    It is Lynda from previously central Illinois! And yes, I recall that fabulous encounter on the Poly beach! :rotfl:That was a great night indeed! So many Dissers!! Josh is great, and we have a little one now, DS by the name of Avery who is about to be 2. pirate: Loving life in Florida (about 30 minutes from the mouse)! How are you and smidgy? We should meet up while you are down here too! Monica, when are you meeting up with this fellow?

    :hug: for Zack! I hope he recovers quickly.

    Wow, I sure hope Zach get's better soon. Your family is sounding more and more like us every day! And I , too, lost my appendix when I was 15, and just as they were removing it, it burst, half in and half out, which meant I got to wear tubes down mhy nose into my stomach for the next 5 days in the hospital.


    I almost just went and posted a picture from that night, but I don't want tio take over here. Monica if you want to see who your freaky friend is here, and Lynda if you don't mind, just say the word, I've got a great picture of you and Josh, on the beach, being lectured to by LexMelinda.
    Oh, and congrats on the two year old, Avery, sure took you long enough.

    You never need to ask, post away.

    Zack is home recouping and building up his strength for Disney.

    He is sore and they gave him a script for Vikes. Waiting to see if we really need to fill it or if the OTC meds can control his pain.

    Glad he is recouping well!!

    As for Vikes, I think I know someone who would take them off your hands if you dont need them

    In keeping with the drug theme, we were cleaning out the hall closet today in case the TV installation people need to grt there t o install the TV. Yhis closet housed many things, including years old pills. Hubby found Oxicodin from 2008. I offered to try them. but my DD threw a fit. Wonder why? I heard that's great stuff.

    I thought I give you all an update on the last 24 hours now that Zack is settled in at home and his adoring and duped sisters are taking care of his every demand.

    Yesterday I had the girls at cheerleading practice. I decided to walk the track and managed 11 laps, including sprints. I have had foot issues for about 6 months and my foot is usually screaming at me by the end of the day. On Monday I had an x-ray taken to help figure things out. When I was done, I was seriously considering crawling back to my car. The heel is toast and this concerns me.

    My phone rings and its Tim. “We have a problem.” This is a serious statement and he has my full attention.

    “Zack is in pain and in tears, it’s his side and it keeps getting worse.”

    I tell him to take him to urgent care and then change my mind and tell him the hospital ER in case it’s serious and they have to really do something for him.

    A 20 minute drive, but I felt that’s where he needed to be.

    They go, and I worry.

    I get the girls home and give them a shower and try to sit on the deck, I call Tim, text, FB, I can’t get him to respond. That is the surest way to send a mom to the looney bin folks.

    I want updates, like every 5 minutes. I need to know if he’s smiling, crying, in pain, what he’s saying and who is saying what to him.

    Me being home is not working out for me at this moment.

    Tim left his phone in the car.

    Seriously?

    Who does that?

    He must have gotten whacked up side the head by one of my mental images and decided to get his phone and call me.

    By this time they drew blood, and did an ultra sound, and put Zack on a Morphine drip!

    I put the girls in my bed and thought I’d lie down with them but I was a bag of nerves.

    I left them and went downstairs to Dis.

    Tim called to tell me they were doing a CT scan and Zack was drinking barium.
    Ha! Zack is the pickiest eater of all four of my kids. I have no idea how they got him to drink that although it took him an hour.

    My phone rings again and Tim tells me his white blood cell count is like 18,000which is high and an indication that Zack’s days of being whole is shot!

    The appendix needs to come out!

    And I need to get my butt to the hospital.

    I put Matt in charge of the girls, get them in their own beds, change and head to the hospital.

    There is no worse feeling than walking into your child’s ER room and finding it empty. ACK!!! Did I miss them!? Are they already operating?

    A nurse walking by sees my state of panic and leads me to the front desk where I find out he is getting his CT.

    They bring him back and shortly after they confirm he has appendicitis. He will be taken to the OR soon and not 10 minutes later the hot assisting surgeon comes and gets my son. Follow me he says, I jump up and and obey!

    The line of the night was, “You are a big 13 year old.” And Zack’s reply of the night was, “I have been told.” I loved how he managed to keep his sense of humor through this.

