Day 5

So, we have made it to day 5. It is Saturday afternoon and we are just rejuvenating at home. Cooper is hanging out at a friends house - Thank you Becky E.! Max is learning to crawl - very cute. He is moving forward in a sort of lean and lunge mode right now. But if he wants to get somewhere, he gets there! I am doing my best Michael Keaten impression as Mr. Mom and cleaning and doing laundry. Sam is resting as she should be. The past few days have been pretty rough for Sam. She has been basically laying down either on the couch or in bed since Thursday morning. She is a trooper and I think she is handling everything very well! I think one of the hardest things for her is not being able to help with anything. But, we are approaching the one week mark and things are supposed to start heading in the right direction at the one week mark - so we are crossing our fingers. We appreciate the love and support we have received from everyone. It is amazing the messages we have received from our friends and family across the country. It is very helpful to hear from all of you and honestly does lift our spirits! So thank you and even if we don't have the energy or time to respond to everyone, I hope you all know we are sending our love and appreciation for your support back at ya! We are so fortunate to have such a support system coming from all directions. I am not sure how we would manage without all of you - so thank you!!


  1. You are a such a great husband Tad! Please hug Sam for me. And hugs and love to you both. Xoxo christine

  2. My prayers are with all of you, I know how strong Sam is and you are doing a wonderful job! God Bless.
    Love, Dana

  3. Tad, Sam, Cooper and Max, We are all praying for you guys. I know this is a hard time for not only Sam, but also for Tad and the boys. You all have such a good attitude and I know that God will help you through this. He never gives you more than you can handle. Thanks Tad for having the courage to start this blog so we can keep up with what is going on. We will be praying for you every step of the way!

    We love you. Sangie, Jerry, Cortney and Nicole
