Drum Roll Please.......





We had a doctors appointment today. And....
Diezel was up to 19 pounds.
Daizey weighed in at an official 16 pounds.

And more good news.
Diezel's CT scan looked normal and his heart looked fantastic. Now if we can only find out why he keeps passing out.

And I'm feeling a lot better. The second round of meds have me feeling somewhat like my old self. I kind of feel like I've aged a lot this last 6 weeks:)

Poor NuNu had a 104.8 fever this weekend. Oh Man. It looks like he caught Coxsackie from Faith.
I have a question for those of you with large families; Is there ever a time when everyone in the same house feels good at once?

Hey...Where did you get their RED hats? I cannot find any kids RED products anywhere...

Ginny said...

The twins look wonderful! So happy they are gaining weight-hope you figure out what is causing the fainting spells soon.

Oh, they are just TOO cute!! I demand MORE pictures!!!! :0)

I'm so glad they are both doing better and gaining weight... and I am SO glad you have a peace about the scans. It can be so scary not knowing what is going on -- but at least now you have ruled out a lot of possibilities. I will pray that you either find the root cause soon, or that the symptoms miraculously disappear!!!

you all look fabulous. and if five kids counts as a big family... knock on wood... NO one has been sick this year. NO ONE. either that, or i have a really short memory. :)

So glad to hear that the kids have gained weight. They look great.

What a relief to hear that you are all doing better.

I can relate on the fainting/passing out. It is a weekly occurrence around here with Tissy. I know it can feel overwhelming. Praying that you find the answers you need.

Yes it is possible. But watch out for pink eye. Blessings on your family
