are home from Vacation, we got home around 2am monday morning.
Just wanted to show you alittle of what we did this past week.

>No! Easton did not drive and he did not ride in Isaac's lap on the way to Disney on Friday! This was one of our stops to let Easton out of his car seat to stetch out.

Saturday we went to Cocoa Beach Fl. and spent some time on the beach, Isaac and the big boys all got there 1st surf boards, they were all so excited. Grayson and Brayden love the beach. Easton was content to sit on a blanket with Mommy while I soaked up some rays.






Poor kids they could not see anything with the sun in their eyes.

They begged Isaac to bury them in the sand.


I don't think he could get any sweeter!





He is Too Cool for his own good!


At Downtown Disney!


>Sunday we went to Magic Kingdom!p>



This is before he started coughing so bad( you can see the watery look in his eyes).



Brayden on Buzz Lightyear Ride. (our favorite ride)

Babywearing is wonderful!



Sunday Easton started coughing and then Sunday night his cough changed, I called the pedi. and they told us to get him albuteral for his breathing treatment and so off we went to find a 24 hour pharmacy @ 1:30am. We got the meds and headed back to the resort got the big boys back in the bed and gave E his meds, within a few minutes of his breathing treatment his breathing changed, so Isaac called the triage nurse @ the resort and they called an ambulance, it took about 3 minutes and they were there and checked him out and said that his oxygen levels were really low ( his levels were 76) so they rushed him to Dr. P.Phillips hospital in Orlando. He was given 2 treatments in the ambulance and did not respond to them. That was one of the scariest & longest 10 minute rides of my life. They started an iv and did more treatments and gave him a steriod shot and his oxygen levels finally started to go back to normal, but they wanted him to go to the childrens hospital, so as soon as they were able to get a room ready he was transferred to Arnold Palmer Childrens Hospital in Orlando. I was told @ AP that he had tested positive for RSV. I was shocked because we are so careful with him after all of the problems he had birth.

Long story short I was at the hospital with Easton and Isaac was at the resort with G & B because Grayson And Brayden were not allowed on the floor because E was in isolation. Lets just say I creid alot. It is awful to have a sick baby but it is even more awful to have a sick baby, be 9 hours from home, be seperated from your husband and kids andnot have anyone there to help so I could come to the hospital and bring anything to me. I relized shortly after we got E setteled that I had no wallet it was in his diaper bag at the resort so i had no money so as you can imagine i was stressed, worried, tired, hungry, and had an awful headache. all I have to say is WHAT A VACATION!
I really appreciate all of the thoughts and prayers! you all have no idea how much it meant to us to know that so many people were praing for our little man.


Easton and his poor little arm with his iv( they had his whole arm wrapped to keep him from pulling out his iv)

He was released Tuesday afternoon and we were so excited to be back together.


We did get to go on with our vacation so here are a few more pics of the rest of our week.

Easton is hospitalized in Orlando...

Morning all. This is Jennifer. I am posting for Konnie this morning because she is stuck in a hospital room in Orlando with Easton. He had been coughing for several days, but seemed better yesterday. Then last night he had several coughing spells and at the recomendation of the Dr via phone they gave him an albuterol treatment. Just a few minutes later he started having trouble with his breathing, and they had the front desk call an ambulance. Anyway, long story short, he is in The Arnold Palmer Children's Hospital in Orlando with RSV. He is quarantined, and Grayson and Brayden are not even allowed on the floor he is on! Isaac and the boys are stuck at the resort and Konnie and Easton are stuck in the hospital. Please be in prayer for all of them, but especially for Easton. They have all been up since about 6am yesterday and are all exhausted. I will keep you posted as I find out more, and Konnie may be able to update herself later-they have wi-fi at the hospital, but Isaac will have to bring her laptop to her.
