Never ending...

With all the hubub about Christmas last week & me not having my head on straight (thanks, vicodin!), I forgot about Vaeh's upcoming test. We had already rescheduled her cardiology visit as well as the CT scan for the week of Jan. 12th. She see's her pc on Monday that week, then on Wednesday we have to go to Toledo Children's for her CT scan. Going to be quite a busy week. Oh, but wait... it gets better!

Her latest heart cath was to follow her CT scan. The thing about the heart cath is that it has to be done at another hospital in Toledo, due to sedation/anesthesia issues. I'm not really happy with having to go to this other hospital because its one that 1.) we're not used to (even though she's had 2 caths there, & 2.) we've had some issues with the care she's received there with her past caths. Radiology tech's being rude & treating Vaeh, my Mom & me with such disrespect & disregard for Vaeh as a patient. (Let's just say don't get me started on this tangent!)

But the week of Jan. 12th just got a little busier. Dr. Butto's (her pc's) office called last Wednesday & they've scheduled her heart cath for Jan 15th, which would be Thursday that week. So, we'll be in Lima on Monday, Toledo on Wednesday, & Toledo again (down town - ugh! what a great neighborhood - NOT!) Thursday!

Now comes the fun part... figuring out the logistics. Do I take Vaeh to Toledo on Wednesday & just spend the night there, or do we come home, & make the drive again the next day. I believe her cath is scheduled for noon, so we wouldn't have to leave at the crack of dawn. The other thing I have to take into consideration is Gabby. She's been pushed to the side for Vaeh's tests so much & Wednesday is a school day for her, so I have to decide whether to keep her out of school & take her with me, or find someone willing to keep her on Wednesday & cart her to/from school.

And all of this while fighting hot flashes - UGH!!! Will we ever get away from Vaeh having tests so frequently?! Oh well, just another day in paradise, right?! (lol) What a way to start 2009 off!

Tell me that there is comfort in knowing that you are not alone! :0)

My advice: Take Gabby and some nail polish. Make it fun in the hotel...focus on only fun girl stuff that night! So Vaeh "just happens" to have a test the next day. :0)

That's my two cents :0)
I hear you on the hot flashes...the consuming FIRE that comes out of no where....ah, what fun!!! Hang in there.
BTW...I know why the deer are holding so much fat...it has been FREEZING here! I told Michael...Tina told me it was going to be a rough one! :0)

Talk about crazy busy! Tina, you and Vaeh will get through it just fine. I do agree with the others, staying the night seems to make sense.

It must be hard, just getting over surgery too. We'll be praying for you, supermom!

Welcome to 2009! Let's hope it starts busy and a little rough and gradually just gets better. That is one packed week you have coming up...yikes! I like the Girl Night idea. Try to make the night about Gabby...and oh yeah, Vaeh has a test the next day.. Great idea!

We will be praying hard for your crazy week. Everything will fall into place. Hang in there..xooxoxox

Thanks so much for signing the petition on my blog. Every little bit helps! Your daughter is beautiful. Thank you for sharing with me. I was always the patient, and have wondered what it would be like to be the mom of an unhealthy child (all mine are healthy). Watching my own mom, I know it takes courage. May the Lord guide you and strengthen you as you care for Nevaeh.

God bless,

~Brenda

We, too, have an insanely busy month of January. Praying that everything goes well with the PC checkup and the cath.

I agree...you should take Gabby with you and have a fun girl night at the hotel.

I'll be thinking and praying for you guys.
