He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

So long pre-school it's been fun. Kindergarten here they come!

Boy Parts

I was always a modest child. Growing up, there was never any fear of me showing skin as a teenager and I don't even think I used the word penis in public until I had Noah. Boy has that changed since then. First, as you all know Joshua had a testicular relapse 2 years ago. All three of my boys had to have special appointments set up to be circumcised because they were such tiny babies, and then Joshua wouldn't stop bleeding so we had to rush him back to the doctor so that they could put silver nitrate on it to stop the bleeding. OUCH! And now we have more to add to more to our boy part adventures.

If you remember, we had to have a knot removed from Noah's leg last fall. Turned out to be nothing but in the process we found that one of his testicles had retracted and was no longer descended. We were told not to rush but that he would probably need surgery. This past week, Jeff and I took Noah to Hopkins to see the same urologist that did Joshua's biopsy. He confirmed that yes, Noah needs surgery this summer to pull that testicle down. So in case your keeping tabs, that means Joshua will have surgery in June for a spinal tap and hopefully to have his port removed. Noah will have surgery in July for the testicle and then Joshua will finish chemo in August. Busy summer for us.

Oh and just to give you a good laugh at us Czorapinskis, remember how I am always talking about Adam and his allergies. You know. I've written about how I have given him Zyrtec, Singulair AND Nasonex year round for the past 3 years. Well, we had him allergy tested last week and he's allergic to....

NOTHING! Can't wait to see what Noah is allergic to in June when we have him tested. I do know that he has to have a tree nut allergy since he breaks out in hives if he's eaten them but we'll see since these kids always keep me on my toes!
