It's been a few days. . .

. . .so I thought I'd update to tell you all nothing much has changed! We are liking the rather mundane, dull, boring, etc. last several days. Connie hasn't thrown us any curveballs and it has been nice! We've been spending lots of time with family and friends and his cousins from TX even made a special trip up here to see him. He's been eating more (actually asking to eat!) and has generally been acting like he's feeling better. He even climbed the stairs a few times and is carrying his laptop around again! He has a couple of "regular kid" things coming up on the calendar including library story time and a couple of "not-so-regular kid" things coming up like more labwork and a pacemaker phone transmission. He's getting his labwork done tomorrow to check his INR and next Monday, we are going to check the pacemaker and if it shows no history of high rates or atrial flutter, then he'll come off the Coumadin on 8/17, a week before his cath. I thought I'd share a cute thing he did tonight. He and Mookie were sitting at the table having a bedtime snack and watching Wall-E while Greg and I were in the living room. When it got to the part where the rocket was landing and there was an explosion, he yelled out, "Oh noooooooo" so emphatically it was ridiculous! It was such appropriate timing and so hilarious! Greg and I just started laughing and praising him. We didn't even think he was paying attention to the movie at all and then out of the blue comes this comment!

I am glad to hear that things have calmed down a bit and that Conway is doing well. The story about Wall-E made me smile because my little 07' march monkey loves that movie!

Thank God for "normal" days.
