life is constantly changing as we all know.
jace is 5 now, his birthday was on wednesday and his party is this saturday. he had his appt at the UofI hospitals with a new pediatric GI surgeon. We really liked the 2 doctors that we met there. They changed around his medications and are pulling all of his record to go back through them. They agree that we are missing something somewhere. We are hoping that they are as dedicated as we are to get to the bottom of this. We felt like they truely listened to the entire story. Most just say he doesn't look malnurished all must be good. They took quality of life, social and everything and looked at it as one huge picture. So we are hoping for the best. They said it will take 4 to 6 weeks to truely get an idea of how the medication changes will do, so we wait and watch.
in other news. as you clearly saw i've changed my look. everyone is loving it. i'm not sold on it but that's ok. it will take time i suppose. lots of things are changing with me. i'm trying to figure out where exactly i fit in my family, and all of that. i'm not feeling right now as though i fit in my marriage at all, and that scares me. i'm feeling pretty isolated, and like i've lost a friend. not exactly sure where to go from here, but i suppose the road will make itself clear at some point. as of now i've been told "Let's move on" so that's what i'm doing, i'm just unsure where "on" is.
the kids are good. school starts on the 20th. they are all excited. we need to finish up a few basic school supplies, and do some clothes shopping. Emily and Jace will obviously be in school 5 full days a week, and Ben will be in school 5 mornings a week. So Ari and I will have some time just the 2 of us. I'm sure she will greatly enjoy that!
My parents are on their way into town now. They will be here for the weekend. Jace's birthday party is on Saturday and he's super excited! my parents, his aunt and uncle, and his 2 best friends will be there! After his party we are going to go swimming at our apartment complexes private pool. the kids are pretty excited about that! I probably won't blog much this weekend, but I will try to get on and update with photos soon!
oh and for those who have been asking here are the links to photos of the home we just moved from. These are photos from some of the rains, the last flooding, and then photos for our attorney of the mold and damage and such on move out day. There aren't many pictures of the actual flood as we were WAY to busy during that time saving our things. we didn't think to take pictures! :) there are a few though.
