the countdown is on

This Friday Isaac has his bronch and capping trial, and nerves are on edge around here! If you know anything about Isaac you know that he sabotages all attempts at capping trach, and this time is no different! Last night our sweet boy picked up a container of powder and dumped it on his face… none went straight into his trach, but paranoid mama wasn’t sure if he inhaled it. Of course this morning we have a boy who only wants to lay around and breathe fast! I quickly emailed his pediatrician, who left me feeling much less anxious – we think the lungs might be a little bit irritated, but otherwise ok. As the day progressed he got up and started moving, of course just to make me look like a paranoid overreacting mama! I think he is in a bit of a funk, but hopefully it’s allergies and all of our tricks will keep him healthy 🙂
Isaac had a wonderful weekend – gym class Saturday morning was a blast, he loves to show off his tricks! On Sunday morning Isaac and I headed to the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in DC with some friends to cook brunch for the families staying there. The RMH in Minneapolis is literally like home to us – one of the most important things they do is provide meals. It’s not just a meal though – it’s time to be around other families and talk and relax and network a little bit 🙂 It was so important to us to give back in some way, and luckily the RMH in DC has given us that chance.
It’s great to introduce some of our non RMH friends to this wonderful home away from home, unless you visit and get to know the house it’s hard to understand just how very important this place is to us and our sanity. Bringing our friends there with us is like letting them in on an important secret – you leave happy, fulfilled and so very appreciative for what you have!
We are looking forward to getting through the capping trial this weekend (and a weekend of PICU life!) and getting back to serve dinner at RMH in a few weeks with a bigger crew 🙂
