PCP appointment, Watch ascites, Jacob's 2

Jake's two years old today. Here's a picture of Jacob with cake frosting on his face, and a big smile on mommy's face. Later this evening, Jacob came pitter-pattering into the room, wearing that wig that Denise has on her head. I'd post a picture but I'm still traumatized. Oh, the birthday party theme is now changed to trains. That was on clearance sale but the jungle stuff wasn't. Easy choice. I thought perhaps Chinese food would be appropriate for a railroad theme.
But Greek food won out. Why? I figure it's because she was in the hospital during the Greek festival last September and she missed out. Makes perfect sense to me.
Denise's appointment with the primary care physician was productive. He wrote the necessary note to get Denise declared disabled. That'll open the door to some services if needed. He also wanted us to see the GI doctor because the feeding tube wound hasn't closed up yet. Also, we need to keep an eye on the ascites (fluid buildup in the tummy area).

Happy Birthday, Jacob! And Denise, you and I share the same birthday! I'm so glad you're home and your recovery continues. Phil, thanks for the helpful hint about blogs and drafts and such - I read it several weeks, probably, after you wrote it, and was delighted that you were looking in on me. I hope you'll continue to do so. What a wonderful new beginning for all of you - this Easter will really be relevant, won't it?
Much regards and respect,
Anne

Looking good!
Denise looks happy and very much on the mend. What a wonder!
And now your attention begins to shift. We are still with you in prayer.
