Went and got Elijah from school, who by now had two black eyes, a huge lump on his head and was having trouble seeing out of his left eye. So yes, Elijah has a concussion. After an hour and a half drs appt, James and I were ready to go...again...Oh but mother nature had her own thoughts. We awoke to a few inches of fresh snow, but up here what's a few inches? Well I live in a mountainous region, and the last two weeks the weather has been warming up, so new snow on top of warmed up snow= yes, you guessed it, AVALANCHE! No I am not kidding, we had an avalanche in the pass and now we are patiently waiting for the DOT to clear the road so we can actually begin the drive to Anchorage.
I'm not sure we will have internet access, but I'll keep you'll posted soon as I can!
What a morning you've had! Im so sorry Elijah has the concussion, was he able to come home? I know years ago my cousin fell and got a concusion and had to stay overnight just to be watched. Hope they clear the road soon so you can get on your way. Good luck with everything.

An avalanche??? Geez, and I was panicked driving along in what you would probably call a piddly amount of snow this morning.... Sure puts things in perspective (I'm a big fan of perspective).

Hope Elijah is doing better.

Hi Amber,
Was thinking of you today as I knew you were heading off, but sounds like you hit some road blocks! (hardy, har, I know --- but REALLY no pun intended!!) I sure hope Elijah is okay, and you guys get on your way soon.

Thinking of you,

Amber I am thinking of James tonight. I hope you all made it safely to Anchorage and that Elijah is doing well. I hope James surgery went well and he is doing good. Ty has a gtube in as well. I am wondering if James will have a long "peg" tube or the gtube button. I will be happy to pass along any tips that can help you and James adjust. Sending big hugs to you all!!

Okay, we're home...pain from the g-tube was a little more than we anticipated, I'm really hoping two weeks is enough time for him to be healed. I just got in and read all the posts, I'll respond a little more personal later. Thanks everyone for the well wishes

I LOVE perspective! You know how when you're in the hospital with YOUR sick kid, then you look over at another child, with a different situtation and you go, "Oh that poor family!" And you knoe the mom is looking at you thinking the same thing! That's my usual reminder of perspective.

OOOOO James loves him some girl attention! maybe the castle isn't so off the list?
I must be the meanest mom on the planet because my daughter was 7 and she walked and so did my great nephew who was 6....
Mine do a fair amount of walking, and they're all pretty sporty, but I know my 5 year old and she'll be hitching a ride in her brothers wheel chair is she walks more than a mile!

I'm starting to think you all are very funny people! By the time I got to the road block it was all clear, I was going to take some pictures for you guys but I'm glad it was, b/c we sailed through the pass.

TO YOU ALL: Thank you with all my heart for caring about my klutzy Elijah, and my sweetheart James. This is a very very cool group of people, and it makes me almost (almost) wish our trip was still a few months out so I had more time to get to know you all

Well James has a long tube, and DR said in about 2-3 months we will go back and have the Mic Key put in. How long was Ty in pretty bad pain after his tube was put in? James is still on narcotics every four hours. Do you think he'll be well enough for the trip in two weeks?
I may have questions for you, I'm pretty lost here.

Yeah pretty cool, 2 weeks...but it feels like forever still! I know DH and I had to learn all new coping skills when James got sick, and there are times I want to bash him upside the head. I'm sure he feels the same way. While James and I were at the hospital a mom got flowers from her hubby, while she was there with thier son. I got pissy with my DH b/c he should have thought of that!
