Home one month today!

Isabelle has been home on Lopez for one month! It has been a difficult month. Isabelle has been sick 95% of the time. She is finally starting to feel better. Still has a bit of a cough and runny nose. We are still doing breathing treatments twice a day. We will see the cardiologist this month at Children's Hospital...hope the visit brings us good news. Kevin took almost all the kids, and one friend to the Western Washington Fair this weekend. I have been home with Madeline and Isabelle. It has been a great time for the two of them to get to know each other better. Madeline feels like she is in charge with out Nick and Grace around. Nick and Grace are great helpers with Isabelle...but, poor Madeline gets left out. They spend their days helping with Isabelle and Madeline has really felt left out and displaced. We had a lot of tears the first few days we arrived home. Madeline turns five tomorrow and starts Kindergarten on Wednesday...she is so excited and ready for school. She is already reading little books to me at night. It will be nice have just Madeline and Isabelle home for the mornings, as Kindergarten is 12:00-3:00 each day.

I will try to update again soon.
