As you can see by my previous post, my best friend is in dire straights. It is like re-living my nephews birth at 31 weeks a little over a year ago all over again, but knowing that at 27 weeks things are so much more fragile and the outcomes are more work and sometimes not so good. I have this big knot in my stomach that is making me sick with worry. Why does it feel so much worse? Probably because she doesn't have much support in Iowa. Her mom has a new job and can't take time off. Her husband is in school and has to work to pay the bills. At least my sister had my mom, dad, and her MIL and FIL.

Connor had his first round of testing on Monday. The guy said that he wanted us to come back to repeat the testing. He also said that Connor was a busy boy (aren't all boys) and he could see why there might be a question/problem of distractability. What does that mean? Does it mean that he didn't score high enough on anything to pinpoint a cause? Does it mean, he scored super high in one area, but the guy doesn't believe it? If he comes back with an ADD or ADHD do I accept it even though my sister a teacher has told me that she don't believe he has it and she has worked with a lot of those kids or that I don't think he meets all the symptoms on-line? I know there is no use worrying, what will be will be, but....I can't help it.

We leave tomorrow for CO and I wish I was excited to go. My stomach is in knots and I am ready to puke. Off to do more packing. Hopefully I will have some nice pictures to share when we get back.

  1. I hope you have a great time in CO. We will be praying for your friend. I cant even imagine going it virtually alone.

    As for Connor depending on the results I would seek out a second opinion. I went to this anti-depressant drug dr down in Redmond and ended up having to take teh kids with me. He kept saying how busy they were the whole time. My kids are hardly "busy" in the way he was implying it. He himself had kids and it made we wonder if he had drugged his kids their whole life so they wouldn't be "busy". Boys will be boys as will girls. My kids like to sit around and do nothing but at the same time ALL they do is fight. I would just make sure to get a second opinion.

    Again have a great time in Co. I have never been skiing but it is something I want to try next winter.
