7 Quick Takes.


Today was the last day of school for everyone. We have 6 weeks summer holidays now. I am going to spend a lot of time sewing over the next few weeks. 


It is a while since I have done a big monthly cook. I am going to get back into it these holidays. 


Joseph will be going to Adelaide soon to have a MRI. He needs to be put under a general anaesthetic for this so they are going to take bloods for some other tests. I asked the Doctor that is in charge of the MRI if they could also take blood to test for type one diabetes since Tom and Christopher both have it. I really hope he isn't positive but if he is, it is better for us to know that it is coming. 


Joseph has had an AFO for about 4 weeks now. We are noticing a difference but he still has a long way to go with it. When he first had it, he hated having it on so much that he was hiding it from us. We also had a big fight with him to get it on his leg. Now he doesn't mind it being on and cooperates when we need to put it on. 


Tom has been on daily injections for a couple of weeks now. His pump malfunctioned and because he has had it for 4 years, it isn't under warranty any longer. Every 4 years, our health insurance pays for one so as soon as we can get everything organised for it, Tom will be back on the pump. 


This weekend we will be going to Carols by candlelight in Gladstone Square. We haven't been for the last couple of years and I am really looking forward to it. 


I cannot think of anything else so for number 7, I am just going to remind you to pop over to Jennifer's for more 7 quick takes.

Why does Joseph need an MRI? Poor little guy!

AnchorMama, Joseph had a stroke while he was in the uterus most likely. They want to do a MRI to see the extent of the damage from it I think.

I hope you received good news on your Joseph.

I hope the carols were wonderful!

I pray for your children's health. God bless you and Merry Christmas.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
