Thursday - The no good, terrible, very bad day.

So Eden has now spent time in the hospital each month this year and each time she was admitted it was on a Thursday. Hence, the title of this post. But we are home now and Eden is resting and doing well. She had great big smiles when she saw her brothers this morning. She loves them just as much as they love her. :)

She has a pic line so we can finish up her IV antibiotics here at home. She should be done by next Monday when we go back up for a follow up visit with Dr. Book.

Hopefully this is the end of hospital visits and bad Thursdays for a while.

Here's the Latest

Sorry if some of this is a repeat. I didn't read through what Doug already posted. So Eden is being treated for a liver infection (colangitis). Her liver enzymes are quite high, but her bilirubin is staying in the normal range. Thank goodness for that. She is also growing gram positive bacteria in her blood and urine. So right now she is being treated with three different iv antibiotics. The plan is to put in a pic line on Monday (as long as her blood cultures come back negative) and finish up the antibiotic treatment at home. Hopefully all goes as planned and the fevers subside. She just started with another fever but went most of the day without one.
I will keep you posted on how things are going now that I have a computer.

Eden back at Primary Childrens

Eden had a high temperature all night Wednesday, got up between 102-103. Erica took her up to the hospital. She probably has Cholangitis (liver infection). Waiting for the blood result to come back. Started an IV antibiotic already. Hopefully it will just be a short stay not 12 like last time. If it is Cholangitis they will most likely put a PIC line in and send us home with antibiotics to finish at home.

So looks like she has Cholanitis and a bladder infection as well. Until those go away then cannot have a pic line put in or it will just infect it. She is on 3 different antibiotics so hopefully she will respond quickly.

But I want to keep her.

So as I was folding laundry I was watching one of those baby shows on discovery health and the following conversation ensued.
Seth: I want another baby.
Me: Maybe in a few years.
Ethan: But then it won't be Eden.
Me: Eden will be grown up so it will be a new baby.

The boys go to play outside for a while and then Ethan comes back in.

Ethan: But I want to keep her.
Me: Who?
Ethan: Eden
Me: She's not going anywhere.
Ethan: But she'll be all grown up and go.
Me: Don't worry she'll still be here just like you.

Glad to know he loves his little sister.

Here Snakey Snakey

FYI This picture was taken at my parents house in Payson where they currently have a snake infestation. So if you are reading this and live in our neighborhood no need to be alarmed. I will not be bringing these little guys home. Seth and Ethan wouldn't get to close to them either so I don't have to worry about them bringing them home either. Yet.

Clifford visited the school

We got to meet Clifford and eat doughnuts. Mmm sugar!

Ethan's Belly Art

Seth's Belly Art

Not too bad for doing it himself. I think it looks like Jack the pumpkinhead.

Draper Temple

Today we went with grandparents Johnson to the Draper Temple Open House. Erica had been coaching the boys yesterday about how we act and what we do there. We arrived a little earlier then our scheduled time, but it all worked out well. Lines were not long at all except the line for the green bus back to the parking lot.

Some old pics

It has been a while and finally things are a little calm, so some photos from the last month.

Why won't the boy's bathtub drain?

Thanks aunt Lesa & Yvonne!
