catching up

It’s Friday.  The sun is shining!  And today is my mother’s 70th birthday, so we’re having a party.  It’s going to be a great day!!  :)

Some updates on odds and ends for you:

*We saw the doctor about Tori’s shoulder.  He’s a bit concerned about some issues and scheduled her for an MRI.  That was done early this morning.  Hopefully we’ll have results on Monday some time.  In the meantime, she’s on the rest/ice/aleve regime until further notice.  I think that might hurt as much as the shoulder does…giving up even a part of her senior season is painful.

*I emailed our nursing care coordinator at the Craniofacial Clinic and shared my concerns about Logan’s possible developmental delays.  She immediately replied that it was, in fact, an area of concern and that she would bring it up with his team the following Monday.  They clearly decided it needed some further investigation, because yesterday I got a call from the Neurodevelopmental Clinic with a referral and a request to schedule an appointment.  It’s on my list of things to do today.  Maybe, just maybe, we’ll have some answers.

*I went yesterday to the hospital to see my friend Ann and her daughter Katie.  What fun!  It was so great to have a chance to sit and visit.  I got to visit with both of them for about an hour, then Katie was not feeling well and ready for a nap, so Ann and I went out to the lobby for a bit.  With such busy lives, I rarely get a chance to catch up with her.  This is NOT how either of us would choose to do it, for sure, but it was very nice to be able to sit and talk.  Usually our catch-up time is taken in bits and pieces while we work in the concessions stand at basketball…this was a treat.  And such good news!  Katie will hopefully be released on Sunday.  She’s feeling well for the most part (dealing with headaches from the meds) and her labs and other tests show that she’s exactly where the doctors want her.  Every day they see evidence of God’s hand on all this, from the hospital to the doctor to the diagnosis and treatment.  Will you pray with me for Katie?  I know that she and her whole family would appreciate it.  This is Kate:

Isn’t she just gorgeous?  She’s so much more beautiful on the inside than she is on the outside…an incredibly amazing young lady.  It’s a real privilege to know her and her family. 

I think that’s it.  I’m off to the kitchen to prep for tonight’s birthday dinner.  Enjoy your Friday!

  1. Katie is beautiful - and yes, I'm already praying for her. I'm glad she is responding well to her treatment so far. Great news that you got a referral so quickly for Logan!
