My dad called tonight. Seems the x-rays were WAY off on the size of the aneurism…..The scan today showed it to be exactly the same size it was in September. NO SURGERY!!!!! At least not for now….YIPPEEEEE!! He sounded SO happy, and his mood was infectious. What a relief. They will keep a close eye on him for the next six months, then do another scan, unless something happens before then that indicates they need to take immediate action. I just can’t get over what a difference a day can make in my emotions.
Another kid down…..Got the call from preschool this afternoon to come pick up Grace. She wasn’t feeling well….still dealing with boo-boo tummy, and was running a low grade fever. Can this really be happening? It’s my turn to stay home tomorrow with her. Ethan’s finally back on his feet, and Ryley’s holding his own. Doc said to put Grace on a liquid diet for a day or so, then slowly reintroduce food, starting with the blands and working our way back up. Yeah right. Oh, and no milk, cheese or dairy for at least 48 hours. HAH!! They don’t know Grace very well…….that’s like stopping a roaring freight train with a feather. She’d live on milk and yogurt alone if I let her! Poor kid. This should be interesting.
On a decent note, my boss is letting get access to our work server from home. How is that good you might ask? Well, it will let me get some work done when and if I have to stay home with sick kids. My kids have given me a run for the past year since I started this job…I think I’ve taken 6 or 7 full days and a couple partial days here and there for one kid or another being sick. UGH! Now I can stay home, and get some work done. Less guilt that way.
Hoping and praying everyone’s sick kiddos are on the mend soon. What is up with this winter and illnesses?
