Weekly Wrap Up

Just a short wrap up for the week:  I worked. A lot. I mean, a lot, a lot.

Healthwise,  I'm doing much better!!  I'm still not 100%, but today marks the end of 5 weeks of illness--35 days that I've been sick, so I am happy to be able to breathe without a great deal of pain.

The Dancing Queen's infection is doing better, the antibiotic seems to be working (all viral negative), and only one other nose bleed that I am aware of.  Unfortunately, we learned some pretty hard news yesterday regarding our little girl. I'm not ready to think about the implications regarding it yet, but suffice to say, she has a new diagnosis, a new set of doctors, and . . .

I guess the good thing about this new diagnosis is that I'm not overly worrying about it. I'm not in a tailspin. Emotionally, I'm doing very well. That is good. Evidently, progress has been made. Yay, Me! I'd give up all of my emotional stability though if it meant my baby wouldn't need to suffer any more. I guess we can't have everything in life.

Don't think I'm going to leave you with a sad post. Here is the best part of it all: I get a surprise date night tonight. Yippy! The Mad Scientist and I are going to a Vietnamese restaurant we've been wanting to try for a year now. Who knows. We may even adventure out further. Maybe see a movie in the theater that is not kid related. Are there such things? Perhaps coffee and cards? Ice cream and a stroll? The possibilities are endless and so exciting! I think I'll end now to start my date.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. What are your plans?

  1. I SO hope you two have a fantastic time on your date!! Whee! Jealous!
    Hubby is working all weekends, so my big plans are sitting home with the kids. Woot!


Having a child with a CHD is like being given an extra sense---the true ability to appreciate life. Each breath, each hug, each meal is a blessing when you've watched your child live off a ventilator, trapped in an ICU bed, being fed through a tube. Each minute is a miracle when you've watched your child almost die and come back to you.
