5 times a charm!

Wow, after a fabulous weekend with the kids, sitting on a Sunday in a quiet house, everything seemed to crash down. I found out some of Arina's pictures were taken. Then the nasty comment from a person that assumes they know me, but gets the facts wrong!
I'm not going private, because I can't let these people win, and because there are too many good people that wouldn't be able to see why I started the blog in the first place! Awareness. Moms that are going through the same things will not feel alone! *By the way, if you ever want to email me privately, feel free to do so! Sometimes you just need another mother to talk to!

When I have more time to sit down tonight, I'm going to watermark my pictures. I'm not sure how to watermark past pictures though. I have like 3 years of blogging pictures that are not watermarked!
Nasty comments I try to quickly delete and move on. Its hard for me, because I can be quite confrontational when I feel I'm being attacked. But really, its pity I feel. If they are so educated and so smart, why are they going to blogs that they "claim" they don't like. Sounds like they have way too much time on their hands! But like I said, a lot of adoptive families, mostly through Reeces Rainbow, are determined to put a stop to it, which is why we put the tracker on our blogs. It literally shows us down to the persons street! I haven't heard from other families if it is working yet to deter people, we'll see!
After all, this sweet face is why we keep on blogging!! (this is one of my all time favorite pics of Jax!)

Today I had yet another appointment with a new ped. The morning did not start well. It was raining, and I forget that in Cali people do not drive when it rains, they creep. Then half way there my GPS died. I was going into Los Angeles, to a place I'd only been twice, and I had no GPS to tell me where to go!
So of course, we were about a half hour late to our appointment. Luckily, they let us stay.
He was amazing!
5th time is a charm right??
Right off the bat he gave me his email and pager number. He got us a referral to pulmonlogy, the only specialist we didn't have yet. He asked if there was anything we needed right now. He is going to get Jax set up on the medical home program, which will be a huge help as well. He is also the medical director, so I know he's the best.
Its amazing how at ease your heart is when you have someone good behind you. Now if we can make it to our neuro appointment without needing the ER first. Seizures are getting bad!

Wow, that sounds like an awesome find 5th time around! Persistence has paid off in finding someone that fits!

Great job and only a half hour late, I'm impressed. I'm sure I would have ended up someone on the side of the road balling my head off and many hours later arrive or given up completely.

My hat is off to you lady, you are top notch in my book!

Lacey - the watermark won't help, won't stop them from stealing. Didn't I send you those protection instructions before? Can't remember... E-mail me and I'll send them to you again!!!

So glad you found a wonderful Dr, it will be nice to have him in your corner! Oh, and how do you get that tracker thingy you mentioned?

Me said...

Yea for finding a new ped!

Is there a way to find out how to get the tracker? If you need to e-mail it to me, that's fine.

It's mmpson at gmail dot com.

Thank you! Glad to hear something went well today!

So I tried that watermarking technique I left in my comment on your post yesterday. It was really easy and basically gives you a button in photoshop to do a one click watermark! No more opening a second 'watermark image' and copying it into the photo. Try it!
{I also took most of my images off facebook. And will continue to delete posts off my blog after printing each year.}

Praise the Lord you found a Ped! Good! You do so much good and I'm glad you're staying public. That picture of Jax never gets old and ALWAYS warms my heart!

Sandryte said...

Hey Lacey, don't even pay attention to those losers. They are like voyarists - they feel satisfaction when we talk about them. That's pathetic!

Jax is so cute in that picture! You have adorable children :)

Vivielle said...

That is one ADORABLE picture. :0

I'm so happy you finaly found a ped that you like and is willing to work with you!!! I have the BEST one here for my kids, love all of them at the practice--I'm very lucky:) We just had a battle with pneumonia with my youngest, they were top notch and now he's finally healthy again!!!

I'm so sorry that people say nasty things. My own children know it's not OK to say mean things to and about people, I will never understand why adults can't figure that out. You have beautiful children and I LOVE to see the pictures of them:)

Sorry that you are having to deal with these people that evidently have nothing better to do with their time. Glad you found a ped you love. I live in Fresno and we have had a light dusting of snow twice in my lifetime (52 years) and the whole city shut down, so I know what you are saying about the rain, we had it the last two days. Love the picture of Jax, what a cutie!

I'm so glad you found a good pediatrician. I hope the rest of your team starts falling into place. Jax's eyes always get me, but THIS picture? Come ON!
