david update…

so i pulled the boys out of school,

steve and i packed up all our bags

we had a hotel reservation (non-refundable)

and while in route to ucla, we got a call that the appointment was cancelled.

the doctor came down with a cold/flu. i was so frustrated!

ugh, i’ve been stressing out about this

and trying to be brave

and now we have to wait until monday to meet the surgeon.

sooooo, since we already had the boys out of school

and had a hotel reservation in southern california,

we decided to hit disneyland for a little family fun.


thank you for all your sweet words and prayers.

i so appreciate you. seriously!
