What better way to get everyone up to date then to end 2011 with a "Review".
I had "Fred" my gallbladder removed in Feb. 2011. I am so glad I did. My tummy problems got a lot better.
In March Haley turned 13.
Time flys so fast. Haley keeps us very busy. Throughout this year; she has played softball, volleyball, is in cheerleading and band. She continues to keep her grades up. In 2012 she will be a freshman; is that possible?!
In May Breanna turned 4. It is hard to believe that my youngest is 4. Somedays it makes me sad. Other days I look forward to what is to come in the future.
The end of May Kyra graduated from Pre-K. That means it was time for Kindergarten. That means mommy was sad.
Breanna finished her first year of Pre-K. Breanna and Kyra will be a year apart in school. They do EVERYTHING together. They sleep together, eat together, play together; so we knew that Kyra starting Kindergarten would be hard because that meant they would no longer be at the same school.
In June we were blessed to be able to take the kids to Disney World. My mother went along and if it would not have been for her we would not have been able to go. The trip was not cheap.
We had an AMAZING time. All went pretty smooth. Wesley was sick two days while we were there, but with my mother being with us we were still able to do everything we had intended on.
Chiari Malformation (pronounced key-ARE-ee) is a condition in which brain tissue protrudes into your spinal canal. It occurs when part of your skull is abnormally small or misshaped, pressing on your brain and forcing it downward.
In July 2008 Wesley was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation, a rare brain disease. He had decompression brain surgery in July 2008. In August 2008 he had a complication from the surgery and had to have a shunt placed in his brain. He has had four shunt revisions and then the shunt removed. After a year of being very sick the shunt was placed back in his brain and he will not be able to live without it. He has been in the ER more then we can count and has had countless other procedures done. Our seven year old daughter Kyra has Chiari as well; but at present time it is Mild. We have faith in God and we open our hearts to God's plan as we know he will take care of our family. Thank you for visiting our blog and praying for our family.
