Where Does the Time Go?

I have thought about coming here and posting about how things have been going, but it doesn't seem like there has been a lot of time. In fact, obviously, there hasn't been any time at all, since I haven't posted here since August before school started!

Caleb has been doing really well in First Grade. In fact, in the last couple of weeks, I've received comments from both the Principal and Assistant Principal at his school about how well he is doing.

Cassidy, on the other hand, has not been doing real well. The first couple weeks of school were really rough. She has finally settled in, but still isn't really wanting to do the school work.

Unfortunately, this week has been very rough with Cassidy. We were at our mental health crisis center a week and a half ago. Then Tuesday we ended up in the emergency room and had to to have her admitted to the hospital. We went and visited her today. The doctor changed her medicine yesterday, but it appears she's having a side effect to the medication as she got sick twice tonight. The doctor wanted the nurse to hold off on that medication tonight and see how she does tomorrow and then we'll go from there. He had originally said that he thought she could come home Monday or Tuesday, but I'm not sure if this is going to set that back or not. I guess we'll know more tomorrow.

We'll go back up on Saturday, as the hospital that Cassidy is in is 2.5 hours away from us.

I'm exhausted so I'm going to get this posted and hopefully I'll be able to post more this weekend!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
