Slightly Overwhelmed

I'm still taking it day by day with our journey with new nurses. Most of my mornings have been filled with phone calls back and forth between 2 agencies and getting our new nurse trained. If I haven't signed blogs, returned emails or phone calls I apologize. I haven't gone to my church group or other activities because I'm just trying to get through the week.

We did find a nice nurse who's working Monday and Tuesday mornings and she's learning Isaac's routine and cares.
Isaac is adjusting well to her and is being his sweet, social self as usual. He has certainly charmed this new lady with his personality and cuteness. We're still looking for a nurse for Wed-Friday mornings and the agency is trying to come up with some ideas so keep praying!

Yesterday we took Isaac to an eye appointment and his eyesight hasn't change since last year, even though he is very nearsighted. Isaac can only see 3 to 4 feet away without his glasses. He didn't like it when the doctor put drops in his eyes and held a lens next to him. Poor guy, he doesn't like doctors coming toward him with anything period!

A blog post wouldn't be complete without photos of Isaac playing with the ipad.....

This is really cool!

I can see the head gears turning in your little, sweet head when you are playing with Mama's iPad. You seem to be learning a lot with it. Go for it little man!!

Love, Gammy

Colleen, thank you for commenting on Annabel's blog. I am so glad that I was led to your site. Isaac is precious and looks like such a smart boy. I enjoy looking at your pictures also. I was wondering in all your spare time (ha ha!) if you could write down some of the site you go to on the ipad. Annabel also likes anything musical. I have one that my family gave me for Christmas but I don't use it that much. You are the 2nd mom that says they use if for their special needs child. I will continue to come to your site and add Isaac to our prayers list. I will also pray for the nursing situation.
