Dreary January

Sorry I have not posted much this month it has been a very blah month!  This weekend is the first one this month were someone was not sick! Had another bad stomach bug go through the house. My boys are doing well now Aiden has started to crawl forward. So cute to see such a little guy crawl. He isn't going to far he always seems happy to be were he is at.

No news on his cardiology appointment yet! I keep calling and they do not have the appointment book yet. This is starting to get very annoying especially the reason behind it. Obama care has to approve the appointment books before they take appointment for April. Apparently they are limiting the amount of procedures that can be done per month. Hope I can get an appointment for him soon. Because there is one thing my cutie is occasionally doing that it bothering me. The other night after he had been asleep for over an hour he started breathing really fast and hard. As if he had recently exerred himself physically but he had not he was asleep. I rubbed his back and that slowed his breathing. But I know the breathing fast is a heart sign. :/

Not giving up

Aiden was starting to eat more solids foods and then? He  got a stomach bug and that stopped all the progress he had. Now when I give wholesome of the yogurt  melts he just gags on them. He has a big gag reflux and it sucks. Is it bad I want to get him to the point that he can eat birthday cake doe his first birthday? Other heart moms have said to let that idea go but we are two months away so no not giving up on that hope yet!  I will k see p trying to give him some food in hopes that I van get him to eating food like that. We will see.

New Year Resolutions?

I have never been one to make resolutions and that's not going to change any.There is one big change this year I feel like I am starting this New Year blind. I honestly do not know what will happen this year. Feel like I know less then last year which is odd. Considering what we went through last year. Last year we had a plan this year?Nada, no plan no idea of what is ahead. Is his heart Okay? Or will Widen need more surgeries?I don't know and we won' t know until April? Possibly sooner if there is an opening. We have made no plans for vacations because of this. Not that we can afford to go anywhere because we can't. Still paying on Aiden's open heart surgery from last March. What I  know is that we are planning to take time of around his first birthday. In- laws will be here that may be are vacation this year.

Now to the one thing I do have control over his first birthday party. Hubby and me can' t agree on a theme superheroes or Star Wars. Hubby wants Star Wars because he says the force is strong with him. I want superhero party because he's my hero! Will get it figured out we have time.
