It's been ten days!?!

Wow, it's been ten days since I posted...

Let's see...what's new...The girls start school on Tuesday. Those of you that know me, know that the first day of school is the worst day of the year for me. :(

Most moms are thrilled when the kids go back to school...not me. I cry. A lot. It's just another reminder they are getting older. :(

Anyway, in two days, Kirstin will have an anninversary. An icky one. It will be SIX MONTHS since her headache started. She has had it EVERY single day since March 2, 2007. We've seen 16 doctors, had numerous procedures, tried over ten medications...blah, blah, blah.

Moving on....we tried a new procedure today. Are you ready? It sounds crazy, but heck, I'll try standing on my head if it will work....


Botox. Yep, the stuff we use for wrinkles has been known to help with headaches. They have been testing it for years on headaches. So, we tried it. We won't know one way or another for a few weeks, since it takes some time to work. Bad news is insurance does not pay for it. She had 27 injections! Let's just say, what I paid for the visit was only a few dollars less than my house payment. WOW.

But, if it works....you just can't put a price on being pain free. Of course we had a Neurologist inject her. He's been working with Botox for about 15 years...he knows what he is doing. :)

So, we are praying...and praying......

Katie is, well, Katie. :) She found out who her 5th grade teacher is going to be. She's not happy. In fact, she cried. Poor thing. I'm fine with the teacher...Katie just wanted the cute young teacher. I'm sure she will fall in love with this teacher the first week of school. :)

Work has been busy! Good busy. I love it. I'm having the time of my life designing products. :)

Well, it's dinner time....I think we will go hit In-n-Out. It's too hot to cook!

Big hugs,
Stephanie

Poor little thing. I think we are all anxious to know if it helped or not? I can't say that I cry "every" first day of school, but the first day of Preschool and Kindergarden are special milestones that have brought tears of joy to my eyes!

Hi I am replying to the headache problem and want to let you know about a possible help. My future son-in-law was plegged with them and finally went to a ciroprater and said his axis was off and went thru a few adjustments and now no more headaches and no more meds!
