Changing of the Guards

Today Emily left and went back home. I feel like a hole is in my house without her. She was so incredibly helpful and did things other people would not. Helped me get dressed, emptied my drains, cleaned my house and watched my children. I miss her already. She has been an incredible angel this entire time - saying and doing just the right things all of the time. I love you Emily - I hope some day you can live closer to me.


The good news is that my Sisters Sarah and Heidi have come to replace her. I am already feeling so much better. Practically myself. I am excited for the week ahead to keep my mind off of my drains and on other things like having a good time with them.

Oh, I'm sorry Emily had to go. I'm sure it was as hard for her as it was for you. So... two weeks out from surgery! Yippeee! Hopefully this week you'll be able to say good-bye to those drains and have one more thing behind you!!! I'm thinking of you!

I love you too, big sister! I didn't do anything that you wouldn't do for me or anyone else. I was just happy to be there, and hope I can find a way to move out there soon!

So happy your sisters are there for you and thrilled to hear that you are feeling better. You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers.

Sisters are God's gift to us all. There are there through thick or thin, laughter or tears. Sounds like you have got some of the best.
