Another doctor appointment

March 24th, 2010

Man, I’m beat.

I took the girls to a puppet show this morning at our library. I figured, why not? It was something different and it would be something fun before Ella’s annual hematology appointment.

But then after we were at the hospital for an hour and 1/2 and they had not even taken her blood yet, I realized I had overdone it. We were all tired. And very hungry. But as always, they always put things in perspective there. The nurse said she was working on some other kid’s chemo while we were waiting … and that would be a million times harder than what we’re there to do.

Anyway, Ella’s thriving and healthy, but she sat on my lap and cried, as any kid would, as they took her blood. It is sad to watch, but easier than when she was really young and people had to hold her down.

So, I promised her McDonalds after and a movie at home. And Eva is napping. And my house is a mess. And I really need to do some work. Hubby has been out of town for a few days again and I think it’s all caught up with me.

OK, not sure why I even wrote that post. Maybe because I’m too braindead to do much else!
