Happy December!

Although, it feels like May or June around here - muggy and warm! Not very Christmas-y, but it doesn't stop us from decking the halls and dreaming of a white Christmas. December always seems to fly by, especially since we have so many special things to celebrate - including a certain someone's 13th birthday! Already?

That said, the month didn't get off to the greatest start for Georgia as we spent the entire day on Saturday at the hospital. She hadn't been feeling well since Sunday, and by Friday evening, we decided we needed to get some blood work done. We had to go the ER at Dell because there were no beds available on 4N, but it was still better to be there than at an urgent care facility. The ER doctor was in constant communication with the doctor on call from the clinic, and we were able to have Georgia checked out from head to toe. Blood work, x-rays, and ultrasound were all normal (normal!), so the probable culprit behind her symptoms is a bad bug, and we're waiting on cultures to confirm that. The hardest part of the day was getting the IV started since Georgia was fairly dehydrated, and they had to poke her five times before her veins would cooperate. She never made a peep, but you know it hurt! As always, the nurses (the three it took to get the IV going) commented on what a "patient patient" Georgia is and how easy she makes it for them to do their job. What a trooper.

The good news is, she's feeling much better and will be back at school tomorrow. She's got her next clinic appointment in a couple of weeks, and I'm sure we'll rehash the whole episode with Dr. Neff, but for now, she's definitely on the mend. In fact, we're all looking forward to this weekend and the clinic holiday party at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, courtesy of our friends at Superhero Kids!

Finally, the word on the street about Comedy GOLD is: Success! We had such a great time and are so appreciative of the wonderful performers and dedicated volunteers. We met our fundraising goal and, even better, made great contacts and inroads for future events, so we're really looking forward to doing it all again! Big thanks and much love to everyone who came out, and we'll see you next time!
