So we are having a little get together in a few weeks, and we are trying to straighten up the house. So Rachel informed me today (by text message ;) ) that I am moving my office into the basement. Here it is, can you blame her?
So I came home from work, and after dinner, figured out where I wanted to put my full desk. I have only been using about a 1/4 of it in the living room, as that is all that would fit. After I figured out where to put it, I had to run an electric circuit to it, as our basement doesn't have many outlets. Then I had to run a network homerun.
Then I moved the part of the desk that was already in the basement, swept up really good (paint that is partially pealing off a concrete floor is a pain in the butt to sweep up, especially when there are multiple layers of paint :(). I then went to the second floor of our house where we have some stuff stored and found one of the 5x9 carpets. Took that down to the basement and unrolled it.
Got the desk unloaded, carried into the basement and fully assymbled. And now I have all of the computer set back up.

We had a Dr's appointment for Wes and we went over the test results from the Friday before. Wes's platelets have come up to 175k. So they are in the normal range now. And his Jaundice is about gone. It isn't even a factor anymore. So we get to cancel the Hemotologist appointment, and Wes is doing just fine!!!!!
"Ohio's 2007 April FE, PE exam results have been mailed by ELSES
Ohio's 2007 April NCEES Fundamentals of Engineering and Principles and Practice of Engineering exam results have been mailed by ELSES, the Board's exam administrator. The Board cannot give exam results over the telephone or by email."
So, I will find out soon if I passed or not.
Rachel and I are blissfully tired :). Ricky has a cold on top of the new little one. Wes is doing great. He is eating good, pooping good and sleeping good, and that's about all babies do ;).
Today I am going to clean up the kitchen, pull off the chair rail, install a water line to the fridge, and do some rewiring. Fun, fun, fun :).
Hopefully Ricky will help me.
Oh, pictures are up of Wes at http://photos.johnsoax.com/
Rachel tells me that I got more sleep than she did, due to me falling asleep putting Ricky to bed.
Today is going well, we went and had the biliruben test this morning, and it is now at 11.1. Yesterday was at 11. But Dr Gill (our normal pediatrition) thinks everything looks good. He schedualed another biliruben and CDC (for the blood platelets) test for Friday, but if everything comes back good, we may not have to see the hemotologist at all. As Dr Gill said, "If all of your blood tests are normal, what is a hemotologist going to do?"
We also have another appointment with Dr Gill in a week. So we are having fun as a family now :).
Off for a family walk!!!!!
I should be getting the pictures up tonight.
older, so unless it gets worse again, we are out of the danger zone.
We have a Drs appointment tomorrow with our normal doctor!!
The hospital Dr gave us a choice, either stay one more night in the
hospital for the next billi-ruben test (jaundas), or go home and go to
St Mary's hospital in the morning to have the test. He didn't have a
preference. So which one do you think we chose ;).
We still have to set up the hemotologist appointment, but it won't be
till the 21st.
Pictures to follow tonight!!!!
way to clear up jaundus), and we are just awaiting the "official" test
results. Then he needs to be removed from the bili-light for 12 hours
with the jaundus not getting worse. So as far as we know, we may be
able to come home today.
Otherwise, I don't know what is going to happen. Ricky is staying
with my parents, and Mom only has so many vacation days to use for
this. I should be home for the whole week, but I have to confirm it
with my parents.
Please pray for our family.
here another day. Once that gets under control, we should be able to
On the platelet front, there was also no change, but we are going to
be refered to a hemotologist tomorrow. If there aren't any
appointments this week in Lima, we will get one in Dayton.
I'll keep you updated as things change.
