Colin update

My wife sent this update just the other day. As you may remember Colin had some tough times his first couple of years with multiple hospital stays :(

.....but every day is new ;)

 Hello to all of our family and friends!

We haven't sent an update on Colin in awhile, so we thought since he had his 3 year well check yesterday; that this would be a good time to give everyone an update! 
He is happy and healthy and weighs 37.2 lbs. And is 39 1/4" tall. Which puts him in the 90th percentile for both weight and height! Thanks to his continued love of books and his amazing pre-school, he easily met his developmental milestones. He wasn't so excited about getting a shot, but it was a piece of cake compared to what he has been through in his short three years. We are grateful and Blessed that he has been fever free since his surgery last summer, and he recently had a check up with his immunologist at UCLA. The Dr. told us that they have never seen such a healthy child in their department. He doesn't have to go back unless he presents symptoms again, or when we drop him off for freshman year as a Bruin! 

We are forever grateful for all of the prayers that you sent our way while Colin was sick, and in and out of hospitals and doctors offices. As Sean likes to say "now my heart lives outside of my body."

Well his heart is smiling :)
