sickness, Christmas and pups

It’s been a wild ride the past 4 days and nights. Christmas Eve Eve, Eden began waking up in a cold sweat screaming! Not just screaming but like someone was cutting her legs off screaming. I’d get to her and have to rub her joints, her knees, hips and ankles and she’d get back to sleep. To only as I laid down wake me up again in the exact same way. This has gone on for 4 nights. The fever is back, on again off again. They said she doesn’t have RA or JA,but her joints swell, the pain is horrible, they are red..I just don’t know.  Her feedings are down as well, I can already begin to see the bones sticking out again. Called her regular Dr and she is sending us to Vandy Ortho..which means I am now up to 9 specialists that criss cross all over Middle Tn.  Somedays it’s almost 2 hours just to get to one of her Dr’s and that is one way.

Which leads me to our next venture. Hubby and I have been talking moving. We love where we live.. we really do, and with Hubbies job he can work anywhere here as long as we keep the same area code. Problem is, to get to some of the specialists Eden requires means long drives, long hours there, then love drives back. It’s’s alot on a mommy who is already sleep deprived and a little girl who doesn’t feel good and if it’s a day she feels really bad then it’s just too much period. One option would keep us with this current company and relocate us back to Florida..which is not something I personally like the idea of .  Sorry everyone..we love and miss our people back there..but so sick of the state..the heat, hurricanes and a 400 dollar electric bill! The other option would take us North, back to Philly where Hubby is from. He has family there which is a plus we’d love Eden to grow up near family, CHOPs is there….it’s up in the air. Alot would have to change for that move to happen.

Christmas, minus her not feeling great, we just worked around the bad spells. Christmas Eve Eve,  we went to our local Tractor Supply Company (I told you we live in the sticks) where they had Santa and two reindeer. We learned alot about them like they want oatmeal not carrots on Christmas!

We made Christmas cookies all day Thursday, watched some tv, set out some cookies and milk for santa..and Oatmeal for the reindeer.

The puppy was brought home late on Christmas Eve ..he’s soo adorable..Eden was very surprised. She got a great remote control car that she loves to chase the other dogs with lol, the puppy and the handy manny tool bench..oh and make up..that was a last second request lol. Hubby was surprised with a decked out Wii and a bow and arrow he wanted (He thinks he’s going to hunt)?? I have a new Camcorder so I will try and upload some video to this thing If I can figure out how lol.

Now on to planning her big 5th birthday party Winter extravaganza lol.

Hope all had a Merry Christmas!!

    I’m so sorry that Eden is having such a horrible time but it sounds like you made the best of a scary situation. Sounds like you had some good fun too! The pics are adorable and Eden looks happy& as sweet as can be!!! Didn’t know that about reindeer either. Puppy is so cute too!

    I think moving to Philly would be a power move for you guys. CHOP is supposed to be incredible and family is irreplacable (not that you asked for my opinion). Sounds like you need some control in your life and it’s not happening in a little town that doesn’t accomodate a kiddo like sweet Eden.

    LOL I love your opinion Debbie:)
    I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas! I’m sure Amelia made out like a bandit lol. I would in some ways be more at peace with the Philly move but alot would need to happen in the next 6 months for that to transpire. I have two good friends from college who are in CT and work in Manhattan, I was just thinking yesturday..wouldn’t it be fun to take the Septra train into NYC, have coffee, go to the big Toy stores..just girl days. Haven’t had that in a very long time. Eden’s current agent is pushing for it as well. Though we have backed off for a while on the modeling until she is healthier, they keep saying there is some great Kids agencies up there.

    I am huge on family. Not having much of it around when I was growing up, I really wanted that for Eden. I want her to know her Puerto Rican side as much as her “White chick” side lolol. I want those big Christmas and get togethers…wishing and hoping.

    oh one more reindeer fact I didn’t know..if you get HAVE to get another! They have to live in packs of two or more. If one is left alone or one of the group dies, the other will grieve it’s self to death. You only have a very small window of oppertunity to get another to see if it will bond. If it doesn’t..both could die.
