On the Bright Side

This week is going to be a better week.  I'm not taking a chance and making the obvious joke that it just HAS to  be better than this past week, because we all know that's not true.  That being said, these are the good things:
My ILs bought DH and me a new fridge as an early holiday present to replace the one that was making the constant LOUD humming noise and whose freezer not only was no longer working but was also pouring water out onto the floor for us to clean up each morning.  It got delivered today and It. Is. Beautiful.
We got Twin A to the cardiologist on Friday who confirmed the Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome diagnosis and scheduled the cardiac ablation for mid-November.  The best part is that they will give him medication to put him to sleep before they even put in the IV!  He will need to stay over night, but the procedure will only take five hours instead of the possible twelve hours that I had read about on-line.  I'm just so relieved to have a plan to deal with this issue.  The doctor also assured me that Twin B is okay to use his ADD meds since no WPW showed up on his EKG. 

Physically I am finally feeling better.  My breathing is still not 100% but literally every day brings improvement.  The biggest problem I have now is that I will almost forget I'm still recovering from pneumonia and will walk somewhere at my normal fast pace until I suddenly realize that I have to stop and catch my breath.  However, since when I came back from the hospital I had to stop three times just to walk up the stairs, I think I'm doing pretty good.

There is still a lot of stuff going on around here making me feel overwhelmed, but I am trying to focus on what I am going to do about each situation instead of just feeling paralyzed.  I plan to make a fresh To Do list for this coming week and do what I can do.
Pin It!

Yay! Obviously thrilled that things are on the better side for Twin A (and B) and that it will be sooner rather than later. And SO happy for you that you found a fridge that fits your space! Wahoo!
