Project Life Tuesday - July Week One

Hello and welcome to Project Life Tuesday! I am taking a photo every day in 2011 and putting them together in an album to create a unique keepsake of this year for our family.  Be sure to check in on what others are doing with their projects over at The Mom Creative!

Sunday, July 3rd - Our day started off early when Micah spiked a 102.6 fever at 2:00 am.  I took him to the emergency room and they treated him for his fever and for what they suspected to be a staph infection.  We got home around 5:30 am, just enough time for me to sleep for about 30 minutes before I had to get up for work!  After work, I took Isaiah back to our hometown for our family's 4th of July festivities.  He had a blast, but missed his brother.  Oh, and it was also our 7th wedding anniversary!  Quite a day....

Monday, July 4th - Isaiah's grandparents set up this crazy pool in their backyard and Isaiah was in it practically all day long!  It's looking like Grandma enjoyed it too.

Tuesday, July 5th - It's official!  They put the sign in our yard today, so our house is really up for sale now.  Now we just hope and pray someone actually buys it!

Wednesday, July 6th - The antibiotics are starting to help Micah's owies heal, but his leg is still looking nasty.  We're keeping an eye on it to see if he might need to go back in to see a doctor again.  Poor baby is really sick of being sick!

Thursday, July 7th - Micah and his brother plowed through a pint and a half of blueberries before supper.  Looks like there will be some fun diapers in our future!

Friday, July 8th - I brought Micah in to the clinic at 3:00 to get his leg looked at because it was still so red, swollen, tender, and actually hard to the touch.  Micah was clearly still in pain despite the fact that most of his owies from the staph infection had all but cleared up.  It didn't take the doctor long to look at his leg and tell us a surgeon would need to see it.  Next thing we know, a surgeon is telling me he needs to cut my baby's leg open to drain out the pus and other infection byproducts that had built up inside his leg.  When?  NOW.  So, I had to call in to work to tell them I'd get there when I could because Micah was having some unexpected minor surgery!  He was scared and cried quite a bit until he got to watch some cartoons in his little surgery cubicle.  They gave him some anesthesia and made a small incision to drain out a lot of gunk from his poor leg.  Watching him go through it was tough, but we're hoping this will be the final thing that helps him get truly better for a while!

Saturday, July 9th - I snapped photos like crazy while the boys were coloring and these two were a couple of my favorites of my goofy guys.
