N/G don't know hump hm

So I've been trying to fix WMP for the past two hours or so... it won't play anything, and when I try to reinstall it, it says installation is incomplete or incompatible with my system, WTF? So, I've been trying to reinstall, reprogram, and several system restores trying to figure out what the hell is going on....... But when I get it, I'll get to the rest of the stuff later, I just hope it can be fixed, cause really, why wouldn't windows media player work since I was XP????

Also, Jacob went in for allergy tests last Thursday, trying to find a reason for all these ear infections, and everything else, why he gets stuff so easily, and can't seem to fight anything off.... Well get this, I swear only Jacob, so we go in, a full panel, all 52 of them, and he was allergic to exactly ZERO! Nothing, we were all sure he was allergic to something causing his body to fight harder to work at the little stuff, or a possible food allergy, but nope. He was diagnosed with what they call "Nonallergic Rhinitis", of course, he has allergies without allergies.... Basically it means, he has the constant drainage, colds, congestion, stuff like allergies, without being allergic to anything, but he still has 'triggers' weather changes, outdoor pollutants...indoor chemicals, but they can't be treated. I was so sure he was allergic to something, but I quick thinking I was right about anything with Jacob. Well they also ran blood tests that day, to look for other causes of his constant problems, basically a CBC, antibody levels and pneumococcal levels. That's what your body uses to fight stuff off, your bodies own immunities that build up, against things such as sinus and ear infections, pneumonia, basically infections of the lungs, bloodstream and meningitis. There are 23 types of this pneumococcal antibodies that are supposed to be present in the body to fight off each type of pneumococcal bateria. Well, the nurse called Thursday night at 6:30 with his results, which made me wonder since it was well past business hours. His CBC and antibody levels were normal, which is good, but I asked "Then what's wrong" because something didn't sound right. Of the 23 pneumococcal anitibodies most people have to fight off these infections, Jacob only has six that are in the normal range, leaving his body exposed to these other 17 bacteria without any way to fight them off, why when William would get a small cold, Jacob would run with it and be sick for a week with fevers and infections, and worse stuff as we saw last fall. So, we went in yesterday for a pneumococcal vaccine shot, basically it's a shot to hopefully kick start the body's natural response or fill in for the missing antibodies. Usually this shot is used for eldery people to help fight off pneumonia or people who have health problems leaving there immune systems weak. So, I asked if this means that Jacob doesn't have an immune disorder, and they said they can't rule that out yet. So, now we have to go back again in four weeks and have his blood redrawn to see if this shot took effect and helped kick start the natural immunities he's supposed to have. If not, then, well, I honestly don't know. He might have some Immune Disease that will leave him suseptable to many many things, kind of like why he's had 20 ear infections but he's ears themselves aren't in bad condition. Also why so many of these antibiotics seem not to work on him. I just pray this shot works, because I can't imagine the other possiblities, along with the other things that's going on with him right now with possible Asperger's and waiting for that, the poor kid seems like he's going through so much, but he's still happy little Jacob, well not so little anymore, and leaving mommy scared and worried to death about him... what can I say, he's always kept my on my toes.....

Only four more weeks of school for us, and four and a half for William, we're trying to get him into the Magnet School down here, Academy of Science and Forgein Language, kids have to be interviewed and accepted into the school, and we think he'll be much better in that environment to learn and study, and even his second grade teacher from last year said that William needed more of a challenge than regular school. By middle school they start with either French, Russian, or German for language, and they offer, Lazer optics, chemistry, Lego's, Robotics, and such, for high school credits, in middle school!!! And they still think, Jacob has a photographic memory, or maybe he's just that smart and that's why he's having these problems because he's being held back already.... I have no idea where these kids came from......

I cannot wait for CSI Thursday, it looks so hilarious. And I'm still mad at Danny, the jerk, and how can he be any cuter than quoting "Jaws" and then acting like that, asshole.... He better make this right.....

Your icon pretty much wins at life.

Oh Kelly, *gathers you up for a hug* you've had rough time of it recently haven't you. (rhetoric) I'm crossing my fingers that the vaccine works for Jacob, which I'm sure it will. Why is it thought that Jacob possibly as Asperger's?

I hope you get William in to the Magnet School, it sounds incredible. being the smart little cookie that he is, I'm willing to be that he'll get in just fine. And I wouldn't be surprised if Jacob has either the photographic memory or is wickedly smart. Both your boys seem really intelligent based upon everything you've said which isn't surprising considering your pretty smart too. and you seem to foster their learning pretty well. Good for you!

Thursday going to be a busy night with not only all the CBS shows, but Ugly Betty and Grey's returning as well. I think we'll get some good one-liners from the ep - and dare I hope some screentime with those delicious boys... And Danny, well Danny's got issues. I just want to wrap him up and take him home (over course I have my own motives at play as well :D) I don't agree with his actions but I understand the different elements at play in his decision. - I said I wasn't going to get involved in the show, but now I've gotten sucked in.

Thanks sweetie... actually I had to take him back to the Dr. this morning... his been all congested and not sleeping well, and of course, his ear infection is back, or never really went away, and worse than before... so back on another medication, this time back on Omnicef.... we haven't tried that for a year or so, so hopefully this will work again... it's been so much for him. I stopped by work to tell them I wouldn't be in today, and his teacher couldn't believe he had another ear infection, he's been fine, she mentioned this may help him get into Vanderbilt sooner, for medical reasons also, and may be a reason to home school him, because I can't imagine how sick he'd be once he gets into public school next year...... He really need to get his hearing tested again, but we can't until his ears are clear..... I'm so worried...I am afraid it may damage his hearing permanately, plus all this other stuff.. But he's still smart enough to run rings around all of us, including his teacher....

I don't think William will have a problem getting in at all either, and I think he's really excel in a place like that, where the kids want to learn and be there.... I don't know where my kids got it from... actually all of this had made me think about going back to school for my Master's in childhood education, not teaching, but learning problems... But I would never consider what Jacob may have a learning problem, the only problem we may have is keeping up with him....

I'm so looking forward to tonight's show, looks Nick heavy, and hilarious...and ugh, I'm still pissed at Danny, I don't care how hot he looked last Wednesday night talking about Jaws, but ugh, he's so aggrevating.... I still don't really watch Miami, it it's on reruns and nothing is on, but I really like NY, I've always like Gary Sinese, but the other characters have drug me in....especially D/L, and I really need to get season 3 on DVD.... But first, I need to start my annual fund drive for the site, especially because of Jacob's medical bills this year.... I just pray this shot works....
