We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

Thanks for the Help

Dad update

This will be quick. But I wanted everyone to know that he's still in a drug induced coma. He's had a second surgery to be sure they've remove all of the bacteria which is now suspected to be a staph infection rather than necrotizing fascitis. So he won't lose his arm. He won't lose muscle. He's only just lost about a 14"x4" section of skin. Which is HUGE on one's arm, but better than the alternatives. He's still being intubated and on a ventilator. Since he's been on it for such a long time, it sounds like fluid has collected in around his lungs and they've added another tube to remove the fluid. I could be explaining that wrong. My dad still has no idea what is going on. We're all just so glad he is improving.

I feel so touched by everyone's love and concern for our family. My dad is a dentist and has obviously not been in the office all week. Some of the men in my parent's ward are dentists and have taken shifts at my dad's office. His practice has been able to remain open without a hiccup.

My heart has been touched by so many good and kind people. If there is anything to learn from this, it is the power of love that people are capable of.
