Default Heyas sorry it's been so long...

Sorry it's been awhile since I last posted. It seems that life is soo busy it's hard to know whether or not my head is attached at times.

Everything is going good right now. Gabbey has healed from her surgery and is looking great. I did just find out today though that her lymphnodes around her ears, and at the base of her neck is going to enlarge somewhat every once in awhile. To be honest it's kinda nerve racking.

Let me ask a question though...can that be part of sws? I hope not I have been paying attention to her and watching for all the different symptoms of sws. But i don't think i have ever read about this.

Okay gotta go put the kids in the tub i will try to check back in tomorrow morning.

Jeni,

I don't know about the lymph nodes enlarging.... Glenda might know and if she doesn't chime in today about it, I'll email her and ask her. Jenny might know as well. That's something I'd like to know, just for reference.

Glad Gabbey is doing well. How's (Oh, sheesh, I hope I get her name right) Ellie? Still "mothering?"

Did Gabbey have to take any time off from school, by chance? And, how soon after a laser treatment do you send her back?

Talk soon!

Missy, the curious!

Gabbey didn't miss any school. She did really good w/the entire thing. Her next treatment is December 9th i believe. The next time we go out we are going to fly out the day before like normal and fly home the day of. It's too much of a pain in the tukus to stay two nights.

Ellie is doing a little better w/the mothering thing but now lol they are both mothering me as I am sick as of late. It's too long of a story for me to explain about me on the limited amount of time that I have right now. Anyways the girls are mothering me lol which to be honest has helped Ellie w/her mothering Gabbey. I have almost gotten her to the point of not worrying about where Gabbey is every min. of the day. Hopefully it will calm down all the way soon.

Okay well i need to go have to go to the girls' school this afternoon.

Jeni
