Hey guys! Those of you on facebook may have read this already but I wanted to add it on here for those without facebook! I kind of feel like we are really being tested right now. I just keep telling myself that God doesn't give us more than we can handle so here it all goes.
Thursday, two hours before I was supposed to pick up Jon, Adrianna fell off the monkey bars on our swingset and broke her arm. Instead of heading to base to get Jon he had to be taken to the hospital by his 1st Sgt. to see us there---Welcome Home Jon! She had a scheduled appointment to see the Ortho guy on Thursday next week but for some reason they called yesterday and said after another guy looked at the xrays they want her to come in Monday. Not sure at all what this means but she did break her arm in two places. Please pray that all is ok and she will heal quickly.
Took Michael, Kayleigh and Kiersten in to the doctors yesterday for their 10yr and 3yr check ups. Good news first---Michael is 10% in height and weight (not sure he thinks that is good news though), Kayleigh is 50% in height (no longer worried about her height) and 75% in weight, and Kiersten is 75% in weight and off the chart in height---now I know why I thought Kayleigh was too short for her age!
Now on to the other news. Kayleigh has to go to a surgeon on Nov. 9th for the hernia that she has in her belly button. They just want to make sure it is going to close up on it's own and is a little worried that she is 3 and it hasn't plus I guess she felt something-I don't know-needless to say she has to go to be checked.
Kiersten is the one I am really worried about. When I took her in to the cardiologist last year they said she had a small leak in her heart but not to worry because even some people that have normal hearts have leaks there. Well, today at her check up with her pediatrician she heard a murmur. She said it was a small one and I shouldn't worry too much until I see the cardiologist again, which isn't until the 20th of Nov. Needless to say it feels like I have forever to worry! Please just pray for all of this. I told Jon that as sudden as it seems that the doctor is hearing this it can go away that quickly if God wants it too but I am still very scared! I won't have any updates on any of this until the dates that I mentioned for each. Jody-I don't know how you do it with having more than one girl go through this stuff-I am going crazy with just one of them!
