A very late good moanin to everyone. But, somehow, I am not sure sure, I think I am getting my days & night mixed up again. I want to sleep during the day and stay up all night. This is no no good. Think I will call gi tomorrow and beg him to let me do Remicade w/o his poop test he wanted. The thing on my back is looking much better. Now, I have been running a low grade fever all week, but if my fever goes away then I will call about Remicade. With that in mind I will wait until Monday and see how things go tomorrow & the weekend. They take your temp all the time doing Remicade so if I show up w/fever, they kick me out and tell me to come back when I have no fever. LOL. If I don't laugh right now, I may cry. I so wanted to go to San Antonio this week, but its been a rough week for me. I am in withdrawals for that cuddly grandbaby boy of mine. Its just not fun or fair right now...Hugs.... Susie

You have all heard me talk about my grandheathen, Savannah. yeah The light of my life, but now Jessie has her light also, tongue she is 6 weeks old. anyway Banna has spent a lot of time with me, she was the only girl on both sides of family until Jessie and there was some jealously there. eyes Due to that(she has now turned 3) Mom decided to enroll her in Headstart.When she told Banna, her response was "I'll pitch a fit", devil well did not phase her Mom. Banna starts school in the morning. My baby girl on a bus all byherself for a whole 2 mile trip. nono When they told me..what did I do( I can hear several of you out there now)..Yeah, I CRIED. sad It seems to me, yes I believe I read somewhere yeah that grandmothers are allowed to attend school with the child, until they are comfortable..I know I read this somewhere. I could go with her yeah and make sure she was doing well, and I am sure she would be comfortable enough to stay by herself in..oh, I don't know....say a year maybe........ eyes redface tongue signed: Broken hearted grandmother sad

Thanks Flopsie for your kind concern and words! I'm so glad to be home safe and sound and to have been able to (more or less) enjoy our trip.
 
I know how you feel about your grandbaby, my daugher starts K on thursday, I took her out for new shoes and some clothes...I almost cried when telling my sister about it. She is getting so big, she has her "style" that has stuck with her for a few years now (she is my little retro girl - a far cry from her mother's "classic" preference!) My son will go to preschool 3  half days a week this year, K next....I'm beside myself. I've either been working or have the 2 of them with me for so long now. I will have 6 hours a week (3 two hour blocks) to myself for the first time in 5 1/2 years.....I am not quite sure HOW I feel about that! I know the time will fly and I'll eventually complain about not having time to do much of anything during that time, but at the same time - my babies are going to both be away from me!!!! sad  I feel so lost already and school hasn't even started yet!
 
Has Erin posted anywhere since the 17th? Is she doing okay?

A very good moanin to all my friends here. I hit paydirt, saw my gi Tues. and he is letting me have my Remicade w/o the poop test he ordered. I still have to get done, but like I told him, the past 3 wks constant diarhea, more concerned with getting to the pot in time, not worried pooping in some darn container for another test. He laughed & said ok, but get it done. I am scheduled for Fri morning, unless they run into a hitch w/my new ins.

I have to pay a % of the each dr visit plus a $40 co-pay. I am nervous as to how much the Remicade will cost for my part. The hospital bills a little over $5200 for each infusion and I go every 4 wks. This may wipe me out. I plan to contact the hospital & discuss them charging off any balance not paid by ins. They have made a ton of money off of me for the past 3 yrs. Can't do w/o my Remicade, so I don't know. Hope everyone has a good day. Hugs...Susie

Susie, will be praying for you, hon. I know the feeling , having to wait for the ok for meds. Waiting now on Ins. approval for Enbrel. Hope all works out. In the US( have to say that, cause don't know where everybody lives) most hospitals have a program, I forgot to remember the name of program, but it charges off what patients can not pay. It is my understanding this is a federal program. Hope they can do that for you.

Time for some relief for you also. Oh, and how about an update on the unit for the knee?

Thinking of you,

Dear Moms, Dads and Grandparents,
I taught JK for 4 years. During that time I had the best days of my life. It truly was a pleasure to teach those little ones, to know that I was their first teacher and I would influence whether or not they loved to come to school or dreaded it. I took that role very seriously. I spent a lot of time going over concerns with parents and grandparents, so if I can ever be of any help, please feel free to email me and I will see what I can do. I always had a volunteer schedule. Each day I would have at least one mom or grandparent in to volunteer. I never had them do the dirty work, like cleaning paint centre, but rather had them read to kids, sit at a table and do crafts with kids, help children with printing, recognizing their name and finding words on the word wall to use in their writing. I also had them join in during circle, sing songs and calendar and the children loved having the extra adult in the room. It came in handy during snack time too, trying to get 25 oranges peeled and straws in drinking boxes or fruit cups opened whatever the parent had sent in. I always kept a stash of emergency snacks for the child who forgot theirs, or for the child whose snack got wrecked by a spilled drinking box. I loved my volunteers and the children did too. I just always had to ensure that they would not go out into the community and say things like "you should see how hard printing is for so and so". I would never allow them to put down a child. With gentle encouragement, oodles of praise and an occasional reminder they blossomed into real little students by the end of the year. So as you cry for yours going off to school, I sit here and cry that I can not play a role in that part of children's and parents and grandparents lives because of this DD. Best of luck to all the parents, grandparents and students out there.
tongue sad I feel happy and sad at the same time.

Susie,

would any of the Remicade financial assistance apply to you? you know that program you fill out & the help give you the med?
i just hate things like this...shelling out every single dollar for medical care. i'm in the same boat.
my prayers & thoughts will be with you.
is there a social services coordinator you can contact in the hospital about this??

Good Moanin HW. Well this will be my last entry in this thread, getting too long. Someone start another. Hello;;hello;;, anybody listening? redface mmm... Guess not, only a couple new posts in ..how many days? sad

That is ok, I really don't mind talking to myself, I do it all the time. Have some really nifty conversations. Don't like answers I get to most of the questions, nono but, trust me ..I AM ALWAYS RIGHT!

Hope everyone is having a Blessed Sunday.

Also, Those of you in Katrina's path..stay safe, you are in my prayers. Watching very closely myself..looks like she may get us also...why not..Dennis and Ivan did. Although looks like her fury is somewhat stronger..
