The park and other stuff

This is pretty much how our morning went. Drew had preschool this morning (it was bunny day) and I took Ava to the park to play with her friends. What a fun mom, right? Well for some reason Ava was not having fun. She did enjoy the swings, but the rest of the time every word out of her mouth was no, and she whined, cried and was generally a disaster the rest of the morning. At least we were outside in the nice weather!

Drew had an appointment at the Spine Center this afternoon. It was just to evaluate the inserts he has for his flat feet. The doctor said his inserts still fit, he has room to grow and he definitely needs them. He said Drew pronates quite a bit more than a typical four year old and if he doesn't look a lot better in six to eight months we might have to do something more serious. He didn't say what that might be and I didn't ask, because I don't really want to know. We'll cross that bridge if and when we come to it.

There has been no news on the surgery front. I haven't heard back from Dr. Hanley, although the cardiologist said we probably wouldn't. He said from his 30 years of experience working with surgeons that they don't like to "compete" with each other and Dr. Hanley probably feels like he already gave us his opinion and wouldn't like to comment on what Dr. Azakie said. So we're still thinking.

Here's a couple of other pictures from the park this morning. She did have some fun.

I agree!

I don't think Ava was as whiny as you think. It's just always worse when it's your own kid. And I've never seen a kid with a more adorable "sad face". Breaks my heart!

A lot going on in your house. I will be praying for the spine stuff. Ava does make a really cute sad baby girl..

Oh my goodness...she was NOT a happy girl in that first picture. I'm so glad she finally had some fun.

Thank you for your comment on the blog. I constantly hear this from other DiGeorge families about how careful the doctors still tell us to be and I don't really understand it. I figure this is hopefully the last year we have to be like this so I'm just going to tough it out and get through it.

Take Care

That first picture is priceless! I love it! Too cute!

Have a great weekend...hopefully with a lot of the smiles and not so many of the adorable frowns and "no".
