i don't have much time to make this post....i'm a little "OCD"....must post, must post, committed to posting everyday for Ds awareness month! haha! so today ended up looking nothing like i thought it would! as i was getting ready to take forrest to the dr this morning, the phone rang and it was hope haven, the Down syndrome clinic in jacksonville. they had a cancellation for TOMORROW! so after a brief phone consult with tim, we accepted the appointment. after forrest's appointment, i sent him home with my mom and flew through the house packing for jacksonville!
amidst the chaos of packing, there was a "flurry" of texts between myself and my facebook friend karen prewitt (mom to caleb, 3 1/2) who had graciously offered her home to us several weeks ago! little did she know that i would take her up on the offer with about 8 hours notice! wyatt and i were on the road by 1:30 pm....he was awake until about 3 pm and then slept until about 5:45~a terrific traveller!
here i sit in karen's house blogging.....never would have happened with wyatt's diagnosis! we never would have met...now i consider her another dear friend. we've met in person a couple of times at conferences this past summer, but had not spent time together like this! we had a blast tonight! her hubby david played and rolled in the floor with our boys....it was so fun! the boys were so cute together! wish i had my camera cord to post pics here.....oh well!
again, i am so blessed. God has broadened my perspective and "enlarged my territory....." with a little extra chromosome that i never suspected would change my life in so many terrific ways! off to complete the paperwork for hope haven.....
