I'm not very good at keeping up with this blog I don't think. This is going to take some practice I guess! To be fair, we've also been kind of busy with some things and there hasn't been a ton of time in which to blog. Last weekend was so nice that Danny, Hailey, Journey, and I just played outside for the majority of the time. I wanted to enjoy the nice weather while we could. That meant walking between 5-6 miles which kind of wore me out! We enjoyed the Super Bowl with Danny's parents, or I should say Danny & Hailey did. I kept up my tradition of sleeping through it for the 2nd year in a row.
On Tuesday, Danny & I both went to the doctor. We've both been putting off check ups for way too long. I just want Aunt Jane in Kansas City, and he hates doctors. I apparently have 3 moles that look highly suspicious and need to be biopsied. I feel fairly confident that they will turn out fine, but it is better to be safe than sorry. The really rotten news came from Danny's doctor. Danny has a really hard time sleeping, so back in September, the doctor whom he and his family had gone to for years prescribed him a pill to help with anxiety. We find out on Tuesday from the new doctor that this pill is the WORST thing that a recovering alcoholic can take as it is habit forming and actually incites cravings. GREAT! So now we have to work on weaning Danny off of this pill following a guide from his doctor. I know that mistakes happen easily, but this kind of stresses me out!
On a positive note, Hailey's reading continues to improve which is wonderful. These classes seem to really be helping her which is great. I am down 8 pounds so far and seem to be continuing to lose so I am thrilled about that! Danny & I have also found a church close to where we live that we are going to start getting involved with. We really enjoy going and feel that this will be a great place for us to get plugged in to.
