Gpa John's Bday party

Kennedy absolutely loves milkshakes! She always signs please and more whenever we have one, but this one was made especially by gma for her
Tyce was konked out for once and missed the family photo

She has only just begun and was so excited she got her own glass

We are so glad to have him home

My kiddos

Today we got to enjoy celebrating Gpa John's bday at the Logue house in Oly. We were so thankful to have Tyce with us. It has been a whirlwind of a week and it definitely has taken a toll on us. For the past week, I haven't broke down or cried over dealing with Tyce in the hospital until today. Since he was born it seems like it has been one stress after another. First he was in the NICU, then the doctors scared us by telling us he had signs of Downs (which he is totally fine and healthy now), failed his hearing test, then back to the hospital for a week because he had a virus. On top of that, I was recovering from a csection, functioning on little sleep and just started experiencing the baby blues. Not to mention...we do have a 17 month old that keeps me busy throughout the day. Dusty worked the entire week while Tyce was in the hospital so that we could afford the coming hospital bills so I had to try and comprehend all the doctor lingo that was thrown at me through the day. It has been really hard but I have had a lot of supportive friends and family checking in and praying for us. Dusty has been very supportive, as much as he can, but I am stubborn and sometimes neglect to ask for help when I need it. Half of the time I don't feel like I need it, but after this emotional breakdown today, I realize that I do need to ask for help more often.
We are so thankful Tyce is healthy and home again. He has a repeat ear checkup this month and hopefully that goes well. A lot of times csection babies fail their first test so we hope this is the case. Keep him in your prayers when it comes to this please! Poor guy. He is definitely a little more high maintenance than Kennedy so that is also difficult. I think it took me a couple hours to finally get him to sleep tonight, which was only about 10 minutes ago around 11:30. That stinker! In the hospital, the nurses woke him up every 2 hours to feed him so he is on that routine and hopefully breaks out of that soon. This week tyce has a couple of doc appts to checkup on everything, so I am just praying for strength to deal with another somewhat stressful week. I don't think it will compare to last week though. I will keep you posted. Thank you again for all your prayers and support in all of this. God is good and I know Tyce is in his hands. That is the one thing that gives me comfort and strength in all of this. Boy, kids are stressful and it has only just begun. I can't wait for the teenage poor parents, now I know the stress I caused them!

Oh man! I am so sorry that you have been going through so much! Kyle was admitted to the hospital when he was 4 weeks old also for an infection. It was so scary and stressful! Sending lots of good thoughts your way for a better week and smooth doctors appointments!
