Recent Happenings

We are just back from a clinic visit to CHOA for Ian's transplant. We have to go about every two months for the doctors there to see him. He is doing so well and they call him a miracle given his liver disease. He is still in the middle of the pack for a liver so we continue to wait. It seems so endless now but we know it will end one of these days with an excited phone call that a donor is available.
Brett was able to go and see the Giants play against the Atlanta Braves 3 nights while we were there and saw Barry Bonds get a home run. He actually made it on to ESPN for the 3rd game because of a 3 run home run hit that landed almost right where he was sitting. Cool stuff!!!!
As usual, more on the next blog....EJH

August 1st Already

So it is amazing to me that it is already August. The summer seems to be slipping awasy so quickly.

Ian and I went to see Open Season today with his Grandma Meldrum at the Children's showing at the theatre. He did pretty well. It was the third time we've gone to the free movie.

Still no real change or news on his liver transplant. We'll have labs done again in about two weeks so hopefully that will help him to climb. It is amazing how well he does with labs, and everything else. What a trooper. He knows all about meds and is almost to the point where I think he could do the meds himself.

We are taking a small day trip to see some of Brett's family this weekend in Winston-Salem, NC. I am personally excited to get my hair cut :) Ian is also looking pretty shaggy. Brett's brother comes home on leave from his tour in Kosovo this weekend and Brett is really looking forward to seeing him. He will come and stay with us for a few days.

It has finally rained for a few days so the grass is starting to green up again to the point where I think it could use cutting. I'll try to get that done today or tomorrow if I can; however, the mower needs an oil change and I have no idea how to do that at all. Eeek!

As always.....more on the next post.
