Appears Sammy’s sinuses are swollen, so he’s been prescribed an antihistamine to bring that down. Also will be doing a sleep study soon to check for things like sleep apnea. But he’s obviously not sleeping well, and even fell asleep coming back from the doctor’s office.

Last night we had odd sleeping arrangements. Mika had a nightmare the night before, and Sammy’s been waking up crying the last few nights (a couple times a night). So, Sammy slept in our bed with JoAnn, and I was in Mika’s room, since she comes to me when she has nightmares. Anyway, last night […]

From me, slightly before I had my coffee:“Maybe I am imagining it…but it doesn’t mean it’s not real.”

So we began looking into refinancing the mortgage to ease the current financial strain, and prayers are being answered. So far, it looks really good–appears that we can pay off almost all other debt, cash out about $10k to be able to buy outright the vehicle for JoAnn, and end up paying almost identical to […]

So now we have the issue of JoAnn’s car, as if enough hasn’t happened recently. The thing is dying… The good news is that it isn’t apparent yet, and still does run well.Bad news is that it would cost more in repairs than the car is worth (over $4k..for the repairs, that is). The good […]

So it’s a little after noon today, and a client needs some assistance across the Narrows in Gig Harbor. I take off. Get about a mile away, and a little before the freeway (fortunately), a tire blows. At first I think it’s the one Les Schwab plugged a couple weeks ago. Get into a parking […]

No, not Joshua again….it’s Sammy’s turn. And hopefully stops there. Sammy had an appointment yesterday with a pediatric ENT specialist. The background is this: Sammy, just before his 2nd birthday, had something like a 12-word vocabulary…not great, but not bad for a boy. Around his 2nd birthday, it dropped off, almost suddenly, and he began […]

Test results good!

Joshie’s test yesterday showed no reflux back to the kidneys, so it doesn’t look like surgery will be required. (For those that don’t know, this is the main residual from the hospital time–the kidney infection side of things, that is….was a test to see if there were any structural issues or reflex in the urinary […]
