Another great week so far. I went back to work for a full tour last week. Work is a bit of an escape but it brings some mixed emotions. I hate leaving Kris to handle all the logistics by herself like being with G when the nurses come to draw her blood. She really is not a big fan of it and it takes quite a bit of convincing to make it happen. It is also tough leaving the girls, I spend a lot of time watching my phone, worrying, of course.

G has been enjoying the sunshine and her friends. Our first big sunny day, we overdid it a bit and I think she suffered a little that night because of it. She kept waking up saying that her bones hurt. Needless to say, we have throttled her back since then. Gabriella is a big movie fan so it does not take too much to get her to come in and hang out. It is pretty much against every thing I am about to pull my kid away from playing outside with her friends on a beautiful sunny day and sit her in front of the TV. Damn. This is going to be a long summer.

G has been getting pretty cold lately since her hair fell out. A couple days ago, G and I got up in the morning and it was cold in the house. I started the fireplace and she crawled up on the hearth and curled up under a blanket. Her sister crawled up with her, it was quite a Kodak moment. Luckily I had a camera handy.

Gabriella goes back to the hospital Wednesday for her overnight. We go to El Camino Hospital instead of Packard. They say that it is a pretty mellow place and a bit easier to deal with, especially since Packard has a bunch of construction going on. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks again to everyone for the incredible support, meals, donations etc. We couldn't do it without you.


  1. I bet its so hard to be away from your family Adam. But, you know Kristin is the best mama ever and can handle it.... Just shower her with kisses and rub her shoulders upon your return home. You both continue to amaze me.

    G and B looks so cute by the fire, wish I was there cuddling up next to them.

  2. You have the cutest little girls! Your family continues to amaze me!
