Big Boy

I thought I would share a picture of Carver sitting in his chair like a big boy. It's a lot of work for Carver to sit without help in a chair. He's doing much better and able to sit for longer periods of time.

Kinnick on the other hand has no problem sitting - In fact, she can sit about anywhere...

Bells Bells Bells

We've been taking it easy this summer. Carver just got over a nasty cold and Kinnick is still going back-n-forth with her cold and crappy lungs. Off and on with the Oxygen. She's down for the count in minutes. One minute she's playing and having a great time, the next she is crashed on the sofa on 1 1/2 - 2 lt of oxygen barely maintaining 90% oxygen saturation.

Kinnick's eye pressure is up, so she has to get it checked frequently. We go in tomorrow to see where her pressure is at. Hopefully it's come down some, but I'm not counting on it. I know she's going to need another nasty glaucoma surgery.

Carver is still doing really good with his one ear. Here is a video of him enjoying his bells...

Kinnick says, "I love you!"

Kinnick is getting better and better with her words. She's still really raspy and still lacks the breath support to create a smooth sentence.

Below is a video of Hayden and Kinnick going back-n-forth saying, "I love you".

A funny story:

Today, the oxygen delivery guy came to drop off oxygen and supplies. He commented on how hot it was outside. He went outside to fill the liquid oxygen tank. While he was outside, Kinnick said, "Guy-Hot-Outside". She kept saying this off and on. Then, she got it mixed up and started saying, "Hot-Guy-Outside". My nurse got a pretty good laugh out of it.
