Call me Grace

What happens when you put Jenn in the rain, with oily parking lot pavement, a baby carrier in one hand, and milk in the other?

Yep that's my foot covered in an oily nasty mess from my graceful fall in the parking lot. Luckily Jude was in his carrier, and I even saved the milk. My toes are a little bruised, and so is my pride. Jude got a little thump from his car seat, but he didn't seem to mind. So thankfully everyone was okay.

So I am a bit tired lately, and a little stressed. Between work, Em's smile boxes, showers, and birthdays I need a bubble bath. I take a lot of this on myself so I have no one to blame but me, and I enjoy being busy. Although, if you are a friend that calls me, forgive me if I sound out of it, or distracted. Just remember I still love you, and bear with me. I had to deal with MDCP again this morning, employer Id Numbers, etc...so I am rather frazzled today.

I talked with my family in Missouri yesterday, and they are talking about taking a trip to TX for Jude's birthday. This is very kind of them, and I am very happy they have thought about doing this. I am making Jude's birthday rather laid back, and a come and go basis. I have had friends volunteer to bring some food, which is so wonderful, and well help a lot.

I did get to go see little Jude today on lunch. Mike has a paint job he is working on so he dropped Jude at his moms house. I went over there and got a bunch of kisses, and a few smiles from him. It was a great visit, and I was so happy to see him in the middle of a work day. Thursday, we go see the pediatric hematologist who is a childhood stroke specialist. I am very interested in seeing what she has to say about Jude. I have gathered all my blood tests, and Jude's to take to her. Jude will also go back to get his eyes checked on Friday, and will also be fitted for her adaptive stroller Friday. He has a very busy week ahead of him.

Hi there...I just found your blog last week. I think I read one of your comments on someone else's blog.

Anyway, I'm the mom of a stroke baby, too. My son is now almost 2 1/2 and we found out about my son's stroke the day after he was born. Obviously, every child & stroke is different, but I've met a few really cool moms (who are also navigating this craziness online) the last few years.
Look forward to reading more...Good luck with your hematologist. Fortunately, I really liked ours and she really partnered well with us. (Can't say that about everyone else, though).

Glad to find you...

Shoot! I hate when that happens! I dislocated my pinkie toe, last weekend, when I walked right into the kitchen wall! It fixed itself, though! I am sending wishes of big bubbles and candles your way, Jenn!
