|Sean and I had our once a month date day. Tori, Addie, and Ellie came to watch the kiddos all morning, afternoon, and evening. It was so nice to have that day with my husband to reconnect and build a stronger marriage. I got a mani/pedi, Sean got us Starbucks and Godiva, and then we went to The Island in Pigeon Forge. There are cute shops and restaurants there. The music was obnoxious though. Then we went to dinner at Sweetpea's in Knoxville. :) I'm still thinking about our day together and it's Monday now!|
|Unfortunately, father's Day wasn't as good. I couldn't even serve my husband coffee when we woke up because the outlet was dead. Then he took me to the ER for chest pain that I've had on and off since June 1st. Its varied from being constant to intermittent to not at all. Sometimes it's really painful and sometimes not. Sometimes it goes down my left arm and into my back. Sometimes it's positional. Sometimes my fingers are numb. Sometimes it hurts to take deep breaths. Well, chest x-ray and blood work were normal and EKG showed a nonspecific T wave abnormality. MD offered admit and stress test, but we decided (with my FIL's wisdom) to just followup with my PCP. Sean and I are thinking more muscular and/or stress and anxiety. But I'm glad we ruled out the BIG stuff. Today I haven't felt much pain at all and I am thankful to God for that. I have been stressed (overwhelmed) with trying to manage being wife, mother of 6, keeping up with the house, cooking, laundry, errands, groceries, friends, family, church, etc, etc, etc. Sean and I were able to talk a lot about that on our date and he's on board to helping me stress less and enjoy all my blessings. I'm on board too. :)|
|Our "Little King" turned 8 April 29th, but for some reason the celebration continued in to June lol! We surprised him and took him to Chuck E Cheese and his BFF was there, as well. Then off to Toys R Us and a Starbux for finishing swim. Good day for him. Birthday is officially over. ha ha. :)|
Pray for andrew. He had his ENT f/u app. He has fluid in the right ear, which he is now on Zyrtec for to hopefully dry it up, and he has a perforated eardrum on the left, which happened because of ear tubes. Grrr. Good thing is, is it is acting as a natural tube and draining fluid. The perforation may heal on its own, but if not he would have to have surgery where they take a piece of skin from his neck to patch up the hole. If there is still fluid, still talking about tubes. Great news is he passed his hearing test! Next app is Aug 22nd.
Hunter is doing great PTL and seems to be healed up nicely!!!!
