Yeah... last night sucked. Mattias screamed, Elise went low, and there was very little sleep. And tonight wasn't much different. Except that Elise's BG is doing okay, and Mattias only screamed for 2.5 hours.
But you know what? I'm okay. I mean, I'm still fall-on-the-floor exhausted, but I'm not falling apart at the seams like I was last night. Because today, I was the recipient of so many blessings.First, by my DOC peeps. Waking up and reading all those encouraging comments really helped set the tone for today.
Then, my friend Liz dropped by with some lunch, and we spent a few hours talking and playing with the kids. It was so nice to have an actual, real live person to talk to!
Later, Fred emailed me to tell me that Team Elise hade received a donation from someone who reads my blog. Their generosity blew me away, and completely made my day. Thank you Janine!
And then tonight I received a phone call from my sweet friend Ruth. She lives in China and just hearing from her was the cherry on top of all the goodness that surrounded me today. But wait... there's more! Ruth had dinner delivered to my house. Ruth ordered pizza for me. From China. From the future (it was already Aug. 23 there). How awesomely amazing is she?
Although the some of the events of today were very similar to yesterday, one thing was very different... I didn't feel so alone.
