Catching my Breath

Phew. What a busy week. It's been one birthday celebration after another this week. And it's not over yet!!!! So far we have celebrated Sadie's bday 3x and we've got one more little party tomorrow. Then, thank goodness, we can move on to the next one. ;)

So it's been a busy week with lots of appointments and catching up from vacation (and the time change). First things first, CHLOE PASSED HER HEARING TEST!!! Okay, well "sort-of passed" her hearing test. Her right ear passed 2x, while she couldn't get a read on the left because Chloe was SOOOOO miserable having the little probe in her ear. She doesn't like her ears messed with at all. HOWEVER, the audiologist said that one ear passing is as good as both and there's really no reason to believe the left wouldn't pass if Chloe was cooperating. (LOL "cooperating"). Anyway, we can retest the left ear another time or be satisfied that she's hearing well in at least one ear and know that we can always get it tested later if she shows ANY signs of loss (such as problems with speech development or not orienting to noise, etc.)

We're meeting with the pedi tomorrow to discuss whether Chloe might be having seizures. Stac and I are pretty confident that's not what's going on, but emailing back and forth wasn't cutting it, and I think he wants to examine her, so we're going in on a Sunday so we can have a chance to talk. Poor guy must be exhausted!!! We (and all his other patients) are so lucky to have such a great pediatrician!

As for me, well, I'm a long LLLOOOONNNNNNGGGGG story (hee hee), but the short of it is, I'm feeling pretty good lately. Spirits are up, all things considered, and I'm not as tired as I was about a month ago. I can manage much better with the kids with my stamina being, well, there. It may not be great, but it's there. So I'm plugging along, keeping the house in order, coordinating Chloe's car, taking care of the kids, recruiting kids for my new toddler program starting in the fall, and trying to enjoy the summer before it's over. Especially since it seems like it just started. All in all, we're all hanging in there most days and even doing quite well on others.


  1. Glad things are going good for both of us. I think I may give in and just go in for a checkup. I just got paranoid that I have cancer or something and if I don't go in then it will go to far. I know, I'm wierd. Or maybe have a heart attack from this chest pain I get.

  2. Oh, and I was going to tell you. I did wonder if it was the increase in meds. But really its only been one day since the increase. So I don't think thats what it is, but I'm going to keep watching and see what happens. Nice thinking!
