A Full Day of Specialists plus a Pumpkin Carving

Tomorrow is going to be a jam packed day at the Medical Center in Houston. Since I have to be at Texas Children's before 9am and that's crossing Houston during rush hour, I really should already be asleep because it will be an early morning. Andrew has an appointment with a PM&R doctor (Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation), then I have my dermatology check up, and then we see Andrew's Orthopaedic Surgeon and then we'll have his biannual hip x-ray. Hopefully everything will run smoothly and we won't be stranded anywhere for too long.

My parents are out of town so Kenny is taking Adam to school in the morning and then my sister is picking him up and watching him until we return. I'm praying I don't need any biopsies done because I won't have anyone to sit with Andrew during that. I had some done last time and they were fine so I'm hoping I get a pass this time. Dana loaned me a single stroller since I don't have one so I can strap Andrew down, park him in the corner of the procedure room with a movie while they cut on me if I have too. But I'm praying it won't even be an issue ;-).

It will be an exhausting day for both of us but it will be nice to get all this done in one trip instead of several.

Backing up a bit to last week. We carved our very first pumpkin in the nearly 5 years that we've been married and the first also for our boys. They enjoyed watching and Adam was more than willing to dig in and help but Andrew wanted nothing to do with touching pumpkin guts. I think it turned out nice, way to go Daddy!

Adam helps with the nose

Andrew helps cut out the eye

Another fun "first" and another good memory made

Hope all went well today!
Praying right now!
Psalm 116:1-4 I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow. Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.

Continuing to lift up prayers!
Psalm 116:5-9 Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee. For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
