Update 7/22/13 on Tripp Halstead

 

Stacy: Trippadoo waking up in his new bed. I “slept” (I use this word lightly) beside him in the other twin bed. I don’t know what was wrong with all of us last night. Tripp was conked out before 10, I was struggling and struggling to stay awake till 11:30 to give him meds and Bill was tired. So finally it was after 11:30, so i gave the meds and climbed into bed and laid there, laid there, laid there, so at 1:30 I got up and Bill was still awake, Tripp was awake. So we all tried to go back to sleep, I made it till 3:30 and heard Tripp’s breathing pattern change. So I look over and he is wide awake and stays awake til 4:30! Then he doses off, and wakes up again when my alarm goes off for his 5:30 meds, he is up till 6. Then my alarm goes off at 7:30 for therapy!! Ahhhhh We are a tired bunch this morning on the way to therapy. And something smells. I think Tripp is working on a surprise for us. Guess what Dadda. Ha ha Well headed to the lake to visit friends after therapy, hope Tripp has a great day. Thank you for all your prayers! Love you all.

Update 7/21/13 on Tripp Halstead

 

Stacy: Tripp had another good night. He is watching some racing on TV now. He seems very alert and content. Bill and I are still moving boxes from moms house to our house. So moms house is getting tidier (is that a word?) and ours is getting messier. More messy? Anyway, you guys know by now that proper grammar and/or spelling is not my forte.(Neither is the word forte) ha ha. Back to Tripp. He has a very laid back day planned. If the weather holds out, we are taking him swimming tonight. Thank you for all your prayers, love you all.

    Stacy: Well, we only got to swim for about 15 minutes then the thunder started. He liked swimming, when we got out he started getting fussy. I told him that I would get in the bath with him so he could float some more and he made a pouty face. It was funny cause you never really know if he totally understands or it is coincidence. (We just assume he understands) But when we got home the crazies came over, so my sister is holding him in the play room with the other kids and they are all playing. Tomorrow is a big day, we are going to the lake. The sad part is that Tripp can’t get his G Tube wet. Too much bacteria in lakes to risk it. We will be riding on a pontoon so I hope he will love that part and we can put his legs in the water. (I am sure my family will be singing the song “Pontoon” by Little Big Town over and over and over) Tripp has had a good day, no arching or throwing up. Hope tomorrow goes just as good. Thank you for your prayers! Love you all.
