A Merry Little Christmas

Wow, I have been OFFLINE for the month of December :)
We had a really busy month. Jerad took me to New Orleans for a quick 3 day get away. I will post some photos of that trip later. Then we had to finish up school for the kids before the holiday. Rush here, rush there, you ALL know what I mean right? We spent the holiday here with my brother and Kara and their three kids. They were so cute. What a blessing family is. We are off to the beach this week to work on the house for summer. Will leave you with a few pics from the holiday. Hugs

Baby It's Cold Outside :)

Today, we had a miracle in Houston.....It SNOWED, and snowed, and snowed. We got about 3 inches of the fluffy white stuff. I let Reagan and Roman stay home to enjoy the entire chilly experience. They loved it!!! Tomight, it is supposed to get down to 25 degrees so we are wrapped up tight here at home. Shannon, I am including some pics of your buddy Oliver :) Hugs

So Much To Be Thankful For

What a week we have had here at the Forrest Household. On Monday evening, Roman had a bizarre incident at the dinner table. During the meal, he suddenly grabbed his throat in pain. He screamed and cried out that something was stuck in his throat. He vomited several times but still felt something in his throat. After talking with our friend Adam, we drove him To Memorial Hospital Southeast. Adam was waiting there when we arrived and they took him straight back. After a careful examination, Roman went for xrays. What they found in those xrays was just a mother's worst nightmare. He had a metal type wire in his throat!!!!! I mean really, i wanted to faint.
They recommended we transport him to Hermann Hospital in Houston. They took him by ambulance and I must say he loved that :)

After arriving there, they had to decide who would be best suited to operate on Roman. Once they decided who would operate, we were sent up to our room to wait for surgery. He was taken into surgery at 9:00 AM and about an hour later, they brought out the wire to show us. It was a wire from the grill brush that we use to clean the grill before we cook. That one inch piece of wire cost my baby so much pain.

He came through with flying colors. The Hermann Hospital family was just fantastic. Our experience there was truly amazing and I CAN NOT thank Adam for sending us in the right direction. These photos were taken with my iphone. Hugs
