But she did twirl around and got "misted" a little.
Then we moved to another section of the park and let the kids play on the play equipment. We have some good acrobats in our family.
We have told the kids a little of what to expect when their baby is born. They know that his heart is broken and that the doctors are going to try to make it work. They understand that I will be in the hospital with him for a while, and that he will have special medication and equipment. They also know that this is severe enough that he might not live, and will instead, go back to be with Heavenly Father. They accept everything, and have great faith.
Emotions are at the surface. Simple things make me tear up. Our life has changed, but I don't see that change as being bad. It is simply a new challenge with a whole lot of love to go with it. We will take these next few months day by day. I feel the need to organize and simplify my life. And so...the days go on.
