Melting down... Day 349 27OCT09

Joshua was in rare form today, the steroids have taken a firm hold. He had several full scale chernobyl style meltdowns over seemingly innocuous things. Life with a child on steroids is no fun. It is life with an armed and ticking bomb. During the quiet spells Joshua worked on his LEGO's and was glad to display them for me and let me take some pictures. Timing is EVERYTHING.

Jarrod was busy today designing and building micro-scale LEGO skyscrapers. He came up with some nice designs.

Allie came over to stay this evening while Jamie and Christian went out to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. Hardly seems possible that a year has passed already. Allie has a pretty bad case of thrush but is responding well to the meds. Hopefully she will be back to normal in a few days. It can't be pleasant to have your mouth going all gooky on you.

I believe I may have, according to several people I talked to today, confused you with the picture of the miniland figures of Josh and Jarrod that I posted yesterday. The mini-figures they built are still living in Miniland USA in California, look for them when you visit. Gary, the Master Builder, made a duplicate set for the boy's to take home with them.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Sorry to hear about the meltdowns! It can't be fun to be trapped in a steroid inferno. This is definitely the kind of time when it's great to be 'just a Nonna'.

Fabulous Lego creations! Tell Jarrod I love his mini skyscrapers and hope there is a fulfilling career in there somewhere.

Hang tough Mighty Warrior - these days will pass and you will go back to kickin cancer butt instead of everybody and everything around you.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,
