Can't wipe the grin off

Avery: "Can we go for a walk?"

Me: "Sure, sweetie. When Dad gets home we'll go for a walk."

Avery: "With boys?"

Briar: "Mom, is the baby out of your belly yet?"

Me: "Not quite, honey, but soon."

Briar: When your belly is broke then it'll come out?"

Me: "Kind of."

Briar: "And mama, then I'll put tape on your belly 'til it's better."

Me: "I love you."

Very cute but I hope she doesn't have some gruesome picture in her mind of your belly splitting like an over-ripe watermelon! At least she wants to make it better for you.

And um .. with boys???

Heather said...

That's so nice that she'll tape it for you. I hope she uses duct tape. You know that stuff can fix anything.

Amy said...

Such sweet little ones:)

I especially love their black sequined tops!

Seriously...I love these conversations but today when Felix asked me for the 100th time - Who's that? - while pointing to some random stranger and I almost lost it. I kept my cool though and responded in a voice that didn't sound too annoyed that I didn't know.

Can't wait until he starts saying more zany things! :)

And yeah, I second the use of duct tape... :)

Jenty said...

LMAO! That's so sweet!

Crystal said...

You better get some good tape before you pop!
BTW your girls are looking more alike everyday. I have noticed the same thing with mine right now. I think it is because the little ones are looking so much bigger with their longish hair and thinning faces.

Lindz said...

Classic! Is she going to put tape down "there" till it's better too, ha!

My Darling Friend, please forgive this intrusion … but knowing your compassionate Heart, I am compelled to send this to you. Please read it, and follow your Heart’s leading. I have unwavering trust in that. I Love You, Your Servant, John-Michael

Oh my darlings, you sure know how to make a girl cry. I have just come home briefly to check in, there are too many messages to answer but I appreciate each and everyone one of then so very much.

Unfortunately, I have been given a bit of a bum steer in terms of Jack being able to stay in Hospice with me. That is actually not the case, apart from a night here and there, so the woman that told me it was possible has really got a lot to answer for as I pinned all my hopes on this. Anyway, Jacks Dad came down and can stay at my place this week at least but that's it. After that who knows and yet they are saying I need to be in Hospice for a lot longer yet.

The pain last night, defied description I have never felt such pain in my life including child birth, I was a sobbing mess, eventually they had to knock me out and I finally got some rest. Anyway they are comparing scans and trying very hard to work out what is best to do. I know I desperately need chemo, the longer I go without it, the bigger the tumour is growing and pressing further on the nerves. So now not only do I have megga pain that is not responding to treatment, I have a child not welcome at Hospice and my life is completely screwed.

I spent the night in tears and most of the day too, I don't have think I have any left but who knows, I will let you know how tonight goes. I am a broken woman.

There is talk about Jack having to move up with David to Warragul and change schools and everything. I said NO WAY I am not giving him up when I am not ready to die and I am not giving him up twice. I will work something out. There is no way he needs to go to another school, he needs the security of his local school here and his friends and having close contact with me.

Anyway my friends, it is a lot to contemplate tonight, I will do my best and I will not be letting my son go away from me no matter what. Please keep praying and sending me your love and care, I need you all so desperately right now. I hate to have to go, but I must leave now to go back to Hospice as they need to medicate me there, it is too dangerous to be on the medication I need to be on at home.

I will be thinking of you and I will post again either tomorrow or the next day, I promise.

Love to you all, my heart is full of you love and hugs to each and every one of you. Xxxx
