Thank you so much for all your prayers, well wishes and emails. You girls are just THE best support! Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!!! Dad is doing well, still in Hospital. They did some tests this morning and think one of his arteries is very narrow (a genetic thing). Both his dad and brother died of heart attacks at 50YO, and dad is now 68. He definatly lives a better (healthier) lifestyle than them, and at least he is now under the eye of a cardiologist, so as soon as anything is not quite right they can whip him in to check it out. Luckily they have private cover and a fantastic hospital very close by. Anyway, he will have to go into Melbourne to the Alfred Hospital for some more tests, so I'll keep that posted. Please continue the prayers - Thanks!
Both Brett and I were up early this morning, tip toeing around the house so as not to wake our house guests. LOL they woke up not much later anyway. Crack ups those boys! Unfortunatly Ethan broke Jonathans MP3 player so we have to get him a new one... Brett's found a few on ebay he's watching. I know nothing about MP3 players. Also unfortunatly Jonny woke up with a tummy bug, apparently Ash had it prior. Yucko! Nothing like feeling sick, and being in someone elses house. I had to take off really early so we said our goodbyes and left them here to take their time before heading back to Beechworth. Can't wait to go visit them (when their new house is built)
Had to have Liam at Frankston Hospital for speech at 9.00, made it with two minutes to spare. Was a bit worried what the receptionist would be like if I was actually late! She was, for the record, very nice this morning. Lisa, Liam's speechy was wonderful! I know a few people who have seen her - and Jody she said to tell you she is now married! :) Liam did so well. Got all his F words right straight off, got them all in phrases, and even got three in one sentence! Little bit of homework to do this week and next time we will start a new letter :) Lisa works in a very similar way to Jenni, so it's great. And early morning was a great time for Liam (concentration wise). We were back home by 9.45. Liam suddenly became very cranky and clingy afterwards. He's had a cold for a few days now, but he was not happy. I finally convinced him to have a little nap before kinder. He went down on my bed at 12.00, by 1.00 he was still out cold, so I left him to sleep and put Ethan down too. Won't hurt to wag kinder for the day. They both woke at 4.30! All afternoon with both boys asleep. It was great, they obviously needed it as they are not well. I managed to finish editing a photo shoot, but still need to proof it. Will do that tomorrow, tonight I'm off for an early night with DH.
My sister is going to have the boys tomorrow. I don't know what to do about work. Obviously it's too much for mum and dad to have the boys. If I take a sick day tomorrow, he'll expect me to work a day extra to make up for it. Brett is off for another ski trip tomorrow, his last as he starts his new job next week! New job you say? Yes I didn't blog it earlier. He's still with the same company, but is no longer going to rep. He'll be the manager of the branch closest to our house! It will take him about 2 minutes to get to work (and should take 2 minutes to get home too DH!!! LOL) It was (another) one of those things that 'no one' is supposed to know about until it becomes finalised... but 'everyone' does LOL. So I thought I was best just not to say anything on here.
OK back to my job. I think I'll try and have a little chat with my boss; be honest with him and just tell him the troubles with mum and dad etc. I'd like to run the idea past him of finishing at maybe 3.00 or even 4.00 just to releive the pressure of that 4-6 'witching hour'. He's off for a holiday to Vietnam in September, so I won't leave before then anyway.
Also on the topic of work. I asked for two in trays. Previously Son and I has shared the one, and he has so much crap in there I could never find the work I was supposed to have completed etc. Had to laugh yesterday when I turned up at work to find two in trays... a full one and an empty one. Guess which one was mine :) Yep, the empty one... and it was empty again when I left. Will probably be full of post-it notes in the morning though! Ahhhh!
My five things I'm thankful for today:
1. Great hospitals and medical staff for my dad
2. Living in this day and age, with life saving technology available
3. Beautiful emails from loving and caring friends
4. New friendships
5. My boys sleeping for a few hours today
