Well the last time that we spoke was a few months back. I am just so busy with Ryan's schedule I don't know how we do it. Last time I was here we spoke about what has happened since February to April,so I guess I will start with May and June.

In May we celebrated April's First Holy Communion and her Birthday. The boys were good for that. It is hard for them to sit too long and be quiet,but I was proud of them. Nothing much really happened in May, it was one of our relaxing months.

Then comes June. Beginning of June was Ryan's last day of school. Then the 3rd week Ryan started summer school. He goes to school 3 days a week. He still has teacher Vicki(whom he loves) and the bus comes and picks him up and drops him off at home.

Ryan had his yearly Ct Scan and xray of his shunt. They checked to make sure that everything is working properly and that the shunt hasn't moved. Well that day we had good news to report. (I myself was a little scared because of all the puking he recently had). The doctor said that everything was looking good and that nothing had changed in the brain. he has enough shunt tubing in his belly still. Once he really grows up they will keep an eye on this cause he will need to get longer tubing. But he has a long ways to go for this. I was just glad to hear that he was good in that department. She noticed in his xray that he had fluid in his left ear and the chest looked a little congested. She told me to get him looked at. Well 2 days later we went to the walk in clinic and he had a small amount of pneumonia in his lungs. I hate hearing that. He was given a strong antibiotic to clear that up and get rid of the fluid in the ear.

Ryan then saw the physiatrist specialist. He gets to have botox injections on his left thumb,left forearm and left upper arm. His thumb still likes to stay tucked under and they say he needs to get this looking normal or we will have big problems down the road. Ryan wears a hard hand splint on his left hand when he goes to bed and he wears a soft one during the day.

We went to a St.Cloud Riverbats game this month also. I won 2 tickets from work and since the boys are 4 and under they were free. It was the first baseball game for the boys. They had a great time. Tyler was getting friendly with some people that were sitting up by us. The guy from the group has some pull with the team and he got both of the boys their very own baseball. That was very nice of the guy. We even got a picture of the boys with the teams mascot.

Now we entering into July and the summer is almost half over. We have 56 days til we leave for vacation at Rosenthals in Wisconsin. I can't wait cause I could really use a vacation and the boys will have fun as well.
