Happy Memorial day, too many pictures and an update...

Thank you to all those out there who have and still are fighting for our freedom.

We are all enjoying an extra day at home and just relaxing.

Carson has been well lately. We have seen a few extra seizures with this last full moon, but seem to be back to normal now. Last week we had several tests run on his blood to check all kinds of things. We were mainly worried about his extra water retention, edema. Carson had gained another pound in 2 weeks and seemed to be more puffy. Checking his blood was able to tell us if he needed a diuretic (to make him pee more) or to add more protein (sometimes if the body doesn't have enough protein the water does not move like it should). While we were taking some blood we decided to run all the tests we could. CBC, BMP, Chem 7, liver and kidney function. So any way, to our surprise all his tests came back normal! His bilirubin was a little low, but nothing to be concerned with right now. No meds are needed for his extra fluid, to help get rid of it we are going to do more movement and massaging. We are so happy to hear this great news!!
Just me and my dad.
These kids wear me out!
But I love them.

Cool dinosaur, thanks for sharing with me.

So cute.
These are my new Crocs...
Look out, they may bite!
Wow, look at these rolls.
Big yawn.
Hair cut with Aunt Jen.
First time using the buzzer, no too sure of this.
But all is good when all said and done.
I was telling Aunt Jen all about it.

Me and my cousins.
Yea, that is the spot.
