No Words

Sometimes words just aren't enough. Sometimes there aren't the right words. Sometimes tears are all you've got.
Yesterday the decision was made to send Adam home on hospice care. He was discharged today. The exact prognosis is not known, however it is likely a couple of weeks to a month at most. There are no words to describe how this news has shaken up my life and the life of my family. I have known deep down that this was coming, but I had hoped it would be much farther in the future. Please pray for Adam and Elizabeth as they face the difficult days to come.

Catching Up

 So yeah, it's August. When did that happen? I feel like the last half of July just kind of flew by. I guess that was because out in Arizona for most of it. YoungLives camp was amazing. I had a great team to work with and took care of some very sweet little ones. I fell in love with a brother and sister and it was hard to say goodbyes at the end of the week.

29 did not start out as the best year for me. I was sick with the sinus crud (miserably so). I was on call. I had one of the worst on call weeks ever. I didn't get much sleep. I was late for my own birthday dinner with my family thanks to being on call. I got a speeding ticket. A friend betrayed my trust. I couldn't even taste my birthday cake. I cried at work. My brother in-law was in the hospital all week. Being sick kept me from running with means no 5K next weekend. 
There were some bright spots. I got to spend my actual birthday evening with my very best friend. We went out to dinner and saw Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Part 2. It was wonderful. That was however followed up by a 1a call from the hospital and having to go in. My parent's got me a stand alone freezer, which I was really excited about. I've wanted one for a while, but have never gotten around to buying myself one. My Specials girls did lunch and cupcakes for me. They also got me flowers that I have managed to keep alive so far. 
All in all I guess I just have to take the good with the bad. Here's hoping 29 keeps improving. I could use a good year.
