Still alive

Yes, I am still alive. Alex has been gone 10 days so far. I think my threshold is about 7 days. Day 8, I start to go a bit batty. Getting the girls' colds doesn't help either. Luckily, he gets home tomorrow night. Late but still I'll be able to maybe take a 10 minute shower instead of 3 on Sun.

Emma's school sent home a note yesterday afternoon saying Pertussis (whooping cough) is going around school. Of course I cancelled the girls' vaccinations YESTERDAY morning b/c they both have colds. And of course the shot Emma was supposed to get was the DTaP, which prevents whooping cough. So we went in today at 8 am, ug, for Emma to get a 12 inch rod shoved up her nose for the test. Poor girl was not happy. And this was all after waking up to a crib full of vomit. Nora had gotten sick during the night and rolled all over. Nice. Luckily, Grandma took Emma for the day so I could rest when Nora took a nap. :)

After dropping Emma off w/Grandma, Nora had a hearing test at 9:45. She did great and turned for most of the sounds. She was such a trooper. Unfortunately, she didn't pass b/c she wasn't responding to the low tones and really quiet sounds. We'll have to do a sedated hearing test when she is under anesthesia for her MRI in Feb. But when we got home, she took a nice 3 hour nap. Ahhhhhh...

Nora has her Autism eval on Monday so hopefully we'll get some feedback from that. And then Emma has her dance class holiday party on Tues. and we leave for Albany on Wed. Yikes. Hope the snow stops for us to fly.

See some of you soon. Happy Holidays!!!!

Next time you're alone for that long, give us a call, we'll come over for an afternoon and let you take off for a few hours if you want! But only a few hours.... ;)
