I know... it's been approximately forever since I've posted. The reason being: I hate people that are all negative, all the time and I didn't have much in the way of positive to post, so I thought I'd wait until I did...


So, just a quick run down. I had my surgery, I was better for about a week and things went down hill fast and furious. The latest update from my doctor is "I just don't know if there is anything we can do to help you anymore." There isn't too much else worth throwing in there so I'll leave it at that.

Bigger news: I applied for a new job. I'm about 80% sure I wouldn't be able to leave the job I have now that I love so so so much... but it would be a really great opportunity for my family. So, at the end of the week I'm going to turn the blog private for probably a month or so. Not to worry though, I probably won't have written any posts during that time anyway.

The fun stuff: Baby Olive is walking!  She is really getting around. I think it's pretty clear that she is definitely lacking some depth perception as she has a hard time whenever the floor color changes (she can't distinguish between a rug and a step), so she takes quite a few tumbles but kids are resiliant and she is just so incredibly proud of herself that you can't help but smile when you see her.

The last 8-9 months have been, hands-down, the hardest I've ever had to survive. Yesterday I called Sean in tears asking him if he was going to leave me if my shoulder kept getting worse. Of course, he told me I was absolutly crazy and this is that "in sickness..." part of our vows. I don't know how in the world I will ever make this up to him, but I'll spend the rest of my life trying.

Have a WONDERFUL 4th of July (if that's your thing)... I'll be back very soon, I promise!
I love you all!!

I'm sorry your shoulder isn't better. That's just not fair.

And good luck with the new job! Or not? No matter what you decide to do, I think it's always beneficial to go through the process and explore your options. And more money is nice, but sometimes not worth loving a job and coworkers that you really love.

Isn't this just the way life is?! On one hand, totally crappy and on the other such happy news. BOOOO I'm sorry about your shoulder. All I can think is, "What the H?!" SO excited to hear about Olive, though. I love seeing babies get back up again after a fall. Reminds me that resilience is a necessity in this life.
