First full week of summer vacation! I have to say it has been so nice to not have to do all the school stuff. The kids have been playing outside, staying up late and sleeping in later in the morning.

Jacob has been doing very well joint wise. His knee looks great! He is outside riding his big wheel and running around like a kid again. If you watch him when he bends down to color with chalk or something else he still will not put that knee down though. I am not sure if it is phychological. He seems like he is going into a "medicated remission". It is amazing what a group of drugs can do to a very swollen knee. He would not be considered in a remission though, until his eyes show no inflammation. Either way I am just happy to see him acting "normal" again.

I just wanted to mention that my cousin Ed passed away this week at 33 years old. Eddie fought a brave 2 1/2 years battle with cancer. I am asking anyone who reads this blog to say a quick prayer for him, his fiancee Jessica and his Mom and Dad. He was an only child who was a treasure to his parents. Thank you.

I am sorry for your loss of Eddie. That's way too young & its obvious he touched your life in a big way in those short 30+ years! I crossed the finish line today of the Lance Armstrong LIVESTRONG 5K & then read your news & said a prayer. Keeping you in my thoughts!
