Alas, Children updates

I know it's been awhile since I've update on the kiddos - so here it goes.

* Riley ~ Is loving kindergarten. She is ever so slowly coming back out of her shell. Riley had a really hard time after her chiari decompression surgery. She went in my out going loving child, and came home a very terrified, scared of her shadow little girl. I'd hate to say she was traumatised by the 2 surgeries, but I can't figure out what else could have caused it.
She had her year post op appointment with Frim in November. She had a MRI and a lumbar puncture and all went well. She's doing great. She is also involved with swimming lessons and loves it. It think the more active I can get her, the more the "old" Riley will come back - I hope.

* Keegan ~ is enjoying his new girlfriend. Yes, you read correctly! They send love notes back and forth, and "Mom, can you make her some barrettes....." Some days I swear it's the only reason he goes to school. He is also involved with Karate and is having a blast. Let me tell ya, he keeps me on my toes. Keegan is managing his chiari pretty well. He has the normal headaches and pains that go along with it, but for the most party he has been pretty strong.

*Cooper ~ OH COOPER. I swore to god when this child was born he was the answer to all of my prayers. He was quiet, calm, never cried, just the best baby anyone could ever have. It was the same when he was 1, and when he was 2....... AND THEN..... He turned THREE! OMG! He is the wild MAN! I love him to death but whom ever put the energizer bunny in him is going to pay!

* And then there is little Miss Carson ~ What can I say. I'm tired. This girl runs me down emotionally, physically, and psychologically. She has got her own plans, her own agenda and if you are not on board with her - WATCH OUT!
My mom always tells me that we woman come from a long line of strong women. Let me tell you.... Carson is a strong little woman, and she is only THREE!
Thursday Carson will have her 3 month post op check up with Dr. Jensen. My plan - to have good news. I am still waiting to hear from Frim. There are a few option that we are looking at for her. I will let you know more, when I am more certain about things.

So there you have it. A mini run down on the kiddos. As for Matt and I, well, we are hanging in there.

I am so excited to be a blog reader on here. Your family inspires me Carson's little smile is a glimmer of hope and my friends and I are excited to send her a package as soon as we can. Is there anything I can do for your other two children? Seems like it wouldn't be fair to send something to one and not the other three...
