Our life is pretty busy right now with the Christmas Holidays, a looming 11th Birthday and lots and lots of doctors appointments. Christmas will be past this weekend and the lovely summer-like weather outside leaves us feeling more like Christmas in July than December. There definitely will not be a White Christmas for those of us in Georgetown, SC this year!
Next Wednesday, my handsome son is turning 11! It’s been a fight just to keep his day free of doctors appointments for his sister but Momma has been insistant that they leave my boy’s big day free and clear for him alone. It’s so easy to get lost in the shuffle when two of your sisters have health issues. I have always tried to make sure that his day is special, especially when Christmas also steals so much from it, too. So this year we will be having his party on his big day complete with a sleepover with all our good friends. And we can’t wait!!
As for the doctors visits, my sweet Emmalee is keeping us busy, not with seizures this time but instead with her toe walking. Her doctor is sending us for a quick MRI of her spine to be sure it isn’t tethered causing her to toe walk. Then back to her office on Thursday for a full physical and hopefully the results of the MRI which I pray are negative. After the first of the year, depending on the results of the MRI, we will have more appointments with more doctors to repair whatever is going on with my beautiful girl. It promises to be a busy New Year for us in 2012.
So we will definitely be busy this coming year with school and doctors and simply loving life together. Bring it on, 2012… we impatiently await your arrival with cheer!!
