Saline, anyone?

Ready to suction!!

Ready to suction!!

     Ah-Ha!  EUREKA!!  After a search for sterile saline that lasted a few weeks and led, ultimately, to the discovery that it could only be acquired via a prescription and cost $47.00 a liter, our case of saline arrived today via UPS!!!  Twelve liters for the price of two…I LOVE the internet!!! 

     Rolf posted a very thorough update of our week earlier so I’ll keep my words at a minimum and share a few photos of our recent fun…

It was sad to say “goodbye” to Oma, Opa and Gpa this week but we have one more week of grandparent fun with Gma and then it will be “back to normal”.  We’re looking forward to another great week of progress for Rudy…and summer fun for the older kids.  Thanks for sharing in our joys as well as our sorrows.  ‘Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

    Wonderful pictures. I have been gone for a week and really out of touch with TV, computers, etc, so it is nice to know that y’all are still okay. I have had you in my prayers, though. I am thrilled with the progress!
