Getting Back to "Normal"

Hello everyone! Lots has happened this past week toward getting back to a normal life. Bailey started school last Thursday and all is going very well. She missed a couple days this week, though, because of a sore throat and really stuffy nose - no fever - but it was enough to see her pediatrician. He found no infection and no strep, so she went back to school today. Josie's doing well in school and has basketball tryouts tonight. Marissa's doing great in kindergarten. She loves it! They keep learning little jingles about all the different colors - they're studying a new color every week. And she walks around the house and the neighborhood singing her little color jingles . . . at the top of her lungs! And, I started back to work this week. That was a strange feeling. I felt really nervous to leave home (especially with Bailey there sick that particular day) and nervous to come back to work. I was afraid I had forgotten everything I learned over the past 20 years. Lots of things have changed and the things that haven't changed I've pretty much forgotten. But it's coming back quickly - thank goodness (for both me and my boss!).

I'm sure you're sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear about the concert . . . well, IT WAS INCREDIBLE!!! We had such a fun time. We got to meet Keith Urban and talk to him. He got down on his knees to talk to Marissa. She wouldn't look at him, but she did talk to him. We got our picture taken with him too. He remembered sending Bailey an autographed picture from Australia while she was in the hospital. When I told him that this was her, he said "Oh! That Bailey! I'm so glad you're out of the hospital and doing great! And I bet Mom is too." He was such a nice guy. We had the best time and will not soon forget the evening.

I'd better clock in and get to work now.
Life is good!

Love to all,

Hi Angie! I'm so glad the girls are doing well and back in school - especially Bailey! You all made it through a difficult year and now you're back to normal! I'm sure you'll pick everything up again at R&L - they all must be so glad to see you! I'm waiting to see the pictures of you all and KU. You should be very proud of your 3 girls!!!!

Hey! I seen Bailey on Fox yesterday it is the first time in weeks that I have been home to relax. I was reading a book with the TV on and I heard them talking about a little girl who had been there for 150 days +/- and she is home know. She looked so good and God has answered prayers for her to recover. I miss checking this everyday, it was the first thing I done every morning. I am glad your life is getting back to normal and we are all adapting not hearing about the girls everyday. It is amazing how Riley Kids touch everyones hearts. You, Bailey, are the reason that I donated to Riley, and will continue to help anyway I can.

I love WFMS for what they do for the community and also love contry music. Bailey, you got to do something amazing by meeting him, and for him to remember just shows how you touch peoples hearts.

Well, my daughter is ill right now so I need to check on her. She has been on the edge of going to Riley a couple times now, atleast if it happens I know how excellent it is and we know the staff. Thanks you guys for sharing your life with us.

Hope all is well with school and work. We saw Dr. Turrentine on Aug 10 and we don't have to go back until Feb!! He said you had left him to go on vacation and that he missed you guys, but was glad you were home.
Always in our thoughts and prayers!
