I am so thankful to report to you that Danielle’s trip to Florida went wonderfully well. She got home yesterday from a week’s stay in Panama City. She had no adversity with her seizures that we are aware of. That is the best news to me about the whole thing.
She did, however, have some homesickness. Not being away from us any length of time in her life made it a little tough on her somewhere around Wednesday night. From then on, she was calling home a lot. But that’s not a big deal at all. We were glad for her to call. In fact, it made us feel pretty good.
I hear stories all of the time of parents who are glad to “get rid” of the kids for a week. I know of a situation right now and you probably do too of some kids who are ready to leave home at any time because of the poor home-life they live.
We are not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. We have our family issues like everyone else (with the exception of Greg and Randy:)). But I’m so thankful for my children. Ellen and I love to spend time with them and watch them grow up. When they hurt, we hurt and when they laugh, it makes our day.
Anyway, I’m really glad Danielle had a good week, and I’m really really glad she is home safe with us. Thanks for all of your prayers and concerns.
