Another Friday is here. I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or because I don’t do much but these weeks go so fast￼. I’m not bored Most days I’m amazed at how fast the day went. I use to say the days go slow but the years go fast. Now it seems everything is speeding on by. My daughter is 21. She’s a senior in college. That alone is enough to shock me. However in an old draw we uncovered this….
That was her 1st birthday invitation. Look at that face. My sweet little munchkin. When you think back it seems like ages ago but at the same time hard to believe that was 20 years ago. Now my beautiful girl is a beautiful woman.
At here age, I met her dad. Now that’s a scary thought.
I don’t know why I got all sentimental this morning. I woke up to a text from her about an order we received for her cochlear implants being wrong. My daughter is actually deaf. I’ve blog her story before and you can read it here. https://multipleexperiences.org/2017/05/27/my-daughters-triumph-being-deaf-with-cochlear-implants/ and part 2 https://multipleexperiences.org/2017/05/28/part-2-my-daughters-triumph-being-deaf-with-cochlear-implants/. I didn’t pay attention to the emails and they actually sent the wrong thing. I’m usually on top of this kind of stuff especially her Cochlear Implants and I wasn’t. It was clear they were sending the wrong thing, I never looked. I never even opened the package before I resent it to her. Very unlike me. I guess it bothered me I dropped the ball.
I was upset with her over her disregard for my safety regarding Covid especially so close to my infusionInfusion aftermath. I wasn’t feeling well still Weather, Infusion or just fatigue and she’s out hanging at fraternity houses. Because of this, she didn’t come home when she was supposed to. I was upset. She’s 21, I wouldn’t be any different at her age I’m sure. I just always put her first, I was hurt she didn’t do the same for me. Unfortunately this was the same thing that happened when Covid first hit in March, also right after my infusion. We have since reconciled and talked about this, otherwise it wouldn’t be discussed in my blog.
However, I dropped the ball. When I saw her text, I felt bad. Especially when I realized that the email from the cochlear implant company said exactly what was shipping. If I read it, I would have known it was wrong. This will all be fixed, it just maybe brought me back to when she was that 3 year old girl. When she first got these cochlear implants and how long ago that really was. Yet here we are 18 years later and I’m still her advocate making sure it gets corrected. Time goes quickly and slowly.
