|Waiting for blood work|
Zack is scheduled for more blood work today at 10:30 am to determine whether he needs a blood transfusion or not. We arrive promptly (well okay 10 minutes late) are greeted by Melanie who does the usual routine (weight, pressure, temperature). She asks Zack how he is feeling, he replies with "tired and don't want to be here, no offense". She looks at Zack and says "well I hope you won't need blood, but your lips are white and your color is pale too", and if your tired, that's a sign of low blood. She walks us to the back exam room and asks if Zack wants her to access the port or take blood from his arm. He tells her to go ahead and use the arm, just in case they don't need to give him the transfusion.

|YUP... I am asleep!!|
As we head home my emotions are taking a hold of me. I am angry, tired, overwhelmed and just plain done!! I offer to bring home KFC and Frank says, "No that doesn't agree with me anymore, it's okay you guys get what you want, I'll find me something here at home", all I can think is.... OLD MAN!!! I don't see that he is grateful and is looking out for what "WE" may want, I just get grumpy and tell him to get over the grump old man gig!! Funny thing is? I'm the grumpy "old" woman... Well maybe grumpy tired woman. But either way the whole conversation was silly. We opt out of KFC and just decide to grab fast food ( I know.. bad girl) and eat in car of the way home. We arrive at home after picking up his shots for the next three days (with insurance it is now $10!). It's about 7:30 pm and we are greeted by two smiling faces, Frank and Sidi (our shitzu). Zack's energy is picking up already. He received his stereo speakers for his car that he bought with his Birthday money from Mom (Meme) and can't wait to get to the car to install them.
I lay in bed, write my blog and find a new app for mine and Zack's phones where you can enter all of his homework and mark it as completed. This also syncs with the computer. I enter all of his work into the system and he is ready to begin. I think I'm more excited than he is about the app, but if it helps me keep track of his school work then it is well worth the time I spent putting in all the information.
My friend and her daughter are back home. They actually came home late last night and now it's just a matter of getting her energy and strength back and a follow up visit with a couple of doctors to see what is next for them. For now the family is back together and we know that has a lot to do with healing! The Love and positive energy in that house is boundless.
