I just wanted to send out a big thanks to those of you who have helped me with my kids this week and since Ben has been gone. It was such a huge relief not to have to worry about Ellie (surgery went great) and the boys. Ellie to seems to be recovering well and only wakes up a couple of times throughout the night saying that her mouth hurts. Grandma has been great to help with her since all Ellie wants now is to go with grandma. I really appreciate you mom. Thanks for your help this week with the house work and everything else.

Lisa, Darcee(C.J. actually) I want to thank you for taking the boys the weekend before all of this. They both had so much fun and it was good to have a girls weekend. Also thanks McKayle and Mitch for driving Kyler to Lisa's house and back home.

Finally Matt and Malea you two are awesome. I am really greatful that you guys live so close and are so willing to drag my kids along with you. I don't know how you do it, but I am glad that you do.

Sorry still no cords for the camera but let me tell you I have some adorable pictures of Ellie right before she went into surgery, hopefully I can post them soon.

Surgery Update

Sorry guys. I didn't even think to put what Ellie was having surgery for. Since she was 2 months old she has been getting high fevers of 102-104 degrees. It lasts only for a day or two but tylenol and motrin don't seem to touch it. So we have been in and out of the doctors office,hospitalized 2 times, sent up north to a "fever clinic", in and out of instacare and the ER several times. No one seems to know what is wrong. She also gets a really red throat and blisters in her mouth when she gets her fevers. Our last time at the doctors he suggested that we go see a ear nose and throat doctor to see if the fevers could be associated with her tonsils and adnoids. When we went to the doctor the first thing he said was that he had read her history that was faxed over by her primary care dr. and he thought we should go ahead with taking her tonsils out. There is some medical term that he kept saying the name of but I didn't quite catch it, but there was an article in the newspaper that talked about this same thing that happened to a dr.'s little girl and taking out her tonsils helped. It is only a 50/50 chance that it will help Ellie, but well worth the risk if you ask me. What will we be out? Just tonsils and adnoids right?

So long story short (kind of) Ellie is getting her tonsils out in hopes that it gets rid of the fevers. So if any of you would like to fast on Monday for her I would really appreciate it.

Single Mom

O.K. sorry it's been so long(Lisa). I know everyone is dying to know what's going on in the life of the Scott Family. Here we go. Ben has left us. I am now officially a single mom. HA HA gotcha didn't I? Ben actually is gone for a month straight and we miss him very much. It is really hard trying to be mom and dad. Sometimes the house work doesn't get done but the kids are taken care of, that's what really matters right? I took Ellie to the doctors today and we are set for sugery next week! Wow huh, that was quick. The doctor was very nice and said if Ellie was his daughter he would do the same thing, so next week on top of being single I have a child to care for after surgery, good thing so much family is around. I am sure it will be nice with the extra hands.

Sorry there are no pictures but my husband left and I can't find the camera cords to attach any pictures so for now you have to put up with me rambling on and on with no pictures to make it a little more pleasant to visit my blog.

Kason and Kyler are both doing really well with this new year of school and Ellie and I are adjusting to the whole day by ourselves. So basically thats whats been going on. Hopefully next time there can be pictures.
