Feeling a bit out of sorts lately

I’ve been feeling a bit disconnected lately and it’s got me in kind of a weird headspace. The kids have been sick for a week, which is stressful enough because they’ve missed a lot of school as a result. As I’m writing this, I can hear them both coughing in the living room and they’re …

I feel grateful for all I have

The kids went to school without any problems. That’s always a good thing. I’m not a huge fan of having to make multiple trips but it is what it is. I had to drop Emmett off a bit early because Gavin had a follow-up with neurology at the Cleveland Clinic. Thankfully, this was a telehealth …

Surgery went well and I humbly thank my friends at the @ClevelandClinic

I really appreciate all the concern. It took a bit longer to get this out than I had originally planned because I’m moving a little slower than I thought I would be, but I wanted to let you all know how I’m doing. I’m in between meetings at the moment so I will make this …
