Just add it to the list

Here is a list of all the medical diagnosis my children have had in the past 2 years.

AV canal defect x2 (With open heart surgery for each)
Silent Aspiration
Hearing Loss
Vision Loss
Pulmonary Hypertension
Heart Failure
Pneumonia (to many to count)
RSV x2
Human Metapneumovirus
NG tube
Brain Surgery
Stitch abscess x2
Adenoids out
Ear tubes x2
Anal Fissure (ouch)
Urinary Tract Infection
Sickle Cell Trait
Right Branch Bundle Block x2
Super Ventricular Tachycardia
Down syndrome x2
Sleep Apnea

and our latest ailment to add to the list....C-Diff.

Poor Eli has been battling the runny poops for weeks and we FINALLY got a good number 2 sample from him...the results confirm that there is a nasty little critter (or many) living in his intestines. Ugh. We are hoping that after 2 weeks of Flagyl he will have nice number 2's. But for now we wash, bleach and repeat all things in our house to keep this nasty cootie away from big brother. 

After that lovely picture...hope you all have a great weekend!!

Amazing list! And you still manage to enjoy such wonderful family activities whenever you can! Kudos to the Hortons for providing the love and support your little tykes need to survive their daunting health challenges. Malachi & Eli are truly blessed, as we are all blessed to have them in the extended Horton family!
