We didn't wake up until 8 am this morning. It was so dark and rainy that Molly didn't know it was so late. She is my alarm clock and gets up as soon as it is light.  Not my preference!

We are now a member of Go Docs Go. They called at 4 pm Thurs. and said they would be there between 10 and 1. I said okay - when. She said tomorrow. Oh. They said they were coming for an evaluation to see if he was eligible. Two ladies came, one dr. and one assistant. She asked questions and typed in her tablet. Then the asst. took his blood pressure, listened to his heart. The other one cleaned out his ears and cut his toenails. Weighed him with their scales and said they would be back next month! Okay then. They will replace all his drs. unless I want him to still go to them. They will refill his meds, give flu shot, take blood and can do an ultra sound, xrays and EKG here at home. They will do wound care and post op care here also. So I am happy we are finally able to get some help for him here. He let them do whatever they wanted and was so good about it. The only drawback is that they call the day before and say they will be here the next day. They will also cancel if an emergency comes up.  That's okay if it is just a wellness visit. He did fall out of bed Thurs. night. It took a half hour to get him up again. I don't do it, he has to. It just takes a while for him to figure out what to do. Doesn't seem to get hurt so all is good.

This is the card I made for our son's birthday next month. This is the first time ever I am so far ahead! I used an embossing folder, viva gold in blue and lavender and of course, a crazy bird. I typed in the sentiment and used a Lawn Fawn bubble die. The inside says Go On and Celebrate from Mama Elephant. Be kind to one another.

  3. I'm so happy you got the care at home worked out, Brenda. I'm sure he's more comfortable in his own environment so is likely to be way more cooperative with the doctor than at the ED. Such a darling card for your son--will surely make him smile!

  6. So happy this doctor situation seems to be working out for ya'll. Will make it easier on you so that you don't have to take him out for checkups at least. And good to know if there is an emergency, you can still get him to his own drs. I know that must be a big relief to your worry load. Love the CB on the embossing. The colors look great, and it's just cute as cute can be! Don't you just love the goofy look on these birds? Your son will love this one. TFS & Hugs
