Holy long time Batman

Let me explain the reasons for my absence.
First and foremost Paul's dad died. His dad was heartbroken after his mom died and he was at Paul's uncles house, and had a heart attack. We have been back and forth between Pauls uncles house in Montreal and our house in Toronto. Paul has really taken a huge blow over this and today was the first day I was able to get him out of bed and to work. His boss has been amazing. I called him about a week and a half ago, because I was worried about him possibly losing his job because he has taken so much time off. I know that he can't be fired because of the berevement leave, but I was worried about the time off that he took with Elliot and the pregnancy and with his mom. His boss told me that everyone has a bad year every once and a while. We all need a little consideration when this happens. He said that Paul is a valuable asset to the team who up until this year really hadn't taken much time off, and this time off was due to him.
Then we had a scare with me. I was nursing Elliot one night by myself, Paul was in Montreal, and I started to get very dizzy. I called my neighbour and she came over right away. (Poor girl was in her jammies and had just come off a 12 hour surgery shift) and she took me to the hospital. I called my older brother because I didnt feel safe going home alone. So after being released (just not eating enough to make up for the calories I'm burning by breastfeeding) Elliot and I hunkered down at Casa My House (the name by older brother gave his house) and were fine.
Other then that we have been just great. We got a new patio set and have been enjoying the backyard as much as possible. We have been busy planning for Christmas holidays. I have two brothers, only one of which still lives at home, and Paul has a sister that he doesn't really speak to.
