Happy 4th of July

It's hard to believe that it's already the 4th of July...where did June go? Seriously? As you can see, we're back together as a family celebrating our Independence TOGETHER! The kids and I where away from daddy for a total of 24 days. A trip that was to be no longer than a week to 10 days-went horribly wrong. We arrived back to Oregon late Thursday night and have taken a few days to decompress.

Before we left Washington my dad was released from Swedish hospital and was transferred to Cherry Hill Rehabilitation Center. We're grateful that he was excepted to this program, but where shocked to find out that he will only be there for 10 to 14 days. After which time, he will be released into the care of my mom once again. It is one thing to learn how to maneuver through life without a hip, it is entirely another to administer iv antibiotics three times a day without medical assistance for the next two months.

I look forward to returning to some normalcy in my own life between future visits to Washington in the months to come. Between all the medical issues, there continues to be allot of work to be done on fire clean up, rebuilding and property sales. This is indeed going to be a major life change for my parents.

Happy 4th from our family to yours!
