Real fun week- not.

This week has been real interesting. no school for kids since wedsnesday. You, they have been home with me because of parent/teacher conferences on wednesday thursday and today is veterans day and of course DAY OFF. I am not liking this not one bit. All absent days in school will make my kids summer vacation really short. School ends on june 20th this year. Yuck. I have plans for summmer you know . I wish last day of school was june 10th.

allrighty guys. Guess what ?? 3 months have passed very fast and on sunday Regina, Gabriel and I will go to memphis again. THis time it is really short. Our flight lands in memphis 12 .15 AM ( yup, middle of the night lol) Our first apointment is on monday 4 pm ( MRI) . And on tuesday we have just patient screening an no off therapy and the we fly back to CA ( tuesday afternoon. ) We will be back 6 pm.

I am not asking much from you guys- just think about us and send some clean scan vibes to Regina :)

Genotropin and Regina.

( Regina drew this Picture to my sister Sija today) I have to ship it to her. I am not sure what inspired her, but I love it. It is very interesting piece of art. :)
Regina has been on Genotropin ( growth hormone) over a month now. She really does not mind shots and it is not hurting her. HOWEVER, there are few side effects that are bothering me, and I hope to get answers to my questions when we go to memphis this upcoming sunday ( we will get there at midnight on sunday and get back to OC, on tuesday afternoon).
Anyway , here are the side effects that I think Regina is having.

  • Constant Headaches
  • constant stomach aches
  • feeling "shaky" at times, mostly before bedtime
  • heart beats faster ( she tells me that her heart wants to jump out of her chest)
  • increased birthmark growth.- suddenly seems like birthmarks are increasing in size and popping up one after another
  • SHE IS VERY, VERY moody,
  • VERY hard to handle
  • sudden changes in her mood, ( cryes one moment, and then she is suddenly fine.
  • Little things drive her out of her element- I take her empty cup away, and she will run after me and scream on top of her lungs like I am murdering her..... etc.
  • Increased coughing at night ( one of possible side effects)
So here you go. I am pretty sure that tummy and head pains are caused by meds, also- she might be little depressed, since I am not the "best" mommy at the moment. I expect to much from her and that causes some stress between us.... and Gabriel sees it and uses it to his advantage....

If I got payd to do my job as being mom- I'd be millionaire......
