Yesterday Jason, Lindsay & Reagan came to visit! What a wonderful, welcomed respite they gave us. They first came to the hospital so that Jason & Lins could visit with my dad. Unfortunately, Reagan wasn't allowed to go to his room since she is so young. And she wasn't happy about it, either! :) But, that gave the two of us playtime in the waiting room while her parents were visiting Daddy. And, you know darn well I enjoyed that!!
After we were all done visiting for the day, the six of us – Mommy, Randy, Jason, Lins, Reagan and I – went to Applebee's for dinner. It was great being with the kids again.
Today Jason & Randy stayed home and did a couple things for my mom while she, Lins & I were visiting Daddy. The guys also took Reagan miniature golfing – and Reagan told me she won. Of course.
This evening we had a nice family dinner at home and then flopped in front of the TV. It is American Idol night, after all. :)
The kids will be leaving tomorrow, but it's so nice to know that we'll be seeing them again shortly. This early surprise was certainly a boost of energy in a very draining week.
Daddy is continuing to improve, although he had a tough day today. You know the deal, two steps forward, one back. But, all in all, he's moving forward. Again, I thank each of you for the prayers, emails, comments, thoughts, and concerns you've sent me. Mere words cannot fully express how grateful I am to be surrounded by such love.
Until the next time . . .
