Back in the swing of things

Peyton has had a great week. We are trying to get back into the swing of things here at home. He has started back to his therapies here at home. Horse back riding is out for the summer but will start back up in September. We have been working on eating all week with lots of stand-offs. Crazy little boy!!! Thursday was the first day that he ate and drank for me really well. I am hoping that he keeps up the good work. If he does keep it up we may be able to go down on what is left of his pump feed.
Thursday night we had to go back to Dallas because he had an early morning doctor appointment on Friday. We stayed at the Ronald McDonald House for the night. Friday morning we went to see the Orthopedic just to make sure that Peyton's legs and hips had no problems. His feet are turned out some but the doctor said that everything is okay. There is nothing to worry about. We were very relieved to get this news. When we originally made the appointment back in November he was falling some and his right foot seemed to be turned out more. Doctor said just to continue with his physical therapy. No need to return unless some other problems occur.

Here are a few pictures from the 4th of July fireworks here in Longview.

Since we have been home is has been so hot outside that we have not been able to play for long periods of time. We have to go out early morning or late afternoon. This 100 degree weather is no fun!! We are just trying to stay as cool as possible. I can only imagine what the weather is going to be like in August.
