Today is Seth's birthday party. We're so excited! I've been working hard to try and get everything together on short notice. While Seth's party can't be as large as Sadie's was I wanted to make sure he still had a fabulous time surrounded by family and people who love him.
I spent a good part of Saturday night preparing so Sunday morning could be a little less chaotic.
Around 9:45 I headed out to pick up the balloons (which were put in a bag - this is the best thing I've ever seen so I didn't have to battle trying to get them all in the car), cake, and cold cut platter. When I got home the nurse was there finishing up Seth's labs. She told us she'd be sending them to Winchester and wished us well in case she didn't see us before transplant since we would be in and out of Boston all week for all the appointments. Sadie and I finished off putting up the decorations and setting up the outdoor tables and soon enough people were arriving.
I started off right away taking pictures with Seth because I didn't know how long he would last in his adorable outfit :)
About 20 minutes into the party we got a call from Boston Children's that Seth's calcium was still high and they wanted us to come in. Steve told them we had just started his party and fortunately they said we could wait a few hours before coming in.
That threw a wrench in our plans for the day but we adapted and did cake with Seth firth and then just tried to enjoyed the remaining time we had at home before heading into Boston.
Thank you to all who came out to celebrate Seth on Sunday and sorry we had to leave the party early.
For now we are waiting to see what is causing his calcium to be elevated.
