As in a new month.

March. It's finally here. Finally. 

Well, February went out with a bang.  Continuing its "seriously?!" status that we had become familiar with. I can't remember if I've posted about this before or not but a few months ago Stella suffered from a case of Nursemaid's Elbow. You know, where the elbow pops out of socket. Yep. Life. Anywho, it was easily solved with a trip to the ER and we moved on. 

Flash forward to February. It's the 28th. Literally the last day of the month. A month that has not been easy for those here in Drosche Land. Just a few hours to go and we were free. Then Stella's teacher caught me on the way back to my classroom from lunch. They were worried about her left shoulder/arm. Maybe it was out of socket?  She'd been randomly crying off and on all day and randomly not using the arm off and on all day. Crap. Crappity crap crap. She'd had a minor little fall in the hallway that morning. Just the usual. Was that it?  Who knows. Regardless, I found myself leaving work early on Friday and heading to the ER. 

We get there and she seems fine. The brief nap on the way revived her.  Amy met us there and agreed that she seemed fine. Nurses and doctors did as well. So, what was up?  Possibly it was out of socket but popped itself back in when she slept and relaxed. Maybe. Who knows. The good news was that she was fine. The bad news was that February tried one last time to ruin a day. Argh. 

But it's over now. Behind us. It's March!  Time to move forward. Time for a fresh start!  I have a good feeling about March. I think it will be far kinder to us. For starters we hopefully will receive a phone call this week regarding our Home Study. Our file has been sent and we just await the call to set up our first meeting.  Hopefully a post about that is forthcoming this week

So there. Something is positive about March already.  Take that February. Take that. 

All is well, marching forward (pun intended), in Drosche Land.

  1. Hopefully no more arm popping comes due and must be glad February is through
