Ive got nothing

I have been MIA for a few days. Josh went back to work which means I am flying solo for all 6 therapy's and doctor appointment, I forgot how difficult it is. I just keep telling myself it will be easier once the kids are in a routine again. This week we headed up to Madison to see the ENT and have a hearing test for Malachi.Good news: both tubes are still open!! Bad news: we still can't get an accurate hearing test on him. He is either to smart, stubborn or both to pay attention to the noises. I bet if they played music he would look! We got back in 2 months for another test and 6 months to see the Dr. M. Speaking of Dr. M, we just LOVE him. He always asks Malachi to show him new signs and gives him a big hug when we get there. Makes me smile every time!

Today we headed to Oak Lawn to see Dr. N, Malachi's neurosurgeon here in IL. We got the results of his MRI last week. Good news: It showed less fluid which means at this time there is no need for another surgery! Bad news: Fooled ya, there is no bad news! We got the all clear we don't have to go back for 6 months, well as long as there is no further drainage! Hip, hip, hooray!

And now I leave you with a few pictures:
 Riding the tractor at the fair, doesn't he look enthused?

We have a part time thumb sucker on our hands! If there is no binkey these hands can read the thumb will suffice!
