|Waiting at the ENT|
It's finals this weekend for two of my classes and what am I doing? Blogging, of course! Haha. I am such a procrastinator when it comes to having to write a paper but that's how I work best. I need to focus my mind elsewhere and then something will pop up in my head and I'm ready to write. It's only a five-six page paper. Easy peasy.
Of course, I haven't posted because of school but I'll be off for a week and can hopefully catch up until my last classes begin and then I graduate this May! Whoot. Then, I'll start on some web design and graphic design classes. That will be fun!
My child has a horrific snore at night. I mean HORRIBLE. It wakes me up. She's been snoring since her brain injury but it's gotten progressively worse. I finally (I know, I am kicking myself over this) got her in to see an ENT. I thought maybe she has sinus issues (which she does) but nope, the Dr. said it's a sleep apnea. My biggest fear was that this is because of her brain injury but when he looked down her throat he saw her MASSIVE tonsils. Apparently, they're beyond kissing tonsils- they're actually laying on top of each other. Ooooohhhh. He said this is definitely a relief because this is a no-brainer that this is her trouble and they need to come out. He said he feared she was having a central sleep apnea (same fear as mine) which is harder to treat but the tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy should solve her issues. I hope so, too. I know she's not having a very good quality of sleep. I am realistic but I do hope that once her sleep issues are resolved that she'll be able to cope with her emotional roller coaster and her anger can be better controlled. We all know how poor sleep can make a bear of us! She's going to have surgery April 2nd. I'll take the rest of the week off! She'll stay in for 24 hours due to her various needs but I think it will go quite well. The trick will keep her hydrated.
Yesterday was the last day of winter ballet practice. We've had so much fun. The ballet is adapted for the kids' needs and the core of this program is to develop poise, develop gross motor skills, and friendships. Okay. I added the last part. LOL. We've had such a blast and everybody is full of life and joy. Heehee, even the moms were involved. We even wore tutus. BAM! Here are some highlights from our last day. I wanted to include everybody in the pictures but I want to be mindful of their privacy and since I don't have permission to post/share their photos, I am keeping their images limited. What great memories we had and I can't wait for the spring session. We were going to do the Spring Fling show but with Emma's upcoming surgery, we'd rather wait and just do the spring session. This fall's show is Peter Pan! CAN'T WAIT!
Oh and I bought a new lens: Canon EF 35 mm f/2. I have a lot to get used to on how to get the most out of this lens but so far? ADORE IT!!!!
|Ha! You know you're jealous of my TUTU!|
|Very hands on!|
