This is the first time I’ve written anything on our website. This will not be very long since I’m typing with my mouth stick- I can only push one key at a time. I think that there are probably several people still checking our blog. I apologize for not writing sooner. Getting back to “normal” has been much more difficult than we had anticipated. I realize that there have been hundreds of people following our story from the very beginning. We are so grateful for the overwhelming response-financially and spiritually. It still surprises me that so many people care. There are a couple of things I wanted to share about the response we’ve received. First- please don’t put us on a pedestal. We humbly receive all of the beautiful things people have said about us- but we are no better than anyone else. Also, I was beginning to feel like a reality TV show- (- with people waiting for the latest news of our lives. But now that we are out of the hospital, we are just trying to get our lives back. So please be patient with our long intervals of time between updates.
Aaron is doing very well. He is super tired all the time. He works about 9-10 hours a day at school. At home he tries to keep up with the cooking, laundry, cleaning, the cats, shopping- oh yeah… and taking care of me. He goes for 16-18 hours a day without hardly stopping. He does all of this so cheerfully. He never complains. I am amazed by his love and devotion. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband.
I am doing very well also. Every day I feel stronger and healthier. I can’t remember the last time I had to take pain medication. My pain is so much less than it used to be. My equipment is all working well for me. I am getting a new computer next week that will work better with the voice activated software. I also am getting a new cell phone in the next few days that will be easier to use. We’ve had several “technical difficulties” in the last couple of weeks- Aaron’s computer at school crashed- the internet at home stopped working- our laptop keeps freezing- and Aaron’s cell phone was stolen last Sunday at a restaurant. It seems as though we are constantly battling something.
Things with Sarah are working out really well. She is a tremendous help to us. She is also very cheerful about everything- never complaining.
I’m going to close now. My cheeks are getting tired from all this typing (about 2hours!) I will try to do another update soon. We love you all.
