It’s Getting Real

Yesterday we revived a large manilla envelope in the mail that contained all of Ryan’s pre-op information. Nothing like a little light reading. It all honesty, I can’t believe we are only two months out. I know he needs the surgery and it will go fine but it is still making me extremely nervous.

Math Club

MATtHew has an affinity for math. He says it’s because the word math is in his name. Whatever it is, it comes naturally and easy for him. He spends hours studying the college algebra textbook his like-minded uncle sent him. He is participating in the middle school traveling math club team and last night secured a first place win for “mental math”. He was pretty excited and so were we.

That will wake you up!

At 11:30 last night, I thought I heard our doorbell. The dog jumped off the bed as I started hearing pounding on our front door. As I came closer to the front door, I saw police shining a light into our house from our front porch. A million things ran through my mind. They came to tell us that we had left our garage door open. Whew!  Thank goodness that was it!  I appreciate them being aware and keeping us safe. I can tell you that it took about two hours for my heart to stop racing so I could fall back asleep!

“Cold” and Flu

Yesterday, Matthew was diagnosed with Influenza A. He has 104 temp this morning so is chilling on the couch with frequent naps and lots of fluids with a side of Tamiflu. We are also in the midst of an ice storm so we all have the day off to relax and try not to catch it!
