This weekend grandma made the trek to come stay with me! She is a nurse and already knew a lot about all the gadgets and widgets in my room. She understands the tubes and bandaids that I wear. She tells me it’s all a part of getting strong and healthy so that I can go home and be with my family. I can’t wait for that! She talks so sweetly to me, I can tell she has nursed many souls before me. Thanks grandma! I am thankful to be surrounded by so many loving people- I was born into the right family, church, and community! Mommy doesn’t like to leave me and has been blessed by grandmothers and friends who are willing to sit with me or pop in to sing to me or pray with me so she can go home and be with my family. I am glad mommy goes home sometimes. She comes back refreshed, smelling of home, and full of kisses for me from my brothers and sisters. MMMmmmmm… I have a storehouse of kisses to deliver to them and to many of you when I leave this place.
If you are wondering about my blue lips in these photos…no, grandma did not feed me blueberries (not yet anyway). It is from a medicine they gave me that is purple and it turned everything near my mouth bright purple, including my hand! Dad thought maybe I ate a Smurf heehee.
