Holy Crap is it December Already!

So things have been hoppin' around our house for quite a while. Miles is fine, Riley is fine. I am good and Sean is good. Just "stuff" ya know?

Miles has had kidney stones, now has a hernia and was diagnosed with 4th cranial nerve palsy over the last several weeks. We go tomorrow to meet with the surgeon to see about the hernia. We are talking to neurology in reference to the palsy - they think it is caused by his epilepsy. We (the pediatrician and us) feel that it may be time for a new MRI because the 'eye thing' started out of the blue - well not completely out of the blue. His eye has been turning too far in since his first seizure when we were in KY last Christmas. Now it is just doing it alot - almost all the time and getting stuck from time to time. Also - with no seizure activity since August we think there might be something else going on. (crap! I don't want something else!)

Overall - he is doing so well! (ya know minus the above) He is kickin' butt in pre-k! (I guess that isn't too hard when he is the only kid in the class that doesn't have developmental delays) He is growing...well I think so...his 2T pants are FINALLY too short (he will be 5 in May).

It turns out that I was diagnosed with the same blood disorder as Riley. (von Willebrand disease) I think back over my playing softball and cheerleading and whatever else I wanted to do and I SOOOO think he can play sports! I told him that if he wanted to sign up for Karate that he could. He said, Mommy the doctor said that I can't so I don't want to. He is such a rule follower :) love him!

My Dad is home from the hospital and cancer free! Thanks for all the prayers and good vibes!

Hopefully it won't be too long before I update again. BUT not having much medical stuff to update isn't really a bad thing - especially this year!
