We made a visit to the ENT Dr and the GI Dr for Logan’s test results. The ENT found nothing wrong in his CT Scan so there’s no apparent reason for why they couldn’t get the NG tube down his nostrils for the earlier test. Just a bad day to put tubes down his nose but then what day would be a good day for that? The GI Dr said the MRI just showed a slight impression from his right aortic arch which is normal for kids with that abnormalty. The impression didn’t appear to be causing any function issues with the esophagus. So YEAH, everything turned out good. During this same week I had a follow-up colonoscopy. My last one was 2 1/2 yrs ago. I’ve been feeling great and my Dr and I had reduced my dosage of meds but he would go further till he looked to see what was going on inside. The results….I’m in remission. Other than the prep day for my colonoscopy, this week was looking great. THEN….to top it all off, we started seeing the results of the government COBRA help. We couldn’t have asked for a better week.

A month or so ago my mom mentioned that when her slow season came she’d be willing to watch Logan for a weekend so Bill and I could get away. We ended up planning a fishing get away to northern Georgia. I had never fly fished and had always wanted to learn. Bill was raised fly fishing in PA. We took our trip this past weekend and had a great time. It was a little bit of a long drive but we managed a couple days of rest. Bill and I both caught fish. We hired a guide to take us out Saturday morning and then did some fishing on our own Sunday. The cabin we rented was right on a stream. I caught a little sucker fish but that was about it. I ended up with the “one that got away” story although I have a witness. Bill did see it. I hooked a large trout, we’re guessing 20-24 in, but it broke the line.

As Logan’s first birthday rounds the corner we are puting thoughts together about a modest party. Bill’s parents and niece and nephew will be down. I can’t believe a year has almost passed. What a year it’s been.
