Miscellaneous Fun!

Rolf made it home safely from being with his family in Alabama late on Saturday…since then we’ve been trying to settle back into the regular routine but it has been a weird week…it’s busy, lots to catch up on, we’re all tired and life feels scattered…but, there has been some random fun too:

Came home from dropping Olivia off at Volleyball practice to find the boys wrestling in the hallway…Boys!

Holter Monitor test 2-20-14
Holter Monitor test 2-20-14 – no word yet on the results.

We’re waiting to hear back from Dr. Harake about Rudy’s Holter Monitor test last week…I don’t expect any BAD news but I am hoping we were able to get some good data.  Normally the sticky probes stick like cement but we had an unusually warm day on the 20th causing Rudy to sweat which then caused the probes to peel off at different times throughout the 24 hour test period.  I tried to stick them back on to finish the test but we’ll have to see if it worked.  I’ve never had that happen before.  🙂

I drove Wilson up to Pismo Beach on Sunday for a school jazz band gig at the Veteran's Hall for an audience filled with vets from an era that loved to jitterbug.  The kids' renditions of "In The Mood" and "American Patrol" brought the house down.  I wanted to jitterbug so bad…I looked around the room to see if one of the old timers might dance with me.  Then, as an early bday present, Wilson came down offstage to dance during one of the songs in the set he doesn't play!  SO FUN!!!  He was a good egg to dance in front of his classmates…BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER!

Oh yeah, btw, it’s my birthday today.  48 and counting!  Grateful.

The family is heading to an annual Make-a-Wish fundraising event tomorrow to share about Rudy’s Wish Trip to Give Kids The World…we are honored to share our experience with the Make-a-Wish Foundation and are looking forward to a special evening out together.

Speaking of Give Kids the World….we shared a few years ago about a Rudy’s Beat friend in her own battle for survival…click here and scroll down to the end of the post.  Megan and her family got to visit Give Kids The World last week and they found Rudy’s paving stone that was placed on the Avenue of Angels after our visit last year…right in front of the Castle of Miracles!!!  So cool…Thank you Megan!!
