It's Set ---- FINALLY!!!

Just got off the phone with Primary Children's same day surgery, Alex has been pre-registered for his Cath and Biopsy tomorrow. Talked to one of our wonderful Transplant Coordinators and she assured me we are set for tomorrow!! YAY!! We will check-in at 7:30 tomorrow morning. Please keep Alex and his Dr.'s in your prayers tonight that everything goes smoothly tomorrow and the results come back great with zero rejection.

Here are a couple of recent pictures I took of Alex that he didn't know I was watching him!!


He put his sister's vest on all by himself!


Too cute!!

I will try and post in the next couple of days with results!

Change Of Plans

Just got notice from the PCMC Cath Lab that they have had to push Alex's annual cath/biopsy back, an emergency has come up. More than anything I am frustrated, but there is nothing I can do. Thank you for all the prayers being said for Alex. I'm now crossing my fingers we don't have anything else happen between now and then, really how many times can this be rescheduled?

Here is a picture from this summer of Alex helping Dad water the flowers. Notice the mischievous grin on his face?

Third Times a Charm??

Or so I hope.

I know there is lots to update, but just a quick note for now. Please pray for Alex that he does not get sick from now to Oct. 6th. Oct. 6th will be the third time I have scheduled his annual biopsy cath lab appt. The two previous times he came down with the common cold and he was admitted to Primary's because of it. Please keep him in your prayers so we can make it to that date healthy.

I promise soon I will update with what's been going on and tons of pictures!!!!

Cardiology Clinic Visit Today

Alex went in for his clinic visit today and it was a GREAT visit. His weight was up (27 lbs 4 oz), all his vitals looked good, and his echo showed no problems with his wonderful heart. Alex and his sister were having so much fun that neither of them wanted to leave.

In the clinic room were some coloring pages. I don't think they left any for other kids. They were having a blast coloring. Alex was also playing with is new, compliments of the lab, Thomas the Tank coloring/activity book. This is the cutest little thing. It is 4 small coloring books, 3 little pages with stickers, and a little box with 4 crayons. He couldn't wait to get it open. He was putting the stickers everywhere. So cute!

Some other great news from today's visit, we get to come off of 2 meds and try once again to go to twice a day Prograf. Last time we tried to go to twice a day Prograf there was nothing but drama for three months with weekly blood draws.

Next visit will be for his 4 year post-transplant cath lab/biopsy. I can't believe it's almost been 4 years. How time flys!

Happy 3rd Birthday Alex

To my little guy, I can't believe it's been 3 years since we began our journey with you. In your 3 short years you have taught us numerous lessons, given us countless scares, and at least a million smiles. We love you so much and hope you have many more birthdays that we may celebrate with you. Mommy hopes you had a wonderful day! I can't wait for you to see your party!

Alex 2 Year Transplant Anniversary

Sunday was Alex's 2 Year Heart Transplant Anniversary. I can't believe it has been 2 years. Where has the time gone? Two years ago my sweet little boy receive his gift of life, and he has not wasted a minute of it. He may only be 2 years old but he lives it to the fullest. Alex is full of life and energy and is always laughing and smiling.

Alex -- Mommy loves you so much. You surprise me everyday with the new things you are learning and how much you enjoy life. We feel so blessed that you were given a new perfect heart that has allowed you to become the little man you have.

Along with celebrating Alex's Heart Anniversary, we also celebrated Alex's big brother Drew's Birthday. After we enjoyed Aunt Karen's wonderful, cute cakes (Thank you Aunt Karen -- they were yummy!) we headed outside to play and take turns swinging at the pinata. Below are a couple of pictures from Sunday night playing outside.

Alex up to bat! Daddy watching Alex go down the slide.
Alex is ready to play ball!
Alex goes in tomorrow morning for his 2 year post-transplant cath. Please pray with us that everything goes smoothly and his biopsy results come back with zero rejection.

What Has Alex Been Up To Since April?

It's a good thing I didn't make being better at blogging my official New Year's Resolution, because I would have failed miserably. We have been busy since the last post. Easter came and went. We went on a mini-vacation to St. George. And more recently we took a family vacation to Disneyland! Disneyland will be in a separate post ... so stay tuned for that.

EASTER April 3, 2010:
Alex's dad thought it would be super fun to have Easter Brunch at the Grand America Hotel. I don't think Alex knew what was going on, but he seemed to have tons of fun.

Alex's plate of food. Of course the only thing he really ate was the fruit. I'm glad he likes eating it, but it doesn't help him gain the weight.

Opening a present from Grandma!

When we got home it was time to find Easter eggs. Alex wanted nothing to do with it. This is him throwing a tantrum over me trying to get him to take his Easter basket. I couldn't resist taking the picture with the lip sticking out!

He finally decided to find a couple of eggs, but sister found most of his for him.

St. George April 11 - 15, 2010:
Alex's dad had a 10-day vacation in April, so we packed up the car and headed South hoping to enjoy some warm sunny weather. It was nice to get away and just play!

Alex and his sister found the pool noodles. They didn't need the pool to find fun things to do with them around the house. I think the thing they liked the most was finding them and getting them back out right after I had put them away.

Here is Alex's Birthday picture. My handsome little stud!!
