More Sickness, More Snow

I've come down the cold and it has settled in my voice box. So, hooray! My voice sounds like I've been smoking for 100 years, at the very best. Besides some stuffiness and the overabundance of mucous, I'm feeling pretty good, miraculously.

We've got more snow falling as I type. I'm just going to proclaim this the weirdest winter ever.

Darsie is scheduled to have her Botox injections on Wednesday and I have received absolutely no paperwork or instructions from the hospital. I need to call them, so with my croaking voice, this should be fun and entertaining. She is complaining of ear pain this morning. She has always been so healthy but these last couple of months sure have been sickly for her/us. Her foot is really starting to draw in, though, so I'm hoping and crossing fingers and braiding hair that she is able to have the shots done. She needs this so bad. We need this to work. For at least a bit.

This has been a sickly year for us too and I hate it! I do hope they're able to go through with Darsie's injections. A little boy around here just got some and it's made SUCH a difference.

Drat on the snow and the voice--feel better. We were going to put away our salt but then we decided that was definitely ASKING for snow, so we didn't.

Max is getting Botox on his hands on Monday. I hope Darsie's goes well, let us know!

Wishing you all the best for the botox injections.
Megan has had 3 lots (starting at 2.5years to 5 years) and had great benefits from it, we hope Darsie gets great results too!
Unfortunately for Megan she has grown resistant to it and as she has had a big growth spurt and just turned 6, she is now under a specialist in London (UK) for gait analysis and ,meeting the othopeadic surgeon with the plan of some sort of surgery next year. She is now unable to wear her AFO as it rubs her skin so sore as her foot is turning in too much.
She is still managing OK though and is just as determined as ever!
I will keep you posted our end, and hope Darsie gets good results from the injections. I will be thinking of you, and hope all goes well.
Best wishes,
Abi, Tony, Megan and Emily (from the UK)