    At 12:30am he was taken to OR for prep

    At 2:00am the hospital issued a code black

    At 2:20am he was taken into surgery

    At 3:30am the surgeon came to tell us Zack was done and doing fine. There was a code black and that means there is bad storms and we can’t go back.

    At 4:30am they lifted the code black

    At 5:00am they come get us and take Zack and us to pediatric floor.

    That struck me funny that he was on this floor looking at my adult sized son, but after all he a really big 13 year old.

    I left at 5:30am to be there for when the other kids woke up. Plus I had a 10:30 Dr. apt for my foot.

    I think I got a 2-3 hour nap. Matt has his last day of camp at 11:30 and then we can all go back to the hospital and relieve Tim.

    Side note: I found out that I have a bone spur and the doctor gave me a cortisone shot, IN MY FOOT WITH A NEEDLE!
    I was not ready for this and I stopped him saying I needed a moment to prepare myself. “Oh, you are ones of those,” he says, and he sprays some freezing cold spray on my heel. Told me to not look and put that needle in my foot. I inhaled and forgot how to breathe. He had to remind me twice.
    I can finally walk without feeling pain. I hope that means I can manage the parks better. He also gave me a treatment plan to avoid surgery and arch support inserts for my shoes. I think I’m finally 6’ tall!


    We arrive back to the hospital at about 2:15pm. Tim left with the kids and I stayed til about 5pm with Zack, just waiting to be discharged.

    We got home close to 6pm. EXHAUSTED, but relieved that my family is all fine and together and HOME.

    Sadly Zack had to give up his appendix, a useless part of the body, 9 days before we leave for our Disney trip.

    The doctor is not too sure about letting him swimtime soon any so our plans may have to change.

    Here's hoping he has a great week of healing. And this is my cue to open a mommy drink.

    Never a dull moment and I still love this crazy life I have been blessed with.

    Thanks Maria welcome to the looney bin!

    Definitely keeping that a top priority, he has already brought this up and is worried about spoiling things for his siblings. Who is this kid? Really?

    Wow! I hope that Zach is feeling better soon!

    You sure earned that mommy drink, maybe you should have had two!

    That needle in the foot had me cringing. At least it's feeling better now though!

    Can I have a mommy drink too?
    I have also had that cortisone shot, ritht into the very top of the foot, and I think it went all the way through until it struck the wood flooring underneath.
    Nicely told Monica, it was nice of him to give up a body part for the sake of the report.

    Now,,, let's see what I can find of our dear freind Lynda:

    I think this is them right here:

    But this one was my favorite;
    notice the looks of horror on their faces as Melinda describes what it is
    like trying to live with two teenageers and a preteen all in one, stinkin' room!

    I actually am starting to get caught up. Who knew?

    Sorry, all I got from that is you're hot.

    Was Caligula a Disney movie?

    No?

    Huh.

    But they are making "Honey, I shrunk the monymonys"

    Congrats! Premature, but who cares? Well deserved.

    Could you please explain in detail exactly why it was busy?

    You're expecting a snarky comment here, aren't you?
    Well you're not going to get it. His TR is the best on the Dis and I'm envious that you'll get to meet them.

    I read your and others posts re: getting flack for staying offsite. You'll notice in my siggie that we stayed offsite the first few times and won't "ever again". But I don't get why people would get worked up about others' choices.

    Who cares what someone else is doing. If you want my advice, I'll give it. But if you're happy with what you're doing, (whatever that might be) then I'm happy for you.

    Bottom line is, whatever gets you where you want to go is just fine by me.

    Congrats to your husband on beating it!

    The road less traveled. Nice.

    Let&#8217;s assign the number of children (4) to the value &#8216;x&#8217;. Let&#8217;s also assign the number of adults (2) the value &#8216;b&#8217;.

    So 1/2 of x = 2. Let&#8217;s call 1/2x &#8216;a&#8217;

    So, a=b (2 = 2 right?)

    Multiply both sides by a

    aa = ab

    Subtract b squared

    aa &#8211; bb = ab &#8211; bb

    Factor both sides

    (a-b)(a+b) = b(a-b)

    Divide out (a-b)

    a + b = b

    Since a = b we can re-write the equation as:

    b + b = b or 2+2 = 2 or 4 = 2

    So since the number of adults is either 4 or 2 we&#8217;ll take the average, which is 3. 4 kids plus 3 adults = 7 people.

