Oh, I love that they do this- what a great idea. I know what you mean about missing Embassy parties too! Glad you all had a good time.

You know how people always say they laughed out loud? I just cheered out loud. What wonderful news. Enjoy your Turkey Day.

Aah, you made me cry! What wonderful news on the lymph nodes. Now fingers crossed that the tests will confirm this. She looks very fetching in her stylish gown. Keep resting!

I definitely hear you. I'm still looking for the reason from last time, and this one is going no easier. WAy too frustrating.

My comment earlier didn't stay for some reason. Great news on your ultrasound. Erm yes, I know how it is to take kids to the museum. And am I the only one to be bemused that you have real handcuffs at home? ;-)

I agree with everyone else here. There is nothing fair about any of this, and you're having to make huge decisions without time to work through all those feelings. Be mad and pissy, and all that you need to get through this.

What a great idea! During the early days of Pudding's A-word diagnosis, our friends didn't know what to say or do, and I wasn't able to tell them. It is hard to offer comfort when you haven't experienced the same thing, and we don't want to say or do anything to make it more painful. Can't wait to read your piece.

You are brave and amazing. I'm sad that because of the urgency you can't grieve at your own pace, but so glad that you are getting control of the situation. That Doctor sounds like a gem, and BOGOF is pretty cool! My parents did a cruise after he recovered from surgery for a brain tomour- they liked it so much they've done a few more since then. Thinking of you.

Yay for daddies being home (especially when most needed).

I'm so, so, sorry, friend I've yet to meet. This made me cry. I wish I could write, or speak, or do something to make this better, but I'm at a loss. Love.

I'm not experienced in Daddy going away for so long, nor are typically developing kids my forte, but tantrums and meltdowns? Oh yes, LOTS of experience there! Look really carefully about what is going on right before the tantrum/meltdown. For us there is frequently a control element, or sometimes a sensory issue. Then (this is the bog one for me) look at your response to the tantrum. I frequently would "reward" her by giving her more attention, removing her from the situation, whatever it was she wanted. I didn't realize I was even doing this. I try to give much more attention when she is being well-behaved, and ignore the misbehavior (which is way easier said than done, I know!). Tantrums and meltdowns are a form of communication, you just have to figure out what he is saying, and what your response is to it, and if that is something perpetuating it. Really difficult when you are by yourself and just want an easy life though. Hope that helps!

I know I'll be asking myself the same thing next time we move, and probably every time after that! I'm annoyed we missed the picnic- I thought it was at the end of the month.
