Monday's Musings...

Today was a day for us
to excercise patience and creativity
as we spent the vast majority of our afternoon
at the naval hospital to see the doctor.
Ally started to not feel very well
a few days or so ago
so today we went in for an appointment.

I was thankful that the children
were content looking through
our bag of books that we had brought
and playing quietly (well somewhat) with each other.
It seems that most public places nowadays
are either playing music or showing tv shows
that we do not have in our home or lives
so it is always a blessing to see
the children content otherwise.

They did an ekg in the doctor's office
and sent us to get some more blood work done.
We needed to linger around for quite some time
to wait for the initial results of the labs
so the children and I
went into the mini-store there
and picked up some waters and a snack
then headed outside to enjoy the weather
for an hour or so.
We had a nice time.

It was mostly hot, but there was an
occasional gust of wind that felt wonderful.
We spent time talking and snacking
and the younger ones enjoyed
running races, picking 'money leaves' from trees,
searching for birds' nests,
and listening to the different bird callings
(as well as listening and looking for the helicopter).
I was wishing I had my camera... but I didn't.

After an hour or so, we were able to head home,
as there was nothing alarming in her bloodwork.
The children were glad to go out in the backyard
and use the frisbee and new ball
that we bought over the weekend.
As I was making supper,
I learned an important new fact about our youngest...

I saw that she has the ability
to succeed in her attempts at climbing our fence.
I was glad to learn it before she crossed over!

Now we have finished supper,
the children are jumping and playing outside
while Ally is reading a book.
Bathtime and bedtime have come
so I am off to tend to my joyful duties.
I hope y'all have enjoyed your Monday!

I'm glad that you were able to make a good day out of a potentially "yucky" day.

That picture is adorable. My daughter was/is a climber too, so I never know what she's going to be climbing next.

I was sorry to hear that Ally hasn't felt well. But I am glad there was nothing alarming in her bloodwork.

How funny to see the little one climbing over the fence. That was a priceless picture for sure.

Praying for Ally here.

Loved the photo!

Hmmm, they couldnt give you a reason why she was starting to feel bad again? Did they check her thyroid levels again?

Devildog Wife ~ It's always a blessing when we can make the best out of any kind of day.
And never a dull moment with climbers... or children for that matter. ;o)

Kristi ~ We were glad there was nothing alarming/urgent in her bloodwork, too.
I just had to capture Carolynne on the fence. I thought it was so cute... though when she reached the top it was a little scary.

Pam ~ Thank you so much for your continued prayers. They are a blessing!

Mrs. Bowman ~ They do not know the reason. In addition to not feeling well, she has had an alarming amount of weight loss! They did check her tyroid levels, again. They are waiting for those results.

Greetings in the Name of the Lord!

I loved the picture. It reminded me of Anne of Green Gables for some reason... :-D

Karen said...

I'm not a doctor, but I've experienced thyroid problems that have taken over a year to get under control. It would not surprise me if her levels came back a little "off". I can always tell before I get the bloodwork to check. I'm continuing to pray for you all.
Love the picture of your little one! My grandson, Austin, is quite the little climber, too.
Glad you saw her before she got too far!

HsKubes said...

Ginny ~ Thank you. Perhaps it reminded you of Anne getting into a little mischief. lol

Karen ~ Thank you for sharing your experience. This is still new to us and I appreciate others' advice and comments. Thank you, too, for praying. That is a blessing!
I'm sure Austin must keep y'all on your toes. lol
I was glad I saw her before she got too far, too. *Ü*

I can't believe she can climb that fence. lol How funny. I'm sorry to hear that Ally isn't feeling to well. I pray that the rest of her test come back normal, and that she stops losing any more weight. This must be so hard.

HsKubes said...

Shereen ~ I thought it was kinda funny that she could climb the fence. I couldn't believe it at first, either. I had to take a 'double-take' to believe it.
Thank you for continuing to pray for Ally. I know the Lord is working and has a purpose. We appreciate you praying.
