Kyle's Excellent Day!

Kyle's teacher came over today and Kyle presented her with the quilt we made. She was absolutely thrilled. Pictured above is Kyle and his teacher Theresa (in the middle) and her daughter Bethany. Bethany and Kyle have known each other for years. I am very much for home schooling, but I do have a high regard for teachers. Especially those who work with kids like Kyle. Theresa has the same kids for sometimes 5-6 years. She had Kyle for 5. Kyle signed the back of her quilt himself. We added the "h" later...he got ahead of himself. His finger is covering his last name, which he insists on signing every time he writes his name. While Kyle was having a great visit with Theresa, Kyle's doctor called. Not the nurse but the actual Doctor. He is a very compassionate man and had his nurse work hard today. Kyle has an appointment with a Neurologist on Jan. 3rd. Praise God!!! It is a good neurologist, who really had every right NOT to take us. Kyle sees a doctor outside her group and these groups stick together. We have 3 major hospitals in our city all with their own group. Anyway, life is better. We have to go to the family docs office on Wednesday for some blood work, and the doc wants me to continue watching open staircases, no cement floors, etc. but he thinks Kyle's seizure had ALOT to do with him watching video games and then not getting a full nights sleep. He was up late the night before and then up early. This alone would not cause it, but mix it with the video game and there is a problem. The young man he was watching had a grand mal seizure 7 days earlier than Kyle while playing the video game. This young man has no history of seizures. No coincidence! Thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts. Please continue to pray for Kyle when he is brought to mind.
I got a new friend last night. Introducing Hazel! Isn't she pretty?? She is a HARD worker too. She has a special lever for hard floors that makes the beater brush stop. The suction is so good she gets "stuck" if I stand her still for a minute. On carpet she is a WHIZ! She is so powerful, it is a workout for me. Best thing is she is fast and efficient! I really like her!
I may not get another chance to post before Christmas, so to all of you...Merry Christmas and blessings to you as you celebrate the birth of our Saviour.

I leave you with pictures of TJ, whose new word is "beautiful". He says it for everything...beautiful lights, beautiful tree, beautiful Grandma! (Notice my Christmas tree ornaments OFF the tree and on the coffee table!)

Bren, I have just read your last 3 posts.
I would so badly love to rush over & give you a big 'puffy' hug, as my Granddaughter would say! Now I am portly, I am soft & squishy, & I love to give healing hugs!
Good for you, for going to bat for Kyle, it paid off in the end!!

I do wish you a Merry & Blessed Christmas!!

I am so glad to hear of the favor for Kyle's behalf. The quilt is a big gift full of loving warmth. I must touch her heart so very deeply.

I'm glad to hear Kyle is doing better and will be able to see the doctor soon. He looks so proud with the quilt for his teacher. Hazel looks good too.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.
