Never a dull moment in my house let me tell you! Getting pretty close to Christmas, a few more sleeps and then we will get a bit of a break.
Have to say I’m ready for it, was quite the eventful few weeks again.
After my girl was finally over her cold, the next thing came along. Terrible back pain. She couldn’t sleep, couldn’t focus, was basically just getting through the days. She stuck it out for a day and a half at school, but I had to pick her up for she couldn’t handle it anymore. The rest of the week she stayed home. Took her to see our physician and he prescribed her pain medication and physiotherapy. I’ve never been a big fan of pain medication but it was inevitable at this point. It gave her the chance to relax her muscles and in combination with the massages she finally got some relief. She made it back to school for a four day week and at the end of that week her ankle was flared up again. It definitely is time for a break!
Her missing out so much school is starting to affect her grades. When she is able to attend school she has so much catching up to do that it seems she never gets a break. I’m currently looking in to some options we may have to relief her from some of the burden that this is putting on her shoulders. Stress is definitely not helping her and her main focus at the moment should be her physical health. On the other hand, I don’t want to ruin her chances for her future plans, when it comes to qualifications for potential post high school courses. Luckily we still have a few years to go, and hopefully by then this will all be a thing from the past!
Now we have only 3 more days of school left. The first day of the break we’re off to Calgary for another IV and after that……Yes, Christmas! Lights, loved ones, presents, good food and good company, bring it on!
Warm winter wishes from my house to yours!
