Surgery Day

The day has finally come.  Today we took Burke in to have the cyst that has formed in the lower inside of his lip off.  It was an early morning.  Taylor and I got up around 4:30 so we could get ready and get Boo up so we could be at Children's at 5:30am.

Once we got there Taylor did a lot of walking around with him.  He kept signing to us "more".  He was so hungry and we couldn't give him food or water.  That totally sucked!

Once they took him out we did pretty good.  He was crying really hard but we knew he was in good hands.  We are so grateful to Dr. Richter for getting us in so quickly and taking such good care of our little man.  We also ran into another friend that is an anesthesiologist that helped us with Burke and helped me keep my mind off everything when they wheeled him away.

After seeing all the babies and children in the waiting room knowing that some of them most likely were having really big surgeries put everything in prospective for me.  This was nothing that we were going through.

The procedure was so quick and he handled it beautifully.  I was so excited to go back and see him.  He was sipping on some apple juice in his little yellow gown when we walked back.  He started crying and guess who he wanted.... His daddy!  He wanted daddy all morning.  :)  He loves his daddy so much.

Since we have been home he had been sleeping a lot and when he has been awake he has been in the best mood.  He was being so silly I had to video him and am posting it below.  Sweet little Boo.

I am so glad that is over with!

Choroid Plexus Cyst (CPC) & Hydronephrosis

I have heard from many of your wondering what exactly these markers are and what could they mean. We received an information sheet from our genetics doctor that I can't seem to upload but I found this write up and thought I would share. The Choroid Plexus and Choroid Plexus CystsThe choroid plexus is an area of the brain that makes cerebrospinal fluid. Cerebrospinal fluid is the substance that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The choroid plexus is not an area of the brain involved in thinking. Choroid plexus cysts are fluid-filled spaces in the choroid plexus kind of like blisters or bubbles. Choroid plexus cysts are not tumors or cancer, and they will disappear on their own usually between 24 to 26 weeks of pregnancy. Choroid plexus cysts, in and of themselves, are NOT a problem and do not interfere with brain function.They are seen in about 1% (1/100) of all second trimester ultrasounds. Choroid plexus cysts may be seen in one or both sides of the brain and the number, size…

Burke is 3!!!!!

Okay I have decided that time is going by way too fast.  Burke just turned 3 the beginning of June!  I can not believe it.  I feel like just yesterday I was in the hospital having the little guy!  We had a fun small family party and he is loving some super hero's right now so that was the theme :)  Silas really wanted to jump out when he walked in and yell surprise so that is what we did :)  Burke is super shy and he really wasn't a fan of it all.  Pibby and Pops got him his first bike and it is SO cute.   I picked up a balloon for all the kids and one special spider man one for Boo.  He has always loved balloons.  He said the sweetest thing....... he wanted to let his balloons go up to Mamie so she would know that it was his birthday.  I couldn't believe he let his special Spider Man one go.  It made me want to cry.  She should be here with us.  ANYWAYS, it was a fun day and I got some pictures of course and a few videos.  Happy 3rd Birthday Burkie BOO!  We love you so so…


Burke and Winnie just finished their first Vacation Bible School and they had a blast.  I did as well :)  I got to help in Burkes class which is always really interesting.  There were about 20 3yr olds in there so it was WILD :)  It was a fun 3 days of learning about how God is our light.  We sang "This little light of mine" everyday and Winnie is trying so hard to sing it.  She walks around the house with her little pointer finger up mumbling.  I love it.
