Well we finally moved last weekend. It so fun being in our own house for the first time ever. Carol and I have been married for 12 years, and moved almost the same number of times. We finally are throwing away all the cardboard we have saved for over a decade!! Thanks for all of our families and friends help. I don't have any pictures yet, but I will post when I can. Also, thanks for all the support. It has been really cool seeing our hometown, and the world remotivate us.

On Carol news, Carol has changed prosthetists to one closer to our hometown. A few of my patients, are patients of his (Greg Davidson), and have been telling us about him for quite awhile. Carol was very nervous about cutting ties up in Seattle, but she is super excited about the change, plus it is way closer for us. She has a plastic surgery consult with the surgeon at harborview today. He is the doctor who did most of her initial skin graft's/surgeries at harborview. Carol is wanting to look into the possibility of cosmetic stuff that could be done to help make her scarring look better. I am sort of thinking she may have to look elsewhere, as harborview is more of a trauma center. But I guess we will see.

Things are going pretty good with the girls. They are sharing a room for the first time, so that has been an interesting change this week. Let's just say I don't need my alarm clock anymore. They are up at 5:30-6 screaming and playing in their room. Funny, but not at the same time!!

Well it has been some time so I think I should catch everyone up on what has been going on with us. I have tried to leave a couple posts in the last couple month (lengthy ones) that have gotten erased somehow. It's unmotivating to do it again for some reason. Here's hoping I have better luck here. So first Carol: She is doing well. The main reason for the slowdown in updates, is generally because of the slowdown in progress. I mean that in a good way actually. mainly I think what Carol is doing lately is becoming much more independent. She rarely uses her wheelchair nowadays. She is getting a new leg today actually, I can't remember which one. We haven't had the last surgery on her right leg, mostly becuase Carol's extended family has been having alot of health issues themselves, and Carol didn't want to be in the hospital at the same time. Carol's mom had a heart surgery and a couple of her aunts have cancer, and her stepmom had cancer as well. So crazy couple years for her family to say the least. What else......we have been very busy with work, and getting our house ready to move into, which is moving very very slowly. We are moving into it next month even though it is not technically ready.

At the beginning of the year Chloe started a ballet class here in town. They had a recital in March I think. I tried to attach the video, unsuccessfully. She did great, but was hilarious. Chloe is 3 now, and Safiya will turn 2 in June. That will be the 2 year reunion of Carol getting sick. Safiya talks very well for her age, saying lots of please and to much "no thank you's" if you ask me:)

I am doing good too!! Gotta run

Thanks for all the support
