Late January Update

It's been a busy couple of months. Isaac had his 7th birthday on Thursday January 14th. He was fortunate to get out of school early that day. He chose to celebrate his birthday with his Mom, & sisters Lauren & Brianna at Chuck E Cheese's pizza. He had lots of fun there and came home later to blow out the candles on his cake. Isaac's sister Brianna celebrated her birthday the following Friday, and he had fun with her and Lauren at the Discovery Gateway Children's museum. he also had fun for several weeks buying various toys with his birthday and Christmas money.
On the morning of January 27th, Isaac woke up with a bad case of croup. He was blessed most of the winter and didn't have to suffer with it as much as in previous winters. He stayed home from school for a few days and finally felt better by Friday. All through December & January, Isaac frequently had pain with his first loose tooth on the bottom. On the evening of January 31st, Isaac finally lost his first tooth. He was really quite surprised that it didn't even hurt when it came out. That night when he went to bed, he put his tooth under his pillow for the tooth fairy. He had bad insomnia during the night possibly due to the tooth fairy. I didn't think he would wake easily in the morning after a bad night of sleep, however, he woke up bright eyed and rich from the tooth fairy visit. The tooth Fairy left him an entire dollar and he was smiling from ear to ear. He was in the best mood that morning that he'd been in since Christmas.
Isaac is progressing well through life, although he still struggles with his ongoing heart issues. We still worry in the back of our minds about Isaac's future and what it will bring, however we have so much hope for a bright future. Isaac has been blessed with some great talents as well as caring family and friends. We look forward to see where his talents and abilities will lead him as well as his two older sisters.
