Schrock family update

enjoying our cool weather with the windows open. Jackson loves to greet the neighborhood as they walk by. didn't know if anyone ever heard him, until adrian came home from a walk with the kids to inform me that a lady stopped to say hi. She new jackson as the kid from the window. haha!!

we got our SMO's yesterday and we are getting use to them. he is not used to wearing sox and shoes all the time. it definitely increases his temperature. he screams as we put them on..but he doesn't seem to mind them once they are on and man do they make a difference. he balances so much better and his feet point straight ahead. i never realized how little his feet were until they brought out these tiny braces. too cute.
we were happy when the shoes we had for him already fit too. and will for a while. he is letting go of things still, but it is very different to have to pick your feet up with shoes on. So he is not taking a whole lot of steps away from anything. right now he is walking with his back against his table not hanging on. he is quite the ham.

On friday we went to the doctor for our two year check up...everything went well. he weighed in at 24 lbs 5 ounces, which is down a little depending on who's scale you believe. and he was up to 30 inches tall. which was an inch and a half growth since they last saw him. good news.
we discussed his kidney transplant and what kind of protection he could get while we enter flu season to keep him healthy. HE suggested the flu shot and the new swine flu shot that will be out later. we will all depends on surgery date. which we have good news about too. Adrian passed round two of his testing. so he has appointments next wednesday to meet with the doctor, have his psych exam (please pray for him lol), and he will need a ct scan of his kidneys. Once he has these tests read, and he passes. we will be able to schedule a date. Exciting!!

Avenlea is doing well. She was quite fussy for a while, but we figured out she was not getting enough to eat. So we have fed her more frequently and started supplementing..which has helped alot. she is sleeping better and her awake time is content. Thank you Lord.. She has started to smile, which is so sweet.

that is an update on the happenings in our house. Have a great labor day weekend.
