The blood work is done! The RPGR is headed for Manchester, England, due to arrive tomorrow and the INAD arrived in Portland, Oregon, this morning (5 hours earlier than expected). Hooray for FedEx tracking numbers!
We've had an extemely busy few days. Here's a brief recap:
Thursday - 5 hours driving, 1 hour speech therapy
Friday - 2 hours driving, 2 hours waiting for an appointment to examine my retina (for further information on how to test for William) that turned out to be unnecessary since I'm 4 months pregnant and the doctor wouldn't dilate until 6 months, 3 hours grocery and errands
Saturday - 2 1/2 hour trip into town for supplies I forgot to pick up on Friday, girls sewing, putting quilt together
Sunday - church, family visit, home to prepare for trip to city, 5 hours of driving
Monday - drive to city, labs for William, therapy, visit family, visit more family, go eat dinner = 7 hours in the van and home at 11:30pm
Tuesday - extremely tired, Wallace woke up at 6:30am, girls at 8:45, and William slept until 9, put his processors on him, went to put his glasses on and they weren't in his case, PANIC, we all looked around frantically for an hour, remembered Sarah giving them to me last night when he went to sleep in the van, I put them on a white sack because I was on the phone and couldn't reach his case at that moment, forgot about them, got home, Michael gathered trash in the dark at midnight, took trash to curb, trash men came at 7am
Needless to say, I am extremely frustrated with myself! I called to replace his eyeglasses. For another $250 that we didn't count on, they will be ready on Friday. She asked if I was sure I lost them and laughed when she saw he'd only had them A MONTH! Not greatly funny, if you ask me.
On another note, Wallace is walking. While this is, in and of itself, very exciting, it is also exhausting! Who ever heard of an 8 month old walking? I am reminding myself that I am very thankful that he is strong and healthy!
