So many of you have been so wonderful to us. Brian has been excellent about getting back to everyones posts and email. I apologize that I have not been so interactive. Our situation is tough. We have not yet recovered from the ordeal of losing Kelsey. I watch my husband and there is so little I can do to comfort him. I play with my daughter when she is awake, and every night I check her to make sure she is breathing. Hell even if I think she has been napping too long I check her. I am working as much as my body will allow me to without passing out from exhaustion. Work has saved me from losing my mind. I could not bear sitting at home day in and day out thinking about the tragedy that befell us.
My friends, you are all wonderful. I do read your posts of encouragement and love and support. They mean the world to me as I am sure they do Brian. I am thrilled for your successes (Mike and Mike, Sarah, and Rachel) and dismayed by your setbacks (Kepi, Amani and Bob, Lisa and Bob, Gerry and Rhonda, and Michelle and Steve) Also, I am heartened by your determination to continue your journeys. I pray for you all. You all have my appreciation and love.
Riley is growing and becoming more wonderful everyday. Whenever she smiles I know that every hurdle we have faced and are going to face is well worth it. She is amazing.
To all those that donated to my Heart walk, I thank you as well. I was able to raise 300.00 for the American Heart Association in one week and was the second highest contributor to my team in Radiology (I think). It was all for a good cause and my body has still not forgiven me for walking 3.2 miles without a break!
Remember I am still here even though my responses are slow in coming. I will be back up to chatter mode once I get some sanity back into my life.
Here a few pics. Riley is going to be a pink bunny for halloween, so here is a small preview…
