Dec 31st Dan left the house at 4am heading south to Indiana to pick up Av from her 5 day dive camp at Ripfest. This was her 2nd time attending their winter camp and she just loved it!!
They had a great facility to dive at
Can you find my Waldo?
What a great turn out of kids at the camp! She is sitting down in the first row right in the middle in the shadow.
As you can see she worked hard, but still had fun. and made some new life long friends. They were up everyday at 5:45 am then the day was filled with classes n speakers, dry land, workouts, and pool time (they had to drive 50 mins one way to get to the pool), until lights out at 10:30 pm.
As I was browsing the photos posted on their FB page I come across this one. My first thought was OUCH......then I recognized the suit and thought SHIT that's my kid's leg.
Then next photo was of her showing off her smack wound. She's pretty proud of it!!
Couldn't be prouder of Av and her sportsmanship and dedication....... She was Awarded the Athlete of the Week!!
After the "meet" (they put on to showcase some of the things they learned), Dan and Av loaded up the car and headed back home. It was a good time for her to nap :)
And the cold snap continues........
Never good when the frost is on the inside of your door ~ Brrrrr!
Breakfast with the family as even Av will have a shake in the morning before school :)
My Aunt Bonnie had this wonderful placque done up for Ms Bailey. She is definitely missed! I swear I still hear her barking at the door some days to be let in :(
I had to pick my heart up off the floor and was just in shock! I got some information about it but after the appt is when all my questions started to pop in my head. Unfortunately at the moment we can not tell when it occurred, but after my many questioned email to Dr K (who also knew nothing of this finding), they are pulling old EKG's to see if they can get a better idea of when it would have happened. With all the things that Danny has endured, you'd think I would be handle things pretty well. This news hit me hard, my Lil Man has had a heart attack!?!?! How could I have not known!?! Don't worry I will try my best to get to the bottom of this. But his forever lengthy list of diagnosis' seems to continue to grow :( In this EKG we have found that his heart now has more abnormalities, all things that are not too serious, but things I am definitely going to get more info about and see if I should more concerned then I'm being lead to believe. Once again with his extensive list of issues we are going to have to figure out if the heart is actually the issue or if his severe brain damage is the driving force to this. Lots of times this is the case and we have to figure out what came first .... the chicken or the egg
This weekend we had some nice down time ...... with the fireplace roaring pretty much non stop due to the extreme sub zero temps I took some time to start figuring out some plans for Spring Break! Fun in the Sun HERE WE COME!!
Then the next day it's back down to Milwaukee with Danny for a dental appt. Not that I really want to go back to back days down to Milwaukee but he really needs to be seen by the dentist as we have found that behind his 2 front teeth (all his teeth are permanent now) he has 2 teeth coming down so that really needs to be checked out. I will taking Danny back in for follow up x-rays the end of the week to check the progress of the Pneumonia he had over winter break....as I'm not sure he has completely recovered from that yet.
Av is starting ski club tomorrow, much to her dive coaches concerns (she has dive meet on Sunday). She is very excited to be able to get on the ski hills again as we haven't had the time to get there yet this year. I just hope the weather warms up and most importantly pray she doesn't get hurt or we'll both be in hot water with her coach!! Av met up with a great family here in the subdivision and she will be starting to babysit for their Lil girl. I have to say Av is very excited to babysit not only to make some extra cash, but to hang out with the Lil girl.....she's a doll!!
This Saturday we are having a great opportunity here at the house, as a CPR/AED and BLS instructor is coming to due a class. What a great time for some of my local nurses and friends get their certification. Av and I will also be renewing ours too, just in time for her to start her babysitting career.
Thanks for stopping by to check in on us. I hope you all are staying warm!!
