Bitter sweet~


On June 21 Dylon left for patrol, he will be out to sea for 2 months, this is hard because during this time we really don't get to talk, I never realized how much I have come to get peace at just hearing his voice. Today we got an e-mail from Dylon letting us know how he has been and telling us he saw and read about Adam's bike accident. I cried as soon as I saw his e-mail, it has been 7 long months since I have seen him and I miss him so much!!! I also felt a little guilty that I have really been negelcting my blog and this computer!!! I didn't realize that they would have internet access at times and I am going to try to be more diligent with this, if for no other reason than a way to send a piece of "home" to Dylon.

Adam had a rough day, he slept for almost 15 hours!!! He fell asleep by 7pm and woke up at 9:50am!!!!! Eating is still not that easy, and I think he is getting sick of ice cream (who knew that was possible) tonight he had mashed potatoes and gravy but wouldn't eat it until it was room temp. (ewww) . Lots of tears on and off, like mommy when I read him Dylon's email he cried, he misses his big brother!! They told us the mouth heals so fast, obviously we must be very impatient because it isn't healing fast enough for us!!!! Adam called his swim coach tonight to tell him what happened and his coach is going to stop over tomorrow, Adam is so excited to have his coach come to his house!!!!!!!! I think that will be great medicine for Adam!!! Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes!!!!

It's already looking better. Hang in there! My Nicolas was camping for 2 weeks and I was already missing him. I can't imagine having my son away so long as Dylon. I hope you'll be able to communicate with him more often.

Angela wants to know if she can bring Adam a chocolate shake at lunch time today.

So cool that Dylon is able to read your blog. Beats waiting for a letter!

Looks like the lip is looking better already. I didn't think it was possible to be tired of ice cream either!