    See? Wasn&#8217;t hard.


    So that&#8217;s 7.5 of you now?

    Mum&#8217;s the word. No wait you&#8217;re the mum.

    Sounds good to me!

    Okay, OKAY!

    Sheesh.

    :lmao:

    I&#8217;m not sure, but rumour has it that all husbands who post here, are.

    Cutie patootie. :goodvibes:

    Ah, yes. I remember when I was about 13 and was laid up. I made my DSis a virtual slave.

    It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.

    Sorry to hear that.

    Toast is better if you scrape off the burnt bits.

    Never a good call. And there&#8217;s only one thing that can make it worse.


    And that&#8217;s it.

    Boy, that was a good call on your part. What made you change your mind?

    Parents are really good at that&#8230;. And it never ends.

    Yikes. If your foot wasn&#8217;t sore, I&#8217;m sure you would&#8217;ve paced a hole in the deck.

    I&#8217;d say Tim was lucky. If you hadn&#8217;t been so concerned with Zack&#8230;. I shudder at the thought. :rolleyes:

    And right about now, Mom&#8217;s in need of some meds, too, I&#8217;m betting.

    Poor guy. I remember when our first DD was a baby and my MIL decided to overdose her with Tylenol (don&#8217;t ask). She had to drink this charcoal mixture. Afterwards, she looked like a miner who&#8217;d been in a bad accident&#8230; but she was smiling.


    Oh, my gosh. You must have been flipping out. I know I would&#8217;ve been.
    Oh, boy. I can feel your terror from here.

    Did you follow him because he was hot?

    :laughing:

    Were you breathing a sigh of relief at this point? Or only when you got to see him?

    Been there. Done that. Will do it again.

    Still sucks.

    :faint:

    Glad to hear that the foot&#8217;s feeling better, and congrats on the new elevation.

    I can believe that!

    I have a few co-workers that have useless parts of the body. But I can&#8217;t get a doctor to remove their collective brains.

    I&#8217;m thinking that a change in plans now is better than a sick boy in Disney.

    Wow. That&#8217;s quite the update. Glad to hear he&#8217;s doing better now.

    You might want to go ahead and fill that prescription. If he doesn&#8217;t need them, you can mail them off. I&#8217;ve got Nebo&#8217;s address if you need it.

    When do you come back from your trip?

    Thanks, today is rough with pain, just like they said it would be.

    I miss lexy too! He is resting and hopefully healing fast, thanks!

    If I wasn't so tired I might have had more.

    Thanks for the giggles! Priceless stuff!

    Okay, I think I'm caught up!

    Holy moly!! I'm *so* glad Zack is okay. I can imagine how freaked out you were when Tim didn't answer his phone or texts or anything. I'd have been insane. I hope Zack is continuing to recover nicely and that the doctor gives him the okay to swim while you're at Disney.

    Also glad to hear your pain is gone and that you'll be walking more comfortably while at Disney. Woo hoo!

    Oh, and how incredibly ridiculous that people belittle others for their choice of accommodations. What a stupid thing to need to feel superior about.

    I really don't like a lot of people. ;)

    Again, so glad you and Zack are both doing better!!

    Ponzi,, twas a great job on the Mony breakdown, which also came close to being a tad too literal. I especially liked your math exhibition,, seriously, well done.

    Monica,,, we shall meet up I guess at Ak on that saturday, maybe if Marita isn't doing anything she can join us? Or Lynda too?

    I just got the word today, a nasty phone call to be honest,,, Buzz is going to have to cancel her trip, issues at work are preventing it from happening, and I feel so bad for her and her family, we were really looking forward to meeting them, too, so you better now cancel too!

    Be safe driving, we will do the same, until Disney,,,
    later.

    Following along from a couple hours north of you. Think where the index finger meets the palm on the mitten. LOL

    Hope your semester of student teaching goes well. It's been years since I did my student teaching but I remember it fondly.

    The thought of a needle into my foot makes me want to curl into a ball in the corner so I hope it helped. Quick healing vibes for your son, also.
