Back to "normal".

Watching the horses at Wheeler Farm.
Victoria smiles at her brother.
Bertrand laughs at his sister.

This afternoon, Beli and I took the kids to Wheeler Farm. Both kids love animals - the louder, the smellier, the bigger, the better.  :)

Upon getting home, we got some good news about Bertrand's labs.  His CBC and CMP values have basically normalized.  His sodium is still a shade low at 133 but everything else looks great for Bertrand.  I am so relieved to see his ALT at 55 and AST at 56!  Heck, even his platelets high at 424.  This means his liver and bone marrow are functioning well.  

In other news, Bertrand's tonsillectomy evaluation was set for later this month, and I am working to get his liver biopsy sample to the folks at Sanford-Burnham. 

We go to the zoo tomorrow and titi Aury comes out this weekend!  The summer fun has begun.  :)

    Love seeing the photos of your two! Thanks so much! Nice application of that n-word. ;)

  2. That looks lovely -- did you go on the wagon ride? That was always a highlight whenever we were there.

    Good luck with the tonsillectomy evaluation -- Daniel had his out just over a year ago because he also had trouble with sleep apnea and it disappeared like magic. He was pretty miserable for a week or so afterwards (lots of popsicles were needed) but has slept much, much better since then.

  3. I love B's cool sunshade on his chair. I want one! :) Glad to see you having fun.

  4. These are some of the cutest pictures I've seen in a long time. It is always nice to see kids having fun. I've never been to a farm myself!
