Busy Week

the kids enjoyed snuggles with Daddy while camping last weekend before his surgery

This was one of those weeks when I feel I should just sleep in the car - it truly would save time and much needed energy.

Dave had his left knee replacement surgery on Tuesday in Wenatchee so I ran kids to school in the AM and raced home to pick them up in the PM on Wed as my parents graciously helped on Tuesday (surgery day) and on Thursday (to bring them to visit Daddy after school) and on Friday (when he got to come home). I put a lot of miles on my little car and it feels like as many on my little feet. Thanks to Mom and Dad and to Jill who helped a lot with Mackenzie this week. I couldn't have done it without you all. The good news is that he is healing well and all looks much better than on any of the three replacements in the last 5 years on the right side. With any luck, he will be up and around and better than before by the time the kids get out of school.

The kids were so very happy to have him home - as am I! They are being very helpful in taking care of our patient (almost to the point of nuisance).

Well, I am headed off to bed soon as Dave had a lot of nightmares last night and was yelling in his sleep which woke me several times and led to me eventually in a stuperous sleep to grab a magazine and swap it across the bed at him as if to swat a fly - seems harse but it worked for the rest of the night (if that is what you call the hours of 3:30 - 6:30 am).

Good night all and may the Lord bless and keep you all safe.

Sleeping in the car to save time and energy is a great idea!

Man, it seems like you've had more than your fair share of illnesses/surgeries the last couple of years. Hang in there Michelle.
