Life keeps moving on. :)

This afternoon Maggie will get half of her immunizations - either 3 or 4.  These are the ones that a newborn would get.  She will get the other half in a couple of days.  Then in 2 months she'll get another group and so on and so on......  I told her about it and she seemed fine.  But that was around lunch time.  We'll see when we get closer to the apt.  Oh, and the rest of us have been told (by her oncologist) to get the flu shot.  Luckily, they have been able to combine the flu shot and the H1N1!

So, since this apt is right before supper time....crock pot to the rescue! :)  I am making one of the fam's favorites and oh so easy!  Cut up potatoes, cut up smoked sausage, and 2 or 3 cans of green beans.  LOVE IT! 

I was doing my Beth Moore study on Esther.  She writes that "Satan's most effective tactic with yours truly has been to trap me in mental torment".  Yes we are to take our thoughts captive and to think on positive things.  How true, that when we don't do that, we become captive to those negative thoughts. 

So, Maggie continues her journey to normal life.  On a side note, she didn't get to go to Library Story hour because she has been pretty disrespectful and disobedient.  I would have kept her home from church last night but I don't like to use church as a consequence.  Oh AND I finally got her to take a nap.  Hopefully that will help us all! :)


  1. So how did Maggie's shots go?

  2. She only had to have 4 shots total b/c they combined different ones together. In 2 months she will have more shots - just like a newborn has a series of shots over the course of a year plus.

    Jared had his flu shot first and was upset as he sat on the table but was fine while Rod and I got ours.

    Then it was Maggie's turn. I am not sure that the nurse found the spot where the magic cream was AT ALL. She is the nurse at the Family Doc.s office so she really doesn't have experience with it. Maggie started squirming and crying and with each shot she would scream louder and longer. I turned and looked at Jared. He was on floor with his head leaning on a chair and his face in his hands crying. I didn't think it would affect him quite so much. He really has a tender heart.

    Maggie's leg was hurting this morning. But we convinced her to go to school and I never heard her whine about it again.

    As difficult as it was to give the kids shots when they were babies, I think it is harder as kids since they remember it.

    Thanks for asking Steph! :)

  3. Awww...poor Maggie. And Jared! I agree, shots are more difficult the older they get. 4-year old shots are bad enough, I can't imagine having to get them all over again.

    Hopefully the magic cream will work better next time.

    Thanks for the update.
