Mike's birthday!! :) (And yes, there's more...)

Hi everyone!! :)

Well, here it is... Mike's 3rd birthday! I can't believe he is 3 already! I feel like it was just yesterday that I was being admitted to the hospital... and here he is, walking and talking and bossing us all around! He has been through so much in such a short time, and he has such a long road ahead of him. He is such an amazing little guy. I hope and pray for 100 more happy birthdays for him. I think if I go on anymore though I am going to cry and go on for days so I am going to leave it at that.

We had his family birthday party on Saturday. I was so thrilled he was feeling great that day! :) He had so much fun, he played and ran around and was just loving all of the attention! :) My sister E brough over Thomas the Train balloons and we had Thomas stuff all over the house! He even had on a Thomas shirt. :) And he LOVED all of the presents that he got... and I think he got enough presents to fill a Toys R Us stock room!! LOL I think everyone had a great time! It was so nice to have the whole family, both sides of mine and my in-laws here to celebrate Mike's birthday! I will post pictures at the end of the blog :)

Today, I brought Katie to the Dr. She has the start of pneumonia. She has had a cough since Friday and this morning she sounded horrible! So, off we went. He put her on meds and said that she can go to school tomorrow as long as she doesn't have a fever tonight.

Mike has an appt w/ a pediatric gastro dr tomorrow. He has to be there at 12:45 so I will update on that when we get home. Please wish us luck with that appt! I am hoping to find out that we can start to try him on lactose &/or soy even though he is on chemo!! It would be so great to be able to try to expand his diet... he needs to be eating more than he is!

Chemo day is back to Wed this week. My best friend J is coming with us this week. :) Please pray and cross your fingers that Mike's counts are up this week!!

Here are the pictures from Mike's birthday party this weekend :)We had ordered the cake from a bakery in Brooklyn but since they don't decorate the cakes my Mom made the train tracks for the cake topper set we got!! :) She did an amazing job! I had been able to find cake mix and icing that were soy and lactose free so I made Mike cupcakes that he could eat too!! :) There is also a picture of him playing with his new Thomas the Train table & train set! :)

With Love,

and let me just say that you are all very lucky to be reading this and NOT hearing me sing it... b/c i'm horrible at singing... can't carry a tune in a bucket!! lol

I'm glad that Mike was feeling good on his birthday party day! and that he had a blast and enjoyed the attention and all his gifts.

i love that he had all Thomas stuff. that table is really GREAT. if we hadn't already invested a lot of money on the GEO trax for Trevor I would really consider the Thomas stuff. :)

I hope that Mike keeps on feeling GREAT in spite of the chemo and I will be praying that his counts are UP... way UP!! :)
