This week was full of fun, adventure, and lots of fun. It was insanely busy, which can be attested by my Foursquare check-ins. It was worth the insanity, I think.

Sunday, Josh and Ethan went to the Boy Scout Day at the Zoo or something (so those pictures were taken by him) and Madi and I went to a local fruit farm with the Girl Scouts.

The Blogging World

Every day, something new is posted, some piece of vital information. Yes, it happens more than just every day, but it definitely always happens each day.

Yesterday, some very sad news hit the blogging world. A great blogger, mother, daughter, wife, is losing her battle with cancer, and is now at home, with her family, for her last moments. I do not know Lisa personally, but I have been reading her blog.

There are no words that will make her fight any easier, no words to take away the pain of knowing that she’ll be leaving her family behind as she takes those final steps in life. There is nothing no one could say or do to make things better, but we can try. If you can do nothing more than spread the word, so that her and her family are surrounded by good thoughts and prayers, I think that would be most comforting. Maybe surrounding the doctors and scientists with inspirational thoughts, to see if they can find a cure.

Now, excuse me while I go and cuddle with my little boy and cry a little. Well, more than a little.

Lisa, you don’t know me, and I don’t know you, but I pray that you are constantly surrounded by love and family for the rest of your moments on this Earth, and beyond.

Making doctors appointments

I’m so not a fan of making phone calls. I have a tendency to babble because I’m nervous. I’ve got a semi-fear of the phone. If I know who I’m talking to, I’m just fine, and I can jabber on for hours. Anything else, and I’m a shaking, quivering mess. So, right now, I’m a shaking, quivering mess because my nerves are shot.

But, the good news is that Ethan is now officially transfered to Dr. Pridgett, at Pediatric Associates, in Topeka, KS. Madison has an appointment in July, for her 5 year check-up, since we’ll be out of town in June for her birthday. Ethan has one 3 days after his third birthday, for his third year check-up. He missed his second year, as did Madi with her 3rd and 4th year, because Medicaid kept screwing with their coverage and their doctors.

Now, I’m waiting on a call back from an gynecologist that’s come highly recommended for me to see, since I’m nervous with doctors. She’s supposed to absolutely be amazing. My sister-in-law saw her until she (SIL) switched insurance providers. My mother-in-law saw her before she passed. My friend, Kristen, has seen her through 3 pregnancies, and 3 cesareans. I should be hearing back sometime tomorrow, since the phones are closed at this point.
