Dancing Saturday

Alannah in costume for her hip hop solo.  Tu Tu’s and Tennis Shoes

I spent the day with my granddaughter at her dance competition.  Alannah competed in four dances.  Tap, clogging, hip hop and a solo in tap.  She did great and placed high in all of her categories.

I was just outside with the dog and I looked up through the trees and saw this beautiful full moon.  It was in the low 70’s today.  I love living in the Carolinas.

So, an update on my thumb.  As the day went on yesterday, my thumb and the palm of my hand was getting more painful.  Finally, it was throbbing so much that I took the bandage off and wow, my thumb was infected.  Off to the ER I went.  They had to remove all the sutures and the clotting material that they had put on it.  Let me tell you I was seeing stars.  So, now I am on two antibiotics and an antibiotic ointment to the area three times a day.  I am hoping that this thumb heals without a surgery.

Yesterday was my grandson Andrew’s 13th birthday and my granddaughter Isabella’s 1st birthday.  Tomorrow, my daughters and their families are coming down to celebrate Andrew’s birthday.  We now officially have a teenager in the family.  At the end of the month I will be going to Miami to celebrate Isabella’s birthday.  I can’t wait to see her.  At this age they change so quickly.
