We're still here!

Yes - we are still here! Many of you have emailed wondering where in the world I am. I'm so sorry I haven't posted in such a long time. I was so busy with Trista's birthday party and then someone in our family has been sick literally every week since then. I had Strep again the week following Trista's party and then this weekend had a horrible stomach bug. Yesterday, Talan and Trista started running VERY high temperatures and today it has moved on to me. UGH! I am so ready to feel healthy again! Talan & Trista are still sick too - hopefully we will all be on the mend tomorrow. We'll see...

I will do a whole post to re-cap Trista's big party, but I simply do not have the energy to do it tonight. I can feel the Tylenol wearing off and my fever coming back, so I'm going to hit the couch and rest a little while I can since Trista is napping.

A couple small updates in the meantime. We did get the results back from the Genetics Docs and it looks like Trista does not have Noonan Syndrome. So, the next step is to go back in 4 months for them to re-evaluate her and see if any of her symptoms have changed.

We also got the results of her CT scan that they did a couple weeks ago to determine whether or not her hearing loss was a result of a bone deformity in the inner ear. Those results came back as normal, meaning Trista does not have anything structurally wrong with her ear. That's good news to hear, but it also means that there is no surgical procedure that can help correct her hearing loss.

She also has a new tooth (so 3 total) and 2 more are trying to pop through! She is also starting to crawl...well..mostly scoot, but we'll take it! Hey - she's moving around! She's also up to 15.4 pounds! YEAH!!!

Gotta go. Here's a small glimpse of how much fun Trista had at her party. Such an angel!


  1. Hope all of you get to feeling 100% again very soon!

    I am glad you got some good news on Trista's tests. Too bad there isn't any surgical option for her hearing though.
