Quick little update to my ranting last week!
Praise God and thank you for your prayers!! Calli is improving hugely on the antibiotics!
We even had to go back to the doctors on Friday! Turns out she DID have strep also, even though she tested negative. Has her mama's genes apparently ;( And I needed to get that documented in her chart. One look in that kids' throat and there was NO doubt! Anyway, she is getting soooo much better!!! Hallelujah!!
Her stomach issues are still there, just not as severe. We have to wait until the end of June (they were completely booked and we're on the cancellation list to get in sooner) to retest to see if the H pylori is gone, or whether they need to do another round.
In the meantime, we just want to get her healthy and her poor little immune system beefed up!!
She made it to the last three days of school, first day back she was still feeling pretty yucky, but she pushed through it and was able to be there the entire day. She had to take some tests she missed, and is freaked out that she missed two questions that she just didn't know. I told her dont worry about it baby!!! We're all just happy she made it back - and so is her teacher!!
So school is officially out for the year!
It has been about 40* and raining here for the last week, off and on. Doesn't feel much like summer yet! LOL!
I'm heading out to a women's conference this afternoon, for the weekend. A friend invited me to go with her. I was a little hesitant... as I won't know anyone, and I know I will feel really awkward! But, trying to force myself out of my own simple comfort zone, as I know it will bring me closer to God. And boy oh boy does my attitude need some work! Being stuck at home with Calli for the majority of the last several months, I have a bad case of cabin fever, and probably what some would call a bad case of the mommy overloads!
LOL My 14 year old son told me last night he thinks getting away will be "good for you mom" !
:D What a wise young man he is! :D
So... i'm off to pack. No clue what to wear, or what to pack. No clue if I will be able to overcome my shyness around all these people I don't know? Gotta tell ya... there is a sense of dread, and resistance. What a weenie, right? But there is also excitement, and looking forward to stepping out of the boat and trying!
The first night they are doing a "Let's Make a Deal" purse game.... ugh... what in the world do i need to put in my purse??!! Anyone?? Ideas? Help!?
