Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig

Whew! We're home. Edward's mom is doing MUCH better!!! She was moved out of ICU yesterday and is now in a more comfortable private room. She'll remain there until she is able to gain back more of her strength. Her body is very weak from all that she's been through and just from laying in a bed for the last week and a half, but her mind is very sharp. She has no memory of the last week, and believe me, that's a good thing. She had a very rough time.

We were so glad to get back to our kids. Between all the kids filling us in on every minute of our absence, we didn't get a word in for about the first hour we were home. We learned all about the fun stuff they did, the restaurants they got to eat at, the games they played, and the fact that Drew conned my parents and ended up wearing his sweat suit to church. Yep, they were living it up with Grammy and Grandad.

And absence really does make the heart grow fonder. I just wanted to hold each one on my lap yesterday. It was nice that Edward and I had some time together, but boy did we miss those little monkeys.
