Off To See The Wizard

Raiden and I are off to CHEO tomorrow.

It's our second trip for some diagnostic testing. It's really bittersweet. We've been before, so the anticipation is less. The specialist's very confident, almost-absolute certainty about Rai's kidney problem has dwindled into a guess about a condition that might be masked by something else.

I am grateful that we are close enough to have easy access to the best doctors. I know everyone there is as fast and gentle as humanly possible. We're definitely in good hands. Heck, we've got our own personal Child Life Specialist at our disposal for the day. It's the Chateau Laurier of hospital experiences.

I guess I'm just having a hard time getting my head in the game. My inner cheerleader is not raring to go this time. Rai's resigned to go, but not happy about it. The idea of getting rid of his stomach pain is not holding any water with him. He's tired of the effects of his antibiotics.

Anyway, onward and upward. I'm turning the PC off for the day as I'm not really into this game today either. I wish it would stop raining and snowing. I'm off to make a busy day for us. I'll check back in sometime this weekend. Over and out.

I hope all went well at the doctor. As always, your family is in my thoughts and prayers. I'll send some extra special positive thoughts since it sounds like you can use it!

I just checked my standing in the polls. I figure if I can make 300 friends before midnight I can win!
Now go watch something that makes you laugh. It is the best medicine.

Peace and Laughter,

Hey Bonni, do me a favor.
I've been having such a good time laughing over Doc's and similar blogs. Let Doc know I was honestly nominated by someone who just likes my comics and I'm now terrifically relieved to have avoided winning.;o)
I would love to leave a comment but am terrified since I still have my HSB account. BTW, did you send me an e-mail? I'm just worried in case I inadvertently deleted it.
I hope all is well with Raiden. Please know you can count on support from me and I'm here if you need to vent.
Peace and Laughter,
