Cara Update

They determined today that Cara's head pain is not caused by a clot, so that is good. The bad thing is that right now they still are not sure what it is. It could be a migraine, but they want to still keep her a little longer to monitor her more. She is still pretty weak. We went to Madison to see her and pick up Dick to bring back home. We are hoping she gets out of the hospital tomorrow, but most importantly, we are hoping that there is a diagnosis. Keep your fingers crossed! Where is Dr. House when you need him?

Cara and Christmas Picture

Cara is in the hospital. She woke this morning with extreme pain in her head. It was so bad she couldn't even open her eyes or talk. She was worried because it was very similar to the pain she had when she was still in college that ended up being a blood clot in her brain. Jordon got her to the hospital, but made sure to call Pam and Dick first. They are in Madison right now. As of now there is no definite diagnosis. They did an MRI, and two spots did show up. They aren't sure though if those are new or are from the clots before. She is in as of now until Monday. Ryan, Caden, and I will be driving to Madison tomorrow to visit and bring Dick back home with us. Please keep Cara in your thoughts and prayers. I will update when I get any new news.

On a good note, we FINALLY took our holiday photo tonight. Danny came over and took it for us. This is the one we ended up using. It is cropped for the card.


I think this one is hilarious. It looks like Ryan is laughing, Caden is terrified, Bentley is vicious, and I am just oblivious. I love it!


Have a good night!

A Recap in Photos

Caden is now so mobile it is unbelievable. He is able to successfully run now without falling...most of the time. Tonight Caden and I had dinner at Red Robin with Grandma. He did a pretty good job, but he got a little restless toward the end. Ryan was at a meeting in Appleton, so it was some Mommy and Caden time after we got home.

I know I have to do some recapping from the last couple of weeks. I will go back to Thanksgiving.

Here are some shots of the boys from Thanksgiving. It was a trick getting all of them on the couch.

Adin, Caden, and Drew



I also wanted a nice family shot.


After dinner we headed to Minnesota. On the 27th we went to Joel and Mindi's to visit with them for a little bit. Here is a shot of Caden with Olivia in costume. Our cute little aliens. We needed to get a pic of them together.


On the 28th we went to Maddie Aulizia's first birthday party. Caden had a pretty good time.




We got a new TV for the living room, which meant we had a large box. Grandpa decided that Caden needed a castle. Here he is playing in it. It is in his playroom. He loves it even more now that Daddy added another window on the side. He thinks it is pretty neat.



He is getting a little more hair. Here is a funny hair bath shot.


We went to get our Christmas tree on the 6th. Here is Caden helping to pick out a tree. He put a lot of thought into it, and we found a winner!



Caden decided the best gift we could give anyone is...him! He tried to pack himself up in a box to send out.

The next shots are from our Snow Day on the 9th. Needless to say, Caden was NOT a fan. I love these pictures. I have to include them all!






Have a good week!
