Yesterday was Alex's 20th. Birthday ! We celebrated with our Chinese candle (blow torch ) we bought while in China . Alex had to move back home from Alabama a few weeks ago due to no fault of his own . Because of our financial situation we could not afford the tuition and he could not afford to graduate $ 100,000.00 in debt. He loved the school , his classes , new friends and he even joined a fraternity . He was very disappointed .
So now he is working full time saving his money and will return to Towson in the fall. It is what it is and I believe everything happens for a reason .
Alex has always been a great son . While we were in China adopting Teresa he took care of Mary , Emilia and Gemma . He cooked, cleaned, took Gemma for her blood transfusions and made sure Emilia's leg did not get infected or have any complications. He was so responsible we had complete trust in him . His goal is to be an Orthopedic Surgeon . After seeing Emilia's legs and how mangled they were when she was adopted he has decided to make this the field he will major in . I know he will make a fantastic , caring Doctor .
Lucy started not feeling well yesterday . This morning her lungs were making all kinds of snap , crackle and pop noises. She has pneumonia in her left lobe and the right middle lobe has partially collapsed. So back on antibiotics , prednisone, albuterol, flovent and Tylenol. This evening she started feeling a little bit better.
Just hoping Teresa does not get this !
So far this week Teresa is feeling great . She has had a few times during the week when her oxygen dropped below 75 and she required the use of oxygen but for the most part she is doing fantastic .
Thank you for continuing to keep her in your prayers. Your Prayers have carried her through the winter .
