I haven't been writing much lately, eh? What's up with that?
I don't know, honestly. I sit down to write a few times a week and....nothing. Life has been pretty kosher lately, calm and even keeled. KayTar has been healthy for 6 weeks (minus her minor illness on her birthday) and we've just been sailing on through. It is odd and wonderful and I'm appreciating it through silence, subconsciously trying to postpone the inevitable jinx.
There are things to write about, like how KayTar brought home a gift from a BOY earlier this week, an older boy who has taken quite a shine to our KayTar. He's a five year old from the older PPCD class and he likes her so much that his reward for good behavior is being allowed to stop by her classroom and tell her hello. He made her a poster sized collage of leaves (he collects leaves), that says, "To KayTar (heart) From J". How adorable is that?
I could write about how KayTar's nighttime coughing/vomiting cycles haven't relented in spite of 6 weeks of health and various asthma medication adjustments, so we're starting to think it might just be long term undiagnosed reflux that triggers the nocturnal exacerbations, as it has been happening since infancy without fail. The pediatrician has started her on Prevacid, but it is seemingly IMPOSSIBLE to administer via g-button due to clogging and regurgitation from the valve (seriously, if anyone knows the trick to this, please let me know!) so we have no clue whether it will help or not. I have to call the magical compounding pharmacist on Monday and see if he can whip up a magical potion for us.
I could write about how I'm 99.7% sure I'm going to switch to premed next semester, about how I'm excited and terrified all at once.
I could post some cute photos, like these from an impromptu nap...
I could write about how I'm going to Austin on Thursday to testify in front of our state House, also exciting and terrifying.
I could write about a lot of things at length, but for now, these snippets will have to suffice.
