We are so happy to be back home. 16 sleeps was just too long to be away from the other kids. Since being home we have dealt with: Caelyn with shingles (her outbreak started before we left China), Claire had a foot injury and ended up in a boot, Claire ran a fever and got the respiratory crud, and Caleb got the chicken pox. Plus throw in 2 Christmas band concerts for Brianna and Hunter! Gary's dad, Myron, has been in and out of the hospital as well. He battled esophogeal cancer and had surgery this summer. Well, his new esophogus has strictures and swallowing is very difficult. He has lost 20 pounds which he didn't have to lose. He is currently in the hospital waiting to get a g tube so he can get nutrition. Please pray for Myron and the family as we care for him especially Wayne and Teresa. Whew, this momma is tired! Praying for a healthy 2013!
Here are a few pictures to catch you up!
