~ Happy New Year!!!

Hello again!

My holidays were really good. The baby got a ton of clothes for Christmas. About 22 outfits altogether. His great grandmother bought him two outfits but one is a girl's outfit. What am I supposed to do with a girl's outfit? Oh well.

I had my time off, and we went to Baltimore. This did not go well. They said they can no longer do the shortening because they can only do that for differences up to 5 cm and by the time he stops growing, his will be around 7 or 8. So they sent us to the limb lengthening institute in Baltimore but I can't take him there. They will do the surgery but expect us to pay $20,000 up front a week before the surgery. I cannot do this. I don't have that kind of money. So now he has an appointment at Children's so I can see if they will do the surgery here. However we are back to having to decide between limb lengthening and amputation. I just don't know what to do or how to go about making this decision. I don't want to make a decision and regret it later or have him hate us for doing this to him. I just don't know.

I went back to the doctor for my pain and they won't do anything because I want to have another child. He said if I don't get pregnant in three months to go back and they will take another look. That's just great. I hate doctors anymore I just want to give up on doctors.

The baby is doing great. He's still crawling and pulling himself up but now he is starting to cruise the furniture so he's doing remarkable. I am so proud of him for everything that he has accomplished so far. It's wonderful to see him learn new things each day.

Our car broke down yesterday. The transmission went out. Just what we needed. So he is trying to get it in the shop but they don't have any openings and we can't have just one car. Jeremy has to be at work at 7:30 and I have to be at work at 9:30. I drop the baby off at daycare and pick him up. I get off at 6:30 or 7 and Jeremy gets off at 7:30 and doesn't get home till after 8. So we are stuck.

I have to go for now; I have a lot of work to do today. Take care.
