Unfortunately, immediately following my fantastic news, Firehubby's ear problem escalated into a MAJOR problem. He has had a severe insult to his ears from prolonged use of an elecric tool while maintaining wood fire ladders.
He has a condition called Hyperacusis. This is a very complicated condition that he is posting a detailed explanation about today(click here). The bottom line, it has caused some major suffering. He is being seen by a specialist and we are hopeful that it will become more bearable.
Brian is a wonderful husband and it has broken my heart to see him suffer as he has.
The kids are NEEDY too! But in a good way.
We have been seeing to it that the end of their summer has been full of fun and activity.
The Princess has been taking swim lessons at the local university. She is becoming quite a swimmer!
