It's been a while
I know it's been a while since I last updated the blog. Alot has been going on in our lives for the past month or two. We have moved to Minnesota and are pretty much settled into our new house which we LOVE!!!! We are enjoying the town and have found many really neat, close parks that the boys (well Noah) really likes. The boys and I are also enjoying the beautiful weather and go on walks daily, exploring the downtown and finding fun adventures to go on!
Noah is now 22 months and getting bigger and more talkative by the day. I cannot believe that my baby is going to be 2 in 2 short months. He says between 15-20 words which is considered "behind" from what i've read but we aren't too concerned as he definitely lets us know what he wants in one way or another.
Micah is also growing very quickly. He just turned 9 months and will be having his 9 month well baby appointment on Friday! These appointments are the ones I actually look forward to as they generally are easy and we hear about how well he is growing! Micah had his 3 month post surgery CT scan two weeks ago which came back GREAT...he also had his blood taken and a urine test done. The blood work came back great and the urine test was "so so". I'm not sure what it all means or stands for but what I do know is that one of the numbers on the urine test is supposed to be 35 or lower...before Micah had surgery to remove the tumor he was in the 20's which is great, but this last urine test came up at 41. What does this mean? Well it could mean nothing at all or it could mean that his body is hiding more neuroblastoma and we haven't found it. His new oncologist here in Minnesota isn't too worried about it but instead of going back in three months we will be going back monthly for urine test and follow up appointments to keep an eye on the levels and make sure they don't go up any higher. Please pray that the test was just extra sensitive and easily messed up and that his numbers are lower when he goes back in two weeks!
Otherwise Micah is busy busy busy. He's not crawling yet but getting very very close. He has his own personality for sure!
Thank you for all the prayers, please keep them coming!!!!
oh and Micah will see his new pulminologist in about a week and a half.
