cr- - (rhymes with sap)

We forgot Mollie's appointment today. I thought it was next Monday and didn't bother to double check. I feel awful because it was a spinal tap appointment (her last one!). Medically, it doesn't make any difference when she has the LP, as long as it is this week, but I really do feel terrible for forgetting. Since the office was closed by the time we realized, we have to call first thing in the morning and see if we should bring her in tomorrow or schedule for later this week. Ugh.

We still have a million other things going on (still no official move date Nicola). I'm really stressed about moving, selling our house, etc. We are going to have to move twice: into a rental house until our house sells and then we will purchase a house. This weighs heavily. I have never been stretched so thin in my entire life. I don't know how we are going to make this move happen; I keep hoping the stars will align and things will just fall into place.

The good news is that Mollie and Lucy had a good first official day of summer vacation. They played in the pool, helped me do some painting, made a fort out of a big box we had, and ate pizza for dinner. My dad is here helping with the kids and I am really thankful for a little help!

Update: Mollie will go for her spinal tap on Thursday. Now I just have to remember to NOT give her methotrexate tonight (she it getting IT MTX during her LP on Thurs. so she doesn't get the oral MTX that week).


  1. Bummer, but like you said, no biggie! It's not like you don't already have 10,000 things on your mind. At least the girls have enjoyed themselves today.

    Praying that the transition will go smoothly and you will have worried for nothing.

  2. One appointment in nearly 2 years? Puh-leeze-- you still rock! Wish we could give them their first fish-- I had a betta in Hawaii and had to give it away when we moved. (I want another one just to name it Alpha :). Maybe we'll make it to CLT over the summer and can do so!!

  3. I agree, don't worry or feel guilty. And I wish I could help unstretch you. It WILL fall into place. Positive thought is powerful!

  4. Hang in there!!! Everything will work out!
