Good morning, DDA!

We are getting spoiled by all the beautiful weather we have been having (well, except for a couple of days).

Thanks, Elin, for the update. Lots and lots of love, prayers, and pixie dust to Janet, Gary, and their boys. I pray that they will find answers soon, and that the prognosis is positive.

I think I'm finally going to break down and join FB this weekend. I've been putting it off as another way of avoiding distractions, but it's becoming more and more important in order to stay informed in so many aspects of my life. So, if anyone wants to be friends on FB (or if there is a DDA group), let me know!

So last week we found out that dads cancer was back. He had been in remission since Nov. He will do at least 3-4 rounds of chemo, which is 3 days worth of 5 different chemos every 4 weeks. With a nupogen shot after every round and blood work drawn every week to watch his Hemoglobin and Hematocrit as last time they got real low. They will of course monitor his white blood cell count as well.

Then Grandma had a mini stroke last week but seems to be improving well.

Savannah is doing good she weighs almost 6lbs and has been home from the hospital for 2 weeks. Jen's Blood Pressure is still elevated and she is still taking meds. Lindsay this is my Brothers girlfriend and daughter Savannah was born at 29.6 weeks and weighed 2lbs 5oz. She was delivered early due to Jen having Severe PreEclampsia.

Jennifer - sending good thoughts your way

I can't believe we leave in less than three weeks, it doesn't look like I'll be returning to work before we go, hopefully this skin graft has taken and is generating new skin cells so we can get this thing healed over. I've accepted the fact that it's going to be quite a while before I can stand on it for any length of time without pain, I just want to get on with it.

Elin - give me a time and place and we'll meet you there, I'm so looking forward to seeing you guys again.

My daughters and SIL's are a mess, you wouldn't believe what they are calling me because of the origin of the skin graft they used.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

I'm so sorry, I hope he responds well to this new round. It's good to hear that Savannah is doing well. I hope they can get Lindsay's blood pressure under control. Usually blood pressure levels quickly after preEclampsia, at least it did for me

We had a decent weekend at the NSRA car show. The weather was much better than predicted and we were home earlier than I predicted. It was fun. Of course Chris' head is full of new ideas.

I took Nick to tour Champlain college on Saturday and we both really liked the school, the size and program seems prefect for him and they start work studies in their major field as early as Freshman year. They also have a great post college placement rate. Of course it is expensive He's only a junior so we are starting early, but it is definitely a contender.

Good morning, DDA!

Deb - Sounds like a nice weekend. The college sounds good for Nick. Always good to think early.

Debbie - I hope the graph is taking well and you'll be ready to go for your trip. Praying that the pain starts subsiding for you.

Jennifer - Hope your dad's treatments are going well. Praying always.

Busy weekend here. Saturday was the final celebration for Girl Scout's 100th birthday here. There was a parade, big family fest with over 100 activity booths and a free concert. We went for the parade and booths, but left before the concert as we'd decided to go to Disney on Ice for Deva's birthday. The birthday event was a lot of fun and we all LOVED Disney on Ice. Deva was enthralled. Then yesterday we had her birthday party with family and a few friends. She was SO excited! Cake had to go first once she saw it, "It's my Hap Birday take! Mama, I knee my fork!"

Her Wubbzy cake


She absolutely loved everyone singing to her


She got a plethora of Little People princesses (plus Wonder Woman and her invisible jet!). (Though now mommy's regretting not getting the castle despite the fact that we have a ton of Little People buildings so Santa may decide to bring that after all.)


She's very proud of herself for almost getting the "I'm two" fingers right. They waver between the thumb and pointer and a "Hook 'em Horns" version. My sister is an encourager of the horns version.

Bernadette - Glad you had a fun time in So Cal! I think you made a good call on the Half. Sure wish I could have made it out there to meet up with you and Deb's family, and Tia! That would have been awesome!

Tia - Good luck with playing nurse. Those knee replacements are tough to recover from! My mom had both her knees replaced at the same time. It was rough! However, once it was over she was so glad she had done it.

Things here are going quite well. The kids seem to be adjusting to the school year, and I'm adjusting to the down time, as well.

