If you want to know how Cristina's doing it, here's a link to her blog: http://www.bakerfamilynet.com/wp/. Beware... it will make you cry!!! I'm crying - I couldn't even read it all. The details she puts reminds me of the reality of the situation. Given my personality, I look on the bright side all the time so the reality of it doesn't always hit.
Anyway... I'm rambling. Off to get a hug from my husband.
