Hello everyone! I hope you’ve all recovered from the holidays and that you got to spend some time with people who mean something to you. I was going to say family but then I realised that for some, family is not who we would choose to hang out with voluntarily. We had family from both sides down for a few days and it was great! The girls had a blast and even though we are back to regular life again Bug is still asking when we can put the Christmas tree back up. She also asks when Winter will be over and is not to happy when I say about 100 sleeps. Yesterday Bug had to go to the hospital for an ABR with anesthetic. If you don’t know that is an Automatic Brain Response test. She had been tested for her hearing since birth, as is standard now, and has always just missed passing those tests. SInce I have hearing loss as well they decided to do this test just to rule out any serious issues. The scary part of course is that she has to be put under for the test to be done. We have been very lucky in that both of our girls have had no serious medical issues so this was the first big thing we’ve had to go to the hospital for. Thankfully everything went well and the tests were normal so Bug is back at school today and probably telling everyone that she got 2 popsicles and a ride in a bed with wheels! I asked her if there was any part of the day that was bad, considering we were there for 8.5 hours, and she said no, it was all fun and good. I think that says a lot about the nurses and doctors that we interacted with and even those that were just walking by but gave her a wave or a quick chat. I know there are times when our medical system doesn’t work smoothly or the wait times can be long but I have yet to leave the hospital after something for myself and now the kids without being grateful to the staff and the system.
In box news, there has been none. As you might have noticed from the lack of posts. I have received three boxes so far this month and that leaves 12 to arrive. Hopefully this week I will get LookFantastic, Little Life Box, and Topbox. I do have a couple of new boxes I signed up for to come but since I’ve never received them before I don’t know if they are a middle of the month one or closer to the end. I’m starting to get amil withdrawal! Having done a bunch of my Christmas shopping online, not getting something everyday in December has spoiled me for mail delivery. I’m sure my mailman is happier without the load but I’m really hoping for something soon!
Take Care All!!
