Busy Times Make for Busy Lives

Yikes, I can't believe it's been so long since I have posted.  Let's see, school has started and we have gotten over the hump and back into the routine.....that's the hardest part, you know!   Seth is getting along well in his Pre-K class and has taken up a new interest in drawing.  All of a sudden, I see all these stick figures all over my refrigerator.  Seth has also had a recent bout of swimmer's ear....from the bathtub...yes you read that right.  Seth has had 2 sets of tubes and has one remaining tube in one of his ears.  We still put earplugs in his ears for bath and swimming.  One night, the earplug fell out when we were washing his hair, and water got into his ear.  It was still hurting him the next morning so off to the doctor we went.  Soccer season is starting and Rob is planning to coach Seth's team again.  I think soccer will be more meaningful for Seth this year, with him being a little older.  Maybe not so much rolling on the ground and hitting teammates.

I know this post is all over the place, but I would like to put in a prayer request for my best friend, Tammy Curtis.  Tammy suffers from kidney failure and has been on dialysis for a year.  For some reason her blood is still not being cleaned as it should be. This causes her hemoglobin to go down, she becomes very tired, and she has to get blood transfusions every so often.  The doctors are unsure as to why this is happening, but are willing to take some steps to find out. Tammy is having her spleen removed tomorrow.  She has been told that her spleen is enlarged and it is causing her some pain.  We are hoping and praying that this will help the issue of her hemoglobin going down.  Please, please say a prayer for Tammy and her family tomorrow.
