Post-Op Day 19

Nothing new to report here. Nothing has really changed. Harlie is the same as yesterday except more tired. Much less play today.

Tom is taking me out to dinner tonight for our anniversary, which is Thursday. He also sent me out to get a manicure and pedicure today while he stayed with Harlie. It was very nice to be out. I have spent between 10 to 13 hours a day for the last 19 days, in the hospital. Of course, how can I complain when Harlie has been here 24/7? But, I have to admit, it wears you down, that's for sure.

I am really missing the boys, Rooney, home and our old life. Tom asked if I wanted him to bring me warmer clothes from home. For the life of me I couldn't remember what clothes I had. Totally forgot which jeans were my favorite. It feels like forever since I've been home. Tom said he did the math and out of 70+ days of summer, I have only seen the boys 27 days.

Tom's mom and my mom took the boys to my sister's lake house this weekend. I am so glad the boys are in such good care and are having a great summer. Between Mary Ann (Tom's mom), and all my family and friends, they are keeping the boys busy and happy, and for that I am so grateful.

Poor Mary Ann didn't expect to stay away from her home for so long, either! I'm so thankful she's been so flexible that she could stay and take care of the boys and the animals at home.

Well, I know this wasn't much of an update. But, it's all I could muster today.

Thank you all for all your love and support. I can't imagine where we'd be without it.

Much love,
Christy xoxo

The days in hospital are so draining and it all sounds very relentless. I hope today is a lot better and you are getting some rest. I'm glad you have good support and you are doing amazingly well. Hang in there. Lots of love xx
