Update/Procrastination






I'm supposed to be working on homework right now, so I decided it would be a good time to update the blog since I haven't been on here in a while.

Rubin: We finally think we have figured everything out!! Long story short, some of his medications were his biggest problem, he isn't taking them anymore and he feels great. We finally went to the specialist today and he gave us great news. According to him (and he is one of the best Crohn's doctors in the country), Rubin's prognosis looks great. His prediction is that he shouldn't have any more issues for at least 10 years or so. He gave him 4 things to do: stop taking his medication b/c it's not doing anything for him right now since he is in remission, get some sun (which I interpret as going on vacation to a beach somewhere, but Rubin disagrees), take a vitamin, and make sure he chews his food completely. SO, hopefully we continue to get great news and our lives can be normal again.
Brayden: is awesome! He is getting so big and thinks he knows everything. He constantly cracks me up and is so much fun. Quick story: the other night he wanted me to drive but Rubin was. Rather than deal with answering "why?" over and over, we told him that I didn't have my driver's license with me so I couldn't drive or the cops would give me a ticket. Well then we talked about his day at school, and a policeman had come that day to talk to his class. He was wearing a badge sticker, so I asked him if he was a police officer. He told me no, that he couldn't be because he didn't have a driver's license so he couldn't drive a police car or a fireman might give him a ticket. Anyway, not that funny now that I just wrote it, but we thought it was hilarious at the time. He is just too smart.
Cameron: is almost 8 months old and is getting more and more fun by the day. He says dada all the time, and only says mama in the form of a scream, so I don't think it really counts. He is laughing and smiling and ADORES his big brother. I have honestly been trying not to teach him to crawl because I like being able to put him down and know that he will still be sitting there when I get back, but those days are now officially over. He's not crawling, but is rolling all over the place.
Me: same ol' same ol' - working, going to school and being a mom
Okay so this is much longer than I anticipated - sorry. Really don't want to do this homework. I'll try and get on more often and then they can be shorter :)
