Waiting

That sums it up around here....alot of waiting. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but none the less still waiting.

Bailey went on Monday to have her staples removed and she was a trooper. I know I wouldn't take it as well as she did. BUT she still needs to have her cone on as the one side is still looking icky and she won't stop licking it. I am taking her in once again today as I found two staples that were hiding, I guess, so off to the vet we go.
We put duct tape around the edge as she LOVES to ram anyone and anything with that cone....I think in hopes that if she annoys enough it will get removed, LOL NOT!
Our garden is growing like crazy due to the heavy rains (unfortunately so is the weeds)....but here are some recent pictures of our 1st garden.




Even the plants that the deer hit/ate are growing back :) I'm going to have veggies coming out of me ears this fall, LOL. Get ready Lisa :)
I am still waiting for confirmation on the date for rescheduling Danny's surgery. It is tentatively scheduled for July13th and we've decided to opt for the VEPTR 2. In talking with other physicians and parents that have kiddos with the VEPTR I think it is going to be the best option for Danny right now. We are still waiting (1 week) for the neurosurgeon to confirm that July 13th will work for him as Danny needs that ITB pump catheter repositioned and I want it done when the VEPTR is getting done, get r done all in one shot. It amazes me that it's been 1 week and the neurosurgeon's "people" still hasn't been able to get in contact with him to confirm.........not getting the warm fuzzy once again.
We are continuing to enjoy the summer season. Avrianna is now in drama, right the prefect thing for her. She is enjoying the doing what she does best.......DRAMA! The weather looks to be wonderful over Father's Day weekend :) Dan's dad and Claudia is coming over for the weekend and we are all siked! Good food, Good drinks, and great company!
We were suppose to have our family pictures retaken this morning but unfortunately something came up with the photographer so we've rescheduled it for next weekend. I'm excited that we are going to have another opportunity to retake them. Even though some of the ones I did get were nice they really weren't what I had hoped for....so we're going to have more pictures of us together taken. I would have been devastate if something would have happened with Danny during his first attempt at the back surgery because there is really on one nice picture of all of us together and I want to have a GREAT one. I know I'm crazy, but I just want to have the best memories possible. I can only hope the weather will be as nice as it was today so we get the opportunity to have outside pics of all of together. Here are the pictures that I liked from the first time she was out.










As you can see they are very nice :) But I can do head shots of the kids....I guess I was looking for more things that I can't do.
Thanks for stopping by and checking in on us!

Those pics are great.

I think it is so important for us, who have special needs children to have those memories.

I think of you daily and hope everything gets sorted out for Danny's op soon.
