Summer, the ER, and a Goodbye

I haven’t done much of an update lately – so I’ll give you a quick rundown of what’s been happening.

Well, now that summer has officially started, I am hitting up the pool nearly every day. I bought a summer pass for Cade and I to go to a local community pool, so we’ve been soaking up the sun and having fun chatting with my sisters, while Lil’ C plays with his cousins. I have no pictures to show, because a) I’m massively pregnant and don’t adore myself in a bathing suit, and b) our camera gave up the ghost. We definitely will have to buy a new one before Avery’s arrival, but in the meantime I have been trying to get away with making half-hearted attempts to snap some memories with my camera phone, which sadly isn’t super awesome. But hopefully soon (HINT HINT HUSBAND) we’ll get a camera, and I can start properly documenting stuff around here.

Cade and Cartoons in the ER
We took Cade to the emergency room at our local children’s hospital last week…it was horrendous. He woke up in the middle of the night with terrible abdominal pain; he was screaming and tensed up and shaking, and it looked bad enough that I was worried he had Appendicitis. So we rushed him to the hospital, only for them to take an x-ray and tell us that the kid is just massively full of poop – his intestines were full of it, which was causing him physical discomfort - enough to make him scream and cry. :( So he has been put on some laxative and stool softeners, and seems much happier. Poor kid.

And, sadly, I’d like to say goodbye to my Uncle Ron. Brandon’s uncle passed away earlier this week, and it was terribly unexpected and has been a real tragedy. My love goes out to his wife and his children. I hope that wherever he is, he is happy and out of pain and maybe sitting somewhere watching a Red Sox game with a can of Dr. Pepper, because I know he loved to do that more than anything. We have his funeral and viewing this weekend, and your support and prayers for his family would be much appreciated.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Take care everybody!

I'm sure you look adorable in your suit! You always look adorable:)
My son had exactly the same thing when he was a little guy. It is so scary, and then all it is luckily is poop. I'm sorry about your Uncle. It is so hard to lose family. By the way, how is your asthma?

Take care,
Angela
