Catching Up

The past month has not gone well, a little stressful to say the least but the worst is behind us with bone marrow biopsies out of the way, results and the other little annoyances we had to deal with. 

We were so blessed to be able to spend the last week in Canada visiting my family for my niece's wedding.  It was a week that was so needed, especially for the kids.  It felt like we could actually breathe without the weight of our world resting on our shoulders.  It's funny to me how getting away can help you see things more clearly.  When you have one set back after another, it's hard to see the big picture.  The days start blending together with a hazy film of fatigue clouding them up. 

The kids did pretty well while we were gone.  Other than fatigue and some of the usual things for Shelbie, she did so well.  The boys continued to have bouts of nausea, dizziness, weakness etc. 

One incident happened while we were shopping in a store and Spencer had to sit down on the floor because he felt so sick.  I asked the clerk for the location of the restroom and they didn't have one for public use.  That is so annoying to me.  I secretly hoped Spencer would just vomit all over their clothes rack just to prove a point that they need to offer the public a restroom to use.  I just don't understand that mentality.

We are back to reality now.  School is just around the corner and we still have to make a trip to Boise for the kids to have a work up with the Gastroenterologist.  While we are there, I am going to start scouting out a Neurologist that we can use when we can't make it all the way to Seattle.

So much to do, so little time.
