So the last few days has been crazy. Saturday was the birthday party for Brantyn, plus a Valentine's Day party at my dad's house and Sunday morning I had to take one of my gliders to an emergency vet. Grouchy got into a bowl of hot wax in my wax warmer and I had to rush her to an emergency vet to save her life. I was so scared a squalled the whole time. It turned out that she had no bond and all they have to do is put her under to clean off most of the wax. She didn't have to have anabiotic's or anything so I got to come home with her.
I went to the doctor today because I wasn't feeling well and I was beginning to lose my voice. I figured I had bronchitis or strep throat but it turns out I have an upper respiratory infection. It's lovely to be sick the day before your birthday! Tomorrow Ms. Kay is cooking me a birthday dinner of fried shrimp which is my favorite! I can't believe that I will be 22 tomorrow. It's amazing how fast time flies. If feels like it was just yesterday that I was turning 17! It's going to be another year without my mom but I hope I am making her proud!
Madilyn is getting so big. I can't believe that she is already seven months old! It won't be very long and she will start crawling and even walking. It's hard to think about in the next few months she will be learning to walk and how to talk! There's going to be only 13 months between Madi and the new baby. I'm so excited in some ways but scared in others.
Paralyzed from the neck down after an ATV rollover at 14, April Otwell is beating the odds the doctors gave her. She's a blogger, fantasy writer, college student, sugar glider guardian and spinal cord injury survivor. She's even writing her first fiction novel!
