I think there should be a law that says any child with a fixator should be exempt from all other illnesses!!  Yesterday morning Gracie woke up at 2:15 am throwing up.  She continued until around 5 am.  Now usually when you have this issue you get up and run to the bathroom right?  Well not for poor Gracie.  She is not very quick these days unfortunately, so her dad and I were the trash can cleaners...YUCK!  It was so sad to see her try and situate herself in her bed to "take care of business".  She ended up missing therapy and school so she could lay around and feel icky :(

On a good note, I had a meeting at her school today to discuss her progress.  Happy to report she is already caught up and on track with the rest of the students in her class.  She is coping well and manages to stay all day even after going to therapy at 8am every morning.

We are trying to adjust to the fixator life combined with "regular life".  Paul and Tanner have been a huge help.  I don't know what I would do without him.  We have great friends and family that are offering help wherever we may need them.  We are truely blessed!

Now I just have to figure out where to put all of the stuff we accumulated in Florida.  I think Gracie managed to aquire a whole new wardrobe.  My house looks like a tornado went throught it and I hope to restore it eventually to its normal lived in look.
