California was great. Akila did really well. While I was there, my best girl friend Juli, who is also my boss at the dance studio, had a baby. Baby is healthy, Juli ended up in the ICU with blood pressure complications, for 3 days. Kind of freaky. I was in town for 3 days before Michael and I took a trip to New York City that I kind of surprised him with.
During these 3 days, was when Juli was in the ICU- which meant work was crazy, and I was stressed, doing work, and preparing to travel, as I was winding down from traveling. Too much to write about , not enough time. Juli is fine now, and her baby girl, Hadley, is beautiful. What a blessing.
New York City was awesome, and just the break from reality that we both needed. We saw Jersey Boys on Broadway. Walked Central Park, went to Ellis Island, went to the 9/11 museum, ate a lot, and had a really nice time. It was a great time. Three nights, Thurs-Sun. Michael's Brother Dan, and wife Tara, watched the kids, mainly Tara as Dan was out of town most of the time. God bless Tara, what a blessing they are to our family! We really needed a break.
Imani is having surgery next Tuesday. She has always had nose bleeds, and they have been coming more frequently and she has become more annoyed with them lately. She has really large blood vessels in her nose so they said that a nasal cautery is basically the only thing that would stop them as their nuisance nose bleeds. So she chose to take care of it. It is a short procedure, but for kids, it is so painful, that they put them under. This is so weird, as Imani is my only kid who is always healthy, never has had an issue, never has had to go to the Dr., so it is kind of weird. The insurance company doesn't even know she exists other than for her physicals. Zeke basically has the same problem, so we may have the same thing done for him some day as well. I am sick of washing blood out of sheets 3 times a week at least and out of their clothes constantly. Not to mention getting calls from the school nurse all the time.
So that is a little update, more later.
