Troy's mom came out to visit and was incredibly helpful when I came down with strep for the third time this winter. I think it's safe to say that the stress of the move and spending every waking moment putting the house in order combined with four young children and a baby who wakes up multiple times a night hasn't helped my immune system much. I don't know what I would have done without her while I was stuck in bed with a fever for a few days.
