MHE Carnival

Matthew's school had it's annual Halloween Carnival on Saturday. So we put the boys in their costumes and headed to play games and have some fun!


I took Ryan and our friend Becca to the Arboretum on Monday October 19. These were the only pictures I took because all they wanted to do was run in the field and then have a picnic.

Matthew had his first of two dentist appointments today, he will be getting a total of 8 fillings. They did 4 today and will do the other 4 on November 13. He did great! We had to get there an hour before his appointment time so they could give him his happy juice, he was quite relaxed by the time he was called back. Once in the room it was apparent I needed to leave, he was starting to get a little anxious but the nurse said once I left he was just fine. She had me pick at him in the middle of his procedure and he was just lying there. He was a little grouchy when he was all done and he really didn't like his mouth being numb. They gave him gas plus 2 novacaine shots. He was so hungry because he couldn't eat or drink anything after midnight. We stopped at Sonic on our way to go pick up Ryan (he went to play at a friends house), Matthew got grilled cheese, apple slices and a chocolate milkshake. When we got home I have never seen him eat so fast, he ate every last crumb and drank the entire small milkshake! I don't have the heart to tell him he has to do this all again:(

Potty Training

We have gotten back into the swing of potty training Ryan since everyone in the house is well. He's been in big boy underwear for 2 days and has not yet gone on the potty. I am hoping if we stick with it he will decide to go in the potty and until then I will be doing laundry everyday.


Alex had her appointment with the cardiologist on Friday and everything looked great! Thank you God!

I Don't Even Know How to Title This Post

We have had another interesting week at our house. Monday-Wednesday were fine. We went to church on Wednesday night for dinner and the boys had choir practice. We got home around 7:45 and Matthew started complaining of a sore throat then I noticed he was warm. Took his temp and of course he was running a fever. I called into work for Thursday, let's remember I only work 2 days a week and I have already used my 3 sick days for the school year and it's only October!

Thursday morning I drop Ryan off at preschool and Matthew and I are headed home when I get a phone call that Alex has passed out at school. I rush to the school and right after I arrive the paramedics arrive. They check her vitals and everything is normal so they decide she does not need to go to the hospital. I did take her home and get her to the doctor. I'm trying to keep this brief. the doctor did an exam and found nothing out of the ordinary. She related her passing out to something called Hair Grooming Syncope (one of her friends was braiding her hair). Her dad did some research and found that while yes you can pass out from someone grooming your day there is usually an underlying condition. We decided to take her to another doctor for another opinion. We saw the doctor yesterday morning, he did an exam then ordered some blood work. He also recommended that we take her to a Cardiologist for an Echo cardiogram. If that comes back normal he would like us to go to a Neurologist. We should have her blood work back by mid-week. I will keep the blog updated on what is going on with Alex.

Back to Matthew, poor kid had felt bad and I haven't been able to give him my full attention. I did take him to the doctor yesterday afternoon (so yes 2 doctor appointments in 1 day). He tested negative for the flu and for strep. I took him because I thought he might have strep since he was complaining so much about his throat. He seems a little better this morning, at least no fever.

Here's hoping we have a boring weekend.
