Tuesday June 7th, 2011

Sorry I am late in posting. Things are getting busier now that summer is here. Josh still has school until the end of next week, and he is desperately waiting for his summer vacation to begin. The week following that, Ella will begin Kindergarten readiness camp. Her school requires 2 full weeks of full day school to make sure the kids are ready for Kindergarten and to see where they are emotionally and scholastically. So far I am so happy with the school. they are really doing everything in their power to make sure Ella has a positive environment and experience at school. I feel like she will be in good hands, but I know she is scared. She won't know anyone and will be leaving her comfort zone for a totally new environment. I'm nervous for her and doing my best not to let it show to her, and to try to get her excited about the fun things she will be doing. I will keep you posted on how that goes.

Ella did better towards the end of the week. she didn't vomit after clinic and her tiredness only lasted a few days. Knock on wood, she is doing really well. As I type these words she comes running out of her room crying....ahhh.  I think we are going to go down to once a month here on the blog, unless there is something going on that we would like to share. Hopefully it will be only good and positive information.
Thank you all again for your support during this journey. I can tell you from my point of view, that just feeling like someone is listening when you need to say something (or reading), is so therapeutic.  It helps you to feel like you are not alone, like others are on your journey and standing by your side. So thank you to the friends I know, and to the ones I have never met. Since Ella was diagnosed, this blog has been read almost 30,000 times. That's like 30,000 hugs and prayers. The gratitude in my heart is overflowing and words say quiet how I feel.
