I have a lot on my mind right now. It is funny when I look at facebook and they ask what is on your mind I just stair not knowing what to put - because there is so much there.
This week I took Somer to Denver to see a Pediatric Urologist. She has what is called VUR (Urinary Reflux). She pees back up into her kidneys. They gave us 3 ways to treat it: medicine and time to see if she grows out of it (there is a 30% chance she will do that), a none evasive same day 20 minute surgery (it has an 80% success rate), and an evasive over night 2 hour surgery (it has a 99% success rate). I decided to do the meds for a year and then she will be reevaluated and we will see where she is at. I am confident with my decision but it is still tiring and hard to go through. They also said that some of her fussiness (she is not really fussy she will just randomly cry in pain) is because they can feel the urine going back into their kidneys and it hurts - I would cry too.
I am thankful for friends like Kim and Ashley that went with us to Denver. Ashley had to see her specialists too; it was nice to have understand people to go with. I really missed Matt - he is my best friend and partner and Somers dad and it was hard to make major decisions without him. He agrees, but it was still hard to do. I also missed my big kids - they are fun to be around and I enjoy them all. I think they missed me too - when I got hoe last night they talked my ear off; both of them.
"I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord..." God knows what the future holds and He has a plan. I do not have to one. I can just take the steps I hear Him telling me to take I know that He has it under control.
I am applying to go back to school online - okay I said it, it is out there, it is real. I am going to get a BS in Human Services Management - a social workers degree. Eventually what I want to do it adoption home studies. The degree has to come first; so I am starting there - it will be online.
That is all. Enjoy your weekend.
