Past and Passed (Out)

I was just reading some old blog posts while Orion was playing on his Leapster. I can hear the music of one of the games, and i gave him a time limit of 10 minutes. I am sitting on the couch with the laptop in front of me, and when I move my laptop to look over at him, he's totally passed out on the ground! He is worn out from this cold he has....

I'm putting in more effort to our blog and not relying on social sites so much to post updates. With the new baby coming along, it's nice to see the growth and change over time in one place and we can look back and read about it.

As I was saying, I was reading old posts. I went back a year and read a post I wrote on Sept 16 2010. It was after a doctor visit and how our pediatrician said it would take Orion about 1.5 years to get to that minimum weight of 35-40 pounds to be a candidate for heart surgery via cath. At the time he was 27 pounds. Well, it is now a year later and he is a solid 30 pounds. I guess this is going to take much longer. At least we know his heart is still doing good and hasn't had any new changes in the last year. Maybe he will still have another year to get bigger and not need surgery yet. Maybe two :)

Tonight is back to school night but seeing how Orion is passed out on our living room floor, I'm not sure how this is going to pan out. Hopefully one of us will be able to make it there.
