Nate and i finally got caught up on laundry folding this evening before the kids were put to bed...i hate folding laundry! LOL So now i can get caught up on my laundry, i haven't been doing as much cause both baskets were full and so i've only been doing a load a day so i only have to fold the load on the bed! LOL Washed some of the kids clothes from Christmas and the other load is in the dryer of the rest of their new Christmas clothes! Both kids wore new jammies to bed and of course i got some pictures!!Which i wanted to upload but apparently my computer isn't gonna let me, my signal is poor! I will just download them to my fb tomorrow if i get a chance but they are totally cute pictures! So if your a friend of mine on Facebook you'll see them in the Tyler and Kelsee folders! Tyler is wearing very soft a warm jammies, that really aren't jammies its a one piece outfit but he doesn't wear those anymore and it was too cute to pass up. Its his second one piece outfit that i've bought that i use as jammies! LOL Then Kelsee has on ICarly Jammies that she got from her daddy, i'm not a fan of her watching Icarly but he has let her for so long its a lost cause. She was being a major ham for pictures tonight, so i got some really good ones of her. Then i got one of Tyler where he's saying cheese...its so cute. He's starting to pick up a word a week i swear, his vocabulary has skyrocketed in the last three weeks, he must say about 6 new words! Its awesome, cause we were starting to worry about his speech, he was only saying like 3. Alright well its getting late and i want to be in bed before midnight tonight! LOL Its 11:41pm....not much time! Have a good day tomorrow everyone!

I woke Kelsee up with singing the happy birthday song to her, and first thing she said when she was awake while standing on her bed, "Mommy now that i'm 5 years old i'm taller!" To which i told her no Kelsee you are not taller you are just older, she tried argueing her case but in the end dropped it. Then about an hour or so later we were getting our coats on and getting ready to leave for the library, i notice that she's having trouble with her coat, and she says "mommy now that i'm 5 can i say......" she left a blank. I figured she was meaning a cuss word like S H I T or somthing, so i said no just cause your older does not mean you can say bad words. Her reply was "but audri does"? Audri is her friend who is 22 days older then her, i'm guessing she does not say bad words but i just told Kelsee i don't care what Audri does she's not my child. Later that day she told me she wanted to say dangit...i don't know why she would ask if that was ok cause she says that all the time. LOL Going back to earlier that day at the library, she asks "mom now that i'm 5 do i have to wear my winter coat over my fleece?" Yes Kelsee you still have to stay warm even though you are older, doesn't mean things are going to change! LOL Anyone else have a 5 year old that asks silly questions like this? We took her to Chuckie Cheese in the evening just a small family get together for her birthday and she had a blast of course! I forgot my camera in my mom's van earlier that day, so all my pictures are on my phone and i haven't looked for the USB cord to transfer them! But she got tons of presents and still has 3 more to open from mommy and daddy that, Nate decided he didn't want to take to Chuckie Cheese. He didn't want people to think she was a spoiled brat....even though everyone knows how spoiled rotten she is! LOL Daddy's little princess!
I got Tylers results back from his poop test, everything was normal. Now i'm supposed to get some blood tests done, which if i can find the paper i'm thinking i might get them done Friday. I can't remember what they are for though at this moment! LOL He is still going to Indianapolis in january, except i need to call and reschedule an appoinment because i double booked today. I now have the Endocrinologist and genetics appt at 2pm! LOL ooops I'm hoping one of them has sa later appointment and we can keep all 3 appointments on January 14th, makes it much more simpler for our family and taking off work for my husband.
In the meantime, i'm trying to get different products that i'm fans of on Facebook to let me review their products and possibly do giveaways! So stay tuned for that, i'm sure you'd love to join in on the fun if i get to do a giveaway or two!

