In Missouri Again

I know it has been way too long since I last wrote a blog post.    I had just planned on taking some time off week before last so Elliott and I could spend some time together doing whatever he wanted before he headed back to school last week.  We were able to do that, and really had a lot of fun.

But now we are in Missouri, and Elliott still hasn't started second grade.  My dad is really sick and is in the ICU.  My mom took him to the hospital last Monday and the life flighted him to a bigger one.  Tuesday the nurses said we needed to come home.  He has a lot of different health issues, and right now they are just kind of building on each other.  But we still have hope.  He is off his sedation, and understands what is going on around him.  He is able to nod and shake his head.

Everyone at Elliott's school is super understanding.  Darla talked to his teacher before we left on Tuesday, and I talked to his superintendent on Thursday, and both were sympathetic and understanding about the school he is missing.  It's been pretty hard on Elliott, though, since he can't go back and see his Grumpy.  The waiting room is pretty boring, but he's been a real champ.
