That’s a long time to be sick when you’re newly five and full of energy.
It’s a long time to be away from school and your friends and even, really, yourself.
#3 was a total trooper though.
An exhausted, crazy sick, too-out-of-it-to-even-complain trooper.
But, he’s better now!
Not 100% better, but on his way (technically he has to be monitored and blood tested by his specialists monthly and then every 3 months for the next year).
He went back to school for the first full day yesterday (okay, it’s just preschool so full day is like 4 hours total).
There were a few tears (his illness made him VERY attached to me so if you see me around town with my 50 pound preschooler wrapped around my hip like a toddler, this is why), and he came home too wiped out to even make it inside the house, but he finished the day and it’s just another step on his road to being back to awesome.
Which is, um, AWESOME!
Know what else is awesome? All of the lovely, amazing, generous fellow bloggers who came together to shine some light on #3 and our family this past month.
The gifts we have received from all of you who care about us have been mind blowing. Like no-way-we-deserve-this-can’t-stop-crying-because-people-are-so-nice mind blowing.
We are thinking of a good way to pay it forward, but in the meantime, #3 wanted to just say this to everyone who has sent him well wishes, and prayers, and gifts, and really cool monkey cards…
