HAPPY 4th OF JULY!
So we have lived in West Virginia for over five years now, I am still amazed at how much "country folk" love their fireworks. It has really been July 4th around here since mid-May and somehow I don't see an end in sight. Just what we need, crazy drunk mountain men with fireworks!
Well unfortunately, Lucianna had a tougher day than normal. She did not get around very easily and requested to be carried frequently today. At one point she was scooting along on her bottom since I think getting up and down was just too difficult but hey, scooting is pretty fun! Her spirits were good; she was joking, being silly and having fun playing with Bella. She spent a lot of time sitting and playing in one spot.
I chose to work from home today, and got quite a bit done which was great! I did this so that I could "bank the holiday" in case I need a day off for a doctors appointment down the road. Lucianna's condition has made me think of a lot of things, including how little sick time I get at my job and how fast it can be spent with a situation like this. Daddy had to work today...so it was just like any other day for us. Sort of a boring day but doing anything active was just not in Lucianna's capacity, not to mention, it was about 98 degree's out! Blaauuacck! Fireworks? Well my girls are usually asleep by 8:30pm, but next year, come hell or high water, we will see fireworks together as a family! I am so excited to see their expression with the first burst in the sky!
Tomorrow makes 5 weeks since her symptoms started to appear and quite frankly, they can disappear any time - because I am done!!! I hope tomorrow proves to be a more comfortable and active day for her - I miss seeing her run.
Have a safe rest of your holiday...fireworks are ending here soon. Hooray!
