In a crazy turn of events, I'm happy to say WE ARE HOME!
It's amazing what a well timed phone call and some college courses in persuasive arguments can do when you are in the hospital.
Home. It's such a great place to be.
In between PICC line placements and Track and Field meets I did my best to be mom to all as Erik was father to all. We don't do many things well, but sometimes-just sometimes-we get this family thing right.
The PICC line took longer than expected so as Erik and I impatiently waited to see our baby we were getting location updates from Ella. Counting down the minutes until her first event, I was able to kiss Lucy's forehead as she was still recovering from surgery and then drove as fast as the law allowed to Ella's meet. Thankfully, I made it in time for her 3rd long jump turn.
And Jack, well don't worry about him. He was entertained by my father and his cousin Maddie.
For tonight, all is well.
