New Beginnings

It's been a really long time since my last post. Alot has happened since then. Ryan recently accepted a position as an assistant coach at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), in Richmond, Virginia. He left yesterday for 4 weeks. The 4th week, I'll drive up to visit and look for a place to live. Then he'll be home for another 4 weeks and then back to VA. I promised him I would do a better job at blogging since he would be away so much. I know it is so hard for him to be away from us, especially Ellie for so long.
This morning, when I went to get Ellie up, she had thrown up in her bed, and continued to throw up the rest of the morning. It was so sad and pitiful! I took her to the doctor around noon and he gave her a shot to help with the nausea. She seemed better this evening, but the only thing I could give her was pedialyte and crackers. She is in bed now and I am hoping and praying that she gets some good rest tonight and feels so much better tomorrow. What a helpless feeling it was to see her feeling so bad and not be able to do anything more than just hold her.
Hopefully tomorrow I will have better news to report. In the next few days I'll hopefully be posting that I've got our house up for sale. There are still some things I need to do to get the house just right. I may need to call in the reinforcements to get some extra hands (especially since Ellie's not quite herself).
Sorry, no pictures today. Maybe tomorrow :)
