DAY 5 UPDATE:
I used to love October. It was the start of so many fun and exciting things. A time when I knew we’d start seeing family more often. That first changed when we lost Eric’s dad to cancer 7 years ago. A few years later, his grandma passed away. This last week of October is proving to be difficult for our family.

DAY 4 UPDATE:
Before we left last night, they got Shaylyn’s feeding tube in. The medical name for it has the word bowel in it, but the short of it is, it’s how she’ll get some form of nutrients in her body. Eric’s afraid she’ll come out of here looking like a skeleton.

DAY 3 UPDATE
These updates always turn into novels. I’m sorry. I’m a writer at heart and I want to remember everything I can.

DAY TWO UPDATE:
I apologize ahead of time for my lack of medical prowess and terminology. As soon as a Dr. starts speaking I get overwhelmed, especially if they speak too quickly.
