lack of updates

I haven't been writing much on account of life beating us down...
-both kids are sick. Monday I took the day off work to take Edith to the pediatrician (croup and an ear infection). That night, I was in the ER with Elden due to a cough so bad he was puking. They gave him steroids to help with his asthma.
-the new house has at least $5500 worth of mold remediation that needs done. We don't know if the sellers will do it (waiting on air samples to see what type/concentration of mold before we ask them to fix it) which means we may end up backing out. Which, based on yesterday's development, may not be the worst thing in the world because...
-Jon has a hernia and needs surgery August 12. He shouldn't lift more than a milk jug for four weeks after which means I will a) need to schedule the time off work and b) it will be primarily unpaid. I know our parents may be able to take some time off to help and I may try to find a Mother's Helper as well because with the surgery expense (and possibly moving expenses--since he can't lift much we will have to hire movers) I don't think we can afford me to not work for more than even a week. 

Suffice to say, there is a lot up in the air right now. I have been on the brink of a nervous breakdown for about a week, but last night was the first night both kids weren't coughing the whole evening so I feel a little more like I can breathe today. Please just pray Jon's hernia doesn't get worse because if it gets pinched off that would mean emergency surgery which would really throw a wrench in things...
