Update on Daxtonius

When Daxton was in the hospital Ryan gave him a warrior name...Daxtonius Parkerius!! Doesn't that sound manly? Well my little man is doing awesome. He has gained one whole pound!! Yeh for Daxton. He is almost sitting up all by him self, he sits up for a couple of seconds without me holding him up. He is definatly progressing in that area. His throwing up is at a minimun unless I am in a hurry to get somewhere and then it is completly acceptible for his little body to get rid of every ounce of food that is in his stomach. It is so much fun(sarcasm). Last week we had an appointment for Daxton to get his button put in. For the last 2 months he has had a tube coming out of his stomach now he has a little button. It was a simple procedure but it was super sad. His stomach hurt for several days following the button placement.

I had someone ask me if Daxton is really doing as well as I say he is. Yes!! He will forever be on medicine for his heart. We are dealing with developemental delays. But all things in perspective he is doing amazing. He is here with us. I find that every day, every smile, every giggle, every snuggle is another miracle. For where we were six months ago to now, yes my Daxtonius is doing Awesome!!

My sister flew in from Italy for two weeks to be with my Grandma. We had a lot of fun while we were her. I got to meet my new neice. It was so fun to see her as a mommy. While she was her we got together with the family and built paper rockets and launched them off in the church parking lot. The kids loved it. I only had a blanket for Daxton and it was getting cold so we resulted in putting him in this bunny suit to keep him warm. It was pretty hilarious. He reminded me of "Christmas Story" Ryan didn't find it amusing at all, oh well!

So all in all we are doing well. My Grandma is home from the hospital. We are enjoying every moment that she is allowed to stay with us. This has been a very hard couple of weeks and will continue to be a rough road for me and my family. But I do know that we will be carried through these days with the love of my Savior.

It is so fun to catch up on Daxton's progress. He is so handsome. (I'm sure that you already know that.) So glad to hear that he is doing well. They are such little miracles and have been since day one.
I know that you will be comforted as you watch your sweet grandma's health decline. What a blessing the gospel is in our lives. Honestly, what would we do without the knowledge that we have?
