Life With Mommy

So we successfully got Kara home over the weekend. Packing and moving spilled over into Sunday, but by Sunday afternoon we were unloading the pickup here at home.

It's been good having her here. She spends most of her time cooking, eating, and doing the dishes. I'm amazed at the sheer volume of food that she is eating, although it is mostly meat and vegetables at the moment. She has a few carbs that she can eat, and is looking to add more.

Having Kara home is an adjustment for everyone, and I have seized on this opportunity to try and add a little more structure and routine to the girl's schedule - taking special care to include time for doing chores, while emphasizing the opportunity to do fun things. Last night we went to the park as a family, and it was a lot of fun.

Kara is still gaining weight. I thought I was losing, but that's not going nearly as fast as I had hoped. But I've stuck to my diet for a week now, which means something is going right.

That is wondeful news for your family. I hope she continues to do well.

What a great update. I just read all your back posts about Kara's situation. Wow. I don't even want to try to imagine what you've all been through. Here's hoping the end of the trial is near.

This just makes my heart so warm!

I've been praying this day would happen for your family--SOON.
