Musing Along

I wanted to let you know that I am still working on the post about DQ. It's taking me longer than I anticipated. I may just break it down to smaller posts, who knows?

I am a little concerned this evening. TP's hands and ankles have been swollen for the past few days, plus she's had a headache, and she's very fatigued. If there is no improvement by tomorrow, I'll need to call her specialist, and we'll have her blood work done a week early. These are all the symptoms of a flare, which would really devastate TP because we just got her IV infusions of Solu-Medrol down to once a month.

DQ had a two hour Study Skills class this morning at her new school. She didn't want to go at all, but I insisted due to her ADD. I also wanted her to know what is going to be required of her as a freshman, because she won't be getting any second chances this year in terms of handing in her homework, etc. Anyway, when I picked her up, she was thrilled she had gone. She met some new friends, plus there were a few kids she knew from her old elementary school.

We are limbo right now - I can't really go into many details at this point - but let me tell you this. I hate uncertainty. I don't deal well with not knowing. I'd rather know one way or the other, then I know what needs to be done. I know I need to practice what I preach "Don't worry, it doesn't do you any bit of good to worry about something because it may never come to pass, just let it go and put it in God's hands". Well, in all honesty, sometimes I'm better at doing that than other times. And right now, I am having difficulty with just letting go. I think my coping skills are quite frayed, thanks to what we've been through in the past 4 years.

Enough of that. What will be, will be.

I understand what you mean about letting things go and not worrying about them. I don't let go of anything without leaving claw marks, lol. Even when you know the situation is in God's hands, it's so hard to just sit back and wait. I want to take care of things myself.

Hope your daughter is doing better.

Yes, well, let's see someone actually stop worrying totally and I'll show you someone with nothing to worry about.
Break your story into as many pieces as necessary, we expect the same journalistic quality as always. :)

Hi Tyra, Mrs. D., Paul, and Paula:

Thanks for your support - it means everything to me.
TP is better today - the swelling has gone done, and the fatigue is gone. I'll keep an eye on her - and the minute it returns, I'll call her doctor. It's difficult to determine when to call the doctor - sometimes I've called and it's basically a "false alarm", other times I don't call and come to find out it's serious and I should have called days before. That leaves me questioning my judgement!

Take care, my friends - I shall return tomorrow!

I have been praying since I was a little late in visiting - sorry!!!

Blessings and hope the improvement keeps up.

I prayed for your daughters that they both have a wonderful school year and good health. It is so hard to a student in this day and age. I am always telling people don't worry, it just makes you feel bad and is not going to change the situation. Hang in there sweetie!

Yep, it's me stopping by to thank you for the comments and to see if you had a new post up yet. Thanks for being such a good blogging buddy.
