The boys are covered in scrapes from falling down and fighting, along with mosquito bites and now nasty BITE MARKS! They're both pretty much big hot messes right now.
Tomorrow is a GI follow up for Jax with a psych-feeding session afterwards. Jax is still doing great with no vomiting, but he's still battling with the diarrhea. I'm hoping we'll see a little weight gain tomorrow.
The boys made quite the scene at the Baby Gap outlet store on Saturday. I had two friends with me, and it was still chaos! I would've totally made millions if it was filmed! I was mortified... oh yes, the terrible twos have begun!
Pictures of the boys at Krista's house.
Jaxon loving her piano while "eating his lunch".
Brady enjoying a snack at his table.
I downloaded the pictures off of Jason's phone for that last picture above, and I found pictures from the past two years that really tell a story. I thought I'd share:
Jaxon in the hospital getting his first g-tube from the NG tube he got in the NICU.
I starred at these next few photos for a LONG time. I knew Jason took pictures of this, but I never went looking for them or downloaded them until today.
This is Jaxon during his motility study.
The screen on the right shows his nerve function activity in all the different areas of his GI system from a probe that is through his stomach and down his intestines. He has an IV because they put him under general anesthesia to place the probes.
We sat in this room for 8 hrs for the test. He fell asleep once and the nurse pushed us out of the room to get some food. We were told a few hours later that he had Pseudo Obstruction and would most likely live out his life on TPN... a shortened life, but we had to start thinking of his comfort.
This picture is quite the memory. Jaxon had a massive relapse from the stress of the motility test and ended up hospitalized on TPN. Jason and I were devastated thinking that it was the beginning of the end. Here we are with the boys trying to make them happy in Jax's hospital room... and I've started my first step of researching alternative medicine. I'm reading a pamphlet on medical acupuncture thinking this can't be our only fight...
Enough of that...This shot just makes me SMILE! Chubby Brady on Jason's shoulders at the zoo. A funny side note... the boys are still wearing those clothes from last summer, this summer!
This is Jason's creation. He likes to screw with Brady's hair when it's longer. And yes, we're in public in this picture... actually in a restaurant!
