This is Tim's x-ray of his arm. It has hardly healed in 6 weeks. You can see the cloudy part around the break. That is new bone and we are very grateful for it! It means he doesn't have to have surgery. He took Reece into the appointment with him for a field trip to learn about bones and doctors. Homeschool is so fun.
The boys attached two passies together for Lake and thought it was so funny. Reece wanted me to get a picture. Lake's birthday is around the corner. I don't know what he likes besides passies and it is almost time for them to get taken away so I am not sure what kind of party to throw him. I thought of having a passy party with pictures of passies, passies on the cake, and passies as gifts.. That would be his dream-party. I don't know, we will see.
We left for mom's last Friday. We were set to fly out on Saturday to NYC for my appt. I was very nervous about leaving the boys, flying, seeing the doctor, etc. And, because I had been off antibiotics for a while, my symptoms were getting worse every day.
Saturday at 1:30 am, Bubba woke up with croup. I was afraid of that because Lake had it a couple days before. If you don't know what croup is, say a thankful prayer right now. It is staring into your child's terrified eyes as they can't breathe in or out because their little airways are closed off due to a weird response to a cold. ALL 3 of my boys get it.
So, we were up with him giving him steroids and breathing treatments and calling Delta trying to reschedule our flight. They said it would be $1,000 to leave on Sunday instead of Saturday. Our flight was at 10 am. I was so overwhelmed and tired that I kind of just checked out. I couldn't take so much crisis and stress.
The next morning, I told Tim to go work his cuteness with the girl at the Delta counter (I was desperate) and get us switched until Sunday. He did and it worked! We didn't have to pay anything. What a miracle and a blessing. I went back to mom's and slept, and slept, and slept.
We left on Sunday morning. After being on antibiotics for all these years, I get crazy motion-sickness. So, by the time we rode 2 planes, a train and the subway to get to our hotel, I was looking for the barf bag and wanting to lay down with the homeless people on the street.
I would highly recommend this hotel! We got a great deal through Hotwire. It right by Central Park and has a Starbucks in the bottom.
We went to this place for brunch Monday morning. It was cute and dainty but we only give it a 6 out of 10 because the food was just good- not great. Tim cracks me up in these girly restaurants. He just seems a little lost. ;)
I am so happy Esprit is making a come back. I remember my first very own esprit outfit for my 7th grade cheerleading tryouts. It was a red shirt that said esprit in white with red and white striped shorts. I looked like a million bucks (but not good enough for this uncoordinated girl to make the squad!). I wore that outfit all the time.
It was almost time for my dr's appt. Tim hailed a cab and took me across the city to the cupcake place I was dying to go to.
(My love affair with sugar must come to a sad end as I enter back into the world of juiced spinach, beets, and salads.)
Once again, Tim in a girly place cracks me up.
It is just very wrong somehow but adorable that he goes to make me smile.
Psalm 23 really spoke to me too...
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD
