--I had this really random 24-hour-ish flu-type thing that I'm pretty much over now (thank GOODNESS). I caught it from sweet, precious Mary Lu Lu--looking at her, you'd NEVER guess that she would inflict such misery on her mother. But miserable I was. HORRIBLE stomach pain, a fever for goodness' sakes, yuck. I would not have survived yesterday without having a six-year-old daughter who can make everyone lunch AND bring me Mary when she wakes up from her nap, or a five-year-old son who happily brings his mama 7-Up or water.
--A dear, dear friend from California, Andy, is in Denver on business and we got to spend the morning with him! Kevin picked him up from his hotel and they went to breakfast (I wasn't sure how my day was going to go health-wise so I stayed home with the kids), and then came back here for a bit. It was SO great to see him, and I really wish Jeannett and their sweet kids could've been here too.
Well I think that's all, friends. Right now I'm basically knee-deep in:
the start of a school year
an adoption process
and Mary's health issues.
Each of those alone seems enough to keep me busy and on my toes, but really, things are going quite well. Kids are happy. We're finding our school-year groove. I'm genuinely excited about our adoption for the first time in months. I worry about Mary Lu, but am so very grateful for good doctors and medical care, and that we're taking action and hopefully working towards some answers. I hope nothing is actually wrong, but if it is, we're in good hands. Not to mention, when life is so incredibly full, and your baby is so happy and cute and giggles at you throughout the day, ultimately...no matter what health issue she may face...I can say that things are good.
