The Opening Blog

Life is full of twists and turns, there certainly isn't a user's manual for parenting! Our youngest daughter has been battling a mysterious illness for 8 weeks now and it has turned her life upside down. Last night she found out that you never know who you can and can't trust... One of her classsmates at school and one of her basketball teammates was nasty on the text messaging on the phone telling her she had no business on the basketball team because she has missed so many practices. If she's sick, she should just drag a trash can out to practice and throw up in it when necessary. She further went on to state that the only reason Bubby made the team was because her dad is the principal.

What is frustrating is her coaches were aware of Bubby's illness and apparently haven't shared it with the team (or at least how sick she has been). Bubby's meeting with the coach tomorrow and i am afraid she's going to hang up her basketball shoes. This is certainly a difficult thing to deal with as an old coach, I don't ever want a kid to quit a team, but this drama is not worth the stress it's causing Bubby. She needs to focus on getting healthy and relieve the stress of the drama the hoops season has been causing.

Hopefully the tests at the hospital scheduled for next week will give us some answers and relieve some frustrations!
