Having a sick baby is a lot of work, and having two small boys and our everyday responsibilities on top of Kaitlyn's demanding care has become impossible. We are in survival mode. Our priorities have changed. Things that once would have been considered to be on top of our to-do list have been put on the bottom or temporarily removed. The kids are number one. Kaitlyn's paper work and her therapies are next and everything else gets put on hold.
All the leaves up here in Western Michigan have fallen. Most people are working hard to get them up before the snow falls. We planned on ours waiting until spring, we have little time and zero energy. Sunday afternoon much to our surprise we heard noise in our front yard. Our close friends (who are also our next door neighbors) were raking our leaves. What an awesome random act of kindness. Thank you, thank you to Fred, Becky, Caden, and Morgan!
I would also like to thank everyone else who has been helping us out. We've needed to ask more favors then ever before in the last weeks and months since Kaitlyn was born. With her surgery next week we need to rely on a lot of upcoming help. Thank you to everyone who is rearranging their lives for us in the next weeks, whether its to be with the boys or Blair and I in Ann Arbor. We are truly thankful!
