What a busy weekend!! Friday morning came and Zac and I took Jack down to PCH to see Dr Eshun. It is RSV season so while you are in clinic, we all have to wear masks so we put them on and in we went. Dr Eshun came in the room as friendly as ever saying how great Jack looks and how he can’t get over how much hair he has. We found out that one of his blood samples wasn’t done right so Jack had to get an unexpected blood draw at the clinic for his thyroid test. We were really looking forward to hearing what the results were of that, but we will have to wait until tomorrow or Wednesday to find out. Everything else looked great and his Vitamin D is totally normal so he gets to go off of that extra supplement that he was taking. We go back to the hospital in 3 months for more scans and that will be 1 year post treatment! After that we go to every 6 months but we will do random urine tests during that 6 months just for our own sanity rather than something we have to do.
While we were at clinic we got to see Jack’s nurse, Sharon, who we totally adore. It is always comforting to see her because she is so honest and such a straight shooter. We miss seeing Sharon and all the people that were such a big part of Jack’s treatment, but it was nice being there after a whole 3 months of being away!
My mom came in town Friday night and so did Shawn so Saturday afternoon we all headed out to lunch to celebrate Braden’s birthday as well as our 5 year anniversary! My mom basically told Zac and I that we didn’t have a choice and we needed to take advantage of them being here with the boys and take a night out by ourselves. So we did! We had a nice time out together especially since we don’t get that many of them being parents of 2 and with him being gone for work a lot of the time.
Sunday rolled around too soon and my parents left to go back to CA but they will be back in a few weeks for the comedy event! Zac still has some time off work so he is here today and we get to spend the day together as a family and that couldn’t be more special to me. Thank you everyone for all of your prayers during the past week. Scan week is stressful and the “what if’s” really play with your mind so when all is over with, we are all exhausted but now we have clear heads and get to breath for a bit so that’s a great feeling!!
