Everybody in our family has been sick on and off since my parents left a week ago. the worst was my baby boy whom I finally took to the pediatrician today and who was diagnosed with double ear infection in addition to there being a mild concern for him developing pneumonia – his breathing has been quite heavy and loud in the past few days. He’s on antibiotics and oral Albuterol now so hopefully he’ll be better soon. Right now he’s sleeping in my arms, which makes typing very difficult, but at least he’s sleeping peacefully.
I really wish my mom were here right now. As much as I miss her all the time anyway, whenever things get hard, I want here to be here and just hold me at the end of the day. There is truly nothing more comforting than physical closeness to my mom. I miss her dearly.
Here she is, as beautiful as ever, on our trip to Sandy Point State Park exactly a week and one day ago. In three months I’ll see her again. I can’t wait.
