Halloween 2013

by

As is typical this time of year, we’ve had a full schedule the past two weeks since we brought Rudy home from UCLA so I apologize for not updating on Rudy’s post op status.  He is healing nicely and seems to be adjusting well to the closure of his “extra airway”.  His new found ability to hold his breath and all the new sensations associated with the closure are curious to him, I think, be he hasn’t skipped a beat.  We have a post-op appt with his ENT at UCLA on Monday.  I’m preparing myself for the fact that it might be our last appt. with Dr. Shapiro for awhile…kinda strange!  🙂  Unfortunately, Rudy has struggled a bit this week with low O2 sats, fever and lethargy.  It has been concerning but I’m hoping it’s just a bug that will pass quickly.  Rudy hasn’t let it take away from today’s Halloween fun though!  Rolf and Olivia (and Max too) worked hard on Rudy’s TOTALLY AWESOME costume so you’ll need to scroll down to see their finished product!  🙂

The only disappointing thing about this year's annual visit to the Lane Farms Pumpkin Patch was that Maxo couldn't join us.
