We have been debating whether or not to send Teresa to pre school next year . we have been advised both ways , one Doctor said "Let her experience everything and don't keep her in a bubble " another said " I would advise against exposing her to all of the germs that are in pre school class rooms. " She watches every day as her sisters go to school and often asks " When can I go to school ?"
Pre school registration for September is taking place now so we have to make a decision soon . I don't want to expose her to viruses unnecessarily but at the same time I want her to experience the same things other children do .
So today we went and visited a pre school class . She was so excited that's all she talked about all day . "Her school" was so much fun . She couldn't wait to get home to tell Gemma all about it . Seeing how excited she was made the decision so much easier . Now the hard part is having her wait 8 months for it to start . As we drove to school this afternoon to pick up the girls she started yelling "There's my school , there's my school. Can i go again ?"
Lucy - I think I spoke too soon on Saturday about Lucy and how she was doing from her surgery . Saturday night she started having severe bladder pain and the pain was radiating to her kidney , she then started vomiting . After speaking to her Doctor he wanted her brought to the ER to make sure she did not have an infection or blocked ureter . After many tests it was discovered that the surgery had caused severe swelling in her bladder and kidney and this was the cause of the pain . So they increased her pain meds. and antibiotics and we are keeping a close watch on her .
Gemma- still no results from her ferrascan . But poor Gemmma has another infection . She started on Saturday night with a very high fever . She is also coughing terribly . I took her to the doctor today and she has pneumonia and a ear infection . She is scheduled for her blood transfusion next Wed. .The last time she was this sick her Hemoglobin dropped one point every day . Infections and fevers really make it drop fast . So we are keeping a close eye on her levels .
Teresa - was so happy today going to school . She loves to experience new things and this was so much fun for her . Unfortunately she must have sneezed over 100 times today and her nose has started to run . We are praying that she is not getting sick or catching Gemma's virus .
Thank you for keeping her in your prayers !
