Sometimes we go forever without a visit to the hospital, then we seem to visit often. Last week we visited twice. Sarah had her required 3 ear infections for her tubes to be replaced. So we went in for a quick ear tube placement surgery. She did great. Her speech had really been affected by her infections. She had fluid in her ears at surgery. She is now fluid free and talking much better. We go back at the end of the month for a full hearing evaluation. Isaac decided that weekend that he has never seen the ER, so it was his turn. He started screaming and we could not soothe him. Since he has a possible hernia and is generally a happy easy baby the pediatrician sent us to the ER. No bulging of the hernia area. No strep. All test were normal. We are not real sure what was wrong. We have been gluten free for Sarah and we think he got some gluten when we ate out the night before and had horrible stomach cramps. He is fine now. Praying we all stay well from here on out.
We are a family of five who have been blessed by God. Doug and I were married in 2002 and immediately wanted to start a family. God blessed us with our son Elijah in 2003 through the beauty of birth. Elijah loves to play outdoors and to play with his Nitendo. We were blessed with Sarah in 2007 through the beauty of adoption. Sarah has Down syndrome, but is not defined by it. She is proving all of the statistics wrong and is growing and achieving at a record pace. We were blessed with Isaac in 2010 to complete our family. He is also adopted and has Down syndrome, excited to watch him grow!! Doug is a utility forester with the local utility company. I, Robyn, am a stay at home mom who is never at home. I am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor and I love my oils! Elijah in the sixth grade and loves all things mindcraft and Star Wars. Sarah is 9 and in the 2nd grade. Isaac is almost 5 and doing preschool work. We are a homeschooling family that lives life to the fullest. I love my life and I am so blessed.
