I am back finally!!!
Hi everyone!!! Thank you so much for the warm thoughts. We made it through Gustav pretty good. We had no power for 2 days which wasn't a big deal. I guess we are having problems with the phone lines because I am having issues getting an internet connection and keeping one, I don't know. Anyway we didn't have too much damage, some siding on the end of the house and around to the back was ripped off and we had some roof leaks inside. We will be getting a new roof and have to replace some lower sheetrock inside but nothing major. Donnie was a real trooper during the storm. He is getting over his first URI this season and was put on an antibiotic last week. On a side note, both of his ear tubes have come out but they are both still in the ear canal (no more ear plugs!!!). She said that considering he didn't have an ear infection with the URI we may not see any this winter, keeping fingers crossed. He had them for a year and a half and they definitely did their job. Hope everyone is doing well, and again thank you for your thoughts! -Liz

OH YEA! I am so glad you did not suffer much damage. Good to hear from you.

Ugh-Aubrey has a runny nose. I am not ready to start the ickies!!! I hope once the tubes fall out all stays well!!! Keep us posted when you can.

Hi there! I posted for you yesterday, lol. My BIL in Gulfport had called in and reported only power outage and minor damage. I figured you'd had the same. He lived in a camper for a year after Katrina! Compared to that, this was a breeze! Glad you made it through.
Check with your
doctor first!
