Mommy Time

Today I made a big leap in reclaiming my own life - I went to the doctor.  For me.  Nothing serious, no major concerns, but I hadn't been since my 6 week postpartum visit, and a few issues needed attention.  I also needed my flu shot - there is no way I can afford to get sick.

It was also nice to get to see our family doctor, who I hadn't seen since we took Scarlett to see her for an emergency chest x-ray when she had RSV in February.  I have been seeing her for years, and we chose her to be Scarlett's doctor before we knew she would need her own team of specialists.  I will forever be grateful to this doctor for taking the bruise and swelling on Scarlett's head so seriously at her two month appointment; if we had waited even a few days to get her to a neurosurgeon, she would likely have had seizures and lost some of her vision as the tumor was growing at full speed.  We look forward to the day when Scarlett can have a "normal" doctor again, and we know where we'll take her!

We have an amazing 41 appointments scheduled for Scarlett's Birthday Blood Drive!  We are hearing a lot of "I'll be there!!"s, so try to make an appointment so you don't have to wait too long.  We've got confirmed snacks from our friends at Dino's Grill in Newark, some fun raffle prizes stacking up thanks to Terry Malcomson, a plan for music and birthday cake, of course!  If you have raffle prizes to donate, or any questions, please e-mail us!
