cause4design.com 2008 CalendarThe crew at one of the wonderful online forums have worked months putting together this project to help raise money for us!  So far they’ve sent about $500.00!

This  is a group that was touched enough by our story to band together to create a group that would create different projects to help out causes/families like our own. 

So for whatever a span of time they’ll be donating the profits of these Calendars to us. This is their first project and I’d like to see it succed and lead to bigger and better things for each of the 46 designers who worked on this project!

The Cost is $15.00 each and you can really tell most had a special thought when designing there page.

My little girl(s) have boys that like them!!! It’s been a tough couple weeks for Sara and I on the normal growing up stuff.

Nissa got card from a boy in the mail talking about how he has liked her since last year and he wrote her a poem based on the roses are red theme.  Nissa being the smart little whip that she is figured it out in 2 seconds flat… called him said thanks and the typical “see ya tomorrow at school”.

Then Ana yesterday came home talking about something similar… about how last week she got a candygram form a boy at school but didn’t put his name.  So we left it at that, she didn’t bring the tag and tossed it in the trash at school, typical forgetful Ana stuff.  But anyways back to yesterday, she said a couple girls told her that BoyX likes her and she turned around and here was this boy waving to her! So she waived back, turned around and went about her afternoon.  Then in her telling this story she’s says “I’m not ready for a boyfriend yet am I?”  I was in my office so Sara came down to tell me the story and she told me “I CAN’T HANDLE THIS ALREADY; I don’t want my babies to grow up.”

So the next couple days will continue to be interesting as Ana looks to find out more about this boy does not know. I have day dreams of her on a date seeing a movie expecting the boy to get his own popcorn…

On another growth note… one of my daughters got her first period 2 weeks ago… that was a desiaster as the other one was totally pissed off, grumbling ”I’m never going to frick’n grow, I’m never going to get my frick’n period and this frick’n sucks”. So Nissa is reading Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret , by Judy Blume and once she’s done we’ll have Ana read it. The girls have already had “the Talk” and “the Movie” and we had a kit put together for when this day finnally came along.

Meds and Notes

Not really sure where to start… Ana is doing well she has been on and off sick recently… each time she comes down with a cold she ends up being home for a week or so.  Her immune system isn’t quite up to snuff yet.  Her scar is nearly healed so she’ll let me post something once it’s not so pink… she has been great since the bandage for her mole removal came off but you can tell she’s still getting used to it.

We also met with a school vision specialist last month.  She was very impressed with our little girl, she did a great job of advocating for herself and was able to explain with great detail what her issues were. The plan is to get her to touch type so at somepoint we can get her an ultra portable laptop and she can take and do her homework on that.  today she had due a “wellness plan” for a class and I doubt I could have gotten away with that little she had.  But in the paragraph or 2 she would have a on page you could see where her eye’s would just give out and it was increasingly difficult to write more.  SO the idea is to have her on one machine that would work well for her.  Something useful for small hands and good battery life.
The other modifications have been working well… she does math homework sheets on 11x17inch paper! Vs. the standard 8.5×11 that would normally be used.  Most kids would have a couple issues with using something so different from their classmates but for whatever reason she just goes with it.  IN another post I’ll explain more of what’s going on with her eye sight and catch everyone up…

It looks like Ana will be starting Growth Hormones, so long as her Next MRI turns out well. She was really disappointed when she found that out… She wanted to start a while ago.  She wants and is ready to grow… All the test show that her body is producing what it needs it’s just not making it to the areas where it’s used.  So were going to see if an artificial source works.  Anniessa currently has a couple inches on her older sister.
