Thirteen things on my mind..

Thursday, February 1st, 2007

1. Izzy’s dr. appt. today. It was a consultation for botox injections. He has ordered other tests on her hips and I am just trying to stay strong, upbeat, and know God can heal anything. I have had several moments today where I felt I could burst into tears, but kept myself in check…

2. Australians are coming in February. I have things to do to prepare for them and make sure money is appropriated for this. I need to plan a trip to Ponca City to help get ready for their arrival if the weather permits.

3. Speaking of Ponca… I need to get more hbot for Iz. There have been so many reasons to keep us away from bad weather to dying grandmothers… I know it is beneficial and really want to make it back up there soon.

4. I am still working on approval for Tefra. I spent time on the phone with the clinical psychologist yesterday to do the third round of tests, hopefully this is the one that will satisfy the hca and we can move forward… which brings me to…

5. Izzy’s teeth are worse everyday! I am so ready to get them fixed and move on. I am hoping that it all goes smoothly and that she comes through it well.

6. I have to try to create some kind of wedge for Izzy’s hip abductors because she is apparently having problems in her left hip. She tends to scissor her legs and it is causing problems. We made something tonight, but am not sure if it is going to be right.

7. Izzy needs to wear her foot stretching splints more and she hates hates hates them. I am torn between making her miserable for her feet’s sake and giving her a break because, well, anyway…

8. On to a different subject because I’m getting upset so the next thought is I hope we have school tomorrow because I really think the kids need to go to school and the roads aren’t that bad…

9. I saw about eight wrecks going to Bethany today.

10. I had a bad dream last night. It was really eerie, and I woke up for most of the night. Matt had a sermon playing so I listened to that and prayed trying to sleep. Bad cramps also kept me awake…

11. Bailey’s birthday is in a few days. He’ll be 13. I think his friend who moved to Duncan 8 months ago is staying the weekend. I hope he gets to come because Bailey has missed him and he is bringing his wii. I told them I would take them somewhere cool like laser tag or something.

12. I need to get something for Bailey to open on his birthday. His main birthday present was things to make his room a teenage room rather than a little boy room. We did that over the snow days and then ordered his letter jacket from mojo sports, but I need to get him a fun present too.

13. Matt’s family was coming this weekend, but Paula is in Omaha and Jane Ellen is in Key West so I think it is going to be on the 17th. Jane Ann’s birthday is two days before Bailey so they celebrate together and Jane Ellens is april 3. Marmar’s would have been around that time too, she would have turned 93. She was 80 years older than bailey.
