Where have I been?!
Wow, how time has gotten away from me the past few weeks! I'm sure you guys are wondering what is going on with Cory. Well.... he has been through the ringer, that's for sure! He has been in and out of the hospital due to being in so much pain. He had a kidney stent placed and was just admitted to the hospital again a couple days ago for pain control. He just got home this morning and is actually more comfortable. On Wednesday he will have a shockwave treatment called lithotripsy. That will hopefully break up the kidney stone. When the doctor placed the stent, he tried to break it up, but it was too large. That's also the reason why he can't just "go up" and get it out. After that, he will have to pass the stone and then he can have the stent removed a few days later. Whew! I can't imagine! Ouch, huh? We can't wait till all this is over.
Parker is almost 1...only another week! He is getting his first haircut tomorrow, which will be so fun, but also sad at the same time. Seems like only a few months ago he was born and we were just settling in as a family. Anyways, we are just getting things ready for his first bday party. We are just going to have family over and have cupcakes and hang out. Nothing too over the top!
Callie is doing great too. Six weeks old now. She is still getting up a couple times a night, every 3-4 1/2 hours, eating 3.5-5.5 ounces at a time. We switched her formula to similac sensitive because she was have extreme gas that seemed painful and real runny stools. The formula seems to be working great. She is much more comfortable and grunting and pulling her legs up a lot less. I can't wait for her appt. in a couple weeks so I can see how much weight she's gained. Cory and I think it's so weird to have a baby so alert and awake all the time while so young. We joke that Parker didn't wake up until after Christmas when we brought him home :)
Other than that, we are getting ready for Halloween. Parker is going to be Superman and Callie will be a ladybug. How cute! Can't wait to take lots of pictures.
