Crazy two days!

What a week.........and it's only Tuesday.

- Got Savannah picked up early from school, and she got part of her braces put on then ran her to Sharon's work to catch car pool for gym
- Had friends over for dinner (she is having surgery in the AM, and wanted to make sure she did not have to cook or clean before she went)
- Savannah had gym until after 8pm, then had to pick her up
- A friends 18 month old spent the night

- Dominick had a mole removed, they are sending it off to check it for cancer (keep your fingers crossed)
- Dear friend Angie is having a total hysterectomy this morning (and 18 months ago with the birth of her daughter (c-section) she almost died from blood loss so that make me soooooo worried
- Savannah has her first band concert (with a very sore mouth)
- Aaron has Physical Therapy, and is not sleeping well from the nerve pain from his back surgery (hope it helps soon)
- Our close friends have been evacuated from their home in Rancho Bernando, so far all is well, no looting, but the neighborhood is a ghost town and the fires are way to close (maybe this will convince them to move back to Oregon, we miss them!)

Things have got to slow down! Too many things to worry about this week!

New job!!

Aaron has a new job, he is a "Financial Reporting Analyst" now. Still for the hospital but NO budgeting involved. WOO HOO!! This is one of the things that we have been hoping for, as he disliked, no make that hated budgeting with a passion!

Hopefully this will lessen some of the stress that he has had a work for the past couple of years, and make our home life happier also! :)

Random thoughts,comments, etc....

So it has been a while since I last wrote. Things have been busy around here.

Here is a few random thoughts, comments, & blurbs about the past month or so.

Aaron's surgeon is awesome! Instant relief of about 70% of the pain he had before surgery was gone instantly. It is taking a while to get his strength back after being down flat for a month. He starts Physical Therapy this morning, so he may feel like crud tomorrow.

Mother flew in from Arizona for two weeks to help out, I really appreciate all that she did.

Our kids are awesome! They have been so helpful while Aaron was not feeling well. No complaining about the extra chores, or having to have others take them places becuase I could not be in two places at once.

Our friends and family are the best! I have never had so many offers of help, foood, taking the kids here or there, keeping them overnight

Autism SUCKS!
Fall is a wonderful season! I love all the leaves changing colors, and we can't wait to go to the pumpkin patch this coming weekend.
I love my husband more now than ever! I cherish this past month, taking care of him, worrying about him, just brought us closer together!
