This is Saxon, our energetic little man who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was a week old. We gathered together many friends and family members and created Strides for Sax. Our mission is to raise money and create awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to find a cure for cf. This is all about Sax and our team's efforts for the cause. As of the creation of this blog, Saxon is 21 months old, has been hospitalized several times for pneumonia, and had undergone 3 surgeries since his first birthday.

Playing catchup!

I've gotten a few days behind again.  It feels like a Monday again. 

Friday, the 1st, was a good day and a bad day...  It was Daddy's birthday, so Mommy and Daddy had a date while Auntie Abbey babysat (and got to try her hand at nebbying and thumping the little man).  We went to a movie and out for adult beverages.

The kids were good for Auntie.... in spite of the bad day Saxon had been having...  When Mommy was in the bathroom he decided to ride his motorcycle down the back stairs.  It's only about 4 stairs, but he bit his lip pretty good.  I gave him a popsicle, which helped slow the bleeding.  Then another one... and then called the phone nurse.  After about 20 minutes it was still bleeding, which I thought was odd since with Raine's it was usually done bleeding within 5 minutes.  They told me to bring him in to check it out.... and ended up telling me just to give more popsicles.  That's about what I figured, but thought better safe then sorry.  He was on antibiotics for his ear infection, so they didn't think he'll need any for his lip.  It seems to be healing - just a little swollen still and has a funky white lip scabby on it.

Saxy's owie lip

I had to take Saxy in last Monday for a reweigh since his weight was down the week before when we were at the clinic... and drum roll please...datatatatatatata... He's up to his highest weight EVER~ 13.3 kg!!!! WOOHOOO way to go Saxy!!  Now just keeping going up up up!!

Me and Brooklyn
We got a new family member this week too... 10/10/10 my niece Brooklyn Kori was born.  Congrats to my baby sister Abbey!!  Saxy will have a cousin pretty close to his own age to play with!!
