(He is in red....he had a haircut (SHAVE!) last week)
You might wonder what "lower limb issues - at this point he can only walk when holding onto something" means. These two videos should provide an explanation.
We are EXTREMELY blessed to have "met" a volunteer named Tammy at our boys' orphanage.
has been invaluable in providing me LOTS of information about the four
years of Darren's life before he joined our family. I have journaled all
I have learned in his baby book. Simple questions such as - "what do
they eat?" or "do they take showers or baths?" or "how do they handle
haircuts" (This last one I asked before I cut his hair for the first
time) or "do they wear pajamas?" or "do they celebrate birthdays". All
simple questions - but information...clues into our son's beginning.
She is NOW providing us with almost WEEKLY pictures and videos of our little guy!!!
He asked this morning "Do I still have a family?"....awww sweet boy - YES!!
We got about six hours of interrupted sleep...my-o-my do they check for vitals OFTEN!
PRAISING GOD Darren is doing so well!
He is eating breakfast and not throwing up so that is AWESOME!
(Of course someone from anesthesia just came in and said "oh - yes, we could have given him lots of other meds. for nausea last night." And the TWO doctors who came in last night said nothing more could be given....)
We are waiting for a chest x-ray.....AND for the play room to open!
Darren is hoping to be rid of his heart monitor wires and his IV ASAP!!
*One VERY funny story from yesterday....Darren asked EVERYONE he met yesterday their age! His first comment to them "How old you is?" hee hee! AND only one person told him!! The rest evaded the question which was REALLY quite funny!!*
