Ten on Tuesday.

1. Clearly, three sets of measuring cups will not be enough. Maybe I'll start a collection and hang 'em all over my kitchen walls.

2. Unfortunately, the awesome book, The Help, was ready for me at the library right around the time we got home from the hospital. It truly is wonderful, but I am up to my eyeballs in diabetes and Christmas, so I'm not making the progress necessary to finish the book by Friday's due date. I suck.

3. Alla's dance recital is next Thursday. I am so over this dance class. The recital is at seven o'clock. Hello, she's four? She's probably one of the oldest, too, so some of the little girls might be three. What three or four year old is at their best at seven o'clock? Not to mention the little brothers that have been watching rehearsals since September but will probably have to opt out of the real deal.

4. Four is the number of injections Fisher gets each day.

5. The number boxes are up and running! I love how it gets Alla out of bed for the month of December! Today's treats were books for each.

6. I should have called this post 'Whatever number I get to on Tuesday.'

7. I have no pictures to go with this post.

8. We check Fisher's blood sugar before we go to bed, has to be around ten. On a good night, we can all then sleep the rest of the night knowing his levels are in a good range. We had five of these good nights in a row, and then last night he was low at one in the morning, so we had to give him juice and check again in 30 minutes.

9. Who likes to drink juice at one in the morning?

10. This weekend is Disney on Ice! Alla is going to FLIP. I simply cannot wait to see her face. I wish I could video. Her, just her.

so sorry for what you are going through with fisher....

Megan said...

Wow, four injections is a lot of a little one. Unfortunately he will get used to it. It will get easier for you soon. I can't wait to hear how Alla reacted. I can almost hear her all the way here in Colorado! I hope you have a grand time.

Disney on Ice sounds just like what the dr has ordered I do believe for you my dear friend. Love you and praying this transition gets a bit easier for Fisher I can imagine getting checked and poked isn't fun for a 20 month old.

Katie said...

Oh how fun! Kelsea would also FLIP! Is Ron going to that event? I just don't think I could get my hubby to participate.

I totally get the recital thing. We actually opted out of Kelsea participating in the recital. I had the opposite problem. It was meant for stay at home Moms, who could take their kid to recital practice all week long in the afternoon. AGH!

I'm so sorry that you all are dealing with this right now-or at all.

I heard The Help is excellent and I am looking forward to reading it too.

Samantha said...

The Help is WONDERFUl. Blow off Christmas and finish it. :)

Have an awesome time at Disney on Ice! You know that a lot of the little girls dress up, right? Just in case Alla would be upset if she isn't dressed up. :)

Sara said...

Glad you are getting some sleep. I agree with the dance recital. 7!!!! are you kidding me? Remember it is just one day. Survive it and tackle the next. Love you and praying for you guys daily.

Thinking of you friend.

Cathy Bolander said...

So sorry you are having such an ordeal in your life. But you are such a strong person with such a great husband so I KNOW you will get through this & Fisher will appreciate all that you have done to keep him healthy. So glad Alla gets a fun evening all to herself.

I bet Disney on Ice will be a moment she (and you) will never forget!
