Marky is back in "Theatre"....


We are spending the day at Primary Children's getting his Remicade infusion therapy.

We have been up here since 0930 this morning. it's now 1500 hrs....(thats 3:00 military time, for you civilians) !

He's been a trooper, of course. Mostly bored. He has to lay in bed the whole time.

On the other hand...."mom" has been much less manageable. ! ! !

The anxiety accompanied with hauling a child back up this hill along with its all too recent memories is bringing out all the coping skills that were waining at
best in the first place !

Large quantities of chocolate covered almonds is the "coping skill" du jour for me !

Marky has been pinching me everytime i try to cry !...a technique that has served us well since the introduction of the "pinching diversionary tactic" was suggested by my co-worker, Angela !

Every time the tears are threatening.....you get someone to pinch you ......takes your mind right off whatever it was you were getting ready to cry about !!!

Marky and me are getting to be quite the team at it !

Hang in there you guys! Also, I'm in fully support of chocolate/diet coke therapy. I think it is highly effective and use it on a regular basis!

Also, is it just me, or did Marky grow like 3 feet this summer?! He looks like a young man now!

Love you guys!
