I tell you what, I have felt so blessed in the last few days. First I had my knee surgery and came home to an answering machine & mailbox full of get well messages. My MIL met us up at the surgery center. She stayed and kept CSP company while I was under the knife. Lisanne wanted to know what it feels like. It’s kind of weird. You don’t remember it. The last thing I remember was the man putting the oxygen mask on me telling me to take deep breaths. The next thing I knew I was in the recovery room waking up. Then MIL came home with us and took care of Zoe while CSP & I slept. I woke up to chicken & dumplings from the Cracker Barrel (yum) that FIL brought over when he came to pick up MIL.
Then Saturday my Mom came over. She went grocery shopping then cooked all day long. Serously. ALL DAY LONG. She made meatloaf just like I like it, rice, potato salad, baked beans and even baked a cake! Plus she kept me company while CSP slept (he was working 3rd shift). Sara came over with flowers and visited for a little while. Then Papa came over for dinner. After everyone left and it was just Gigi & me we watched movies until really late. Gigi spent the night then got up and made breakfast. She took care of Zoe the whole time too. We lounged about all day until she had to go home. She called me later with the news of A’s death.
Throughout the whole thing I’ve gotten so much support from friends, and family, my mom’s group, and you fabulous bloggy people. My heart is full and I thank you.
