Hi, Marie! We have all been kinda quiet lately. It's been hectic for me, but here's to having a less busy June and us all being more chatty this time around.

As for what's going on for the month, we are reorganizing the basement, and I'm in the process of also moving my scrap area to. It looks like it's going to be another hot & humid summer, so I'm sure we'll be spending lots of time in the basement keeping cool.

Our weather has been gorgeous the past week, not too many bugs or wind-unnatural for us lol!

Nolan's preschool grad is the 12th, Elizabeth's is the 14th, then we're heading to the ILs to camp for a week for Father's day

Enjoy that gorgeous weather. We are also having some nice days, and I'm outside as much as possible. I'm so afraid we're going to end up with another miserable hot & humid summer again. Last week we were 90s with heat index in the 100s. yuck!!

So, when does everyone's LO get out of school for the summer? I know Marie has a fabulous trip planned, does anyone else have plans?

Hi ladies! We have no summer plans. Katie had a well child visit yesterday and she is totally average physically. She is 3 feet tall and 30 lbs. Of course, she sang her name, the ABCs and counted to 20 for the people working in the office so I got to be the proud mommy. I love her anyway but when people ooh and aah over her, I just feel like we are doing something right.
The weather is flip flopping here. We go from quite warm to needing a light sweater.

Marie... I saw what's going on with Nolan on fb. I hope they work out what is happening with him. Did he start to have problems suddenly or is this something you've been wondering about and a planned thing to have him assessed etc? You must be exhausted. I hope you are all okay.

I'm sorry, must have been so scary for you (and I'm sure still is). I'm glad to see he looks pretty happy in the hospital with all the toys and games. thinking of you all.

It looks like we might be discharged from the Stollery tomorrow then pack the trailer and home on Wednesday. Fingers crossed!
Looks like Nolan has a connective tissue disorder, something looking like scleroderma which would be very bad, but we'll get firm results from bx within two days. He's been on steroids since Friday and is nearly back to normal, will need lots of pt and ot once home, and monthly visits to Edm for a very long time, with the goal to use steroids and methotrexate to get him into and keep him in remission for life. Life is never simple, is it?Home soon!
Marie

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers ladies. There is nothing worse in the world than thinking your child might die, which is what we thought three days ago. We have the best people taking care of him, he's seen so many different specialists. His heart, lungs and kidneys are fine, which isn't usually the case with these kids, his disease was caught in months, not years. Thank you for your support

Marie. I'm glad you're all getting to go home and that his heart, lung and kidneys are fine. I don't really know what else to say but thinking of you.

Marie~ Thinking of you and hoping Nolan is feeling better. Also hoping it is something that can be easily taken care of and not scleroderma

(((hugs))) Marie, I've not been online here or FB much lately, so I missed the Nolan news. I'm glad he's home now. I can't even imagine the stress you've been under.

(((Hugs))) Marie. When will you have the final results, or do you have them? Is it scleroderma?


Happy Friday ladies! Any plans for the weekend?

Hi ladies! How's everyone doing? We had an issue on Saturday where my dipe bag (which doesn't look like a typical dipe bag) was stolen from our shopping cart. It thankfully was found, tossed in another section of the store, and returned to us the next morning. Thankfully my wallet & cell phone were at the bottom and whoever took it didn't check that far beyond the dipes, toys, snacks, clothes, etc for Mark. A pain though. We had automatically canceled the credit card/debit card and put a block on the cell phone. Not exactly how I wanted to spend Father's Day weekend.

Marie - any news yet? I hate waiting for results and for doctors to call back. ((Hugs))