The other doctor he's going to see is in the metabolism department at Riley children's hospital but i'm waiting for them to call me, they like to talk to the patient to schedule the appointment not the nurse. Hopefully we can get that scheduled either the Thursday January 20th, or later in the day on the 21st. My husband isn't crazy about taking off a Friday as it is the biggest day for his pay during the week but, like i told him i could get someone else to go with me but i'd really prefer my husband be there.
Next week Tyler goes back to the gastrointologist doctor for another four week checkup, they have yet to call with the results of his poop testing. I've also made two phone calls this week to the hospital and a doctor's office and left messages for them to call me back....and haven't heard anything from them either. Ugh, very frustrating guess i have to call again if i want it done. I'm hoping the gastrointologist can maybe scratch off us going to the endocrinologist if Tyler is gaining weight better now that he's on the appetite enhancer medicine twice a day now. He seems to be eating a ton better and more often!
Today we woke up to snow...not my favorite but here is Tyler after we took sister to school, he loves his new hat! He used to pull them off as soon as i put them on his head, but he's doing so much better which is great cause i'm determined to have no ear infections this winter! The hat also came with gloves and a scarf, his sister stole the scarf and wore it to school! LOL
So i am kinda having an issue with Kelsee's coming home after school, maybe people who read this can give me input. I asked one of the mom's if she would mind bringing Kelsee home on the days she was able to which originally was Monday and Wednesday, and then her Teacher would bring her home on Thursdays. I have someone bring her home because she goes to preschool from 12:30-2:45, Tyler Naps from 1pm-anywhere from 3:30-4 pm usually. Even if i laid him down as soon as we got back he'd most likely still nap till 3:30pm, i really hate to have to cut his nap shorter cause it'd mess up his entire schedule. He'd probably be ready for bed earlier then 8pm, which means he'd only get to see his dad for an hour or so some afternoons, and he'd be up an hour or so earlier, which he's up at 7:30 or 8am as it is. I've been thinking of asking the teacher if i could maybe have another mom's phone number that picks their child up all the time, and is there more then not there. Cause the mom that brings Kelsee home now, if her son doesn't want to stay at school, they leave, or like today she didn't have room in her van i guess? I'm fine with her not wanting to bring her home, i'll find someone else but i did ask her originally and she said she didn't mind? UGH its frustrating. Today Nate was home before Kelsee which was a half hour after Kelsee was out of school, and i had gotten Tyler ready and was walking out the door cause i was freaking out that she wasn't home yet. Nate went and picked her up, and she was helping the teacher clean and decorate the room..which is fine cause Kelsee loves to do that stuff. But i wish she would have called or something to let me know, cause she's usually always home 10-15 minutes after school, and when that long had passed i was freaking out. She felt bad and apologized to Nate and he told her it was fine just sometimes i panic about certain things. Almost as if i shouldn't have panicked? But in this day and age its hard to say what could happen and the things that were going through my head weren't good. Another thing is, i'm thinking of doing in home daycare starting in January so then i'll need someone to pick Kelsee up for school and bring her home...i just don't know what to do. I wish there was someone close to me that could do it, so i didn't have to ask a stranger but there isn't anyone that would be able to. Ok enough ranting i better start getting Tyler ready for bed its 7:30pm, another night he probably wont see daddy before he goes to bed. :(

Black Friday shopping but on Thursday....boy oh boy did i not realize what i was getting into! LOL I've been black Friday shopping at Toys R Us 2 other times but this year would have to be the worst wait in line outside and inside EVER! Toys R Us opened last night at 10pm, i planned to go wait in line at 9:30pm but ended up not getting there till 10pm, the line was 500 people deep or more at that point. I took my 10 year old sister with me (she wanted to come but pretty sure she'll never make that mistake again), we waited outside for one 1/2 hours before we finally got in the store. Luckily i had made sure she dressed warm, so she really didn't complain a whole lot of being cold. Once in the store it took me about 20 minutes or so to get what i wanted and find the end of the treacherous line that was literally wrapped around the whole store. I heard one lady say at one point she heard a woman was misdirected and ended up going around the store twice while waiting in line to purchase her items. My dad called while we were outside still about 11pm or so, and again at 12:50am at which i told him we were in line to purchase our things but it would not be any time soon that we'd be doing so. My phone was dieing and so it didn't die all the way i shut it off. Finally around 2:30am we were checking out, and here is my dad coming behind me at the checkout lane? Apparently he had tried calling several times and since he hadn't heard from me in an hour and 1/2 he was worried sick... WOW! So i didn't get to purchase the one toy i had purposely gone to get, because i apparently didn't read and it was a 5am-1pm item....GRRRRR. But i did save $60 and got two big bags full of things, and ended up only spending 60 or so of our money because i had a $75 gift card that Tyler had won at a company picnic for Nate's work in August. I finally got back to my dads around 3am, and thought about waking back up at 5am to try and get the toy online...but quickly decided my worth was more important! LOL Tyler was awake at 6am, but i got him to go back to sleep upstairs in a playpen. My husband called me at 8am, and was being grouchy and i'm sure i was but i was seriously very tired. I got to sleep till almost 9:30am, it was very nice! My little sister was still sleeping at 11:30 when i left for my dentist appointment! LOL Yay, Kelsee says i must be in the no cavity club since i didn't have any! LOL I would have posted pictures of Kelsee in her cute new dress and fashion boots but i think i forgot my camera at my dads! Hope everyone has a great weekend and sorry no update on Tyler yet, except that his Echo came back normal! Still more doctors to see but until they are scheduled i'm not saying what they are because the one i can't remember! LMAO GOODNIGHT i'm thoroughly exhausted!

