Another one bites the dust!

*insert 80's music* Eli and Alex have been discharged from another specialist. Yeah, Baby! Today we saw the pulmolonologist and she indicated that we are on an "as needed" basis with her. She feels that they are doing wonderfully. I am very thrilled. This means that for specialists that we see regularly we are down to 1 and that is the neurosurgeon who will hopefully discharge us when Eli is 2. The pulmonologist did recommend daily breathing treatments to continue throughout the winter but other than that we are doing well. I added the pics below because I am STILL blown away by how well they are doing and how when they were in the NICU I could never have imagined this day.

On a much lighter note, we spent the ENTIRE morning at the hospital for this appointment. We left home at 9:30am and returned just before 2pm so I am hoping for an awesome nap from the boys. Other than that I am just sitting here blog reading and enjoying a warm cafe mocha. Ahhhh. I need it after a morning of fighting snowy downtown traffic and keeping twin toddlers busy in a doctor's office for hours on end. My head kind of feels as if it might explode.

In keeping with my resolutions, I am heading off to do some crunches and some other crazy exercises that make walking painful. :) I started an 8 wk session yesterday that involves exercising (exciting!!) and logging my food intake (not so "exciting"). A lady from church is an instructor and she does this absolutely free so I am thrilled to be a part of it and feel so blessed that my in-laws are willing to watch the boys so I can go there weekly. Although it is a blessing, as I was driving away from there yesterday I noticed that it hurt my legs to push the accelerator!! Did I mention that it is a blessing?? Yeah? O.K. Just checking.

Hi, Becky. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Boy, I know how you feel and that's such great news. My daughter Anna was born with hydrocephalus and she has never been shunted. We are so blessed that she is doing so well. We only see the neurologist every few months now!
