Wow. I just got back from a great vacation at the cottage. I had so much fun with M&D and Granny Rama, Grandma Carrie and Grandpa Tony and Aunt Michelle and Uncle Matt and my cousins Emily and Abby plus our neighbor friends Mr Scott and Ms Em and Haylee and Evie too! It was Evie's first birthday party on Saturday and I got to bounce in a bounce house.
I had a great time swimming, floating, kayaking, tubing and fishing, yup, all those things!! M&D kept me active. I also got to bike and swing just like at home. I posted a lot of pictures of all my fun. I hope you enjoy as much as I did. This lady needs a week to relax and take a break from the water and sun. Dad said I am a boating/water diva. Huh?
June 15th was a sad day...a very sad day. I lost my Poppa, he is now in heaven. I don't understand it all, but I do know that our lives are forever changed. He always made me smile. He called me Addisssaaahnn and made funny noises. I will miss him up north. He bought me an awesome pontoon, boat rides wont ever be the same, but I promise to play, swim, and splash in his memory.
I will miss my Poppa but at least I know Poppa Angel is now looking after me!
I guess it could be worse, right? Last time had two black eyes. Friday went pretty well. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes. The doctors hopefully helped my right eye. Only time will tell.
It was a really long day but I am happy to say I woke up and went to sleep in my own bed on Friday. No need for a UM Hospital Sleep Over. M&D were very happy and thankful for that. Everything went pretty well. One complication though. They found that both my eyes upper and lower had Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis. Not pink eye but definitely severe inflammation.
After a steroid shot to both eyes, ugh, they completed the surgery on my right eye. I have a month of meds for GPC and of course the hard part, figuring out what caused it and to make sure it doenst come back!
Other than that, I am doing pretty well. I have been up and around, playing, crawling, scooting, spinning...
No school this week, doctors orders. Woohoo!
I need to stay healthy, recover and get ready for my big weekend. Bday Party for me!!! The weather looks to be cooperating so hopefully I am healed so I can be outside playing with everyone.
Hope everyone has been well. It has been a busy beginning to spring around here. Always is, but this time it seems even nuttier. Mom's getting busy with photo shoots. Dad is traveling and working. I've been trying to behave and stay healthy...I'll be honest, I am not always successful at either!
I have been trying to stay healthy for some procedures I need done but Murphy's takes over. At least that's what Mom calls it. Murphy's Law or something?!? Anyway, back to the fun stuff.
I celebrated my 5th Birthday. We are planning a little party for next weekend. I hope the weather is good...we have a little inflatable play thingy coming for me and my cousins/friends. Pray for dry weather please. May 2nd. I cant wait to see everybody.
The weather stinks right now so hopefully we get this out of the way for May.
Other than that no other major news to share. I have been missing more school then attending. I need to stay healthy! Dad and I got pretty sick. Never seen Dad that sick. Mom locked him in the bedroom so we didn't share it. I think he is all better now.
I am almost 100% but no school. We are playing it safe for an eye procedure I have scheduled for Friday. The 4th or 5th time I have had it "scheduled"....don't ask?!?
I am excited for better weather and up north. I am hoping Grandpa Rama starts to feel better. I went to visit him over the weekend. We are all praying for him! He is still tan from Florida...so is granny, wow! Maybe next year this lady makes a little escape...
OK I am off to lots of Dr appts and therapy More updates after Friday...stay tuned.
What a weekend. MSU Basketball was amazing!! Final Four, woohoo!
And now today, I woke up to M&D singing Happy Birthday. I know it sounds scary, but they had the music playing from the Ipad so it wasn't too bad. Anyway...I am the big CINCO today. The number five. FIVE!!!
Grandpa is home from Florida, Granny is on her way back, MSU Basketball is awesome and I am five. What a great start to my week!!
Loving the change in weather! Good bye snow and hello green grass. OK, more like brownish yellow green grass. Either way, I am ready for Spring. WooHoo. I went for a walk with M&D yesterday, first one of the year.
Mom helped me color some spring color artwork. See how talented I am?!
I was recently asked to participate in a write-up featuring my very rare condition. It is a short piece but it does such a great job summarizing everything about my rare syndrome I thought it was a great thing to share with all my fans, friends and followers. I am pictured in the green shirt. As you can see from my friend in the other picture, we have some eerie similarities.
When Mom and Dad say I am one in a million...I actually have to correct them and tell them I am one in millions!!
