Liz finally let me curl her hair! Isn't she beautiful?

Kyler showing his green cast

My apologies to everyone if I've left you hanging on a wire. I only have one excuse and that is the ugly word procastination. As you can see July has been a busy month. It seems to come all at once sometimes. Plus between Eli's testing and Kyler's broken arm we've spent many hours waiting at the doctor's office.

We went up to Primary Children's Hospital and back twice for different tests, including an MRI. Thank goodness it seems to just be big adenoids, like our other kids. We are thankful it isn't anymore serious than that. It can be fixed easily with surgery. I am still, however, waiting to talk to the ENT (Ear Nose and Throat Specialist) to see what we do from here. I suspect we will schedule the surgery sometime in the near future. Which means we will have to make a couple of more trips up there, one for the surgery and another for a follow-up. Dr. Daftary would like to have a sleep study done as well. So in a nutshell, we are not done yet, but at least we know what it is. I have also started giving him a more concentrated formula to give him more calories and he is finally gaining more. He is now around 14 lbs!! (he was only 12 lbs 13 oz 2 weeks ago). Thank you for all your concern and prayers! We are pulling through! We love you all and hope that things are going well in your lives!
