yeah, My boys are tough cookies!! The first set of pictures is of Joseph, my one year old! He's doing good now!! Trying to fight septacymia wasn't easy though! The only reason they cought his is because right after I brought him into the ER, a lady brought in her little girl (who looked to be dead to me) and the little girl died of septacymia! It was the only reason they even thought to check!! I got pretty worried for a little while with him. I took him in one day because he was not looking at you when you made noises like clapping, the Dr kicked over a metal garbage can, Joseph didn't blink an eye and he was admitted! He was in there for almost 3 weeks! I still feel bad for the lady who's 2 year old daughter died, especially since when I gave birth to Joseph, she was giving birth to her son, who got caught in the umbilical cord and died.... The poor lady has been through so much grief!!
Then the second set of pics is my 2 year old Jacob, who is also doing well now!! He wouldn't stop screaming when he was born, and I know what normal baby screaming sounds like, but since I had heard him do this since birth I didn't realize anything was wrong, I thought he was colicy! Then one day I went to change his diaper and a fleck of my nail polish was on his groin, which really called attention to the HUGE lump sticking out of it! I didn't know what to do, but I put my fingers on it and pushed it back in and he stopped screaming. I took him to the ER, he had 3 surgeries to repair his issues! (you would think the first one would have been bad enough!) My grandma had noticed that his cry was a pain cry earlier than I did, but he seriously cried like that since the day he was born!! So it wasn't as easy situation! Then right in between two of his surgeries I found out I was pregnant with Joseph! So things have been rocky!
But I wanted to show you my boys accomplishments. If you compare them now you would never know they were that sick!
