GOOD NEWS!

On the home front, it's been chaotic to say the least. The baby is home now (MY home...my husband and I are kinship foster parents to both daughter's, the baby and ten year old...not by choice, but necessity...long story there), and seems to be doing good.

Stacy is now out of the drug induced coma and off of life support, but she has brain damage. They are not sure what the extent of the damage is. She is also showing stroke-like symptoms, which the Dr's said was to be expected following the grand mal seizures brought on by Eclampsia. Only time will tell on her recovery, and she is not out of the woods yet.

On a brighter note...

I GOT MY FIRST CHECK IN THE MAIL FOR MY WRITING!!!

I have started on the second Gerard the Gede story, and it is soooo cool! When I finish, I will post it!

I also want to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers. I hope to get back to my blogging soon, but I am just too dang old to be staying up all night with a newborn and still functioning!

I'm so glad to hear the good news-- I was wondering. And I'll continue hoping for more good news to come.

Good luck with the baby-- I don't expect to see you around here too much!

What Dan said--I've been checking in every other day or so in hopes of a good outcome. I hope Stacey will be okay. How great of you to take on the girls. I wish I lived anywhere near you to help--what a terrific person you are!

Get some sleep when you can! :)

Would love to see you at the group meeting dear, but understand the complications of your new found practical mothership. Best wishes to Mother, child and kinship foster parents.

I love money, and I bet it's just better when it comes from writing.

P.S. I think me and Katie are totally going to Conestoga, if you're still able to do it.
