Quick Update on Asher

Well, the adjustment to four kiddos has been a "wee" bit difficult. I feel like I am constantly changing diapers, cleaning up spills, and feeding kids. My sister-in-law, very much a super mom who seems able to do it all, watched the 3 boys the other day while Adam and I went out to lunch. When we went to pick them up, the first thing she said was "How do you get ANYTHING done?". Which is pretty much how I feel every day. I can barely keep dishes done and laundry clean- forget about updating my blog!

Nonetheless, I have felt very guilty about my poor, neglected blog. I'm working on a few posts about our summer, but felt like I should update quickly about the latest with Asher. Remember, a little over amonth ago, how he bit his finger and had stitches? And then it got infected? Well, we've been following up with a hand specialist weekly. And last week, we found out that his finger isn't healing properly. The skin has contracted, causing the tip of his finger to bend at what appears to be almost a 90 degree angle. Poor guy, it has to be painful. So, now Asher needs to have skin graft surgery to repair it, so that his finger can straighten back out. Uugh. No date yet for that, we are waiting for a minor infection in the finger to clear first.

In other news, we have an appointment to see Asher's cardiologist on Monday. We were scheduled to see him October 13th, but needed to bump it up. We have noticed for a while that Asher has been sleeping A LOT. About 16 hours a day, minimum. And he has been sweating A LOT, especially from his head, and when he is eating/sleeping/playing. And for the past few weeks, he has been a grumpy boy. We still see happy Asher, but grumpy Ash is replacing him more and more. So, I broke down and called cardiology this week, and his doctor wants to see him at his soonest available appointment. So, Monday we should have some answers about what is going on, and I will update as soon as I can. That's all for now! Baby calls.
