Purple Day was lovely for us. It began with Dezh not wanting to change out of her UK jammies (with good reason, the Cats are going all the way!) which are blue and white. Finally we got her in ALL purple, except the pink tennis shoes she really wanted to wear. I wore purple too, including a sequin headband. Curtis had to go to the dental lab and wore blue scrubs. (I suggested that he put on my purple shirt under his pink scrubs and the purple would just peak out the v-neck and it would be sooo cute! He didn't love that idea.) Too bad he didn't have those great purple scrubs like Leanne and Isaac!!
Although Dezh had had a bit of a fever throughout the weekend we decided to get out on Saturday while Curtis was studying. She was on Klonopin for most of the weekend (doctors orders) to protect her from having seizures with the fever, so she looks pretty out-of-it in most of the pics we took.
We went to the mall and got Dezh's ear's pierced! She LOVES earrings and has been asking for them for a long time. I explained that it would hurt but she just looked around cautiously. She stiffened up when they actually pierced her ears, and whimpered a bit, but as soon as she saw herself in the mirror she was VERY HAPPY! Of course we got PURPLE earrings! Oh she is so cute!!! I am nervous that perhaps I made the wrong decision. I wonder if she will get infected or want to pull on them for the sensation. If such things become a problem we will take the earrings out but right now she is hardly touching them and loves to look at them. I think it has made her happier! YEAH!
I would really, really, really like to thank my sweet friends who actually dressed up on Purple Day to support my daughter and other people they know with epilepsy as well. Thank you.
