5 weeks.
8,000 milkshakes.
400 bowls of pudding.
72 cups of soup.
12 pounds lost
And 1 spaghetti incident we shall never speak of again

He is healed.

Excuse me whilst I break out into a happy lil jig.

So it's been about 3 hours since the Great Unwiring of 2012
and so far we hit KFC drive through for mashed potatoes

And then on to Panda Express for his long anticipated fried rice.

And a pit stop for some candy/cookie somethin somethin

And as I sit here and type this he is sitting on the back porch joyfully munching on some goldfish
while waiting for water to boil for some pasta. 

My hunch is that this kid will not stop eating for a few days.


It's definitely not an experience I ever want any of my kids to have to go through again but man alive did he ever handle it like a champ.

Thank you for all of your advice,
your love,
your wisdom,
your recipes,
and your lessons on gluten and blending of pasta
and most of all for not making too much fun of me when I was using my margarita machine as the blender. 

Jason Michael, you are so loved!
{And yes, I will take you to Five Guys for dinner. Just don't tell your brother.(s)}
or for that matter your father.


  1. Awesome!! Congrats Jason!! Just keep in mind Sonia, you and John raised that champ!! Congrats to you two!! =)

  2. WAHOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So happy for him and you!!! That has to be hard!

    And I just realized he has the flip name of our newest treasure who is Michael Jason :) Great minds think very similarly.

  3. YIPPEEEE!!!! So glad he's healed! Praise the Lord! :)

  4. I can't even imagine how happy you both must be!!! Wonder how long it will take him to gain the weight back?? :)

  5. Good job!! Praise the Lord this moment in time is over!!

    Eat up big boy!! You have some pounds to gain!

  6. Woo Hoo! I can highly recommend the following fast food tour we took last summer during the 1st week of repatriation. I can personally guarantee weight gain will occur! Five Guys, Chickfila, Sonic, Chickfila, Moe's, Chickfila, Cracker Barrel, Chickfila, Pizza Hut, Chickfila, Firehouse Subs, and Chickfila. Enjoy!

  7. So glad he can chew again. Have a great time at Disney. Which Disney are you guys doing? Disney Land or Disney World?
