I can see it - there - at the (hopefully) end of this tunnel. Another 24 hours I think.

This has been a nightmare. Literally. From two different doctors, not really caring about getting paperwork filled out, finding out (at 3:30 pm today) that Braeden's Dr., whom we switched to a year ago never received the files from his last Dr, but of course didn't bother telling me, even though he's been there for his 3 year check up, driving to his old Dr, who after 20 min of searching decided his file must have been moved out to the hospital to be put in storage and they weren't sure how many days it would take to request the storage key, get the storage key, get to the storage room, find the file, all to get his immunization record. Luckily he is a (former now) foster child because Healthworks keeps a record of all foster children's med records and has it, so I will get it tomorrow. Little One's Dr's office didn't bother getting his form filled out until this afternoon, oh and by the way, the Dr was gone by then, so it's all filled out but he hasn't had a chance to sign it yet. Sorry. He's supposed to sign first thing tomorrow and they are then supposed to fax it to the day care. I think we are finally ready to start them all tomorrow. I will be sooooo glad when their forms and all are in and they are there. Done. Let's hope by tomorrow night.

I still felt great the rest of the day on Friday and continue to. Luckily none of the others seem to be sick or getting sick. Braeden's diarrhea lasted until yesterday. We instituted the whole rice, banana, applesauce diet Sat and Sun. I finally felt like a normal eater yesterday.

The light is there, it's so close. Now, only to win the lottery. But I guess I'll need to start buying tickets to do that!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
