About Me

I am a below knee amputee. More importantly, I am also Mommy to two boys, a very active 10 year old (Robby) and an mischievous toddler (Timmy). I have learned that being a parent with a disability can create some unusual and sometimes humorous situations. This blogger is available for hire! Let's talk and learn how a blog can expand your business.

Unwinding Into the Weekend

Robby's first band practice was a resounding success. Although he was nervous all day, and was shaking during the drive to the music school, he calmed down as soon as he arrived. His bandmates seem nice and Robby was welcomed with open arms. I feel an enormous sense of relief that practice went well for him. Now he can concentrate on learning the songs and just having fun with new friends.

Today Robby is busy at his school for enrichment classes. He adores Fridays and looks forward to these classes all week. Three solid hours of WWII role playing games is right up his alley!  

While Robby is busy at school, Timmy and I have an appointment with his immunologist. We are going to be doing another gammagobulin transfusion, which is never a fun way to spend an afternoon. It is too early to know if the transfusions are working, but we are hopeful that his little immune system will be redirected to work properly through this protocol.  

Much of our weekend will be spent helping Timmy recover from his treatment. Although he doesn't become sick, he feels worn out and icky afterwards. Hopefully that will not be the case, but I am trying to prepare for a few yucky feeling days.  

Thankfully it will be over the weekend so Scott will be home to help. Like his brother when he was younger, Timmy wants to cuddle with his Daddy whenever he feels sick. I suspect that he will be curled up watching football, baseball and hockey for the next few days.
