So I haven't really had a ton of time to update this blog, things have been super busy around here, Zoie turned 5 on Oct 9 and we have had to take Xander back and forth to Primary over the past few weeks because he has been having problems breathing, they did another chest x-ray on the 12th of Oct and didn't see any fluid build up in his chest so they had us come back on the 16th for a sedated echocardiogram and they didn't see anything on there either, we go back to the cardiologist on the 3rd of Nov and we will talk about doing a heart cath, they think that maybe his pulmonory arteries are growing veigns that are bi-passing his lungs sending out blue blood to his body, if that is the case, and they will be able to tell with the cath, they will have to do another small surgery to close them off so they can wait longer to do the next open heart surgery, they want to do the fontan but they don't know if it will even be possible to do it, I guess we just have to wait and see, I wonder what the next step is if they can't do the fontan, maybe a heart transplant? I wonder if we should get on the list soon? I will talk to the cardiologist at our next visit in Nov.

So much to worry about! But in the midst of all this crazieness Zoie is doing well in school, Magi is growing up to be so beautiful, Xander is learning more words, mostly signs, and Zailee is 5 months old now and growing so well, she is my chunky monkey!

I guess that's all for now, I will update more when I can, when I get the time, taking care of 4 small children can get pretty crazy sometimes, but Justin said we may have one more, but I would like to wait for a few years before that happens lol.
