Hey guys............ So with my sister's ordeal I have kinda been absent from all of your lives for the last month - and I miss you! So catch me up. What has been going on? Tell me everything!!!! How are the kids, the dhs, the dogs, the job.................... I am hanging in there. I have had the flu for 4 days, and I still feel horrible. Wondering if it will ever go away. Still have a fever, and a cough. difficult child is being, welp, his self. Angry. However, he is reeling it in for the sake of my sanity, right now - lets hope this is a growing point in his life for him - and 2 months from now he does not let his angst rip his life apart again. He was really touched by my sister's memorial, and all of her life encapsulated into this one ceremony. We had all of these pictures of her life, and so many included him and her together - I think it really was powerful for him. Not that he could really say that - but I guess I could just tell. So many people came up to him at the memorial to talk to him about H. and her life, and how important he was to her. I know, at least for me, that was healing, extremely. And he did so well. I was proud of him. He carried on conversations, and made eye contact, and engaged these people - big progress for him with strangers. Anyhoo............look forward to hearing whatz up with you all. I miss my little cyber family, and knowing how each and every one of you are.
