Just wanted to quickly update. I do not get on much but I think of all of you often.

Michael is not improving. He is still out of work w/o pay and do not know when he gets to return. We go back to the Dr on Mon.

I am trying to be strong. I am in tears with pain by bedtime but I know as a Mom I have to take care of my kids. Allstate has paid for our truck to be fixed and I am just dealing with the pain until I see the ortho Dr on the 16th. BTW Allstate told me that they would pay for my treatment according to how much damage was done to our truck. What??? You can be seriously injured and have very little damage. My Mom's wreck in Jan only done like 3000 in damage but she is injured for life. I know the wreck was what injured me and they will pay for my treatment or I will go to an attorney.

Braddy is continuing to improve. He is drinking a lot more but went on a food strike. Unless he can feed himself he won't eat. He does OK with it but I know he doesn't get enough. Hopefully this is just a stage.

Prestyn now has his first tooth. He finally cut his tooth on Tues. The other one probably will be through tomorrow. They are having a hard time with the reflux right now. They vomit really bad in the afternoon and evening time. They will just cry with it too. I am going to discuss this with the pedi at their check up next week. They are only eating 1 stage 2 baby food between both of them twice a day. They have 4-5 5 oz bottles a day. They will drink juice or water from the sippy periodically throughout the day. I know I am not overfeeding them. I an thinking it is their teething.

Thank you Melissa and Donnessa for the input on Brad. I have debated and had to give the answer by today. I want him to stay where he is. I think it is best for him to stay with children his age. They have agreed that if he is too far ahead on something to allow him to go to first grade and participate while his class is involved in that activity. I feel this is best for him.

I am going to try and crash for 2 hrs. I feel like I just lay down when it is time for me to get the kids ready and start another day. Thankfully Braddy and the babies sleep until 1030 or so. This gives me time to clean house and do laundry before my chasing the vacumn cleaners start. LOL.

Thinking and praying for all of you. Carla

Carla - I'm sorry to hear that Michael still isn't doing well. I'm concerned that they aren't doing more to help him. Hopefully he'll be on the road to recovery very soon.

Is there any way that the ortho can squeeze you in sooner? I can't imagine dealing with that kind of back pain for 2 more weeks - it hurts just to think about it. Glad to hear that the insurance is being reasonable and fixing the truck though. I think you guys need to consider purchasing a tank with the luck you've had lately with accidents!! LOL :-)

Yeah for the teeth for the twins! We were dealing with a horrible reflux flare yesterday after Halley's surgery and it brought back such awful memories. I think of your sweet little ones often.

Glad you were able to make a decision on Brad. It's hard to decide when they are on the bubble like that, but I know you've done what's best for him.

Now, leave that housework alone and GET SOME REST!
