6 Months

Malachi will be 6 months old tomorrow! We are celebrating with his 6 months shots at the doc. Yuck. When he got his 4 month shots he was a BEAST afterward. Tomorrow I will be brining the Tylenol and will be ready to give it to him. We will also give him his favorite dinner...sweet potatoes! Exciting day, I know.

The BIG day is getting closer and closer. We are busy getting things in line. Josh is working on sub plans for 7 to 10 days, I've been busy talking to the PICU social worker trying to line up our stay at the Ronald McDonald House and we have both been going over finances for our week in Chicago. Not to mention we are getting Malachi dedicated the sunday before we leave and hosting a big lunch at our house afterwards! And while we have all of this going on, I still have to take him to 6 doc appoints in 2 weeks! Soon this will all be over and we will be wondering what to do with all our free time!

Good news, his cough is getting a lot better!! I have only heard him cough twice today! Praise God. Josh is currently sucking boogies out! It seems like the never ending processes. He is a boogie making machiene!

I will be posting more and more as we get closer to the big date! Keep praying for Malachi!!!

Happy 6 month birthday little one! I hope you have a good day, despite the shots-yuck! I'm the worst in our family about getting shots- Dom does better than mommy every year at flu shot time! Trying to catch up a little here (as I just found your blog from your comment on mine), sounds like surgery is in Chicago? Does that mean you live in IL or are traveling to get the surgery done? One thing that helped our finances a lot while Dom had his surgery was the hospital house I stayed at had a fridge and kitchen so we could bring in groceries and cook...I don't know if RMH are set up the same way, but you might ask....It's been 4yrs since Dom had his heart surgery-while the actual event was nerve-wrecking, the outcome is a healthy, beautiful, obnoxious (at times), little 4 1/2 yr old...you all will be in our thoughts and prayers as you start the next leg of the journey to a healthy heart for your sweet pea. He's gorgeous :)
