We love us some donuts and our Glennon family! Donuts for the Costas Center❤️🍩✔️
We all have mountains, but the most beautiful part is how we choose to climb them.
Family Day at Cardinal Glennon❤️ We were on our way at 6:15am and the littles didn't understand why we were leaving when it was still dark out.
There is never a dull moment when waiting for doctors... Madison can now verbally ask the questions the nurses do... "Medicine?" "Bhatla?" "You ick?"
The kids decided to have a "Care conference" and discuss Madison's health while eating suckers and drinking soda. Needless to say Dr.Bhatla would have preferred water and carrots.
Ryan and I will not be surprised if our children end up in the medical field.
We were all beyond hungry after we left the hospital so.... Family dinner date!
Mae provides entertainment for all! Between Mae living life and Harrison and Madison belly laughing we brought smiles to several faces today.
We left St.Louis with the sun setting and three exhausted children. 2016 has been filled with immense growth. So very thankful for our Glennon family! I hugged Dr. Bhatla on our way out this afternoon and my eyes still fill up with love and gratitude.
We are playing the waiting game on several different things- all blood work for genetics was drawn today. Why are we seeing genetics?? The list is long, but the main reason is we want to aid in research. There is so much not yet known about Monosomy 7 and this is one way we can help.
Madison has an overactive bladder, but adding a medicine to her regiment isn't ideal so we will wait and if she isn't potty trained by April we will revisit concern.
The kidney problems are at bay. Those that have or had kidney stones know it's usually a matter of time, but for Madison we pray that is all behind her.
Madison has been fighting upper respiratory infections, ear infections, etc. for the last three months, but thankfully she hasn't ran a fever (keeping her out of the hospital). As of now, we will continue to pray and practice superior hand washing. As long as we can keep Madison out of the hospital, Harrison and Mae can continue attending school.
Madison had an x-ray of her femur today (done to make sure healing is on track) we haven't heard anything yet, but no news is good news.
The best news is.... as long as Madison behaves (no other illnesses) we will not return to STL till January!! Please continue to pray for healing and no illness! Three weeks till our next visit seems surreal!
The upcoming two weeks, I will be visiting other hospitals. My mom has surgery next week and my grandpa will have knee replacement the following week. Please keep them in your prayers too.
Please continue to send me prayer request. My social media time is limited (by choice). The best way to reach me is by text 618-292-0984.
I'm praying for good health, time to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, and for God to use us to be his hands and feet this holiday season.
