Tomorrow marks Josiah at 8 weeks old. And, to celebrate I am leaving Charleston for 5 days. Yea, that's right. It is one of those things that had to happen at some point, but doesn't make it any more fun. I am going to spend the rest of the week with some of our students at Summersalt camp, and I am in this awkward place where I want to go, and I want to stay. I want to go, because it means that I may be getting a glimpse of what it will be like when we get over all this and get our lives back again. I want to stay here, because every day changes constantly here in the hospital, and even the most stable days can turn into really bad days really fast... I am hoping for really boring days while I am gone. This is the longest I have been away from our family in 8 weeks, and I don't expect to do it again anytime soon. In the weeks to follow, I will be going home more frequently to get some work done, but I do not intend to do so for this long...
do you know what has happened in the last 5 days? It's crazy!
