The Slacker

Who me???

Who me???

Who me?  My daughter?  My son?  Hubby? (Not hubby)  I guess it is to be somewhat allowed during the summer so I’ll take responsibility.  Here’s a brief update.

After the trip last week, Jes was quite exhausted for about 2-3 days.  (Heck, we all were)  When she couldn’t take my yapping and complaining about her unbelievably disgusting bedroom, she perked up and did a two day major clean resulting in two full garbage bags full of junk.  How do teenagers do that?  Anyway, she’s better now and has even spent time at the neighborhood pool “networking” for baby-sitting jobs.

We went to the neurologist last week.  I SO  immensely enjoyed telling the doctor that, against his suggestion to take Jessie to a hospital to see a psychiatrist (because he couldn’t find the cause of the migraines) and through stubbornness and research we found that the migraines actually came from Neurally Mediated Hypotension – not depression.  HA!  I love it when things like that happen.  The physician’s assistant was thrilled that we found the culprit.  The doctor didn’t have much to say.  Maybe because he was WRONG.  Uh-oh.  Is my attitude showing?  Need to check that.  Seriously, I’m not debating that depression can result from having a chonic illness.  Everyone knows that it does.  However, if I’ve learned one thing in the past several years, it’s to trust your instinct and be an advocate!  That gut feeling is always worth investigating.

So, summer has begun.  Things are still a little busy, but a good busy.  We’re taking road trips to visit friends – always fun.

Have a great week.
