Well, it was almost a great week . Since coming home from the Hospital , Teresa was doing great . She returned to school for two hours a day , returned to ballet class and was feeling really well ...until this evening . It started with her saying she was cold ( a big red flag , because she is never cold unless she is getting a fever ) . Sure enough two hours later a 101 fever . Her breathing also became much more labored . Praying this is not anything serious .
Last week was such a busy week . It seemed like everything was falling apart in the house at the same time . Leaks , floods and a huge mess ... but we were not going to be discouraged. Too many happy events were happening to stay focused on that other stuff . Grace celebrated her Confirmation , Mary and Lucy enjoyed some special time with Dad at the Father /Daughter Dance at School and Teresa discovered that she loved shooting a bow and arrow like Brave . Teresa also decided that she was not going to buy shoes anymore at Payless because they did not have a big enough selection of fabulous sparkly shoes . The only store she wants to shop for shoes at now is the Disney Store because almost all the shoes there are princess sparkly shoes .
Lucy's surgery for next week was canceled ( she was to have her cleft palate repaired with a bone graft from her hip ) . The transplant team felt it would not be a good idea to take Teresa off the list for 4 days while I was in the hospital with Lucy. ( just in case she had a perfect heart offer we did not want to miss it ) Since I can not be in two hospitals 2 1/2 hours apart at the same time , we all agreed to postpone Lucy's surgery a few months.
Gemma also had a Ferriscan of her heart and liver last week . For the past two years her iron levels have been dangerously high ( from receiving blood transfusions for 6 years every three weeks , the excess iron accumulates in the liver and heart ) . She will have her blood transfusion tomorrow and we are praying her results from the scan are much lower than last years results.
