oh boy.... we go again. Well, it looks like Scott had two months of good health. I guess we can be thankful for that, right?! Someone, PLEASE remind me of that!

He is having a lot of pain again, but it's in his stomach this time. He is sick often and randomly throws up. LOVELY, I know! Welcome to my world. He needs your prayers. He is VERY discouraged and upset. Naturally. His (awesome) sister got him in to see a gastroenterologist yesterday. They are going to do a whole new panel of blood work and he goes back December 14. In the meantime, they have put him on a medicine for Crohns. The pain he is experiencing is the same pain he had ten years ago when he was originally diagnosed.

He had a series of blood work done a week ago. That panel revealed that his liver enzymes had jumped up 23 points in four weeks. Another scenario would be infection in his liver. UGH! So, we'll just wait and see. Obviously my concern is that, if it's Crohns in his stomach, there is only a very small part of intestines that it could attack. And he SORT OF needs that for his stoma!!!

Merry Christmas to us. (Sorry, today's not a good day for me! I needed to vent)

I am sharing this with all of you because you guys are always so kind to pray for and support us. Well, we need them AGAIN! Thanks!

On a lighter note, God did bless Scott with a new (to us) truck today! He and his brother in law, Dwayne, drove to Charlotte tonight to pick it up. He is very excited. He has wanted a truck for a very long time. This one was a godsend and a very good deal. I will post those pics soon!!

*Warning* The spell check on this computer is NOT working for some reason. I am VERY, VERY tired and my eyes are a little blurry! So, DO NOT hold me accountable for my spelling in this post. Thank you!

hilton head, part one

We had such a nice time in Hilton Head! The weather was perfect. It wasn't too chilly. I put play clothes on JP thinking he would get really sandy and nasty playing on the beach. Of course, he wanted to play in the water. I told him to get his feet wet, but not his can imagine how that went!

I have a lot of pics to post, so I will post more later. Follow the links on the previous post to view pictures of the scenery and the resort!


We had a great time in Hilton Head! I think it's going to become our new vacation spot!! It is so nice. I have a lot of great pictures to share. You will find pictures of JP, mom and I on this blog. For pictures of the beach, (scenery etc), you can click here. And for a review and pictures of our resort, click here.

I will try and load the pictures tonight! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

hilton head

Well, I hope that everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving. We sure did! JP spent most of the morning/early afternoon with his Nanny and Papa while Scott and I went to see Breaking Dawn Part 1 with his mom and sister. LOVED IT, by the way!! You can read my movie review here.

Tomorrow morning, JP, Nanny and I are heading down to Hilton Head for the weekend. I am very excited! It will be another much needed mini-getaway! Scott and dad are staying behind to help Laurie out with little Preston.

Please keep Laurie in your prayers. She is STILL having problems as as result of her delivery back in March. She goes back to the doctor this Monday. She is having a lot of pain in her lower abdomen and is probably looking at a total hysterectomy. She could really use your prayer support. She is such a trooper!

Well, once again, stay tuned for pictures from our Thanksgiving AND from Hilton Head! Happy weekend, everybody!

battle scar

My brave boy!!

Monday, November 14, 2011

well, we made it to age 5....

.....before we had to get our first set of stitches! I consider that to be an accomplishment! I was sitting in my classroom when the school nurse called me from JP's school.

That's never good.

While running, (and I'm sure acting goofy), on the playground JP fell and cut the back of his head. I left and went to pick him up. Scott and I took him to the doctor and he got THREE stitches! OUCH! He was so brave! I was so proud of him!

I don't have time tonight, but I will post pictures of his battle scars tomorrow!

my favorite kiddos

Well, the pictures are all out of order, but at least I followed through!!

Me and my big boy! Laurie and precious Preston.

These boys LOVE each other!

Pouty-Pouterson....I'm the horrible mommy who wouldn't allow him TWO pieces of candy before dinner! :(

But, oh how quickly we recover...

Uh-oh...there's Pouty again!

Who you lookin' at??

Nighty, Night!

Makin' mud and makin' a mess!

This is better than television!

These baby boys are doing so well!!! JP continues to do well in school and he loves it! Preston is sitting up and hopefully will be crawling soon! Papa is putting carpet in the house to aid in that.

Happy Monday, everyone!

i love my computer

Just kidding! I hate my computer. I was in the middle of trying to update this site last night when my laptop cut off. SHOCKER!!

Anyway, my hope is that I will be able to get a new laptop for Christmas. (*wink* mom...I know you are reading this!) Until then, please just stick with me through these irritating delays!

I will try to get over to my parent's house today to post some updated pictures of the kids!
