So we are firmly entrenched in the sick camp, Dylan caught my strep throat and he has an upper respiratory infection. We went to the ER late last night because Dylan started coughing so much that he kept throwing up, and kept waking up crying in pain. We are both on strong antibiotics so hopefully we will be feeling much better soon!
It doesn't even feel like New Year's Eve because of so much going on these past couple of days, but I am looking forward to starting a fresh new year. 2012 had a lot of ups & downs for me, but a lot of the hard times made me so much stronger as a person. I lost weight (which I've started to gain some back and need to get back on the wagon); we raised over a $1000 for the NYC Pancreatic Cancer Walk in our mom's name; I made some new friends that are quickly becoming good friends; and of course we learned about Dylan's autism. This whole summer was spent having Dylan's numerous evaluations, meetings, setting up therapies, researching and trying to adjust to our new life. It was the one of the hardest times of my life, but I've learned so much about myself and my son from it. I also have my blog readers to thank for the support you lent me this year, because of you AND being able to air out my fears....well, lets just say I didn't need to pursue therapy for myself or pop some happy pills. ;)
I have a lot of hopes for 2013. I'm going to be one busy bee with the preschool process looming in my near future, but I'm excited to take on the new challenges this year will bring...and my number one resolution is to finally take that Disney trip that we weren't able to take!
Happy New Year!
