A quick update on Andrew...more later tonite
















After the first few days on medicine for his h pyloria and having episodes of violent vomiting .. I can share that we have had 3 days of no violoent vomiting and 2 of them were actually vomit free...He did spit up a bit during his nap today but nothing like he was last week. He does seem calmer . His appetite is not much and I would not worry about it except that he takes all of his fluids in his food from a spoon so when he refuses to eat we force him to drink with a syring every so often to get some gatorade in him. He still has very soaking wet diapers 3 times a day at least so he is fine....He won't take a bottle or cup ( sippy or anything ) ... and as I have shared he is in control with this... nothing much we can do to get him to accept other ways of drinking. We have another week on the antibiotics and 5 more on the previcid. It is the antibiotics that have caused the problems we think.
Our friend,Rachel with CF- did have her double lung transplant on Saturday. She came thru surgery exceptionally well. She knows sign language and that evening was signing with her family ( she had a trach. )---Sun. am she was even walking. They took the trach out Sat. evening and she is now in a step down unit and her sweet hubby was able to s[end the nite with her in this room--This is totally amazing and we are praising God for this. She still has a long road to recovery and we have not heard any updates today... please continue to pray for her. Her family has a special place in our hearts.

Great news on both Andrew and your friend!

Have you heard about operatic soprano Charity Tilleman-Dick, who is back to singing after a double lung trasplant? I hope Rachel's recovery will be just as wonderful as hers!

Hello, I have found a very cute little cartoon about adoption/fostering. I thought you and your family would like it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBqdcvAkjWk
