Keeps the Apples Away!
Whew ... it has been a week, and then some. We have been in hospitals and doctors' office solid for a week. Fortunately, we haven't been actually hospitalized in the process.
We are still in a bit of limbo as to the condition of our little Thing 2, but after meeting with a specialist yesterday, my anxiety has been reduced dramatically. It looks like a long recovery ahead of her, but we are sooooooo grateful for the prospect of recovery.
Anyhow, the week has basically gone like this ...
From having a fever and feeling crummy last Wednesday and Thursday:
To a flu diagnosis on Friday:
To a strep diagnosis on Saturday:
To "We have NO idea" from the ER on Sunday:
To "Let's wait for more lab work on Monday":
To more labs, doctor visits, and mild bursts of energy throughout the rest of the week!
I just need to say thanks to all the prayers that have been sent our way and to the great help given by our family, friends and neighbors. It's been chaotic, and it probably will be for a bit longer, but we are so blessed to have so many good people in our lives to help along the way.
One thing I am learning through this process is that I need to take a class on dealing with stressful situations ... I am already anxiety-prone, so when you add stress - I am a basket case!!!
I have also learned that I have an amazing daughter who can take on life's challenges with sweetness and grace ... oh wait ... I already knew that!
So now, the waiting game.
Bless her heart!