We are still in limbo on the moving situation, although Alan keeps hearing rumors that he's already been hired for the new position, so we don't know what to think. He asked his boss, and was told that it was a real possibility for January. If that happens, Alan will move south first, and live with my dad while he works and finds a house for us. I will stay put here, and help the kids finish out the school year, pack up and get ready to move after our Disneyland trip in June. Sigh. I just wish we knew for sure. Until we do, though, I'm decluttering, dejunking, and giving away a ton of stuff we don't need anymore. Good to do regardless, I guess.
Exciting news. I hope you find out soon.

Tia - She's so cute, the birthday party looks like a huge success!

I've been looking over the claims that have been sent in to my insurance, it is absolutely ridiculous, over $23,000.00 for my first visit to wound care? Yes they did a debridement, it took all of ten minutes for the procedure.

I broke down and reserved the scooter for the trip today, I need this getaway!

Tia - I loved seeing the pictures from Deva's party. I can't believe she is TWO!!

Debbie - You and Bob can have scooter races on the BoardWalk!! We will keep in touch about the best time to see one another. We will be in Epcot almost every day of our trip. We can usually be found in the World Showcase. That's where the action is!

Good morning, DDA!

I think I had told you all that one of the hospitals Bob was in last year is having an Open House celebrating their 5th year in Richmond. There are Kindred Hospitals all over the country, but the one here was very new 18 months ago when he was sent there from ICU here in F'burg. They invited us to return to help in the celebration and I am canceling all my classes and private lessons tomorrow to take him. I got an email yesterday asking if I would speak at the Open House. So, amidst all my lesson planning, assignment writing, composition editing and general everyday "stuff" I am trying very hard to put together some notes so I don't forget the things we both want to say to these wonderful people.

I think Bob is as excited to get all dressed up tomorrow for the first time since January 16, 2011. Business casual is dressed up for him these days... He also wants to show off a bit for them. As hard as they all tried, they were not able to get him walking while he was there. At the end of his month at Kindred he could sit on the side of the bed and get into a wheel chair without passing out. He cannot wait to walk in that door using his walker. I can't wait to see him do it!

That's so awesome, Elin! Sounds like a wonderful event and they're going to be so happy with Bob's progress, I'm sure.


Debbie - Glad you're getting the scooter and going for it. I'm sure it will be great even if a bit different than usual.

Hi, all. Sorry to drop away like that. Things got crazy here! Thanks, Tia, for posting the update on my brother. He's doing fine, now, and the doctor thinks they can keep his headaches under control, and not have them "stack" anymore.

We made a quick trip to see my brother and my dad this past weekend. Alan got to do some work on his Master's thesis documentary while we were there, so it was a productive weekend.

Katie is knee deep in rehearsals for Shakespeare competition which is October 4-6. She is really excited, and so am I! I'm going as a chaperone, so it will be interesting for us all!

Jacob survived his first bullying episode at Middle School, and came through it just fine! He's proud of the way he handled it, and his confidence has grown because of it. Of course, I am a wreck about it, and have placed a bunch of "spies" in the school to watch and see if it starts up again.

The twins went to their first sleep away camp last week. It's a school sponsored camp, and they had a great time! They are just really enjoying school this year!

Timothy has kept me busy with a fever that comes and goes. Unfortunately, he has a really bad gag reflex and any time I try to give him medicine, he just throws it back up. If this fever keeps coming back, we may just have to go with the suppositories. Ick!

Debbie - I'm praying that the skin graft takes, and that you can recover quickly! I'm glad that you reserved a scooter, though. It will make your trip much more enjoyable!

Lindsay - I'm on FB and would love to get a friend request from you!!!

Tia - The party looked so cute! Deva is adorable! I can't believe she's 2! How did that happen???

Jennifer - Prayers for your dad. That chemo is so hard. Good luck with it all. Glad the baby is doing so well!

Elin - Can't wait to hear all about Bob's triumphal return! I know he is proud of how far he has come, and he should be!

Deb - I can't believe you guys are college shopping!!! The boys are growing up way too fast! Good luck with all the decisions that are coming your way!

Glynis - Congratulations to Jacob, I hate the fact that a lot of times the kids that are bullied end up leaving school. I understand that parents have to do what they feel is best for their child, I'm just saying that it's a shame that the bully's are staying, they should be the ones punished, not the victims.

Elin - I can't wait to hear about Bob's reunion, I have to admit when I get to feeling sorry for myself I think of Bob and all he has overcome and it's helps to put things in perspective, we have to deal with the hand we are dealt and do the best we can. I have told Richie that he better not ever insist that I go to the doctor for something like this again!
