Heart Month!

Did you know that Friday, February 4th is Wear Red Day to build support and awareness for heart disease in women?  This is a subject that is very dear to my heart.  (No pun intended!)  Heart disease runs rampant in my family on both sides in men and women.  PLEASE, if you have risk factors, get checked!  IF you're not sure if you have risk factors, visit the American Heart Association's website here.  For those who are wondering about Dad, he is at home, in good spirits and has lost over 20 pounds in water weight.  I'm hoping to be able to make a trip to North Central Arkansas soon to visit.  There's nothing like a trip "home" to get your head back on straight and to relax a little.  :-)

Matthew is doing very well!  He has a 2 month appointment on Thursday with his surgeon to make sure he's on target.  I think he is.  We took he and Scott to the park over the weekend, and he was running around and playing just like the other kids.  A year ago, that wouldn't have happened.  He would've been hanging on Jason & me gasping for breath.  Scott is sick right now.  He apparently is allergic to something here in Texas, and his eyes are swollen quite a bit.  The doctor said he doesn't have a sinus infection yet, but he does have fluid backed up into his ear canals so it wouldn't surprise me if he develops one.

Jason is trying to get his days & nights straightened out.  He's been staying up all night playing computer games & is hoping to get back on track so he can "get a haircut and get a real job"!  (HA!)    He did forget to close the bathroom window last night so when the cold front came through, that Arctic wind blew into my bedroom and boy was it COLD!  I am preparing for another ultrasound registry and losing my mind over that, but I'm okay otherwise!
