The Neglected

I feel like my blog is being neglected lately. Between doctors appointments and just our every day life it has been hectic. We are all doing well. Calleigh is just about 10 pounds! (Finally) We visited the craniofacial team this week and we were told we don't need to return for a year. THis is great because it means she doesn't have any other issues resulting from her incomplete lip! YIPPEE!!! She was hopefully have the lip repair done in the near future. (he's the only dr we have to see, the plastic surgeon). ANother issue has come up with Calleigh but hopefully, it's nothing. She might have some Kidney reflux. We have to have a test done. If she does it's something most kids grow out of in a year. I just feel horrible because she has endured alot in her short three months. I just want her to be done with the doctors for a while. Once we hit 15 pounds we can have her colostomy reversed and then her lip. Two more surgeries. Two more agonizing days to look forward to :(

We are so lucky her health problems are all fixable. It could be much worse but sometimes it's just hard. But she is a happy little girl. All smiles lately. She lights up when she sees her brothers. She already knows their voices and faces. They adore her. She is a crazy eater lately. Never know when she will eat or how much but she eats alot.

The boys start St Catherine's on Tuesday. They are sooooo looking forward to it. We head into NYC to film Rachel Ray on Tuesday as well. It's also my birthday. We are for sure having a packed day. Luckily, Frank is off for the day to enjoy the first day of school and Rachel Ray.

I'll be posting lots of pics of the first day and from the Rachel Ray Show next week. We don't know the air date yet but I'll be sure to post it so you all can set your DVR's!!

I can't wait to see you on Rachel Ray!

You have such a positive outlook about Calleigh. I know it's not easy. It's never easy when it comes to health complications with your baby. I'm sure it felt the same way with Cormac too. Thinking about you...

Once again you are inspiring. I am so happy that your little one is doing well. My sister had kidney reflux as an infant 20 years ago - it was taken care of with a minor proceedure. I can't imagine what it is like now. Cross that bridge when you get to it!!

Looking forward to seeing you and your family on Rachel Ray. :)

can't wait to get the air date! My son (8) caught me reading your blog. In response to me telling him all three boys were born at the same time he says "Gosh, that must be hard having to buy three times as many toys!" lol,
