Yuri update day 2

Yuri is home now, thank goodness. He is in some pain but Michelle says there's NO snot!! And if you know Yuri you know the lil guy can produce an amazing amount of snot.

I can't wait to see how good he is gonna do and feel once he recovers. I can't tell you how happy I am that Michelle found doctors that were able to diagnose and help Yuri. Praise the Lord!! Great thing He continues to do.

Latest from Michelle: "Oh my goodness...yuri is walking all over the place. His ears were so full of junk that it messed up his balance...but he is walking...i cant believe it"

Yuri Update

Here is the update I got from Michelle. Praise be to God!!

"Yuri is doing great. The ent said in all his years he has never seen such bad sinus. His tonsils and adnoids were so swollen that they were completely blocking his throat. That is why he had so much snot in his nose bc it had no where else to drain. His ears were full of crud and when he got out of surgery he no longer held toys to his ears. He could actually hear the music while the toy was laying on the bed. He is hurting...but he has to feel so much better. He is in icu and hopefully will be discharged tomorrow",

Prayers for Yuri

Little man is having his adenoids and tonsils taken out today. This him in the hospital. Doesn't he look great!!

Michelle is just awesome!! And he is thriving. I got to talk to him on the phone the other day and he blew me kisses! Awww!

God is so good! Please pray for a successful and uneventful surgery. I will keep you posted as Michelle keeps me updated.

Thanks for ALL your prayers!!

Bohdan Prayer Request

 I know this may seem trivial but we are desperate. We have been trying to draw blood from Bohdan for a very important test since October, yes you read that correctly October. We have been to 4 different lab companies and 6 different phlebotomists.

We are scheduled to try again Monday morning at 7:30am. Please pray that he (Walker, the phlebotomist) is able to get all the blood they need for the test. And that we will process the blood correctly and not have to redo any part of the test later.

Thank you all for your prayers!! It is a good feeling to have such a large body of Christ to help support us in prayer. Blesings to you all.

Family update

Just a quick update about what is going on around here. We have been dealing with the crud that has been going around. Of course we don't all have it at once we have been taking turns and sharing. Big news is that the boys have all started swim classes and they are enjoying them for the most part. :o) Caius and Bohdan are in the Mommy and me classes, on separate days obviously since there is only one Momma. Asher is in a preschool class and is learning to be comfortable in the water. It has only been a few weeks and all the boys are already showing much improvement. Now onto the pictures....

I got a new litter box cover for the cat. Josh put it together and not a moment later we couldn't find Bohdan. Hmmmmmm?

 All the kids are loving this new 'toy'. {sigh} Asher will cram one of the lils in there with all his cars or blocks and they all just giggle.

 Bohdan has a new nickname "Gargoyle". You never know where he will be perched. He can now climb and he get on the train table, the play table, the fireplace and all the couches. He is doing so good. He needs a little stool to get on the couch and the other day the stool was in the middle of the floor so he went and got it. Pushed it to the couch and climbed on. The lil stinker has also figured out the remote to the TV and will turn on another show if his current show turns off. I did not teach him this, he is amazingly smart!!

  The question is "If Caius gets a hold of a marker, can he get the lid off?" The answer "YES!!" Oi!
 After we washed the green marker off.

 They were holding hands a watching a show when I saw them. Of course a camera means 'stop everything cute you were doing.' its still a cute pic though.

 Absolutely gorgeous!!

 This was later that afternoon. He was SO tired he fell asleep on the couch. Poor baby!

And I will leave you will Ash on chocolate cake!
