Organ Donation Awareness Month

April is organ donation awareness month. So Eden is sporting her green organ donor awareness bows that one of the mommies from our favorite liver families forum made for her. If you aren't already a donor click on the link to the right to sign up and spread the word.

Frog Eyes

Seth and Ethan made these cute froggy hats at preschool last week. Ribbit!

Mom Your Hair Looks Funny!

So last Saturday I spent some time alone and got my hair cut. I like it, but all Ethan could say after looking at me strangely for a few minutes when I got home was, "Mom your hair looks funny." He didn't just say this once either. No he had to keep reminding me over and over again how funny my hair looked. Doug kept telling him,"no your supposed to tell Mommy she looks pretty", but he wouldn't budge.
(Notice the dark circles under my eyes. Yeah I could use some more sleep.)

Our snow family melted

Once there was a snowman,
snowman, snowman.
Once there was a snowman
tall, tall, tall.

In the sun he melted,
melted, melted.
In the sun he melted,
small, small, small.

Peri Influenza 3 Virus

That's right a cold virus is what is causing her fevers. Funny thing is that she doesn't have a runny nose or cough, but the few boogers they got out of her nose tested positive for it. Ugh! Darn fevers. I never know what to do about them with Eden. She is one complicated little girl. At least it wasn't anything more serious. So we should be able to go home today. Just waiting for the Dr's go ahead.

Four Months, Four Hospital Stays

So far this year Eden has been admitted to the hospital at least once a month. She broke her Thursday streak and was admitted yesterday, Easter Sunday, with fevers. We're still not sure what is causing them, but drs believe it may be a virus. Her liver numbers still look good so it is not likely that it is another case of colangitis. Phew. Her WBCs, neutrophils, and platlets are all low. Which indicate that it is likely a virus, but that leaves her with not much to fight off a bacterial infection if she were to get one. So she is on antibiotics as a precaution.

On a happy note we have a private room this time. Which means more rest for Eden and me. Plus as an added bonus we have one of the only rooms on the unit with a shower in the bathroom. That means I don't have to traipse through the halls in my pjs to take a shower like I'm living in the dorms again. :)Also, Eden's regular GI Dr is on call this week. So at least I don't have to re-count everything that has been going on lately.

I will have to get some Easter pics up here soon. Because although the day didn't end well it started out good. The boys had lots of fun looking for eggs and Papa had lots of fun teasing them with Easter Bunny "sightings." BTW according to the boys the Easter Bunny is brown. You learn something new every day.
