Getting ready for another trip...

On Sunday we will take off for Seattle again.  Carla's biopsy is scheduled as the 2nd case on Wednesday, the 2nd.  But, Bobby has Sundays and Mondays off, so we are going to leave Sunday, spend the night in Spokane (because we are too old to drive all the way to Seattle in a day) and then make our way to Seattle on Monday. Carla loves to swim, so we always make sure to stay at a hotel with a pool.  I found a pretty cheap hotel at Hotels.com, so hopefully it will be a good one.  On Tuesday, we hope to do some school clothes shopping for Carla.  Wednesday, we will do labs before the heart Cath/biopsy and then Thursday is my birthday.  Yay!  I will be 42... where does the time go? We don't have any real "plans" but do intend to enjoy the day.  Friday, is my cousin's wedding in Portland, so we will head down there and wish them the best. Saturday, we will meet some dear old friends for brunch and then start making our way towards home.  We like to make medical trips feel like vacations, because it helps us and Carla to not dread the checkups so much. People are always telling us how well adjusted she is, and I think this is one of the many reasons why.

After we get home from our trip, Carla has an appointment to cut a significant amount of hair off.  We dyed it in May and that required bleaching, which is always hard on the hair. It's just hard to manage at this point, so a little bit shorter will be a lot less painful in general... even though her hair is gorgeous when it is all fixed and curled.  Problem is that she hates spending time on it, but then again doesn't want it to be short.  So, we shall see what we settle on, I thought it was absolutely adorable in a short bob. But she's not having any of that!

That's about all I have to report.  Thank you for the good thoughts and prayers.

Love, Jen
