Still Alive



Yes I am still alive, but at times feel I am a step away from death. Life has been busier than ever. I have been doing my best to juggle everything. I am able to keep up with work/school/family/and church, anything other than that has been set aside for the last couple months. I hope all my friends know how much I love them and miss them, even though it seems as though I have fallen off the face of the earth. So I also thought I should post a little about the happenings in our life. The kids started school last month, they are not diggin the fact that they have to wear uniforms everyday, but they are getting used to it. I think it is pretty laid back dress code, jean, khaki, or navy blue bottoms, maroon, or grey shirts, Kenzie is wearing a white one in this photo because I thought white was included in the dress code, but I was wrong. It was sad that a teacher at the school(me) had to get a note home saying that her child must come in uniform,OOPPS. Let's see what else? I am back in school full time, I am taking an audiology course, a language analysis course as well as a practicum. I am still doing auditory training with the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing students, but the week before school started, a couple teachers quit and so a lot of shuffling had to be done, so I am also the kindergarten support teacher for the 5 DHH students, it has been a lot, but I am learning a lot as well. My sign language is definitely improving. Jeremy's health has continued to spiral out of control at times. We finally got my insurance through work so I was able to take Jeremy to a hospital in California, they were able to figure out a little more about what is going on. They even told us that had we not taken him there that by this time next year, he would have permanent brain damage. SO SCARYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!! Hopefully this new medication will help take care of his seizures and other issues. Please keep us in your prayers. He Will not like that I brought his health up, but we need all the prayers we can get. Hope you are all doing well and life is treating you good. We love and miss you all!

Alison!
As usual, I am in awe of all you are able to accomplish. You have a wonderful family.

I hope that Jeremy gets some good care, and some good answers to all that is going on with him.

It was nice to see you for a minute last, but I hope visit with you sometime in better circumstances.....
