Hello all,

It has been awhile. In my opinion, if there is no word then it must be good right?

Jaden is doing very well. We are working on potty training him. It is going pretty darn good. He has had a few days with only 1 accident and a few more with no accidents. He is 28.8-29 pounds. He varies day to day. So that means we have a pound left until his next surgery. Remember the goal is 30 pounds. We are doing everything we can to fatten him up but it has been a very very slow process. We will be meeting with his cardiologist the end of August. We were supposed to see him in July but he was full until the end of August. Good thing we did not have an emergency, we would have had to wait an extra month. We will decide when his surgery will be when we go in August. It was supposed to be September but now I am not sure since we don't have our appointment until the end of the month. I just don't want it to be too close to the holidays because that is so much harder.

We had to spend Thanksgiving 2 years ago in the hospital. My whole family came to the Ronald McDonald House for Thanksgiving Dinner. It was nice but not fun at all to be away from home.

Anyway, we will be going on our big vacation of the year in a few weeks. We are very excited and will be putting on a lot of miles. We are going to S. Dakota first with most of my family. We will then head on to Washington state. We will make lots of stops on the way there and back. It should be a lot of fun.

Take care all. Love, Steph
