It was a nice and mostly quiet weekend for us. Shawn has officially been home for a week now and, apart from us both having moments of extreme emotions, it’s been pretty good.
We spent this weekend just being quiet, being a family and enjoying a nice turkey dinner on Sunday and a nice drive for Shawn and I on Monday. It was good to get him out of the house for a little while.
I know we’ve been quiet with all our friends lately, especially after the crazy barrage of phone calls, emails and messages that have been our new norm over the last few weeks, but that is because it’s an adjustment to have us all home and get into our new schedules and it’s easier to take the time to figure out again how we work as a family. Shawn’s recovery is the most important thing and making sure we are all doing all right with all the changes is a very close second, so, we’re not ignoring people, we’re just making room for us right now. And that’s okay.
I am happy, nay thrilled, to say that this weekend I was able to take to the 5th floor cardiac unit at the hospital a whole bunch of cards and letters from friends and family alike. The staff were thrilled and touched beyond words so to those of you who sent them in, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I also managed to track down the phone number of the EMT who supported me personally on Sept 19th and hope to get in touch with him shortly.
Life trudges on. Keep your chins up, darlings.
