My mom ROCKS!!!!! She asked me a couple weeks ago where I was going to be seeing Twilight, and I thought that she was just making conversation. Then I get an email from her telling me that I need to make sure I get a package that she sent to Joe and Lacy's house. Then I get a phone call AT Joe and Lacy's house from my mom, asking if I got the package. Really I am thinking this whole time that maybe it is something for Christmas that was easier to mail to Florida. So the Lowry's checked their mail and this shirt is what arrived from my mom!!!!!! I LOVE it!!!!! Thank you mom!
All I can say about this movie is WOW! I have been waiting a long time for it to come out and I am very impressed with the job they did making it. Edward could not have been more perfect, and I am even more in love with him now. He can have my neck any day :-) I was just a little obsessed with the story before (ok, alot!), but now I think I am even more. I can't stop thinking about it!!!!
I went with Lacy and Sharyl. Poor Natasha got whatever is going around Gainesville and couldn't come. She can write her own blog about bodily functions :-) Sorry the picture of us girls is sideways. I am too tired to switch it. Thank you girls for coming with me ... what a great night!
UPDATE ON EVAN
So many of you know that Evan stopped baring any weight on his legs back in June. With the socialized medicine it is next to impossible to get tests and see specialists in a timely matter. It has been long enough now and we are, to say the least, a little frustrated! So we figured that since we are in the states, we would try and get tests done while we are here. I contacted our old pediatrician, and they have taken some of their personal time to help us!
So far, we have had X-Rays of his hips that have ruled out hip dysplasia and wearing of bones. Today we had an MRI of his entire body! I knew he would have to be sedated, which is always scary for a mother. What I didn't expect is that he would be in the MRI machine for 2 full hours! Wow, I was sure happy that Natasha was willing to sit with me in the waiting room. (This was before she was puking her guts out). I only broke into tears once the whole time. If she wasn't there I think it may have been worse for me. Thank you Natasha for giving me that support!
We won't get any of the results until Monday, when we have an appointment with the Pediatrics Neurology department.
This is a picture of Evan in the recovery room! He kept trying to rip everything off of him. Especially the IV. All he wanted to do was eat his IV tube or rip it out of his hand. The best part is that when he woke up he looked up at me, reached his arms hi, and with a smile on his face said "Mommy, Mommy". Nothing beats that ... not even Edward!
