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.

Starting out the new year!!!

So I know I've slacked a little bit, so we're going to play a little catch up....

Saxon finished his omniceph and hasn't been having as many tummy issues or poopy issues!! Yay!!!  We're happy to say he is starting to eat more again too!!!  Not as much as he had been eating before, but still doing pretty good.  It's not an every day thing that he DOES eat, but he does eat more often than not.

On New Year's Eve, Raine had a couple friends over to hang out and one to stay the night.  The girls had so much fun, and so did Sax.  It was so sweet that they included him in on their games!!  The girls stayed up until about 2 am, and Sax had crashed about 12:30.  That's still pretty late for all of them though!!

He was especially enthralled with the noise makers and all the balloons.  I figured to have a REAL party, ya gotta have balloons!!  We drew pictures on them.  Sax still has a few of them around the house more than 2 weeks later!!

Today Daddy, Raine, and Saxon went sledding.  It was Sax's first time really going down a hill.  We've had him out playing in the show, and Daddy has pulled him in his sled before, but this is the first time down the hill.  Mommy couldn't go cuz I was helping Grandma and Grammy with a few things (Grammy broke her shoulder before Christmas, but she's doing good!!)  Daddy said Sax did really good, even when he fell out of the sled.  He went down all by himself a couple times too!!!  Our little man is fearless!!

Earlier today, though, he had a little incident.  We were making lunch and the kids were playing upstairs.  We heard Sax start crying, so Daddy went to get him.  Apparently he hadn't been in Raine's room playing with her - he had been in OUR room playing...... and fell and cut his eyelid!  Daddy didn't see anything at first.  A little later when Mommy was snuggling with him, I noticed he had a little blood on his eyelid.  Unfortunately we have to be super careful putting anything on it cuz the antibiotic cream says to keep away from eyes....  I did a warm compress that did seem to help....

Hopefully the next few days will be uneventful... Our next Mayo appointment isn't until the end of February, hopefully we won't have any more doctor appointments for him before then!!
