Sorry I've been away so long. Shaun's mama's been ailing, and had surgery today. She's recovering, and we're hoping for good news in the days to come, but we've been very much preoccupied.
2010 has been a long year.
Shaun continues to do well, though, with his heart failure (that's a weird sentence, isn't it?). He's lost 40 lbs since June 9, and continues to be relatively free of symptoms like shortness of breath. He's walking 3-4 miles a week, and I'm so impressed by the number of changes he's made successfully. It's inspiring, and I'm so proud of him.
V starts school this week (she's missing today and tomorrow so we can be with Grandma Mary and the family), and is totally excited, and you should expect lovely back-to-school photos soon, with a brand-new backpack and everything.
I will be back as soon as I can, while I figure out how to juggle work and family and blogness all over again. Thanks for your patience, gentle readers.
