We are back home and have settled back into life. Carla is going to Xcell and taking swimming lessons (although the weather is not cooperating), Bobby has been picking up extra shifts and I am busy taking the dog out every five minutes so that he doesn't go to the bathroom in the house. Potty training dogs is the pits. But, he is cute and we love him :)
Carla's vocal cord procedure seems to be a big success. I quit giving her the antibiotics she has been on for like ever, and her cough has gone away! Her voice is definitely louder and so less breathy when she speaks. We will go back to Seattle for a checkup in July and then wait for things to start changing with her voice so that we can schedule the more "permanent" procedure. The gel they injected into the vocal cord on June 9th is a temporary (1 to 3 month) gel (to make sure she could handle the procedure). After the temporary gel wears off, they will inject a more permanent (3 to 5 year) gel.
I have been finding it hard to find the time to update the blog, and blogger has been a total pain in the rear end with regard to not putting my pictures in the right order and then also some other annoying stuff. So, please bear with me. Right now I have to wake Carla up for Xcell and get ready for the day. I just wanted everyone to know everything is going swell :)
