Momentary quick change in gears around here!

This blog is me... just a vehicle to talk about what we do, our adventures as a family (or mine as a mother), recipes, crafts, budget friendly stuff, and some home decor here and there. But since the big expansion of our family (see previous 2 posts in June), I'm making a momentary quick change in gears!

Our little Grant isn't getting any better. He keeps having more issues flare up. Two weeks ago he had a central line put into his chest and just the other day we found out that he's having breathing issues due to his left diaphragm being paralyzed (will never work again). So right now they're waiting to see if he needs surgery or not.

I mentioned last time that this hasn't been easy. It's downright turned into a nightmare within a dream. Greg's been home away from us for 3 weeks now. The big boys are over it and Jake told me this was "the worst vacation ever" (I agree buddy!). Grant's twin Luke is living very temporary like here with us (so tired of suitcase living),Theres just so much clashing with various family, everyone just wants to help but things are getting tense at just about every angle :(

We need to get home. But Grant is in no condition to be discharged any time we can see. Insurance will not cover a medical transport to Texas Childrens. I started looking into some Charity Air Ambulances and finally found one. However, it still costs money, $8350 to be exact. People have been telling me to start a paypal account and accept donations. So after much soul-searching Greg and I have decided to act upon this humbling show of kindness and do it!

I will spend this week finding out if Grant is stable enough to transfer then get the donation account up! Stay tuned and lets hope I can keep my sanity until then!
