Today, I am VERY thankful for my health and the health of my friends and family members!! God has graciously gifted us with recoveries that cover the gamete (stroke, cancer, paralysis, surgeries, etc.)

He has also shown me through these illnesses that He is good. All the time. No matter what the diagnosis or the outcome: God is good all the time!!!

Buzz Lightyear Brave

A wise observer once said to me, "Wow, you guys don't do anything the easy way!" Boy did we prove that to be true these last four days!!!

Barnum was recently diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea aka neither he nor his parents have slept in 3 1/2 years. Turns out his tonsils and adenoids are alarmingly L-A-R-G-E!! These enlarged devils cause him to wake up anywhere from 2-6 times a night and have also given him a mild-to-moderate hearing loss.

To alleviate all of this drama, he was scheduled for a tonsil-adenoidectomy and bilateral PE tube placement.

Here is Barnum awaiting his premed or "sleepy cocktail."

Barnum likey his sleepy cocktail!!!
Here is how this precious angel spent the next 48+ hours!!! He was supposed to go home 24 hours later, however, his little lungs didn't participate quite the way they should have!! Barnum had bronchiolitis and couldn't maintain a proper oxygen level.

Bless his heart!!! This little boy had to endure around the clock breathing treatments (which he equates with torture), constant O2 and IV's.
He was very, very brave during his stay. Thankfully, he is now at home with us and doing well.

Here are Barnum and Bailey congratulating each other on a job well done and enjoying friendly competition. I am sure you can imagine how it ends....

Easter Egg Hunt

Bailey is usually my smiley, happy baby. However, he heard there were consumable prizes in the eggs and when it comes to food he is nothing but serious.

Barnum and Bailey get down to business!

Sweet Eureka! The coveted M & M's!!!!

BTW...have I ever mentioned the incredible rush of endorphins I receive when Blogger spellcheck spits out at me..."No misspellings found!!??"

Everything is Coming Up Onions

I am happy to announce our first little sprouts from seeds we planted in the garden!! Our onion seeds are starting to grow!! The only items planted from seeds in our garden are the onions, our newest tomato plant (Barnum started it as a seed at MDO and we just transplanted it), chives and cosmic dragon (purple!!) carrots.

Here are our onion sprouts!!!

Here is Barnum's tomato plant!! I am insanely excited about this addition.

The first bloom in our garden is on our Poblano plant.
