Time seems to be slipping away from me these days. January is just about over and I have no idea where the time went. This was the month in review:
“Joba go blow your nose” “Jim, can you take Mattie to the Dr today” “What was her temp” “We need more medicine” “Do you think he needs a breathing treatment” “Joba has a fever again” “It was just a matter of time before we got sick” “Mattie needs to go to the doctor again” “Joba, go get a Kleenex” “Can someone wipe Mattie’s nose?” “Cover your mouth when you cough” “I need to cancel therapy this week, Mattie is sick AGAIN” “Jim, Joba just puked” “I am done, over it, quit”
Seriously, someone has been sick everyday this month and usually it is more than one person in this house. I have cleaned, disinfected, sanitized, aired out, and washed everything a million times. Yet we somehow manage to keep passing it to each other. Just when I thought we were all on the mend, I end up sick AGAIN this week and Joba started running a fever AGAIN tonight. It is starting to get ridiculous.
Luckily, Mattie is (crossing fingers) not sick at the moment especially since her eye surgery is scheduled for tomorrow at 8:45am. Dr. G will be doing strabismus surgery to correct her slight cross eyes. She will be outpatient at All Children’s Hospital.
I promise to post again this week on Mattie’s surgery, the outcome, and the amazing language/signing skills that have developed this month. Until then, please keep her in your prayers and positive thoughts.
With Love and Hope,
