I have a new Niece!! And a frustrating daughter :(

May 18 2009 my brothers wife had to have a C-section delivery to bring ino this world my adorable neice! Ilainna Lee at a weight of 9 lbs 3 oz ( did you read about the C-section?) and 22 inches long with a mop of dark glossy hair! I am so excited, I have 4 nephews and now finally a girl!! I totally love being an auntie, and Ilainnas big brother Logan is a totally sweetie at age 3 you never can be sure what he might say next! On my husbands side we have twins 4 yr old Izak and Aiden and their little brother Keane age 1, who are in another province, and so I am missing out on seeing them very often.
So that's the happy for the week. Now for the frustrating.
As you know my 11 yr old (Seen with new cousin) is having a terrible time with her diabetes. When we went to see Ilainna, Adaira was also getting a blood test done, and the results were bad. Very bad. So this fri I am taking back up to the city hospital for a weekend of observation and monitoring. And likely a bunch of people who will not be thinking that I know what or how to handle her diabetes. Last time when they tested this knowledge Adaira left them speachless with how adept she is at it. In addition this weekend my other kids are supposed to go to scout camp, and my husband is the leader and in charge of the whole thing. so lots of figuring out was done tonight on how to manage this. And i must say juggling scedules with your X-in laws is never fun, interesting, but not so much in the good times department. But her good friend lives in said city so maybe it won't be as boring this time, being a weekend when they might be able to come in to see her. Lucky for me my craft is very portable so i will be working on more tab purse orders, and a wire necklace idea. I can't keep my hands still, for long without them twitching for a hook :)
Anyway that's my world for this week! With all these ups and downs I hope i don't get motion sick!

Oooh... baby heads. Pet the baby for me please!

Hopefully they figure out the blood sugar swing is due to the secret cookie stash and you can just duct tape the kid somewhere safe for the next 8 to 10 years until she regrows her brains and realizes she is not actually immortal.

Precious: from (obviously the new) dad and his beaming smile, the proud 3 year old...the chubby, glossy baby - to yer girl with the blood sugar demons...and she doesn't look sick (but wouldn't it be nice if she could know what it was to have normal sugars?)
