Quickie!

Alice, Bella and I all had to have bloodwork this morning.  Poor Alice was very distressed, and I felt so sorry for her.  I was super impressed with Bella... she was visibly nervous but all she said was "Ow, ow, ow!" and didn't shed a single tear.  This is pretty amazing for her!

In the afternoon, I had to trek downtown for a parent interview appointment for my Lucy.  We are starting the process of psychological and medical testing to see if we can pinpoint what is going on, and how to best help her. The school did an evaluation about a year ago to qualify her for special education, but it wasn't nearly as involved.  The doctor thinks that the combination of fine motor skill delay and emotional issues points to a neurological problem.  Praying that they can correctly diagnose her, so we can know the BEST way to help her thrive.  I worry about her all the time... probably at least half of my day is consumed with thoughts about my Lucy.  I love her so much, and hate to see her struggle.

Just wanted to say I noticed you haven't been here the past few days. That is totally okay of course, haha, but I've missed reading about all the happenings with you guys. Hope Bella had a fantastic birthday and party. I got to talk to Alice on the phone the other day, and she told me a few of her favorite things, including chocolate and fries. :) Love you guys!
