Today, I was up showering and getting Michael ready, waking up Alex, breakfast,
lunch box, brushing teeth, raincoats... And then I was back in bed!!!
I decided that instead of doing stuff around the house, dealing with insurance claims (which you can imagine we have a lot of those - Alex has racked up quite a medical bill), trying to get a workout in or all the other things I can usually
Come up with.. Instead at 8:55 when Alex and dad walked out the door I ran back to bed!!!
It is now 11 and I am just waking up and in a little bit I have to go pick up happy Alex at school. What a great morning.
Alex continues to enjoy school. Last week was the first time she went while on steroids and I warned the teachers that her whole personality changes sometimes and I kept waiting for a call to go get her because she was having a meltdown but she kept it together. I think she was really trying to hold in all those strange feelings caused by the steroids at school and when she came home she would have a full melt down. She continues to have a hard time with the steroids and feeling nauseous and tired while taking them. Now she old enough where she can recognize that oxicodone helps her pain and asks for the "red medicine."
So sad to hear her asking for oxycodone but it makes a world of difference. Writhing ten minutes we see a change in her. Steroids are now done for this cycle and happy happy Alex is back to being herself and surely will want to go out and jump in some muddy puddles like Peppa Pig :)
