As most of you know our Danielle had a stay at Strong Hospital...you could never tell by looking at her now! She needed to have appendicitis ruled out, and ended up with a nasty pneumonia, oxygen needed, high fever and all of that fun that comes with it. She was a trooper though. Daddy was out of town, and I am so thankful for all the help I got from people with juggling my crazy life:)
We've started our Christmas decorating, but no tree yet....I'm building up the courage.
Simon is healthy other than the ongoing journey of trying to keep his GI system in balance....I wish I had a magic window into his intestines. His mood can be directly related to his "belly comfort" and it is such a fine line to keep him....shall we say "just right". I hope someday we will master this skill for our guy. He has a new fascinating hobby of balancing all of his toys on the corner of anything he can find....4 animals on the 4 corners of his bed, 4 cars on the 4 corners of the table etc etc....quite cute. He has been showing us a bit of...hmmm shall we say "stong willedness" lately that we are trying to nip, but he still dishes out plenty of sweet and cute and lovable each day too.
I am happy to report that my cardiac symptoms have been much better since the week before thanksgiving...I'm feeling like a normal 33 year old woman again...almost. I'm praying that it will continue to improve, or at least hold steady.
I'm looking forward to Christmas time....Danielle's second with us now...last year was a bit overstimulating and difficult for her, so I am happy to think of how special this one should be for her. I have also been plugged into the 9p- parents network and have learned a few new things about danielle's diagnosis....knowledge is power, and that makes my feel a little more in control of our zany life....but the Big Guy in the sky knows all so I'll just try to "take a chill pill" and not be so ocd about things....(or at least I'll try!)
