When Kaydens was born his right foot was pretty twisted. The doctor thought it was just a positioning thing and if I massaged it then he should be fine. But it could also be a clubfoot. So to double check we went up to Primary Childrens on the 16th of October.
We got to our appointment and they started putting a cast on him!!! Not exactly what I was expecting. Needless to say he will have a cast on for 3-6 weeks, and I will be going up to Primary Childrens every week to get it re-casted. When his foot has been positioned right from the cast they do a small surgery and cut a tendion in his heal, which will grow back correctly. Then he has to wear these boot things with a bar bracing it between his feet 23 hours a day until he can pull himself up on the couch or chair. At that time we can take them off him during the day, but they must be put back on each night until he is 2 or 3 years old. The plan is after all this he should be able to walk and play like any other kid without any problem!~

Kayden had really bad biliruban so we put him under the lights... But then his temp. was struggling to say the least and kept dropping down. Finally Saturday night we took him to the ER in Mt. Pleasant- They started taking his blood and poking him several times. It was sad to watch and then they even put an IV on him- Which I just hated, even if it was for the best. After several hours of testing and trying to raise his temp. they decided he needed to be taken up to Provo. At five days Kayden was taking his first ambulance ride and I was starting to get more and more worried- It was around 3am when we got there and in the ambulance they had finally gotten his temp. to normal. We spent sunday-tuesday in the hospital monitering him for an infection.
Along with his lack of keeping his temp. up, his biliruban kept going up, so they put him under the lights in the hospital and had to put this annoying band over his face- Which he HATED! They had to test his biliruban 10 times! They do this by making a small slice in the foot and getting blood- After a while he didnt even wake up to them doing it, because it had been done so many times...
Kayden had an IV the whole time and he kept karate chopping himself in the head!- Anywayz, After the scare, he went home tue afternoon happy and healthy!

We had a baby! But it wasnt Lynzie... Instead of a little girl we had ourselves a little boy! His name is Casten Kayden Fischer, he goes by Kayden (or at least we call him Kayden) He came September 29th at 1:08A, he was 6pounds 15ounces 20" long. He came exactly 3 weeks early but was very healthy and strong!- When the nurse gave him to me for the first time, he looked at me and then stuck out his tongue! Oh boy!!
This is a picture of our new family just before the nurses took Kayden to be cleaned.
He is a Fischer!
