Since I typically do not get a chance to post anything over the weekends, I thought that I would make Mondays my catch up day.
Over the weekend I learned that another BA baby had been sent to heaven. I did not know this family at all, but it does hit close to home. The little girl was 10 1/2 months old and had just received part of her mother’s liver on Monday. She passed Friday or Saturday I believe. There are no words to express my sadness over this news. If only we could find a cause and then a cure for this disease.
To get the sad news out of the way first, sorry guys, I also learned that some friends of the family lost their 21 year old son on Saturday. It was such a sad circumstance and my heart truly goes out to the family.
Now, on to happier thoughts. Last night we got to meet Jax's dad and sister. I had already met his mom and Jax. The huz got to meet the family though so it was nice. We took Monkey and Mouse over to see them while I delivered some items that I made for them. It was so nice to be able to sit and visit with them. I love talking to other BA families. I think that it helps bring them hope. I also think that we owe it to Monkey's angel and other families to help them through this disease; whatever the outcome. Monkey was upset when we left. She wanted to stay and play with Jax's sister some more. I promised more play dates soon.
I am SO happy that it is March it's not even funny. I hope that it starts to get warmer around here. I am SO tired of the dreary grey and wet. I know that it will probably rain a lot the next few weeks, but it's better than snow. I like snow, but this time around I just seem ready for spring. I think that it is because Monkey needs to get outside and play. Plus, I want to get on my skates at the local park.
We got a crib for Mouse this weekend. Thanks mom and dad! Now we just need to get a mattress and put it together. She is growing out of her basinet SO quickly. Monkey was in her basinet for 7 months almost. I can't believe how different it is to have a healthy little one in the house. Mouse is going to be giving Monkey a run for her money soon. She is going to be rolling in no time. I can't wait to watch them play together. It is going to be so sweet.
And at last, today is the day I fid out if I made the derby league or not. Try outs are today and then they will call us all afterwards, once they have decided, to let us know if we made it. I am actually nervous. I know that I should have been doing something this past week to try to up my chances, but it didn't happen. No one's fault but my own. I have decided that even if I don't make it, I am going to volunteer to help out. Then, in a few months, when try outs open up again I will try again. And keep trying until I make it.
