Through the Pain
Thank you for all of your well wishes and healing hugs!
I am still silent and looking forward to smiling again soon.
Less four teeth, a dislocated lower jaw and 10 stitches later...
I'm up and blogging again. I need to say my husband is a saint, for caring for our grouchy toddler who can't understand why his Mama is not reading to him or singing with him anymore, for doing laundry and making lunches, for reading my mind and knowing when my ice pack was no longer cold, for finding Little One's binki in the middle of the night, for applying chap stick and feeding me ice chips... thank you hun, I love you more than words can say. And many thanks also to my older boys who are surprising me (a little bit) with their loving remarks and even the occasional back rub! I cried tonight when I couldn't eat cottage cheese and my nine year old said, "Don't worry Mama, it won't always be this way."
I Know I am very blessed and I am thankful. Especially for my four boys but also for doctors and strong medicines, for ice packs and ice cream, for family and good friends and the telephone, without which I would not be surviving this week. PEACE to you all~~MM
