Update #1

Alright's been a crazy few weeks!!
We have a lot to fill you in on so I'll have to
do it in a few posts.  

As soon as I was released from the hospital,
we had lined up to stay at the Bend Ronald McDonald
house, which for those of you who don't know, is an
amazing resource!  It's set up for families who live out
of town and have children at the hospital.  Because
we had 2 girls in the NICU, we would have been driving
30 miles each way several times a day.  
Well, the Ronald McDonald house was going to be 
full for a few days, so in the meantime, we got to stay
at an even cooler place!!

Yes, that is correct! We got to stay in an apartment at 
a retirement community and we were the only people
under the age of 75!! It was great!!!

Here's Jim in our room, loving life!

We had our own personal balcony!

They had set mealtimes, 8:00 breakfast, 12:00 lunch
and 5:00 dinner.  We loved eating with the old folks!
And they loved us!!!

They had a chef prepare meals to order!

And they had a pool table, so Jim wasn't too upset
about living in a retirement home.

We stayed for 4 or 5 days and then moved on.
We were very thankful for the place to stay
and for the cute old people we got to meet!
