Tucker update

Yesterday tucker went in for his 4th endoscopy and 2nd colonoscopy. This kid is a trooper and is most definitely my hero!! The day before the procedure we had to start the 'prep' for this procedure. I had been dreading that day for weeks. It is absolutely awful. Well in a nutshell it started out rough but my tough little man powered through and didn't whine at all! He even slept all night without having had anything to eat besides popcicles and juice. The ride into the hospital was pretty good, aside from his little booty being sore from all the pooping (for lack of a better term;)). Anyways, he was in such a good mood and all the nurses just loved him!! They went on and on about how cute he is:) he is such a little ham even under the worst circumstances. Anyways, the procedure took about 2 hours. He did great. From the looks of it the doctor told us that the inflammation looks much better, but will have to wait until the biopsies come back to see if that is correct. Sometimes it can appear to look good, but microscopically there can be severe inflammation. This has happened to us before. So we should know by Friday. However, I am so happy to see that it looks better. Compared to last time when it was really inflamed and he has ulcers too. So praise be to God!!! Here are a few pics of our trooper:)

These first two pics are of tuck during his prep! You would never know!

Waiting to be taken back, with a smile on his face!

Poor guy was out!

This picture is a good depiction of our champ and my hero!!!

Thanks for stopping by and thank you for your thoughts and prayers, we could definitely feel them:) please continue to pray for answers for our baby!! Love you all:)

Tripp's birthday week

My sweet precious boy turns 4 on Tuesday!! I cannot believe it! We spent Saturday doing things that he loves!! We went to the mall at his request. He wanted to go to the "wego" store! So off to the Lego store we went:) he picked out a fire truck Lego set and tuck picked a "choo choo". Afterwards we walked around, rode the carousel, had chickfila, shopped a bit and let Tripp pick out a new shirt (a monster truck one of course;)). On the way home we stopped by to see my sister's new house and Tripp got to run around and play with his cousins. We went home after and he and daddy put his Lego together while tuck took a nap:) the rest of the afternoon was spent playing outside:) later on, our sweet babysitter Serena came over so Carl and I could go to dinner. It was a great Saturday!! We will continue to celebrate Tripp and make him feel special for his birthday week!! His actual birthday, we will be taking him to the rodeo for his first time:) here are a few recent pics :)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope all have a blessed week:)
