Last night we ended up sleeping on the floor in the living room on a small mattress it wasn't to terrible. We woke up at 6am to get ready to leave for Bri and Bren's doctors appointments. We left by 6:40am and made the drive to the doctors getting there at 7:52am. We waited for them to open at 8am and then went in to sign in. We waited in the childrens waiting room and missed being called several times and had to have our chart put back up several times when Bri decided he had better go sit right next to them to hear us being called (they were saying the wrong name they were calling Brian but when he went up there they said it wasn't him turned out they wanted Brennen then several times later we somehow missed them again and then they called our full name and Brian went and they said 'oh we are going to put your chart back up so what really happened with the names I do not know). The doctor put Bri on the meds he was taking before since they seemed to help he just changed the dosage around. He told us that Bren has a lazy eye not a crossed eye so it will be fixable with therapy. He doesn't want to do glasses because he says it's hard for the kids to keep them on and it slows recovery because the eye doesn't have to work as much when they are on so he's sending him to a specialist for therapy and I will get excersizes to do with him at home. So yeay thats all good news I am so ready to start doing them now!!! However it's going to be a few weeks before we hear from the specialist so patience (which I am not good at especially with help right around the corner!).
After the doctors we went to Target where they sent hubbys perscriptions and we waited around for them to be done. We bought some fiber bars to snack on because we were all hungry and when we got in the car and were happily snacking away I decided to read the box and discovered that they had barley in them so I had to quickly take it away from Aidan who is very allergic to it he was very sad but vomit is not something I enjoy cleaning up! We then headed off again this time headed toward Aidans choir performance at an elderly care home.
On the way we swung by Borders and checked around. I found a book I want to buy what was the title? I can't remember! I was about a perscibing a natural cure to common illnesses. I looked through and found some really relevant stuff in it and so I'm going to check and see how much it is on Amazon when I actually get money again lol.
After borders we went to Mcdonalds and used my gift card to get us all lunch and then on to the choir performance.
We arrived still very early and luckily because this place was huge! It had so many buildings and no one knew where the concert was. We ended up going to several of them and asking because the main building had no idea. We found it at a little after 1pm so we had to wait until 1:30pm to get in. So we sat in the car with the kids. Can I just say that an entire day in a car with children and a second day at that is just a struggle on everyones part! I was so happy to leave hubby there with the other two while Aidan and I ran in to his concert. It wasn't a long concert only 20 minutes. By the time we got back to the car Bri was a little frazzled lol but I must say a lot better then he has been on some other days. I regretted not having a camera at the concert as I watched other mothers snapping pictures and Aidan looked so good in his white button down shirt and black slacks he really did a good job.
The second time I regretted not having a camera was on the way home. I was looking out the window when what did I see....a bald eagle!!!! We just finished a few weeks ago doing a lapbook about bald eagles and we googled them found a page tracking them and listened to their calls it was awesome!!! It was sitting in a tree in a pasture with cows milling below. Aidan was also excited (although who was more excited I can't tell, It's close!) I believe that was my first sighting yeay! Darn camera!
After we got home Bri checked out the camper and found out that it was the extension cord that melted and not the camper cord so yeay and easy fix. We will need a higher power cord and we are going to have to put in a new plug closer to the camper but I'm counting my blessings today and feeling wonderful!
I also must say that I have a wonderful friend and talked with her today and I feel so blessed to have met her! I am going over to visit with her on Friday and I can't wait :)
So today was a much better day and I am once again hopeful and I can't wait to get started on therapy for Bren!
I hope you all had a wonderful day!
