Hello Everyone!!

Well, the day has finally come. Kelsey and I are scheduled to go to UW tomorrow (Monday, 6/16) for induction. It is truly a blessing that Mason made it this far into the pregnancy. His lungs and other organs should be well developed and ready to tackle anything that comes his way.

We do not know when exactly we'll be going into the hospital, but we should be getting a call in the morning. I know it has been awhile since this website has been updated, but like the old saying news is good news. Since our "Big Scare" last month things have been smooth sailing. They put Kelsey on bed rest (if you want to call it that) and it drastically improved her health. The doctors at Children's (Dr. Holmgeren inparticular) have been so wonderful to deal with. They have really helped ease the ups and downs we have gone through over the past several months.

The updates to this blog will be more frequent now that changes will be more frequent. Please check often for news on Mason's health, Kelsey and I believe this blog will be filled with positive reports.

And last but not least we just want to thank you all again for your support and prayers. Kelsey and I reflect often on how hard it would be to go through this without the support of family and friends like you all. And we definitely could not imagine not having God's shoulder to lean on in a time like this.

So thank you to you all and God Bless!!!

Greg & Kelsey

Today's post title comes to you from the one and only Greg Garka... Thanks for the idea babe!

As far as Mason is concernced today was another good day for our little man!
We made our goal and got up and went on a total of three walks. The last walk of the night he spotted the “playroom” and was interested so we stopped and visited with our neighbors while he played. It was the highlight of the day.

His appetite decreased today but that is to be expected since he hadn’t yet had a bowel movement (in 6 days)– however about 60 minutes ago things changed in that department and I am happy to report his bowels are working and back in action…

During his echo he was again a crowd pleaser and was on his best behavior. The technician said that he was the best 3 year old she has done. It is so funny; he gets upset when something is about to happen and he doesn’t understand what. He tells us he is scared and then after we explain to him what they are going to do and that it won’t hurt – he is…
