Getting Ready

As I write this I shold be getting things ready to go to Cape Cod in a few days but I'm not. I have the big things packed but nothing that any other person would ever even need. I have sterile water, trach ties, HME's, saline ampules, an extra trach, suction catheters...  No clothes yet though, they will be packed this weekend right after I do laundry.

The boys are both doing great. Nathan is in his last week of summer program for preschool. His graduation in next week but we are going to miss it because of vacation. Trevor has started walking a little, he will take a couple steps and then fall down and crawl, crawling is faster for him right now so he likes it better.

Nothing has been going on so I haven't updated much. I have been working a lot to try to compensate for the week I'll be in Cape Cod and the month or so I will be in Boston. We leave for Cape Cod on Monday, Nathan's pretty excited to drive in Grame's car the whole way there. That will leave just Lisa and I in my car with Trevor. Hopefully he'll be good, I plan on bringing snacks to ensure his good behavior.

We've started talking to Nathan a little about his surgery. He knows that we're going to go see the doctor who is going to help him take a nap and while he's napping he is going to get his trach out. He doesn't know much more than that but he's 3 and doesn't need to know much more than that right now. As we get closer to surgery we'll talk with him more about what's going to happen but for right now he doesn't need to worry about it.

Here are a couple pictures of the boys from when we went to visit Matt's parents while they were camping. They both loved the camper and Nathan decided we're going camping next year with Grandma and Grandpa!
