Sleep. There hasn't been much of it around here for a while. That is due mostly to Evangeline's come-and-go illness over these past weeks and her ear-piercing screams (no matter whether simply protesting something or having an appendage removed). There's also just pure exhaustion on my part lately. On top of sleep deprivation, we have had an incredibly busy month, which has included Eliana's sleepless sleep study a couple of weeks ago and my physical therapy appointments (on the far side of town) twice a week. My mother is visiting and is now better able to understand what it means when I answer her question, "So, what have you been up to today?" with, "Holding Evangeline."
With a prayer that I won't jinx myself, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I think we may have turned the corner. I just wanted to apologize for my complete lack of posting this month (I didn't have enough time or brain cells to write anything sensible) and for the zombie-like state in which many of you may have recently encountered me. I hope to rejoin the human race as a normally functioning person soon.
