I am hoping to change this blog around a bit in the next month. I want to do two things - to fill everyone in on our current happenings, and to share my thoughts on what grief is like on the inside. I hope to ask for your input, and am looking forward to your responses already! Now I just need to get this site going better!
Most importantly, I need to add two things to this post. 1) Peyton is doing very well! I am thrilled to be able to say this and yet am reluctant to put it into writing! We are hopeful he will continue to heal so well.
2) We are planning a fundraiser to show Drew how much we love him, and to try to make a difference for the kids and the families that have yet to go through this. We feel very deeply about this and will be working towards making a difference any way we can. My sister-in-law, Nicola, and a dear friend, Aisling, are the main coordinators, with Jordan and I playing a back-seat role. You can find out more at A Day For Drew (www.adayfordrew.com). I will be adding more to this blog on that note in the future as well.
Please bear with me as I seek to turn this blog into something sustainable and hopefully interesting/helpful to those who visit. Thank you again for visiting us!
(I have promised an update on our genetic situation and Peyton's results, but am waiting for a meeting with the genetics specialist to post more. Well, sort of. That's sort of an excuse, but I am getting closer to being able to post this - it takes a lot of emotional energy and I need to dose it right now. I haven't forgotten!)
