William is 2!

Well, our sweet little boy is 2 today! Time goes by so quickly. It seems this last year has been a whirlwind of doctors and surgeries and therapy, but he is doing so well. It's so exciting to see the changes in his behavior since the implant. My once passive, complacent child is now active and bubbly and happy. Now if there were only something we could do for his lungs. We made it through the winter season with no pneumonia, but spring hits and now we're having trouble. We went to the doctor yesterday because he's been having trouble breathing and his ear began draining blood early yesterday morning. He has some crackling in his lungs, hopefully we'll be able to head things off before they get too bad. At least he's finally able to rest.

(I don't know what the glare is on the picture - there's nothing sticking out of his head)
We are praying that the ears don't turn into another big dilemma like the mastoid cavity infection.
Anyway, we are waiting to celebrate his birthday until he's feeling better. We have several sick in our house. Most of us are getting better, however, Elly started throwing up this morning. What started with Michael last week has now run through everyone except Sarah and Sydnee. Thankfully it doesn't last long. However, with a family our size, it still takes awhile to get through everyone. Hopefully, we will be celebrating William's birthday in full health soon!
