After much prayer, research and counseling we opted for Hannah to get the H1N1. She got both it and the seasonal flu shot yesterday. I held my breath most of the night praying she'd not have any seizures. We gave her a klonopin when she went to bed just to have some added coverage. So far she's done fine. I just never know what to do...if she gets the shot, people could be right and it'll cause all kinds of problems. If she doesn't and gets H1N1 then it's very likely to seriously affect her because it's known to reak havoc on kids with health problems, etc. We just felt like our chances were better with the shot than without it.

Hannah's doing fine. She has a little bit of a cough but it seems to be allergy related. Her schools fall festival is today and I'd love to be able to take her. Hoping she gets to go.

Koolio has not been going to school with her but will be soon. Just some details to work out and he'll be with his girl again. She's going to be so glad to have her buddy with her. They are really bonding well. He's starting to seek her out more and more. He's definately a family dog to though. He loves his daddy and his brothers. LOL!

I was diagnosed with CFS and treatments are ordered. It may be a while before I can do them but when I can, I will. Thanks for praying for me and please continue to.

School Seizure

Hannah had her first TC at school today. They said that she began seizing in the hall way on their way to lunch. By the time I got there it was over and the EMT's had her ready to head to the hospital. They did have to administer the versed and it WORKED. I'm so happy about that. The teacher said it worked almost immediately. I'm very pleased with the way everyone handled the situation. Even to the phone call I got about the ordeal. I know that my girl is loved, cared for, and in good hands. Right now we're praying and trusting God for an uneventful night!

Happy Girl!

Hannah's done well lately.  Only mild seizure activity and no major illnesses.  Keep those prayers coming!  She's been a lot of fun lately.  I keep thinking back on how things were when she was on keppra and thank God over and over we were able to take her off that drug.  We have our happy girl back.  We attended both church services yesterday.  Last night one of the elderly ladies hugged her and told her that she was pretty and fat.  Hannah said, "I'm NOT fat!"  It was so funny.  When we got home she was talking to herself and she said, "How'd you get so big?....I growed stupid!"  I'm not sure where that came from but it was funny to me.  This morning she hugged me and said, "thank you Lord for another safe night".  Talk about putting things in perspective!

Koolio isn't in school right now.  We are working on it though and hope he will be soon.

We've got a lot of medical stuff going on.  Hannah and I both are back and forth to doctors, etc.  Someone was talking about the holiday's the other day and I groaned within.  I'm not ready for them and I won't be I'm afraid. 

Thanks so much for all the prayers and support.  We really really appreciate them!     

Some photos

Thought y'all might enjoy a few pictures. 

This is how we found Hannah the other night.  It was before bedtime but she was tired and gave it up early. 
She still had her princess shoes on. LOL!  Silly girl!

This is why Koolio is bordering on overweight.  His girl feeds him half her food.  It sure has helped with bonding but
we know we have got to figure a way around her feeding him.

Life is never dull

Life is never dull is it? I am pregnant. Had my tubes tied after Hannah's birth but 1 in 200 still get pregnant. I'm the one. I have a doctors appt. on the 22nd to check everything out. Make sure it's not ectopic, etc. I'm shocked but not unhappy. I'm worried but trying desperately to leave it in God's hands. When we told the boys Kyle said, "you know mom, it was starting to get a little boring around here..."

Hannah's doing well. Her personality is really shining lately. She is a mess. She enjoys cooking which has me worried. I do not feel like I can leave anything on the stove unattended anymore. So far she's gotten over all the illnesses that have hit her fairly easily which is a HUGE blessing. We just pray and pray constantly.

I have several appointments over the next few weeks. I see an infectious disease doctor on the 20th. Apparently when I was pregnant with Hannah I got mono and it was never treated. My body was under so much stress that I never recovered. Hopefully he can help me feel better. Then on the 22nd I go to the ob/gyn. Then again the last week of this month(not sure of the date) I go back to the DO that I just started seeing.

I also have a stress fracture in my right foot from when Koolio took off all of a sudden and wrapped his lead around my ankle. It hurts horribly. Ugggh! The only thing I can do is stay off of it as much as possible. I have to buy some crutches and a foot boot.

We're still waiting on results of Hannah's metabolic tests. As soon as the results start pouring in I'll be sure to let y'all know them.

I'm working to keep my spirits up. It's not easy, but I know God has this all in his control. Please continue to pray for us!

Off Duty Service Dog Fun

So, Friday Zachary takes Koolio to potty and this is the result. The cooler air and wet weather excited him beyong measure. At this point it was too late to do anything so I just let him have fun. He was a mess to clean up! Thought y'all would enjoy the pictures.

Metabolic geneticist

On Thursday we had Hannah's appt. with the metabolic geneticist. She ordered tons of tests and gave me instructions to have more done during our next hospitalization. No new information. Just went over history and talked about possible disorders, etc. It will be weeks, maybe months before we get results.

Hannah was sick towards the end of last week and thorugh the weekend. She was doing better by yesterday. Her teacher said she is doing good today. She's been a mess lately. This morning at school she took my cell phone and wanted to call her daddy. I let her. It was the cutest thing.
