An Overdue Update

It's been a crazy few weeks here.

Leaf is getting a trach - apparently tonight, based on the phone call I just got. We were planning for Thursday, then Saturday, and now today. Ahhhh!

Then we're probably transferring about an hour and a half away to a larger hospital to have her PDA surgically closed.

And then hopefully home to try to find our groove again, this time with more appointments to shove in the same amount of time.


Acorn has not slept a full night since his hospital stay. We're all exhausted.

He's also on a potty strike....unless it involves running around naked and peeing on the stairs, which makes them slippery. At least he wasn't hurt falling down them.

We're waiting for a spot to have him evaluated for a speaking device. I'm hoping it goes well; we're all terribly frustrated with his limited communication skills


All in all, this stay at home mom thing is mostly working. I'm less stressed, the house isn't a total disaster, and no one has died. Here's to the next 4 1/2 months.

  1. I am not really sure what to write. Repeating "good luck" over and over seems shallow - yet that is what I wish you. Lots and lots of good luck, and maybe a break to catch your breaths.
