“Ah, September! You are the doorway to the season that awakens my
soul... but I must confess that I love you only because you are a
prelude to my beloved October.”
~Peggy Toney Horton
8th grade is going well. Jenny's logic class is particularly fun and she makes me laugh while she studies. Quote of the day yesterday, "ad hominem, red herring, you have to follow the rules people, or this is just a common quarrel!"
We went to King Richard's Faire last weekend with some friends, Rowan wasn't up to it, which made me sad, but Jenny got the tickets for her birthday and it wouldn't have been fair not to go. It was fun and festive and a feast for the eyes. I had always wanted to go and never made it. The joust was a hoot, there were so many beautiful things in the artisan booths I would have killed to have. We watched some pretty cool shows like a guy juggling fire standing on a ball.
On the Lyme front, Rowan is battling hard, sensory issues are insane and she is in pain and in bed a lot of the time. On the 6th week of 8 iv/orals protocol. We go back to NYC to Dr. Raxlen October 7th. She still has her sense of humor sometimes though. She dressed up her IV pole like a dementor from Harry Potter.
Jenna is responding to meds this time around, finally hitting her bartonella. She maintains, as always, her unique sense of humor.
Jenna: Yep, they are destroying my liver as we speak
It was 2 years ago last week that we mourned the loss of my beautiful sister in law, Becky.
It doesn't seem as if it could possibly be that long ago. Miss her still and always.
Our new kitty is a love, she is 8 and a complete cuddlebug. She high 5's. Also, she drools.
Arwen's eyesight and hearing are failing, she is getting old. How can I tell? She didn't even see it!
