So Nate and I were talking...we might switch places for a couple of days. Nate would end up coming up here to be with Ava and I would go home. I think I just need a break or something. It just depends on how Nate's court dates work out (he's a police officer for those who don't know...not a criminal : ) ). Since he missed all of last months he is having to make them up now. I think going home for a couple of days would do me some good, at least that is what I think now.

Today, Kaden got an "ouchie" at school. Somehow or other he fell and I don't know if he hit his head or just landed on his side but either way I am sure it hurt. It makes me feel even worse that I wasn't there. I know that I would not have been at school to comfort him either, it just feels weird not to be there to pick him up from school and give him hugs.

Amy,

Our prayers continue to be with you all. We know how the time drags occasionally. Getting home and to your familiar surroundings would be a good, timely and rejuvinating experience now. Remember how it was with Kaden and how distant a memory the stay has become over the last couple of years, it will be the same with Ava once you all are able to go home and spend time as a family. Also, remember to trust your motherly instinct as others have reminded you. YOU AND NATE KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR AVA AND ARE THE NATURAL CAREGIVER. If you see something wrong, know that you have every right as a mother to say something. You are only making that nurse, Dr., or other person involved in Ava's care a better provider which is, or should be, their ulitmate goal. Pick up the phone and call Andi if you need someone to talk with, you know that we are always here for you and your family.

Love The Rices
