Sunday Journal: Doctors and the Computer Interface Misappropriation

Monday morning was horrible. Sometime during the night Microsoft stole Windows 7 and replaced it with Windows 10.

WTF Bill Gates??? What a dreadful thing to do on a Monday! Well…any day of the week, really. I am not happy with you sir!

The rest of our week was slow and rather quiet. We took lots of walks around the neighborhood. The boys played outside and worked on some schooling. Sparkles slowly began to show some signs of improvement. She tires very easily and is still very ill. She received a get well card from one of her aunts this week and it just brightened her day. She carried it around for hours and it is still sitting at her spot at the table.

I took Sparkles to see our new family doctor this week. He is wonderful and didn’t want to wait for Sparkles to see a specialist to begin tests. He spent lots of time asking questions and ruled out several possibilities already. The nurse had a hard time collecting blood samples because she is so dehydrated. I’ve noticed that Sparkles is trying harder to stay hydrated after that experience. The doctor also sent us home with a five gallon bag of sampling equipment to bring in tomorrow…and I’ll spare you the details. I am glad a friend recommended this doctor to us. We’ll be able to go to the

specialist’s office with the results from these tests and get answers and possibly a diagnosis much sooner. We love out new family doctor…who just happened to have been homeschooled!!! Sadly, we did learn that Sparkles has lost ten percent of her body weight since her trip to the emergency room…in eleven days. Frightening. We also got a call this week and her appointment with a specialist was moved up to June 21st.

Good night

For those of you who have been praying for her–Thank you so very much!!

I haven’t any big plans for this week. I plan for the boys to continue with some schoolwork…math and such. I am considering getting Oldest started on his science for seventh grade. We could do some one on one time together and get him prepared for working and learning on his own. Dr. Wile suggested this method to me when I asked about teaching science at the middle grade levels. I can also spend more time with Littlest too

as he learns to read. I had lots of plans for group learning over the summer but I think I will switch over to one on one time with each kiddo. Sparkles can rest this summer. She has participated in the art and nature journaling this week and even wrote a little essay on her trip to the emergency room. I will simply let her choose when she can work on schooling. She tires out rather quickly.

I’ve spent time reading this week and working in my art journal. I’ve nearly completed the Sarah Mackenzie book and plan to begin The Living Page by Laurie Bestvater next. I finally came up with an idea for my art project for the Brave Writer retreat and plan to do some sketches to work on how to approach the idea. Maybe I’ll have something to show next week…

  1. So sorry to hear about your daughter’s health struggles. ((Hugs)) Praying you get answers soon and that you feel God’s arms holding your family during this stressful time! His eye is on the sparrow and He sees where you are … He sees you!!

  2. It’s certainly hard to “like” this blog because of your sweet daughter’s pain. We at RBC are praying constantly at prayer meeting and Sunday School. Many have adopted this little girl into our hearts at Ridgewood Baptist Church, praying in earnest. (If you send me your address via my email or Facebook message page, one of our members has a gift for Sparkles and I’ll send it asap.) How we wish we could do more. ❤
    By the way, do you want to know another coincidence in our lives? Not only does your little boy look like our grandson but your cat looks identical to our old cat Mickey. Blessings,

  3. Hi Audria, I’m sorry, I have only just been catching up with my blog reading just this week (for long and complicated reasons). I hope your daughter is on the mend now, and putting on some of the lost weight. I will be praying from here on out that she improves daily. I hope you find some answers, because not knowing is hard. Much love xxx
