We’ve had a very busy couple of weeks.  A week or so ago, I flew to Little Rock to see a concert with Danielle, a BFF from college.dea and danielle  Smile  We went to see Lady Antebellum.  lady aWe really enjoyed the show.  They had Thompson Square and Darius Rucker open for them.  I liked Lady A, but I liked Darius Rucker better.  For those who aren’t aware, he is “Hootie” from Hootie and the Blowfish.  

While I was in Arkansas, Scott was at pre-teen church camp.  A really exciting thing happened while he was there!  He came to know Jesus as his Lord and Savior!  He will be baptized on July 22.  The same week, Matthew spent a week with very dear friends of ours, the Pivonkas.  Jamie and John’s daughter was in our training class at 4 Paws when we got Omri.  Their daughter got a Service Dog also, Kyto.  Omri and Kyto played all week!  Jamie & John woke up their last night there to one of Matt’s night terrors.  Sad smile  Not good!  Luckily, since they had gone through training with us, they knew the commands to use on Omri for him to help calm Matthew down.  Thank GOD for 4 Paws and for Omri! Thanks John, Jamie, Hailey, Katie and Kyto for having Matthew over!

 happy 4th omri We went to see our local July 4th parade.  This is Omri under the truck.  Doesn’t he look patriotic?  We spent the day napping, eating hot dogs and hamburgers that Jason grilled out and vegging in front of the TV.  That night, Scott wasn’t feeling well so I stayed home with him while Jason and Matt went to see the fireworks.  While they were gone, Scott got worse so I took him to the Emergency Room.  They initially diagnosed him with pneumonia then changed it to an asthma crisis. (They’re still not really sure what caused his breathing crisis.)  He was admitted to the hospital overnight.  We went home the next day around 6:30 P.M.  Here is Omri calming Scott down on his hospital bed.  Matthew had gone on a church youth group trip to 6 Flags and to see the Texas Rangers play ball.  We were afraid Omri would burn his pads on his paws so he stayed home.  Good thing, too, cause when we took him to hospital, Scott’s heart rate dropped 30 beats!Omri on Scotts hospital bedCurrently, Scott is in bed, but we have a follow-up appointment with his pediatrician first thing in the morning to see if he is doing better or not.  He is breathing a little better, but I can tell he’s still not 100% & probably won’t be for a long time.  I just hope he doesn’t have to be re-admitted!
