Back in March, my middle child Rachel Iris has renal failure. A week in a hospital will make you figure out what you want out of life. Appointments and biopsies make you realize how precious life is. We had taken her to the doctor a few times, they kept saying that it was normal childhood sickness. Two days after her fourth birthday, I had enough.....
But first..listing appointment, finalize offer, Why cant we just walk away from this business?
So at 4:00 I took her to her appointment. Obviously the doctors suggestion of alternating Tylenol and Motrin was not helping. I urged them to do blood work. I hear them out in the hall.....white blood cells, infectious disease, emergency room.
I had been so busy trying to survive in this market. I felt like I had failed the only thing that made me get up and work everyday. My beautiful children: Caroline, Rachel Iris, and Howard.
So back to my reason of my post....
My kids are OBSESSED with High School Musical. Rachel Iris walks around the house all day singing on of the songs: "You are the music in me."
For those of you that are not familiar with the movies, GET OUT OF THE DARK AGES! These kids are everywhere!
This is how the song starts: "You know the words When you dream there is a chance you will find a little laughter or happy ever after.
SO what is the music in you? At the beginning of the year, it was Hi Ho its off to work we go! Some days it would have been They are trying to make me go to rehab but I said no, no, no!
I had just hired a client care coordinator two weeks before my fiasco. She also happens to be my best friend. (Hence her ring tone people let me tell you about my best friend.) What a way to start a job! Not only was she dealing with a new team, she was introduced to my sellers in the worst way. How she got work done I do not know. Bombarded with my business and all the phone calls to check on Rachel Iris. She bought George Strait CD, and the first song made her cry. I saw God today.
Today I think I am more Slow Ride....Take it easy. Mixed with a little I Love Beach Music. Mixed with a little Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. I Will Get By. When I am on the phone with the lender, Tell Me Something Good. Dual Agent..Stuck in the middle with you!
Like June Carter and Johnny Cash said...TIMES A WASTING! Don't be like Kenny Chesney and Live in Fast Forward. Tuesday is Gone and I can see clearly now.
Its Summertime and the Living is Easy. You Cant Always Get what you want. Get Jiggy with it! ITS ONE SWEET WORLD. Do not forget to enjoy it!
Unfortunately, life is not like the teach us in the Disney movies. Sometimes it is hard. Sometimes it just plain sucks! But please stop and enjoy it. It is way too short!
By the way, Rachel Iris is back to "normal." She is a little more demanding but hey, I will take it. We go back to Duke monthly for more test and blood work She was allergic to Motrin which caused her kidneys to shut down. She is still taking medicine for increased blood pressure. We still have a bladder infection she is fighting.
Funny how things like this change you. We are spending a month in the mountains. We immediately booked a trip to Disney. My marriage, which was shaky at best, is better than ever. So for right now, it is Paradise City.
We need to sing a happy song, and no matter what....I hope you dance!
Here are my angels in Disney.
