I have lots of small things coming to my mind that I want to get out to you, so here we go.
First, you may want to follow the blog of the Livesay family in Haiti. I read today that they took five of their children to the US Embassy where they were going to be taken to a cargo plane and flown to an unknown location in the US. It is difficult to imagine what they are experiencing in Haiti, but reading their blog helps me to feel personally connected to the crisis.
Second, I want to give an update on Dimples’ tummy for those of you have asked. I didn’t realize that there are still a few biopsy results pending, including one for lactose intolerance, which has always been a question for us. Thank you for the advice many of you have offered. If these come back negative, we’ll seriously look at medication side effects as well as a couple of other things. The doctor said to be completely thorough we should do a CT scan of Dimples’ head on the very remote chance that there could be a growth or something causing pressure. None of us think that is the case. I asked the nurse if the doctor was only doing the CT to make me feel that he had left no stone unturned and she replied that just yesterday they found a tumor in the brain of a child who was having chronic nausea and vomiting. We’ll decide about the CT next week.
Honeybee and our friends are in Jimma now. I am thinking of them constantly and praying for a rich and wonderful time there. The younger children at home are missing her, especially Little Man who is very attached to his older sister. Boo has been doing a good job keeping the little boys busy and yesterday they played an elaborate puppy game.
My Sensory books haven’t arrived yet, but I expect they will soon. I’m ready…I think.
All for now.
