This Week in Pictures

Not much new to report on the medical front, so I thought it was high-time I shared some recent pics of Stephen!  Enjoy!!

Stephen and Mabel admiring the snow on Wednesday morning.  The western DC suburbs got snow (we got somewhere around 6"), but Snowquester was a bust inside the beltway.

Stephen went to the dentist for the first time yesterday.  This is his before shot and the next is the after shot.  You can see a remarkable difference!  We thought his teeth were stained so yellow from both the kidney disease and all of the medications.  But it turns out, that it's really because he doesn't eat.  Eating helps to get rid of plaque and "junk" that builds up on our teeth.  It took three people to hold him down for the dentist to "scrape" his teeth, but I think it was definitely worth it!  And Stephen survived despite what the "after" pic shows :)  The tears came from Mommy prying the camera away from someone's little fingers.

Checking out the cool new library around the corner from our house.

Hangin' at Mimi and Poppy's house in PA for a few days last week.


  1. Stephen is just too cute! I loved the picture with the daffodils. Uncle Dick is working on Stephen's plane as I write. Construction is almost completed then comes the finishing. Hopefully we can get it down to you folks before you leave for Philadelphia. Talked to Poppy this week and he said Stephen is doing wonderful. Keep up the good work Mom. In our thoughts and prayers constantly.

  4. Stephen is so amazing! I am truly inspired by his story and the compassion both you and your spouse have. Wishing you all well and keeping you lifted in prayer.
