Today was long. We had a late night last night with Aunt Liz’s senior art show opening – it was fantastic!
The boys’ had their Riley appointments at the adoption clinic today. Exams, tb tests, 8 or so vials of blood each, and an x-ray later, we came home. Unfortunately, the appointments were right at nap time so we missed those. They both did pretty well except for the tb and blood – they cried so hard. Mommy and Daddy almost cried too – we felt so bad and wished that we could take away the pain. The whole thing took about 3 hours which was about an hour longer than we thought it would.
The long and short of it is…we don’t know much yet. :) The Dr. was really great and said both boys are doing well. There are some possible health concerns with Calvin so we will wait to hear…we are not surprised. Calvin weighed in over 20 pounds today and Patrick was 25 pounds so they continue to gain weight rapidly!
We are so blessed with Calvin and Patrick! No matter what health concerns may arise, we wouldn’t trade them for the world. They are our children and we love them unconditionally. The picture is not related to the post but we thought this was so cute!
