Spring Break!

Well Spring Break was a little rough this year because Rachel got her tonsils out on March 10. She kept getting strep throat, and we though it would be best to just go ahead and do it. I knew it was going to be rough, but I wasn't sure how rough. Well, it was rough! After the surgery, they came and got Daran and I and we went back to recovery and she was crying and saying her throat hurt. The nurse gave her some medicine that calmed her down, and we were home by 11:00 am or so. Then about 4:00 pm I think her medicine wore off, and she was having a hard time. We finally got her calmed down and she did ok. She mostly ate vanilla ice cream.

Friday Nana came over and we had lunch and Rachel seemed to be ok. Then later that afternoon, Nana, Papa, and Elizabeth came over to visit because Elizabeth was spending the night with Nana and Papa. So it helped Rachel to have visitors.

Saturday was a little rough. I think she was tired and of course in pain. She still mostly ate ice cream and a little bit of chicken noodle soup.

Sunday we went to Target.

Monday we went to see the Justin Bieber movie. I think she enjoyed it. It was a nice diversion. Then we went to the outlet mall to buy her a princess shirt because we are going to see Disney Princess on Ice in May.

Tuesday she spent a little time at Nana's and I cleaned out her closet.

Wednesday we did a little shopping with Nana at Kohl's and then we went to get frozen yogurt.

Thursday Lori came over with her new baby Henry. He is 6 weeks old and adorable. Rachel was so cute with him and wanted to hold him all the time and she even fed him his bottle. We went out to eat at Applebee's. Lori spent most of the day here.

Friday Rachel went over to her Nana's for a little bit and I cam back and cleaned house.

Saturday we went to a car show at Freddy's and then went to the grocery store.

I think her pain level has gotten better. I just give her a little bit of pain medicine at night now. She hasn't complained too much about her throat hurting.

I'm glad we went ahead and did it and I hope it helps her not get sick all the time. I'm also glad that the worst is over.

Snow Day! (February 4, 2011)

Snow again! They had been saying it was going to snow for a few days, but I wasn't holding my breath. Well sure enough, Friday morning, February 4th, there was snow on the ground, so we didn't have school! It was so exciting! Rachel and I played out in it for just a little while, then she said she was cold so we went in. It had mostly melted by the afternoon.
