Quick Trip

We took a quick trip to Kansas to visit my dad and step-mom. It was a long drive but a great trip. I spent the entire time learning to quilt and made 2 quilt tops in 4 days. It rained a lot while we were there and the temperature was wonderful. That was a welcomed break from the heat of South Texas. My dad and hubby took the trio to Exploration Place one day and they had a great time. It was a wonderful visit and the trio were so good the entire time we were there. They were even really good on the trip up. The trip home was a different story. They weren't bad, per se. They were just wild and crazy and kind of annoying. You know? Being 6 year olds.

Markas is scheduled for another speech eval and also occupational therapy eval. We are still waiting on ENT.
Lucy and Josh had their monthly check-up and we got the results for their blood work. 6 months ago Lucy's triglycerides were at 287. This time we are at 83!!!! Huge!!! She is also no longer pre-diabetic(for now anyway). Her A1C was down to right around 5. Her weight was up again but the improvement in her blood work is huge!!!!
Josh's blood work also was much improved. His trigylcerides went from 190 something to 87. Both still have bad cholesterol and while his A1C was good, his fasting glucose was 105, so they are a bit concerned about that.

This has been one heck of a journey with a them. Hopefully things will continue to improve, but, usually we take 2 steps forward and one step back.
