Good Morning

It's 3 a.m. and I give up on sleep from coughing and hacking. I tried Theraflu Cold relief the night before but it caused major sleeplessness. I'm so thankful the rest of the house is quiet. Mason looked at me worried yesterday and asked if I was going to be o.k. He just melts my heart. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving week. Mason did get tired at the Christmas lighting and fell asleep on the couch as the last guest was leaving. He said he had a headache during the party, but never really complained. On Sunday; he wanted to visit the Target toy section to check out the latest Bakugan and Bionicles. I've turned him into a Target kid; in Memphis that was our get-away from the Ronald McDonald house. Maverick insisted on pushing his brother in the wheelchair; thankful he did not run over anyone, racing Mason as he were in the Grand Prix. This weekend the boys played so well together; and Mason had a great week. His speech was the only thing I really noticed and a few times difficulty swallowing. For the most part we had a restful and relaxing weekend.
The MRI scheduled December 4 has been rescheduled for mid-January. We decided that after the holidays would be much better; we were told we could wait until this time. And Mason is against flying; so we will hopefully have good weather for January.
I really want to thank everyone again, I really need to work on thank yous!! Just know we really appreciate you!

Try Mucinex. It seems to work pretty well. I hope you ended up getting some rest. If not last night, hopefully you can fit in a nap today. Your Christmas Lighting party was wonderful! Thank you for including us! I hope you are feeling better soon.

don't worry about thank yous. Spend time getting better and with your family. I don't think anyone expects a thank you. There will be plenty of time for that when the children are grown and you are retired and waiting for the grandchildren to come over:0)

Love you...Carrie

Griffin loved using the scooter chairs at Target and the grocery store last summer when his leg was broken...even more fun than being pushed!

Got to love Target!!! Have you tried Tylenol Sinus? It really works well and they have an a.m. and p.m. doses. Get some rest! Even lay on the couch. Take care of you mom! Glad to hear it was a wonderful and quiet weekend for all. Sometimes quiet is perfect!!! :)
