Steroids are rough!  Will didn't get much sleep for the week and the steroids caused some side effects that weren't fun.  Thankfully the side effects are wearing off and he was feeling well enough to go out to dinner and make silly faces when he got tired of me taking pictures of him.  It's amazing how much of a difference proper nutrition and getting actual calories makes.  

I had a migraine free week which was really nice and I've been feeling a bit more organized.  We are finally getting the school room setup.  We had started turning a guest room into a school room right before he was diagnosed but of course that took a major backseat.  But now that he's feeling better we are getting back focused on home schooling.  

Have a great week and happy reading!

    I think that Sherry Thomas series looks fun.

  2. Looking at all your books from the used bookstore makes me wonder if there are any still near me. I must go exploring and see. Good to hear you had a migraine free week. May it last.

  3. Glad Will was able to enjoy getting out a bit and that you had a migraine-free steps turn to milestones. Hope this is a good week.
