We interrupt this blog to bring you... LIFE.
Man, life has been keeping us hopping for quite a while now. And it has seriously cut into my blogging!!
We could probably go back to last FALL... but I'll spare you all those details.
If you just go to February... Sweets broke her elbow, then she was sick for a week with a low grade fever and sinus stuff, then we took her back to the doctor a week later because her throat was red and her tonsils were swollen and she was still coughing. They still did not treat her. Then we picked my parents up from the airport. We celebrated her birthday - about 5 times total including a sleepover party. We took my parents back to the airport. The following week, she spiked a fever that read 105 on the head thermometer. It was 103 by the mouth thermometer. She had a fever of 101 or so for a good five days along with coughing and lots of snot. Of course, we could not get into her regular doctor so she ended up at urgent care where they said she had the flu and a sinus infection that has been around a while. I also caught that lovely ick and was had a fever of 101 for 3-4 days. It's been awhile since I had a fever like that. This was all during report card testing time. The next week we parent teacher conferences and so I was working late. J worked overtime the entire month of March so he pretty much came home, logged onto the computer, and worked until around 11pm each night. My access to the computer was seriously limited.
I've left out the parts about how I was supposed to go to Washington D.C. with JDRF for Government Day but had to cancel due to having used most of my days taking care of Sweets and taking her to her appointments. I hated to do it because I so totally believe in JDRF Advocacy. But I knew our chapter was in good hands and I do have responsibility to my kids at school! Then, I also had to back out of a JDRF Promise meeting AND the day of filming we were doing with a JDRF film crew because we all had the flu. We'd been working on setting this all up for MONTHS. And we had the flu.
Yeah, it's been that kind of winter.
I know I'm not alone, though. Pretty much everyone here is sick. The ick seems to be going around and around and around...
And life just HAPPENS, you know?
So that's where I've been! Unable to get to the computer and too busy taking care of a sick kid and my own sick self to hardly notice!
It's not all germs and allergies, though... Last week was our Spring Break and we spent that in Florida with my parents! And it was wonderful! We hope the warm air and sea breezes killed all the germs we've been carrying around - and that our house aired out, too!
Anyway... I'm back! Ready for Easter and the last quarter of the school year! Ready for Spring and increased activity and wonky numbers as a result! Ready for another arm draw and labs and a trip to the Endo. And ready to blog it all out!
I hope you're ready, too!
ps... Some people reported problems with the last post about not being able to read everything. After looking into it (because I've always been able to see it all), I found that Blogger does not support Internet Explorer anymore. So, if you use IE as your browser, you might have problems. Try using Google Chrome or Firefox and see if that helps... And thanks for your patience and understanding!
