Happy Holidays

First Carters update: No surgery for now. Since the cyst isn't getting significantly larger and not affecting Carters eye development. We have decided to hold off on surgery until he is older.
This past weekend Carter and Noah got to visit Santa. I consider this a success. Noah did NOT cry. He didn't sit on Santa's lap, but gave him a high five and took his candy. Carter got to sit on his lap and ponder his beard. Luckily he didn't tug on it too hard.
The holidays are fast approaching. The Fricke family hopes this finds you and yours well and many blessing for a festive and Merry Christmas and a fruitful New Year.

Our Consult with the Plastic Surgeon

Well yesterday afternoon Carter and Mommy braved the snow/rain/slush to make a trip to the Plastic Surgeon. :) After examining Carter's eye, asking questions, and the nurses oogling over how cute Carter was. The surgeon decided that its mostly likely a cyst. Some good news is that since the cyst is on the side of the eye, it (the cyst) should not grow back into Carter's cranial cavity. Sadly some times kids get cyst in between their eyes and there is a suture line there, so for those cyst they must do surgery asap, to make sure the cyst doesn't grow back into the brain. ONE PRAYER ANSWERED!!
The doctor usually doesn't like to do surgery until after 6 months old. Since Carter's protrusion is not affecting his vision yet and not seeming to cause him any discomfort, the nurse took pictures of the cyst from multiple angles and we will go back in another month. If the growth continues to grow we will discuss surgery at that time. Of course, in the mean time, should anything change drastically, we would go back in sooner. They did say RARELY the growths can get smaller and go away on their own, but we aren't counting on that.

Update on Carter's eye

Some know, some don't but for the last 2-2 1/2 months Carter has had a growth above his right eye. At his check-up a month ago the Pediatrician said it could be one of two things. 1.) a nother hemangioma (he has a large one on his upper chest/shoulder area that is quite larger & a small dot of one under his arm pit) or 2.) a dermoid cyst. We would just wait. On one of the pictures you can see the growth pretty well.
Well the growth has been getting larger, so mommy took him back to the Ped this week. Not a lot of new information, but we do go to a consolation with a plastic surgeon next Wednesday. It depends on what they say as to where things will go from there. A: surgery, b: CAT scan, c: further consulate with a specialist, or d: other. :-)
So after our next appt I will update further. Thanks.
I don't want my picture taken mommy.
Here you can see the puffiness of his eye

Party at the Pumpkin Patch

This past weekend we went to the Roca Berry Farm with Grandma and Papa Scott. Carter slept most of the time while Noah was all over the place having a blast.

Day at the Zoo

I believe this is the 4th time this season the Noah has gone to the zoo this season but it was the first time he got to go with Kael & Grandma Barb. Everyone had a great time, the weather stayed nice, and the boys got along.

Fall into FUN

Well, the time is just flying by. Carter is now 4 months old and doing great. Noah is about 2 ½ years old and every bit of a young man. Some of the things he thinks and says. And we’ve learned to be very VERY careful about what we say around him. Even when you think he’s not listening, he is.

Both boys love to be outside. Unfortunately they both have a mild cough (so does mommy). We’re thinking they will both probably have allergies. But it doesn’t stop Noah from wanting to be outside whenever possible.

Carter was baptized this past Sunday. What a gorgeous day to spend the day outside, with the family. He did relatively well, but was getting hungry and tired toward the end.

Noah just loved that everyone came over to ‘his house’ and didn’t understand where every one went, Cause no one was there when he got up from his nap.

We continue to cheer on our HUSKERS, even after last weekend.

Fall is here. In the next few weeks we are planning on making a final trip to the Lincoln Children Zoo and to the Roca Berry farm. So pictures will be coming from those outings in the next post.

It's been awhile. So good to be back on here!
