I love our kids!

I haven't updated our blog in a little while and I wanted to just put up a few pictures and a little update of what has been going on.
Last Friday Tanner started getting super big bruises from his normal, routine falls. The knots and bruises were way bigger and darker than we've ever seen. We took him to the Sacred Heart Children's ER and he had super low platelets. Normal platelets is up above 200,000, and Tanner came in with between 2,000 and 3,000. He could've gotten hurt a lot worse (like internal bleeding). Tanner stayed for 3 days in the children's hospital while they gave him a few treatments. Eric was so nice and stayed all of the nights at the hospital. I am getting a little too uncomfortable to sleep too well in other beds. He responded super good and his platelets are up past 600,000 now. He is such a sweet boy!
Aubree did not like having our family apart and got so excited everytime she got to go see Tanner.
Here is a picture of Aubs coloring. She is pretty intense about coloring. She could color for hours if we sat there next to her and colored with her.

Wow! I am glad Tanner is doing better. I am sorry that you had to go though that. I am sorry He had to go through that. I hate it when kids end up in the hospital for any reason. I know you have a few more days to go, but I will be looking for new baby info. love you guys.

The poor buddy. What causes the platelets to be low? How do they get them back up? I am so glad he is better now...that cute little man! I will call you soon to play because I am missing my Jenny!

Thank heavens Tanner's platelets are up, that bruise on his head looks so sad. Only 2 more weeks! I am sure you still look hot and will handle three like eating cake. You're awesome! Wish we could see you guys! Take care.
