Brief Debriefing

  • Michael is home! He came home Friday night, and is doing really well. We're all happy to have him home! When I told the kids Friday that I was going to pick Daddy up to eome home, Annabelle said, "You know what I'm gonna do as soon as Daddy gets home? Give him a really BIG hug!"
  • Heater is fixed. And it ended up costing more than he originally estimated. Of course. Because once he got in there, he found additional problems. Of course. But hey, at least we're not freezing our heinies off anymore.
  • Joey and Finn are doing somewhat better, although still not running at 100%. Joey did want to go back to school today though. Still waiting for the other kids (or myself) to come down with the stomach flu, and hoping that doesn't come to pass.
  • Lilah ended up in the ER yesterday after taking a dive - from a standing position! - off her sister's top bunk bed and smacking her head on the hardwood floor. It was frightening. I didn't see it happen, but was in the room in seconds, and she was dazed and unfocused, and then cried for a solid half hour. Head injuries scare the crap out of me! And I never know how serious they are (god knows all my kids have hit there noggins on various hard surfaces numerous times, and I never know if I should panic or not). Anyway, she was thoroughly examined in the ER and deemed okay. Phew!
I promise I will stop using these annoying bullets in the near future. It's all I've been able to manage of late - blogging on the run.

Yeah - glad he's home and doing well, glad boys are feeling better and glad heater is fixed! WAY SCARY about Lilah - what do those children have going through their minds when they leap off of tall things???!!! Lisa

Thanks for the update! Glad to hear all is basically well. Can't believe Lilah's courage :)

Glad to hear Michael is home and well. And that the boys are feeling better. Here's hoping nobody else gets sick.

And Lilah? Off the top bunk? Eeek! My scariest was when my 2 yr old went tumbling head over heels down the basement stairs to the concrete floor below.
