Only three links remaining in our decannualtion chain - holy moly. We will tear one tonight, one Wednesday night, and the last one Thursday night, and then Friday will be here. I'm not sure I can explain these tears, but lucky for you, I will try :)
We are so over-the-moon excited we can hardly stand it! I can't even imagine my guy, my Samuel, without a trache, and believe me, I've tried :) Well, I CAN imagine it... I just can't believe that it might be this week. Samuel is one step closer to healthy, one step closer to normalcy (not that normal is ideal or anything :) ), one step closer to playing in the sand, and one step closer to being able to put his face in the water. Hard to believe that my child has never put his face in the water... he has no idea what it feels like to have a nice cup of water poured over your head as it washes the day away. He has been bathed, don't get me wrong, but it's just not the same.
I have fully let go of my what-if's... well, as fully as one can I think... and am completely excited about what this weekend might hold. My perma-grin is starting to hurt and I've still got a few days - wish me luck!
Nope, I can't even begin to explain the tears. Oh well. Random... Yesterday I told my boss that I was really glad it was the 14th... because that meant the 18th was only 4 days away :) YEA! He just laughed :)
Don't worry, we're not so focused on the trache that we aren't enjoying normal life too! The first weekend in March our local Daffodil Farm had a U-Pick Daffodils Day, and we loved it. Funny though, I remembered the camera, but had to be reminded to bring a bucket to put the flowers in :) I really think if they offered people a chance to come and just take pictures before the flowers got picked they could make some serious cash.
Omi, Kristen, me, and the babies all had a great time!
He did eventually pick flowers and add to the bucket,
Once Olivia got a hold of two flowers - one for each hand - she was in heaven!
Literally - nothing could have made her happier than a flower for each hand :)
Although, Kristen's bouquet was pretty neat too :)
Hey mama, did you see these flowers?! :)
