On the Bus

Mollie made it onto the bus this morning... as far as the rest of the day, we'll just have to wait and see. She was really complaining of pain in her hips and kind of limping around the house, but I wonder how much of that was just her being uncertain about going back to school.

It is so, so hard to tell when pains are really something to worry about (bone/hip pain can also be a symptom of AVN or relapse) and when they are just normal kid things.

We had a nice weekend. Mollie and Lucy played and played and played. Matt and I took turns running errands and hanging out with the kids. Yesterday, Mollie played at Bella's house (and I visited with her parents) all afternoon; Bella's parents brought her a Cinderella playset from Disneyworld and that kept the girls engaged for a quite a while.

My mother-in-law is undergoing hip replacement surgery today, so we are thinking about her and praying that it goes very smoothly. Mollie is looking forward to picking out flowers to send...


  1. Maybe Mollie was having sympathy hip pain for her Grandma Janet? ;) Glad they're doing well-- love the lollipop photo!

  2. Super cute pic!
    I know what you mean about pains, I worry about random pains all the time.

  3. sweet photo. i hear your worries and wish them away!
    about your comment on my blog...not at school, but we have been thinking to take her to one anyway.

  4. yikes, do you have one of those strollers?

  5. I love all of you guys. Happy that Miss Mollie is back in school. I know that she loves it.
    Bless you all!

  6. Yes, we have 2 of those strollers. I'm still not clear on this amputation thing- my kids are never near the stroller when I'm opening/closing it. I guess I should be worried about my own fingers?
