Alive, well, and slightly insane
Hi all. Sorry I've not been posting. It's been just a little crazy... We have 14 people living in one house (well, some of us are sleeping in campers) and the guys have been going a hundred miles an hour to get our home finished. And then there's the fact that I had to have a tooth pulled a couple days ago. (It was a back molar - something that needed work right when Ellie was diagnosed a year ago, and I didn't take care of. Once I finally got around to it, it needed a root canal. I don't feel that those are healthy, so I had it pulled. Not fun.) On top of all that, we are having some adjustments being together again as a family after being apart for so long. One major adjustment - I'm not used to having two kids any more. It's still wonderful to be together, but I had forgotten how divided my attention gets between two children. And poor little Ethan hardly knows which end is up after the past difficult year. It will just take time.
I just wanted you all to know that we are alive and, if not well, then on our way to that. Thank you all for your prayers. I will try to get word out as often as possible, but if you don't hear anything in spurts, it's probably due to the business and chaos. In other words, no news is relatively good news. I may have a few gray hairs when it's all over, but I will have a home... so it balances out, right?
