Times, they are a changing!

Wow, have I been neglecting this blog or what? OMG. Well I think its time I got back into things. I've realized that Yale has been so stable lately that there isn't much to blog about, however there is lots in our family's lives to blog about, and instead of creating a new blog, I think I am going to change Yale's blog over to our family blog. Especially with a new arrival coming soon, and Yale's health changes, and everything else combined. There is lots to talk about, just its not always pertaining to the rock star!

Soooo here goes. Yale had a clinic visit last week where we learned about the results of his biopsy. As usual, no rejection, his blood work is all clear, they even checked his cholesterol which is fine. The only change is that his left lung now recieves no blood flow through the left pulmonary artery. It used to recieve about 2% where normal would be 50%. This can become an issue as Yale grows because all the blood going to one lung causes a strain on the right side of his heart because it has to work harder to pump the blood to only one lung. Soooo, when Yale goes for his next biopsy in November, they will be testing out new medications as a proactive measure to help relieve the pressure. That if of course only if his heart is appearing to be under strain. I am sure they will put him on something as a proactive measure though, because we know at some pint, it will start to wear on the heart. That is about the biggest news. Yale is still having very significant speech delays, but is starting a new group in a few weeks, and then some more intensive therapy afterwards.

Oh and lets not forget that Yale turned three at the beginning of the month! I cannot express how blessed and awed we are that we get each and every day with him. We are the lucky ones that get to witness a miracle every day....
Also, we're getting much closer to Kane's arrival. Yale's room has been changed so now he is ready to share it with his little brother. Crib is up, baby clothes are washed and ready, diaper bag is packed. We set the bassinette up in our room right next to my side on the bed :) and Yale although he can't say it, obviously shows that he knows his little brother is coming soon. He even says yes when asked if he is going to be a bif brother! Soooo sweet.  We took a few pictures the other day because I was feeling a little bit guilty about how many pictures of the Yale belly I had.... so here are a couple :)

Sooo things will be changing around here, I'm going to make a new layout that suits us more as a family, add more updates that have to do will all of us, and hopefully share more news with you all. Come around more often okay?
