Look out, 2 months in a row! There isn’t a lot to tell which is good news.
Taylor did well with his oral surgery. That Friday, the day of surgery, he laid around and ate and drank very little. Saturday he felt fine, but was running fever. I really think the fever was from everything going on. He had pnuemonia, stomach bug and surgery all in one week and I think his body just couldn’t take it all. He was very sad becaue he wanted to to go the Galleria to a football/baseball card show. That boy loves cards more than anything! By afternoon he was feeling good and fever free. He couldn’t be real active after surgery, so he went out to swing. I think he was glad just to be outside.
Sunday Jim took the boys to the card show. THey had a ball. Guh and I went shopping. We got some Christmas gifts purchased for the boys and some window shopping.
When we all got back home we found that Ernie and Bernie, our elves had returned from the North Pole. They were riding the train around the tree.
Taylor went back to school that week and luckily was feeling much better. He took a few days to be able to really eat well, but that was to be expected after having 5 teeth pulled.
We opted to not keep him on the Vyvance (ADD). It did help him slightly, but the improvement was not enough to justify the side effects. He lost 10 pounds in the 3 weeks he was on it, he was not sleeping, he was so blah and not himself. We would rather study extra hard than see him be that way. He was off the meds about a week and he started eating and goofing off like his old self.
Thanksgiving week the boys had 2 days of school and then had a break. We went shopping and out to lunch with Guh on day one of our break. Then the boys spent the day outside playing. We had THanksgiving dinner at Gam maw and Paw Paw’s. The boys spent the night with Paw Paw, so that I could shop and Jim had to work. Gam maw, Ghen Ghen and I left around 7:30 pm and didn’t stop shopping till 6:00 am! How about that for an all nighter. The good news is, I have about 5 gifts left and I am done.
We Went to the Iron bowl and had fun though our Auburn Tigers didn’t do so well. That is ok, Taylor had a blast. He met Bo Jackson! He has now met and taken a pic with all 3 Auburn Heisman winners. Yes, he thinks he is the stuff! That boy loves football and was so excited! We left the game early beacuse he was complaining of an ear ache. Oh boy, not more sickness!!!!
We had Sunday lunch at my moms for Thanksgiving. No complaints of feeling bad at all. Shewww…..
MOnday I get an email from MRs. Hyche that Taylor has an ear ache. I told her to call me if it continues. Not anohter word??? period???? I have no idea what made his ear hurt, but it stopped and he has been fine. He seemed really yucky Thursday on the bus, but I really think he was car sick. I twas a little hot that afternoon, he can’t really see over the bus seats and I think he gets puney. Once we got off and in the air and got a cool drink he was fine. We have finally picked back up in guitar. He missed so much being sick and the holiday. We are in a lull with it. He wants to quit and I really don’t want him to. He is doing well, but isn’t really willing to put in the work. I think he will love it when he gets it, but we have to get there.
Friday at last! Logan said his throat hurt this morning, but never called from school, so I forgot all about it. He looked puney when we got on the bus. He felt hot! He said he sat out in PE cause he was so tired. I knew he was sick and I knew he had purposfuly not told anyone becaue he is so scared of going to the Dr. Sure enough, when we got home he had a 101 temp. We went to the Dr. that afternoon. He slept the hour wait, yes, hour wait!!! We finally got in triage and she took his temp and he puked all over the place. OOPS!!!! I knew then he had strep! He did!!! It is amazing what 24 hrs and antibiotics can do for strep, he was good as new by Saturday morning.
WE had the first of several Christmas parties. It was a swim party, how bout that! They loved it! We wended the weekend with the Camp SAM party. Bitter sweet day!!!! We saw many of our cancer family members. Always good to see them and to see how well they all are doing. Its good to see Drs and nurses in plain clothes not scrubs. it is always a very fun day. Today we said goodbye to Lynn, the director of 23 yrs! She was a fabulous lady who will be missed. We met the new driector who seemed very nice and genuine and an Auburn fan:) Camp will continue and will grow, but Lymm will be missed. We love you Momma Lynn!!!!!
So, we have had a good month. We have lots of fun coming up! We have started basket ball practice. Taylor loves it. Logan will pick up baseball again in the coming weeks. We leave for Disney in 12 days! Then of course Christmas. The next update should be packed and hopefully soon:)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!
