Halloween Sneaky Peaky

I'm still working on art. Here's a photo to prove it.

I am working on art, seriously, no don't laugh....okay, laugh. I sure could use a laugh. Life is just a little chaotic these days. Who knew 4th grade would be filled with so much homework. I am finding that many nights Sloan isn't making it to bed until 9 due to all of the assignments she has. The good news is that we are getting her into a little homework routine.

Crazy #2 is that Sloan is still feeling terrible. She will have a good three weeks of feeling relatively okay and then a week or two of throbbing joints and headache, sore throat and ringing in her ears. This week has been one of those weeks. It is seriously draining. I feel so very helpless not knowing what's really going on with her. I took her to the Dr. on Friday and I was so relieved when they saw actual swelling in her hands. That may sound crazy, but my hope is that through this newest set of blood work, we might get some answers. I'm starting to feel like that mom. You know the one that is always bringing their child to the Dr. because they aren't feeling well, then no one can find anything wrong with her. Only something is wrong with my little girl. It just breaks my heart. Nothing feels worse than not knowing how you can help your child.

So you will have to forgive me if my posts are a little sporadic or it takes me a little longer to get back to you and say hello. Please know I am just trying to focus on my little family. Gotta get my little girl well. Please know I'm not trying to write a sympathy post here. I know you all wanted to be kept posted on Sloans' health. Promise to let you know when we find out more.

Hope everyone is having a fun weekend. Promise I'll check in real soon. Hugs to you all-Summie
