3 month post-op check up

Yesterday was filled with doctor appointments. In the morning Jadyn had a blood test to check her coumadin level. Coumadin is a medication that she will be on for 6 months, it's job is to thin her blood while her heart heals from surgery.

She has her finger poked every week to check the levels. We have had a hard time keeping her in the therapeutic level, the the amount we give her has been increased for the second time now.
Jadyn prides herself on not crying, the last 2 weeks she hasn't made a peep! The nurse and I are so proud of her. She is sure to tell everyone there that she didn't cry. She walks out of there with a sticker and her favorite treat, a piece of gum.

Daddy left work and met us for lunch, then we all headed to see her cardiologist.

The only thing they decided to do was a chest x-ray.
Her oxygen saturation is a whopping 99% .
The Doctor could not be more pleased with her.
Will will return to see him next spring.

The Great Pumpkin Patch

We once again paid the price to enter the pumpkin patch, our 2 younger kids love it so it's worth the price!

On our way to climb the hay bale mountains

just pretending!

Look how I've grown

We got lost in a corn maze!
After about 10 minutes Jeron decided to let Dad lead us to safety.

waiting to jump out and scare Daddy & Jeron

Jadyn tried to pack this one back, but decided on a much smaller one.

The Princess and The Praying Mantis

Look what Jadyn found while we were doing yard work

She wanted to hold him...

as long as she had on her winter yard gloves

This would give me the creeps, but Jadyn thought it was funny.
I'm trying to toughen her up a little, this is a step in the right direction.

Ready to go again

This is what happens when your big brother has 5 hockey games in one weekend!
The first thing she said when she woke up was "do we get to go to more hockey now?"
I was happy to say "NO" we have been to 5 games and we get to stay home now.
It's early Sunday evening and we will finish up our weekend doing what she just did. Relaxing on the couch!
