Holy cow vcp, I gave a lengthy response to this last night and now it's appears to be lost in the bowels of cyberspace!!! ARGH!!! I will reply again when I get the chance.
So true hun and well said, this is certainly one of the things we all have in common.she is the last thing I think about at night and the 1st thing i think about int he morning.
You know, I think this is one of the hardest things to come to terms with. Maybe I'm alone in thinking this, I don't know. I sure as hell never want to hear that my kids have cancer but, how do I say or even think this 'cause it just sounds so wrong in many ways and it probably is. BUT I have found myself at times thinking that at least cancer can have a cure, Crohns doesn't. Maybe it's because many people say to me, when I say Sarah is coming up to 5 years with CD and is remission (is it this word that is the problem?)......"Oh, so she will be okay then? The disease will be gone?" Then again maybe it's just me making excuses for thinking like that in the first place.I know this isn't cancer but it still really does suck to see your babies go thru this.
Lately, the two run together so I think way too much ! :lol:All I have to say is I; she is the last thing I think about at night and the 1st thing i think about int he morning.
Ditto T and and Julz! So good to hear that Daniel is feeling better, YAY! and I hope things are going well for Sarah too!. :hug:@Mom....oh yes, Laughter is THE best medicine !!
Trying to remember, but looking back, I think they just did a regular eye exam (for eye glasses). Almost everyone in my family wear glasses (eventually), including my siblings, neices, nephews, etc... so I don't recall them doing anything like that.just curious Champsmom....when Alex complained of vision issues, and you took him to get his eyes checked, did you allow them to dilate his eyes at the exams?
You're so right, Shell. I just sometimes have these "down" moments where I doubt my worth and ability. But she loves and trusts me. I'm the one she comes to. :hug:
She handled our Thanksgiving meal really well. She didn't get sick at all. Plus, she was in the kitchen with me almost the entire day!
Why o why don't these girls of ours understand this !! :rof::rof:"I'll be fine." Well I won't be!
Dusty - Thanks for always sharing your emotions and for all of your support. I do hope Sarah will "be fine".Sarah did the same at the start of school last year if I recall. She's right, she will be fine! Go knit her a sweater and ease your mind!!
