yearning for normal

parenting in odd places


The hospital lobby

First things first. Lachlan is doing great. His incision issue turned out not to be a serious thing - just a bit of dissolved fatty tissue, not too much in the way of infection. Although we didn't catch them with the camera, Lachlan's smiles are happening all the time. We're just hanging out here for a few more doses of IV antibiotics then they'll let us go home. Lachlan must have been channeling your kind wishes. Thank you so much for your words of support. That was a rough day for me, and I was bolstered by your presence in my life.

Second things second. We, the parents and grandparents, will be oh so happy to be back home again (this time for good!) You know what they say ... home is where the (healthy) heart is. Feeling grateful today for Lachlan's strength and good spirits.
