Well, we made it.

Christina was her usual self and unhappy with the car ride. She started crying before we even made it out of the drive. She stopped crying when we took her out of the car at the hotel.

Angela just slid her into bed. A bit of wind down for us and off to sleepy land.

Christina's appointment is at 0730. No food or drink from midnight until after the appointment.

I think if she is up to it, I will take her swimming in the pool. She should enjoy that. I will too.

More updates later.

Lots on my mind.

Well, it is Monday night and we have everything packed for tomorrow. We will leave after I am done with work tomorrow night. Then Christina's appointment is in the AM. The poor thing can't have any food or drink before her appointment. I guess we can be in the room when they give her the injections. That should be an interesting experience.

That is where all the thoughts start flooding in. Christina gets Botox in her calves. It will be her first round. The thought of purposely injecting a toxin into the body seems odd. But, it makes sens logically. The toxin will make it easier for Christina to bend her legs when her foot is in the correct position.

Then Wednesday, Christina has her appointment with the neurologist. That should go well. I always get a bit uptight before hand though. And afterwards can be hard. Hearing info from the doc can be tough, even when it is the same 'ol stuff.

Time to load the car and go to bed. Long week.

Angela's Surgery

Angela's surgery went well. It was a long day at the doctor, but went OK. Angela handled everything well, she was out for quite awhile, even in recovery. And of course, the first thing she asked for was coffee. I picked up some chocolate too.

Christina also handled it very well. Her and I played and sang while waiting for mommy. I brought the chair along and that worked well for lunch. Christina and I set up camp in a corner at the coffee shop and ate lunch.

Christina also handled her stretches in the waiting room. We are getting a handle on some of the sensory issues.

Angela is finding out how much she uses both hands to do things. Picking Christina up or setting her down is a bit tricky now. And the stretches are difficult.

Christina is already showing signs of revolt. The little squirt will purposely throw herself against Angela's sore arm. And while walking will suddenly drop to a sitting position. Not to mention the grabbing and typical hitting(not purposeful).

It will be a long week. Next week are Christina's appointments.

We have lots of appointments coming up so I figured I better post while I can.

Angela has surgery coming up this week. Christina's appointments are the end of the month into October. I think we have surgery, neurologist, eye, physiologist, and then the dentist. The dentist appointment will be her first cleaning.

Time to get ready for work.

Up Early

Christina, my little princess, has been up most of the night. I decided to try and be productive. Check email, weather, woot, blog.

Christina is so cute this time of the morning. Her eyes are big, we didn't turn on any big lights. She has a big yawn every three minutes or so. And, as we sit here, she is bracing one hand on the desk and grabbing the laptop with the other.

Christina's turn to type :

xz hmmmmmmmmmmm. ka jcvvbvvnnffjklkmghhhhhhhhhkjkhgdvcfvjjffhjfjfjjjh

End quote.
