I'm so happy to report that the LB is doing a lot better now. I'm feeling better too, naturally; it's so hard to see a child in pain or discomfort, even when you know it's for a good reason. We're bouncing back, physically and emotionally, after a hard couple of weeks and it's getting better all the time, thankfully.
The Bear came back at the end of the week and we spent all weekend at home together, doing jobs around the house and relaxing too. I missed him so much; the week without him was hard, and I know he'd rather have been here too, but work called. Anyway, it's good to have him back and I enjoyed our quiet weekend. The normalcy of it was perhaps the best part: our "stove popcorn" on Friday night, our at-home date on Saturday night, the radio tuned to NPR all weekend, chickens and children playing in the backyard. The LB had his catheter removed on Friday and is getting around a little more, and we're all feeling a sense of relief that the worst is behind us. This little boy is SO brave and I am so proud of him.
Thanks for your support and kind words over the past couple of weeks. They have meant so much to me. I really appreciate it. If you haven't already entered my little giveaway, to win a few simple items as a token of my appreciation, you can do so here. I feel like I can get back to blogging more now, and catching up with other blogs too. Thanks for being patient with me. Today, I'm making minestrone soup in the slowcooker and hoping to bake some cookies too. The next few weeks are all about rest and recovery for the LB before school starts, so I've got some peaceful at-home activities planned for the three of us during the days.
What are you looking forward to right now? I'm excited for RAIN this week, the monsoon is here and we're getting a little bit of rain every day lately. I'm also looking forward to the Bear's birthday in a few weeks, which kicks off our household's birthday season.
I hope you have a great week, my lovely friends.
