Update on O

Just left MUSC and Dr. Meyer said that his MRI was clear except for inflamation on his right side. There could be several reasons for the inflamation but nothing major, just something to watch. Thank you for all your prayers. I am so releived!
The speech therapist @ MUSC also evaluated him today and they said he is so far ahead with speech that they would not recommend it for him. Yay! Praise the Lord!

Let the Memories Begin!

To say our Disney Trip was fabulous is an understatement! It was definitely one of the best vacations I have ever been on. The boys had a wonderful time! (as did the adults!)

We went to all 4 parks and Sea World so it was a busy week. We all got lots of exercise, for sure!

I was amazed at Price riding everything. He wasn't scared a bit! He did Space Mountain first, then the t-rex ride, Expedition Everest......and every other one he could hit up. His favorite ride was the Buzz Lightyear ride @ Hollywood Studios. I must say, it was very impressive!

I think Owens favorite thing might have been the street party at the magic kingdom. He got to dance with Lucious and Mr. Incredible.

The boys LOVED meeting the characters, except the ones who looked like regular the princesses. I had to pull Owen away from most of them.

Owen refused to remove his superhero cape which actually turned out to be quite handy. The characters kept coming up to him during the parades to give him a high five and thumbs up and pointing to his cape.

Price ended up getting strep the end of the week but thank goodness it was at the end and not the beginning.

We started our trip by eating dinner at Chef Mickeys, which is the best way to get pictures and autographs, by far!
Then we went to Cinderellas Head Table for Breakfast with the Princesses! (Yes, I made the boys endure this, but it was very good!)

The only things that I really wanted to do that we didn't make it to was the Electric Parade and Fantasmic. We will have to catch those next time.

I can definitely say that Disney is the Most Magical Place on Earth!

And we stayed at the Jambo House Villas @ Animal Kingdom, which I highly recommend. It was beautiful and we had a Savannah view. The boys loved going on our balcony and watching the zebra, giraffes, wildebeest, gazelle and other animals that were roaming around.

This was a baby giraffe that watched

and this was the view from our room.

This place will be missed!
We would like to thank Gigi & Papaw for the best. vacation. EVER! What a great time!

Update on O

Josh and I took Owen to MUSC yesterday to meet with Dr. Meyer about Owen's ear. I am thankful that we were sent to Dr. Meyer because I definitely think he is the most knowledgeable, proactive doctor we have dealt with concerning Owen.
Apparently Owen's total hearing loss in his ear is very uncommon and he wants to do his best to find out what happened before deciding how to treat.
They will be doing a MRI on the 21st of Feb to rule out the chance that a tumor may be sitting on his nerve and causing it not to work.
Obviously this causes us great concern but we are trying hard not to worry until there is actually a reason to worry.
I do ask that you please remember Owen in your prayers and please, specifically, pray for a clear MRI.
We will go back for a follow up on the 28th but I am hoping they will notify me of results before then. I will keep everyone updated on the results.
We will be leaving for Disney World on Friday and look forward to spending an exciting week together with the boys and Gigi and Papaw! If I haven't already filled up your prayer list, then please add safe travels to it as well! :)
