So, with Winter Storm Nemo blowing through Saturday day through Saturday night in southern areas our x-mas gift to Brian's parents of tickets to the Manchester Monarchs (LA Kings farm team) AHL hockey game got cancelled and re-scheduled to Tuesday! We made it work since we invested some $$ in good tickets and my sister Jenna so graciously said she'd still take Gracyn overnight and get him fro and to daycare. Asa was scheduled to get his ear tubes re-done yesterday (more on that below) so being up late was okay. No, your eyes are not deceiving you. The ice is pink, the game was dedicated to Breast Cancer Survivors and the night was called Pink in the Rink. We like the Monarchs but they were also playing the Providence Bruins (Boston Bruins farm team). We had fun, late night though. They went into overtime and then a shoot out that went on for awhile...

Asa had his ear tubes re-done yesterday. A year and 11 days since is last ones! They couldn't get him in until 2:00 yesterday afternoon so the poor kid didn't eat for 20 hours! I made my un-impressed voice heard. Next time I'm pretty sure they will do what they can to get him in first thing in the morning. The whole procedure went great and we killed two birds with one stone and got his annual labs done while he was out! His right ear (the one with hearing loss) they said was pretty yucky lots of wax and fluid and the tube had fallen out and was stuck in all of that junk... The left looked good, the tube also had fallen out but minimal scarring from the tube and they replace it. You can see the relief in his face and his mood is even better!
My name is Jackie and I am a mother, wife, friend, sister, daughter, cousin to many, and a dreamer of sorts. I dream of many things and one is a life full of acceptance, achievement and success for my Super Hero son Asa. He's got extra good stuff that comes with a little thing called Down syndrome. We live in the beautiful state of New Hampshire with our 2 Bulldogs; Rosie, Frankie and 36 chickens.
