I'm so glad things are looking up for you and Jim is "behaving". I hope you're also successful with your outings?
I can't believe Erica is going back to work already. How long is maternity leave in the USA? In Canada women have 17 weeks of maternity leave and then 35 weeks of parental leave, for a total of 1 year. The father can use some or all of the parental leave.
It's good to hear that Erica's wound vac is now gone. Enjoy Allie! They seem to grow up so fast these days!
