Vanessa Checks In (Photostory)
Vanessa is getting ready to take the kids to school. Then she's off to work until her 2pm doctor's appointment.
"Did you put your homework in your book bag?" (Vanessa)
"Yesss momm." (Tyler responds exasperated)
"I'm not sure I like your tone." (Vanessa)
"Sorry, but you already asked me if my homework was in my bag." (Tyler)
"I was just making sure because last week you forgot your homework twice." (Vanessa)
"Here hold your lunchbox. I have to get our friends caught up on what's happening." (Vanessa)
"Hey guys, it's the Morrisons. We've missed you terribly. I thought I would get you caught up on what's going on. I know many of you are worried because you haven't heard from me in awhile. That was partially due to my power supply burning out on my laptop. I had to order another one which took over a week. It arrived yesterday and we are back in business."
"As for my health, I am doing much better. The beauty of messing up my arm is my doctor had to give me permission to walk more on my leg since I couldn't use two crutches. So I am walking without the crutches about 15% of the time. I'm still not trying to overdo it. I don't think my arm is broken, because I've been able to use it. I'm no longer wearing the arm sling. I was supposed to have a cat scan, but there were missteps made by the imaging center and I postponed the cat scan. I'm in the process of getting it rescheduled at a different facility. Today I am headed to the oncologist to see how my numbers are." (Vanessa)
"Excuse me for a minute." (Vanessa)
"You can't have it." (Tyler)
"Excuse me. I need you two to be quiet a little while longer. Mommy's almost finished." (Vanessa)
"She keeps trying to take my lunchbox." (Tyler)
"Tyler, relax. You don't have to yell at her. Stand over there until I finish. Come here Alicia." (Vanessa)
"Sorry about that. As you can see, the kids are still keeping me busy. Anyway, as I said, I am doing better, and as long as my arm holds up, I will be back to blogging regularly starting this week." (Vanessa)
"Everyone else in Morristown is anxious to see you guys. They have all continued with their busy lives, so they will have to get you all caught up soon. Take care. I have to get these kids to school before they pluck my last nerve. Toodles." (Vanessa)
Hey guys, it feels great to be blogging again. Also feels great to have my laptop working again. As mini me said, I am doing better. I did have sticker shock when I saw how much they charged to put the rod in my leg. Surgery and four days in the hospital cost $235,291.54. ISN"T THAT CRAZY? When my arm saw that, I think it immediately got a little better. Just think, two rod surgeries and I'll have half a million dollars worth of work done to my body. And I don't even get any super powers! Luckily I have good health insurance and the part I have to pay is fairly reasonable, in comparison to the total. Still pretty criminal in my opinion. See you guys soon!
