Sorry for the lack of update yesterday, there wasn't really much to update! Brinley is still feeling sick, unfortunately, but I did get a few more smiles than usual, so hopefully that is a sign that she will start feeling better soon. She is also still eating us out of house and home. She discovered a love for boiled eggs and has gone through about 18 eggs in 2 days. So we are hoping that being off the steroids is going to slow her down soon. It is hard to keep up with her cravings!

Please pray that Brinley will start sleeping soon. We have been praying for it for some time now, but we figure maybe more prayers will help! She is still up all night and it is getting so difficult to function for both David and I, not to mention how tired and grouchy Brinley is during the day. We are struggling to stay awake to take care of everyone's needs, and David has to stay awake at work too! We feel like if we could just get a good night's sleep, it would make this challenge a little more bearable. Taylor has had to get herself off to school for a couple weeks now, making her own lunch and waking us up to sign papers, and seeing herself out the door. It is so sad to me, but we are just so tired. Sleep is so important!!!! It sounds like something so simple, but it can make such a big difference. We appreciate your prayers! They really do help!

David's sister Sole is here for a few days from Las Vegas to help out. I am so happy to have her here. I can't believe how much help we have needed, it's amazing how many people have jumped in to help us. I don't know what we would do without it.

You are all an inspiration to us! I could barely get through reading the blog the first time I read it, but you amaze me everyday. You are in our prayers, thoughts and we know the gospel is what pulls you through. I want to do something to help...please let me know if you are in need of anything. We might be in Vegas but we are here when you need us. Love, the Hermansens (Bracken, Chad and kids).
