I am pretty embarrassed, and very relieved. My worries were for naught. Not hearing from the school didn't mean anything at all. They just haven't made up their mind about the teacher I might replace. I talked to the principal today and she told me she is going to wait until the week of the 20th (my birthday, no less) when that teacher is planning to be out of town. She is going to have me sub for her, and will make up her mind by then. If they do stick with that teacher for this year, they still want me for Spanish. So, I had no reason to be so depressed and full of self doubt.
Erhan is losing weight by heaps and bounds. Almost too much. I'm waiting to hear from his doctor to find out if it is too much. He is losing as much as ten pounds a day with the diuretics. I think that his body is getting a little dehydrated, so I've encouraged him to drink more. His face and upper body now looks skeletal, and his legs are still like tree trunks.

I took Alp to the dentist today. The last few appts., his mom has taken him. I have never been to this dentist. At first, she asked me if I was his Aunt. I explained that I am the stepmom and that he actually lives with us. Later in the appt., she explaimed, "He just trusts you so much! I've never seen him so behaved. You are so good with him!" I was flattered.

I'm really happy today. I'm back in the ballgame with the job at the school I want. Thank you, God!
