Well, little SR had a doctor's appointment Monday. The X-rays showed that her thigh bones are moving up to where they should be. SR suffers from bilateral hip dysplasia, which means that the balls of her thigh bones that normally rest in the socket part of the pelvis are not where they should be. Now her thigh bones are with an inch or so of where they should be. Seems like the surgery she had a few months ago that stretched the tendons in her groin worked better than we thought it would. Now if she can ever get out of her brace . . .
Pat has a birthday coming up soon (next month!). He'll be 13 years old. Geez, two teenagers in the house at the same time. Give me strength. Let's see, that makes the ages of the kids in the house 14, 13, 6, 4 and 2. Oy. And people wonder why I'm insane?
I have come to the conclusion that discussing politics in the house will not be conducive to my health. The Better Half is an Edwards supporter, and I am a hardcore Bush/Cheney supporter. Therefore, in the interests of continued mental and physical health, I hereby resolve not to discuss politics at home anymore. Religion is still allowed, since The Better Half and I are both Catholic. Can't be much variance there.
Like I've stated before, I don't want this to be a political forum. However, I can't help but be fascinated by the Kerry meltdown occurring lately. I swear, it's like watching a slow motion train wreck. The final result will be fascinating to watch.
