Thanks for all of your nice comments, emails and phone calls---and dinners from equally rant-worthy folks. How blessed I am and how much God has already (and continues to) provide for me.
We are coping with an additional pneumonia diagnosis courtesy of the chest x-ray. We have both of our specialist appointments scheduled over the next two weeks. And we'll be making a return trip for bloodwork on Monday. Even the stool sampling is coming along nicely. (How could I not keep you all fully informed? ;-))
I do have a deadline later today, but perhaps I'll be able to sneak back on and share some of the more humorous and touching adjustment stories later today.
