I don't want to jinx things but..........

...........Bilal has been off his reflux med, Prevacid and the appetite stimulant Periactin for 2 weeks. Thank God, so far so good! He has not had night time awakenings like he did the last time we tried to wean his Prevacid, and appetite still looks good. I think I can stop holding my breath now.

It's been a restful weekend so far, I actually took an afternoon nap myself today! While Mama, Baba and Bilal napped, Safa and Hamza exercised their singing talents with Sing Star. Well, there could be worse ways to spend a Saturday afternoon!

We're starting to get a sense of fall, as the mornings are a bit cooler, in the mid 50s, although the daytime temps are still going up into the low 80s. There hasn't been much sign of the leaves changing color yet. Our confederate rose is starting to bloom. Last year we had a frost right after the first flower bloomed, so that was the end of flowers for the season. This time with the predictions of milder weather maybe we'll see more. I really wonder why it's called a rose at all, it's really a type of hibiscus.

On another note, the new pet fish Bubbles and Blaze are still alive and looking healthy. That's one week. Over the past week Safa would come home every day and wonder if Bubbles was still alive, maybe she can take it for granted now! They are supposed to have a life span of 2-3 years, so lets see. But what's a pet you can't cuddle or stroke? That's my own opinion.

YAY for the weaning of medicines! That is always the best. Looks like you guys have been pretty busy around there. Hope that the weather stays nice and you get to see lots of those beautiful flowers!

Heart Hugs,

Great news about Bilal's meds! He is getting so big. Every time I read the blog I'm amazed at all the things he is doing. You sure have your hands full.

What great news that the medication weaning seems to be going well. It's always good to drops meds. A family nap sounds AWESOME right about now. We are enjoying the cooler night-time and early morning temps, too. I love fall!

So glad that things continue to go well for Bilal! He looks like such a big boy in his photos lately.

Your confederate roses look beautiful. I've never heard of them before and I'm betting it's because they don't grow in my climate. We have something similar called rose of sharon, which is also a type of hibiscus.
