It's been a bit of time...

So, it's been a few days since I've updated. Our computer was having some issues as was I. But rest assured...everything is working much better now : )

On Thursday, Dylan's EI nurse came to our house for a visit. Not a whole lot was accomplished with Dylan aside from a few strengthening exercises, but she and I spent quite a bit of time talking about how everything is going. We discussed the option of me beginning to attend a couple of support groups - for both Down syndrome as well as parents of children with congenital heart defects. She also gave me the phone number of a woman who lives in our town who also has a young son with Down syndrome. Of course, these are all great's just a matter of whether I have the time, desire and/or energy to deal with them or not. She also mentioned that she senses some increasing anxiety from me about Dylan's upcoming surgery. Well...yeah, no duh. Every single day I find that I am falling more and more in love with my son. Therefore, every single day gets more and more difficult to accept the fact that he will be having open heart surgery. Ugh. It's a tough pill to swallow.

But...Dylan did have some great fun on Sunday and Monday! On Sunday, we all went to a local farm so that he and Cassidy could check out some animals. Of course...Dylan slept through the whole thing, but hey, I'm sure it was fun for him in his own little way : )

On Monday, Dylan's cousins as well as his aunts and uncles all came over for a computer repair/cook out party! Come to think of it, he slept through most of that as well. Ah, the life of a baby...lucky little man.

Check out some recent pictures of Dylan and me. Please tell me this - seriously, could he be any cuter? Nope. Didn't think so. : )

I think if you were NOT anxious about the surgery then I would worry.
