While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about.

Kaleb saw his orthopedic doctor today to get another set of casts on. The only difference was, instead of getting two casts put on...he only got ONE put on. The one cast was put on his foot that is still dislocated. The cast will stay on for two weeks and then he will have his first surgery. His surgery is scheduled for May 24th. He will have casts put back on after the surgery and then on June 7th he will have his second foot surgery. Please let me explain to you in no uncertain terms...I am terrified. Don't get me wrong, our ortho doc is amazing and I definitely trust him but at the same time it's my baby. My not even 5 month old baby will be put under and cut open and have pins put in him. The during the second surgery he will have his achilles severed.  My poor poor baby. Although I'm sure he won't even notice what is going on, hopefully the operating room has a formula drip because this baby is all about food. I hope for the best and have a lot of hope that things will be just fine. I'm really hoping that all of these interventions will help and he will be able to walk normally when he gets older.

The one thing that I am sure about these days is that Kaleb is my hero. Seriously, most people haven't been through the things that he has been through and he does it with grace (as long as he has his formula every 3 hours). These babies are my life right now and carry me through so many things right now.

I'm trying my hardest to stay positive with everything that is going on these days. I really don't know what people do that don't have children to get them through the difficult days. What did I do? When Kaleb smiles at me and Nolan rushes to give me a hug and a kiss, everything melts away. Nothing else is as important as these two little people.
