Just a quick update

It’s been such a long couple of days that I’m finding it hard to string words along properly. I am so fried. M is so fried. And the kids have no clue so they’re their usual ebullient and rambunctious selves. To say that it’s a challenge is an understatement.

Today I channeled lots of little girl energy into finding pictures of flowers and hearts in magazines so that tomorrow we can put it all together in a collage to brighten up my father-in-law’s ICU room. Much to their delight our big art project required a trip to Michael’s for glue sticks and extra foamie stickers.

My father-in-law is still improving. Today he was more lucid and alert than he’s been in days. We’re hopeful that he’ll be even more so tomorrow. Hopefully the bright collage stuck together with love will even bring a smile to his face.
