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

2 Birthdays and a Party

Both of my cuties had a birthday within the last month. Reagan turned 8 and Roman turned 4. I just can not believe how grown up they both are. They had a joint birthday party at the Houston Zoo. It was so much fun and the kids really liked having their party together. It was so much easier for me, that much is for sure :) BTW, the BEAUTIFUL flowers were for Reagan from sweet Peyton. He is so special to Reagan. Hugs

It's All About Me Girls Weekend

It has been a LONG time since my last post :( It has been SUCH a busy few weeks, all leading up to a Fabulous 5 days with my girlfriends from all around the USA......Shannon from Arizona, Keely from Chicago, Shari from Michigan, Susan from New York, Christa from Arizona, Carolyn from Maine and of coarse Tanya from Colorado. The fun included the Nutcracker Market, The Pink Store, Pappasita's Margaritas, Sam Moon, A Christmas Carol, Discovery Green, The Presidents' heads, and LOTS and LOTS of girl time. We were missing three good girlfriends, Teri, Cindy and Ann.....It is never the same without you girls :(

It was such a fun. I love these girls. They mean the world to me. We slept late, drank good wine, and just enjoyed each others company. We laughed until we cried. I can't wait until we can get together again. Hugs
