New haircut???

Today Greg and I decided that James needed a haircut-let me rephrase, a trim. So once we got done with MDA and ate lunch we went for a haircut. The lady did what we ask but the way she styled it made Greg and I laugh out loud when he got out of the chair. Greg wouldn't let him walk out looking that way so I recreated the hairstyle tonight after bath. Enjoy!

Can anyone say Lloyd from Dumb and Dumber?

Not much happening....

I almost don't want to say that because inevitably something will. James made it through steroids OK without any major problems. When we went to the clinic last Wednesday his counts looked OK but his white count was a little low. We are going back this next week for a count recheck to make sure everything is OK.

James has his program for school coming up on Thursday and I will be sure to post some pics. Thank you for continuing to check in on us even when nothing is going on!!!

Also if you are a member of facebook, a lady who has heard about James has started a cause page for him. She is also getting bracelets with James' name on them so you can remember to pray. If your interested, check out the link below

Tubes were a success

If he looks out of it, he is. They gave him some liquid Valium to calm him before the surgery. He was a champ, of course. When Dr Raney got in there to look he decided not to take out his adenoids. James had a little trouble coming out of anesthesia and he got sick several times. By lunchtime, he was eating and seemed to be feeling better. Please pray that the tubes stay clear and do what they are suppose to do. We head back to the clinic for our monthly visit on Wednesday and he starts steroids--yeah!!

James and Adrianne are getting excited because their Aunt Mary Beth and cousin Maddie are coming in for the 5K. Have a great weekend.
