Happy 11 Months!

We’ve reached another milestone…Eleven Months!  Trish’s computer has been sidelined briefly with a virus, and with it some cool pictures that would make for a celebratory post, but we certainly didn’t want this day to pass without some acknowledgement.

Unfortunately, Rudy had to mark this day with an unscheduled visit to the pediatrician.  His lungs have been pretty congested for the last couple of days–or “junky” for those of you who deal better in medical lingo.  He’s been a bit uncomfortable, but I’m not sure if he’s worse off than his parents who’ve had to suction him about every 20 minutes around the clock.  On the immunologist’s recommendation last week, we did change up a few things with his breathing treatments, but perhaps this was too abrupt.  So, we’re going to do a bit more gradual transition introducing Singulair to abate secretions and more slowly wean the inhaler treatments.  Breath easier, Rudy, Mom and Dad would like more sleep.

Due to the equipment issues I don’t have any pictures of Rudy handy, but while we’re celebrating birthdays let’s welcome Alyssa Johanna Geyling, Rudy’s new cousin who was born yesterday.  In addition to her stellar good looks, she also demonstrates remarkably good taste in fashion accessories at a young age.

The first thing Cousin Alyssa put on was her Rudy bracelet!

So we don’t have any new pictures of Rudy ready to post right now (but we have a sure classic coming), but Wilson and Max thought it would be cool to post some skateboarding pictures from the last week of summer vacation on Rudy’s Beat.  What does this have to do with Rudy or HLHS?  Absolutely nothing.  But they are cool.

Wilson gets some air!

Max gets his grind on!  (Note the wrist bandage...Rudy isn't the only one with scars)

If skateboarding is cool, how much cooler is finding a taratula at the skatepark?

Hope all you want...that thing isn't coming home with us!

While we were in the neighborhood, I humored my wife’s recent obsession with Micheal Jackson coverage by making a swing by the Ranch.

Wilson thought we were going to the Jimi Hendrix Ranch.

Hard to believe school’s back in session.  We made the most of the summer.
