Two months from today we will be in Ohio, ready to meet the newest member our our family, Evan's service dog. We don't know the name or even if it's a male or a female, but none of that matters. What does matter is that Evan's dog will change our lives. Some things will be harder, but many things will be so much better. Evan is having seizures in his sleep and that means he sleeps in our bed. Since he goes to sleep earlier than Rob and I, we check in on him obsessively before we go to bed. Going to bed and going to sleep don't really mean the same thing in our house. Rob and I sleep, but not well. My mind is open to the new experiences of having a service dog and I know it ill help us in ways we aren't even aware of yet. Let the countdown begin!
