R&R for the Fight of a Lifetime

I'm going to be taking a little break from life, blogging and work soon aka vacation!. I haven't posted much lately because I'm not sure what I really want to talk about or say. Muddled emotions and thoughts on so much that I'm not sure how to put into words.

I can't decide if I'm just anxious about leaving Will, but something feels funky about his walking. I think it's probably the leg braces which we still don't have new ones. We go tomorrow morning for an appointment (finally) so I'm hoping that will be a positive and fast moving next step.

I am tired. It seems like every day brings more challenges. Even with the reduced work schedule (which has been a HUGE help) I just feel like in some ways it adds more to the plate. I have more time to worry about Will. I've decided he's not color blind. He sat there and matched about 15 different colors this morning at school. He just needs to focus more and could care less when someone randomly asks him about a color.

I'm ready for a break and am praying that Will can just keep himself out of trouble (aka the hospital) for a few days while we're lounging.

Insert Rocky theme song here... Neil and I are resting our brains, bodies and hearts gearing up for the fight of a lifetime. The fight that never seems to end.


  1. You guys deserve some much needed rest and relaxation...although I am jealous still:) Have a great time and toss back a rita for your homegirls.

  2. Enjoy your vacation, Lori!

  3. Lori, biggest hugs and I hope you can truly relax and enjoy your vacation. So hard sometimes to turn the old brain off and really let the thoughts go for a bit. You are such great parents and its OK to take time for yourself sometimes too. Enjoy!

  4. You're in my thoughts all the time my friend. Have a wonderful trip I hope you can enjoy some r&r. We're long overde for a lunch. I'll touch base with you when you're back and see if we can get something on the calendar.

  5. You are such a great example being so strong! Hang in there - there are lots of us thinking about you and praying for you everyday!

  6. I hope you get an amazing, relaxing vacation and come back feeling re-energized!! Enjoy yourself!!!!!
