No Fainting Here

Crud.  I missed my "once a week" resolve.  BUT, if I post twice this week, that should still keep me on target for my 52 posts.  So, I'm not out!  Nope.

And, I have a good excuse.  This has been a super-crazy week.  Super-super crazy.

Ellie and I went to Vancouver.  And when I say "Ellie and I", I mean only Ellie and I.  To all the single parents out there, I tip my hat to you.  To all the single parents of special needs kids, I throw myself at your feet.  While everything went well, and we both came back alive, I have to admit that it was a challenging few days.  Pushing a stroller, loaded up with a walker, a kid, 2 backpacks, while pulling a suitcase...not for the faint of heart.  Renting a car, getting all the crap in the car, pacifying a very tired 5 year-old, and finding a hotel in a big, unfamiliar city....not for the faint of heart.  Packing a bag full of toys, snacks, and all of Ellie's "medical stuff", navigating our way to the hospital, and running with the stroller in the Vancouver rain....not for the faint of heart.  Four doctor/therapist appointments in one day, with a girl-with-a-cold....not for the faint of heart.

Good thing my heart isn't faint.

And good thing we had so many people praying for us.

And extra-good thing that all the news we received from the doctors was GREAT.  I'll post the deets later this week.  Right now, I've got TV to catch up on...

BC Children's Hospital helped me out by supplying lots of toy-entertainment while waiting for all our appointments!

Wow! God bless you! I don't think I'd be brave enough to embark on such a journey alone with Malayna. I'm so glad you got great news though! Can't wait to read the deets!
