Weekend!!

This will be the first weekend we have had in...months?  Maybe since Scarlett was born.  Chris has both Saturday and Sunday off, Scarlett is relatively healthy and feeling good, the sun is out and we are ready to get out!!  There are so many things I want to do, even though I think Chris would love the opportunity to just sleep for the next two days.  We have a few birthday parties and a concert to attend, plus a few long-overdue tasks - Cosmo has been promised a dog park trip many times, but with a barfy baby and then a few days of rain, it just didn't happen.  Tomorrow is the day!

All my talk of exciting outings has everyone else worn out...
Naps for all the little ones, while I catch up on laundry.  Scarlett's room is finally beginning to look organized and clean again, and we will have clean clothes for all of our adventures!

Yesterday's CT scan looked good.  The ventricles in the remaining portion of her brain (where CSF is produced and circulated) are back to a normal size and shape.  This is a great improvement, and will eventually allow her head to grow back to a normal size and shape.  As bad as the collapsed bones look right now, the correct fluid pressure will help to push them back into position over the next few months.  I am more and more amazed by the infant brain every day. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
