I think life has settled back down to a nice peaceful calm again . Well, as calm as it can get with 6 girls getting ready for Christmas , only 19 days until Santa comes and 19 days until Teresa turns 5 ( and Jesus Birthday too. She thinks Jesus will turn the same age as her).
Everyone is doing so much better. Grace's eye is improving every day . We no longer are going back every other day for rechecks , she doesn't have to return for 2 weeks now. Gemma has totally recovered from her pneumonia and will go in for her blood transfusion Thursday . She always feels more energized after her transfusion . Lucy is feeling like herself again , free from all abdominal pain . Mary's cleft palate and bone graft surgery continues to look great . She absolutely loves her new nose. Emilia and Teresa are the only two who did not have any emergencies . Teresa is doing o.k. . She has tolerated her one new med. very well and will start the second one tomorrow . She was having a little difficulty keeping her O2 above 75 this weekend and required her oxygen during the day but today she seems to have bounced back to normal. Not sure what was going on .
Last night the girls were invited to The Ronald McDonald House for a Santa Workshop. They enjoyed marking cupcake pops, crafts and Christmas decorations . I was even treated to a mini massage . It felt wonderful ! It is so nice to be able to enjoy the Christmas season finally and not be worried with medical things ... well at least for a little while . Every day is a medical worry with Teresa, just never knowing what will happen from one day to the next wears you down after a while .
"Thank You ", Casey Cares Foundation for helping to add some sparkle to our day ! It was just what we needed !
