No news means good news (and Mom is too sick to blog)

Yesterday was a bad day for me, health wise. It hurt to move and do even the simplest tasks. I just felt SICK. I went to bed ASAP instead of writing an update. Feeling so miserable gave me so much more empathy for my formerly miserable kiddos! However, they were all doing better yesterday and Will came home very happily.

Today was an even better day for everyone. Gavin got to do a really cool series of helicopter shuttles, moving three new families (including 7 toddlers!) into their village location; Gracie has been off oxygen nearly all day; Gracie, Seth and David rode on a pony (Will and Marcie were too nervous, which shocks me!) - pictures will follow at some point; and this evening Seth was running around playing in the yard for a few hours off oxygen. He was SO happy and excited! What a joy to see our kids coming back to normal. Isaac continues to be his happy, helpful self, running and fetching for me and holding needy babies. He's such a loving big brother.

Oh, and I'm a LOT better, too! :) I know Gavin is very excited about that. However, my arms are still really weak and achy, so I'm not lifting babies or hanging laundry. They have to come sit on my lap once I'm seated. Because competition for Mom's time/lap is pretty fierce and Mom isn't up to much, I'm not planning on getting David until Sunday or Monday. I MISS HIM! Here are some cute photos of him with the kitty where he's living. [He cried when his "older brother," a Senior, went to school on Friday. :) He just LOVES them so much!]

He not only brings the kitty food . . . 
. . . he hand-feeds the kitty!

He also gives the kitty books to read
