Checking In

It’s been a while since I posted, so I thought I would let you guys know what is going on with Nick.

He has had a REALLY great start to the school year.  He has been struggling with a sinus infection for a few weeks, but he is getting better.  We actually went and played tennis last night. 

He went to Chapel Hill on Wednesday – his weight and his lung function were down, but we contribute that to the sinus infection. 

He has a new special “friend.”  Her name is Ashley and she is good medicine for him. 

We are all busy with life…John is working hard, as usual.  After a long, wonderful life of service, his truck passed away and we had to purchase a new car.

Miranda just celebrated her 14th birthday.  She got an electric, acoustic Fender.  It is solid cedar and it is gorgeous!   

I started work in my new job as a 7th grade Language Arts and Social Studies teacher at  the middle school I attended.  It is so wonderful to be back where I grew up.  I am actually teaching the children of some of the people I went to school with – and that is hilarious.  You can look at some them coming down the hallway and be able to say, “Hey!  I know exactly who your mama or daddy is.”  🙂

Brian and Heather are doing well also.  Heather has a new job and is LOVING it and it is so hard to believe that Kailey will be a year old in a few days.  She is growing up SO fast.

SO…we are all doing well.  We haven’t fallen off the face of the earth.  I have just been so busy.  I’m going to try to do better.  If you have a Facebook, look me up and friend me.  You can definitely keep up that way.  We are so thankful that Nicholas is well and that everything is going along smoothly.  Thanks for checking in.

Our Special Visitors

We got such a treat today.  Brian and Heather came to visit with us and of course they brought Kailey.  It was wonderful to see her.  Nicholas nor Miranda have seen her since the day she came home from the hospital.  Mama came in with Miranda while they were here so they got to see her too.  It is amazing how much she has changed since she was born – even in the last week.  I saw her for a bit last Saturday and she looks different from then.  She is such a content little sweetheart.  It was great medicine.  Here are some pictures!

   

Wednesday the 15th

Well, so far today has been just a normal day of routine meds and therapies.  Neither one of us slept that well last night so we are kindof draggin’ today.  The school teacher has been by so we are going to try to get some of his work done after lunch.  It’s slow going but this is how it goes.  I have noticed that his cough is already getting a little worse and that is what it’s supposed to do.  As the anitbiotics begin to work, they loosen up things and they are able to be moved out.

Brian and Heather have been having some issues at home with Kailey and Heather – they are alright and things will work themselves out, but the last couple of days have been hard for new parents.  Please say a little prayer for all three of them.
