Headed to Salt Lake? Maybe not!

We spent 2 birthdays, our anniversary and a few holidays at Primary's. I'm so glad we got to be home for Christmas. But as of Friday, Brody seems to be coming down with something. He's been vomiting quite a bit. I thought for sure we would end up back at Primary's. We took him to the ER yesterday and they didn't seem too concerned. Just some meds to help with the nausea and hope it gets better soon. I hope so!...Kaybri has been a handful lately. Terrible Twos. They weren't kidding! She's into EVERYTHING! And if you try to discipline her, she laughs. Its sad when I can honestly say that Brody is my easy child. Other than that, things are going well.

Its Christmas Day and I have to say this has been the most amazing Christmas EVER! Not only has our family been fantastic, but the community as well. I am SO overwhelmed at everything that has been given to us this Season. It all started with the 12 days of Christmas. It was so much fun for both us and the kids. We never found out who it was, but we have a pretty good idea. We had two visits from Santa this weekend. The first night was Santa and his helpers on the fire trucks with the lights going and everything. The next day, Santa came by in his personal vehicle. Kaybri was just as excited about Santa's pick-up as she was about Santa's Fire Truck. :) We received so many amazing gifts from so many amazing people. I feel like we don't deserve it! But if any of these great people are reading this.... God Bless You! You've made our Christmas wonderful. The look in Brody and Kaybri's eyes today was more than I can describe. Thank you!!!

Great community, Awful Social Worker

Things have been going pretty well at home lately. Brody has been feeling really good. We all had a cold bug but it only lasted a few days and we're all doing better now. Brody was the least ill--thank heavens for those long-term antibiotics! Usually for Christmas money is tight and times are hard. This year is no different. But the outpouring of support from the community has made it special already. We are getting the 12 days of Christmas. The first night we got a tree with lights. We had Kaybri decorate it and Brody laid close by and watched. They were both loving it!!! It was great to see them happy! And the church called us to see if they could help out too. People are too good to us! ... On the not so fun side, we have been fighting with our Medicaid Social Worker like crazy. We usually deal with someone locally who is Fantastic but we had to work with Jeff through Primary's this time. I don't have one nice thing to say about the man. He tells us one thing and then does another. We got a call a couple weeks ago telling us our case was about to be closed for failure to provide info. I was never asked for info! We couldn't reach him so we went above his head and got things straightened out. The next day, Jeff calls to request info. Instead of the usual 10 days, he gives me 4. I rushed to get it all done in time but I did it! Then we got a letter yesterday stating that our case has officially been closed because the info was never received. This leaves us with about 400K. Needless to say, we are filing for an appeal hearing. I refuse to go down without a fight!

Busy busy but doing good

Joss took Brody to Gunnison today to have labs done. His white count looks really good so that means his infection is being controlled fairly well. We had been pretty worried after our check-up in the surgeons office at Primary's on Tuesday. As we peeled back his bandage, his back was still oozing. But I guess it must just be the surface since his labs look so good. Kaybri is doing good. She has been a little whiny today and is running a low grade fever. Hopefully its just a little cold and will pass quickly. Luckily, Brody is on antibiotics so that will help him not to get whatever bug she has. Tonight we are anticipating helping out with an EMT training meeting held at our house to help familiarize everyone with Brody. It will be a relief to have more people aware. The support of our family, friends and the community has been great!! Things have been going alright. And I hope to keep them that way :)
