It's been a rough couple of weeks...

Nico Broke his elbow. As if he's not in the hospital often enough!   Thankfully it's healing well and he will not need any pins or surgery.  6 weeks of a cast... and he is SUCH a trooper... he tried very hard not to cry and he Never complains about it.  LOVE YOU...
The Day before Easter Nico, like many other kids, thought it would be a good idea to spin in circles until he got dizzy. Unlike most other kids, he stopped spinning and started to run, right into the edge of a door jam!  Wow his head swelled fast!  It has since turned every color of the rainbow.   But once again, he's a trooper, he went right on playing (after the ice pack) and was well enough to go Easter Egg hunting and to get hurt again the next day. 

His 6 year old cousin Riley has a great arm... Unfortunately Nico's is in a cast... he was unable to catch the baseball, but his nose was able to stop it.  Bled like a sieve.  He is a magnet for injury.  I love you Nico... just duck next time, o.k.?

****  On a final note, I have witnesses for all of these events..

My son is turning into a Robot!

Nico has epilepsy. And sometimes that means he needs wires attached to his head to make sure he's not turning into a Robot... well, that's what I tell him anyway.

In all actuality we wanted to make sure that Nico wasn't having seizures while he slept... good news, we don't think he is... at least not that night.  I stayed over with him, but Ryan and I spent the days with him playing the WII and watching movies and being annoyed with nurses making him drink 20 gallons and liquid a day.... HE'S NOT THIRSTY!

He loved moving his face and blinking his
eyes vigorously to change the
squiggly lines on the EEG reading :-)
funny little boy. 

How he does it all with out freaking out it beyond me... Brave boy.  Although I think that the technicians that attach his wires are a little bit immune to kid's feelings.  They have a time schedule and don't want to be slow for a worried little boy.  They could have been more gentle, but I'm his mother, and I'm supposed to say that!  Be Nice, he's my perfect little boy and you are not allowed to break him!!!!!!!
