this and that.

first of all, a little advice.  if, by chance, you will be stuck inside your home for multiple months due to a need to avoid germs, giving up all of your vices is not in anyone's best interest.  thankfully, i can still nap.

secondly, jillian (from the biggest loser) hates my legs.  and the feeling is mutual.  two days in to one of her work out videos, and i am considering purposefully dehydrating myself. the pain that comes from sitting and then standing back up, to go to the bathroom, is not worth it.

third, we are mere weeks away from re-entering the world.  i just purchased one of these bad boys for shilo to use.  i'm pretty excited to get to grocery shop in the mornings again, with both of my girls, while the rest of the world is at work.  sunday afternoons suck in grocery stores.

fourth, our video eeg results were....abnormal!  no big surprise there.  so we will be starting on seizure meds, and i will spend hours upon hours reading about the type of seizures she has, and watching youtube videos.  it's what all of the cool parents do.  i would tell you what they were, but abigail was talking at me while the nurse was talking to me on the phone.  i only grasped the really important things.

fifth, abigail and i had a three minute back and forth discussion, completely in asl.  now if only she would apply that to me signing, 'please wait' while i'm on the phone with aforementioned nurse.

last, i gave up facebook for lent.  so most of these things are what i would have posted there, but i can't.  and so, instead, you get my small life blurps.  you're welcome.


  1. My sister is on seizure meds. One thing most doctors do not mention is the impact of various seizure meds on a person' electrolytes (salt, potassium, etc) as well as their impact on a body's ability to absorb vitamins and nutrients. Having read you blog for a bit, I figured you might want to research this with whatever seizure meds your little is prescribed!

  2. As stir crazy as you may be feeling, I think you guys had the right idea staying inside and away from people. This has been the most brutal year of illness I have experienced in my 6.5 years as a parent. Its unreal. Glad you all have been able to ride it out unscathed. :)


  3. Oh my goodness that kangaboo looks WONDERFUL!!!!! What a great idea! And yeah to reentering the world soon!!!!!! I. CAN'T. WAIT.
