I need an umbrella for all that has been raining down on me this week! I feel like Winnie the Pooh and the Rainy day.
This rain started with the news that my great uncle had passed away. He was in his 80s, but was still difficult.
The monsoon came when I took my daughter, Raegan, to the Dr. on Tuesday to get a CT Scan. She has had a misshapen head since birth and wore a helmet for about a year. Her pediatrician was concerned that it wasn't getting 100% better and wanted us to get a specialists opinion. Well when the results came back, she has premature fusion of her skull plates. This is why her head shape isn't improving. To fix it requires surgery. This mama didn't like hearing that! They will do a cranioplasty and remove a portion of her skull, reshape it, turn it 180 degrees and reattach it. My child's brain being exposed....NOT COOL!
I know that if we don't fix it, there will be cognitive problems later, so I am just trusting the Lord is going to take care of her. I realize now, that my new position is a blessing from Him. If I had my own classroom, I would still take time off to be with her, but it would be much more stressful to prepare lessons for a sub and prep my kids for a week long absence.
Yesterday the tsunami hit when my aunt told us that her Dr. found a small lump in her breast and the test confirmed that it is breast cancer. She told us it was small and was caught very early and a lumpectomy would be performed and she would have radiation. This was a huge shock to our entire family.
On a more postive note, I do have a freebie for those of you who stuck with through this whole depressing post! I have my word wall cards for 2nd grade. They include, math, high frequency, social studies, and science words.
Tomorrow is Friday, YAY!!!!!!!!!
