A Weary Day

Little Zoe working on art. She takes it pretty seriously. This is sort of how I feel. Serious (but hopeful)

I had grand intentions for this day. However grand those intentions may be, family comes first. Today my little Sloan had two Dr. appointments, blood drawn twice, A1C test, and two immunizations. We found that her A1C levels only went up 1/2 a point. I was grateful it wasn't more. Her blood sugars have been running a little higher lately. We will have to hold off on a pump for a few more months, but a pump is the next step. I think most of the tests given and the upcoming tests to be done are for preventative measures. Her pediatrician also found a heart murmur. I have to set up an appointment with a pediatric cardiologist, oh and did I mention she also has to have an MRI to rule out any problems she has been having with her eyes? It's been a little stressful for me lately. I know Sloan is fine, and will be safe and OK. I just need to relax and breath, just for a day or two.

So I will have the shop update by this weekend. I will let everyone know as soon as I do. I also have a really exciting project that I am going to be working on for a fellow blogger. Oh and one last thing, an upcoming auction that I am participating in for a sweet little lady that I think everyone will enjoy meeting. The profits will all go straight to the family to help with their overwhelming medical costs and living expenses. You can follow her story here. If you are interested in donating something to help out with this auction, please email me and I will forward the organizers info to you.

Last but not least, this post was not meant to be a pity party. I just need to keep it real and I need to take a few days to get back in gear. Hope you all have a great Friday. Look forward to posting again this weekend. Hugs to all!

Hey Summer,

I'm sorry things have been stressful lately. And I hope Sloan is OK. It has to be hard worrying about your little girl. I couldn't even imagine.

But I do know how hard it is to relax and breath when you are stressing out about something, and waiting to know that everything will actually be OK. It is so much easier said than done. I'll be thinking of you! :o)

oooh I truly feel for you Summer. I hope all the appointments go well. I had some similar issues with Henry a couple years ago. I had him in an endocronologist's office every week...drawing blood constantly. Everyone thought he had Diabetes Insipidus. He thankfully does not! It was the most stressful year though. They also found a heart murmur...which also turned out to be completely fine and not hurtful to him. I know how difficult it is for you to go through these Dr. visits and worry about your sweet child. I'll be thinking of you guys and hoping that all will turn out fine with your little girl too!!! xoxo...jenn