Yesterday i got a phone call from Tyler's pediatricians office at 4:50pm, it was one of the nurses and before she even told me why she was calling she sounded super nervous, which made me nervous. She said hi i'm calling from Dr. steigmeyer's office and um... long pause, i'm calling about Tyler Lutz...um...we got his halter monitor results back and um...another pause, the Cardiologist from Riley feels there is something to worry about. My heart felt like it fell out of my chest, of course i don't want to assume the worst but...that's my baby she's referring to. So she goes on to say that he needs to be seen by a Cardiologist, and she doesn't know the details any more then that. Luckily for us, there was a Riley Cardiologist going to be in the office today, so i made plans for Kelsee to get to school with my mom and made the appointment for 12:15pm. I was a wreck and totally crappy to my family the rest of the night, i felt bad for not being nice but i just got told something is possibly wrong with my babies heart. It wasn't really that i was mean, i was just snapping at everyone and had no patience what so ever. Today Tyler was up at 7am, i did some cleaning around the house and took Kelsee to my mom's around 10:45am. By the time I got in the area for the doctor's appointment i was a half hour early, didn't do it on purpose but Nate of course said at least your not late. (i have a habit of that :) LOL) We get there wait about 15 minutes or so and are finally called, the nurse checks him out, measures him and says he's 30inches i say out loud hmmm Tyler you shrunk a 1/4 of an inch. So she remeasured him and got the right measurement, then off to the scale he weighed 18lbs 1oz. Finally the Cardiologist comes in and looks him over, and then starts to tell us what they are worried about down at Riley. His heart rate is a lot slower for his age, then it should be. When he was sleeping his heart rate dropped all the way down to 40 and should be more like 75 and, the highest it was when he was awake was 115 and should be closer to 150-175. She proceeds to say that she'd like to get an ultrasound done on his heart and think about monitoring him for more then 24 hours, more like 2 weeks or so. She is waiting on the ultrasound to figure out how we would do the monitoring if needed because, the machine is pretty large and he wouldn't be able to carry it around with him, or play like normal. She then talks briefly about if they find nothing wrong with his heart and no reason to believe he's not gaining weight normal or that his heart rate would be so low, they might put a pacemaker on him. SAY WHAT? So now i'm stressing over this pacemaker idea, my little son is only almost 17 months old..... We've also been stressing about the G-tube that the gastrointoligist might possibly bring up again tomorrow at his appointment with Tyler. I really think if it comes down to it, i'll be getting a second opinion for both because, although i want the best for my son, those just sound really invasive for surgery and very scary with such a tiny little guy. After the appointment, the hospital which is around the corner was able to get us in for a heart ultrasound (echo), that wait took forever. We sat in a dark room, watching Dora while Tyler sat with me on a hospital bed munching on animal cookies, and then got a sucker which he didn't end up wanting. He did pretty good for staying still for the technician but i'd say the ultrasound took about half hour to forty five minutes. It was a rather long day, and i was so glad to leave the hospital and come home. Only to clean the house and cook dinner, but sure beats a hospital or doctor's office!
On a happier note, my house is spotless at the moment and i'm super excited to see it so clean at the same time, i'm thinking no one better mess it up in the few hours we'll be home tomorrow! LOL I'm having a few ladies over on Saturday, and hopefully taking my mind off things for a little while, while the kids go to grandpa's for the night. Sorry so long, thank you everyone that wanted to know before i posted for waiting patiently. Still trying to process everything, and i'd even thought about not writing this till tomorrow.

Here's a look at his spider man one before bed, he'd already torn the other one off. I tried to get a picture of the gunk on his arm that the tape left behind but it wouldn't come out good! Back to the appointment...Kelsee was next for a flu shot, and boy did she not want that shot. The whole time we were waiting for the doctor to come in, she kept saying and even cried at one time, i don't want a flu shot. But with her going to preschool i really think its safer for her to be protected. The nurse comes in the room, and Kelsee hides under the desk, i get her out and put her on the table and she's seen the shot. The nurse and i had to hold her down and take her pants down for her, so that she could get her shot on her thigh....wow what a nightmare that was. She almost kicked the nurse in the face and i'm sure the nurses ears were ringing when she got done with Kelsee's shot. Finally the day was coming to an end, and we were on our way home around 4:15pm. We came home got Nate and went to dinner with some family, dinner was oh so delicious and the kids behaved fairly decently! It was great to see family that we hadn't seen most of the year but by 8pm we were all ready to get out of there and head home. The kids were in bed almost as soon as we got home but before they went to bed Tyler played a little while Kelsee got ready!So glad the day finally ended, tomorrow i will hopefully find out the results of the Cystic Fibrosis test! Sorry this was so long, i hope i didn't bore everyone who read it!
