I figured I would give a quick update as our trip comes to a close.
We are so very happy we came. As we were in the hospital last week, I went back and forth on whether or not we could make the trip. Alex was still not 100% and I was absolutely exhausted. What finally made the decision was how badly Alex and I wanted to see our family. We hate being so many states away and only getting to see them a few times a year. So I got home Monday night after 9:00 and left the houst at 6:00 Wednesday morning. The time inbetween was full of laundry, unpacking, repacking and very little relaxation. But boy was it worth it. Alex and I have had a great time. Alex and Skye have played and fought and shared and hugged and cried together like two brothers. They are as different as can be, but at the end of the day they love each other. I have had time to chat and laugh with my mom, my sister, my dad, my stepdad and even my godmother. So as tired as I was I'm glad I made the choice I did.
Buggy is doing pretty good. His first day here was rough. He didn't get a nap and he was tired and hurting. Since then he has been sleeping really well and feels pretty good. The weather hasn't helped any as it has been FREEZING! We will run labs when we get home and be sure he is doing okay.
We continue to pray about a job for Bruce. As the months go by our situation becomes more and more precarious. At this point we have only survived the last few months by the generosity of friends and family. We hope one day we can repay the love and support we have received. Please pray for a job quickly as our insurance is once again not paid this month. We hold on to the hope that we are in God's hands and he has a perfect plan for us.
I will update once we are home (Wed) and settled.
