Sometime ago, on this journey of mine, my real life and online life merged and became my life.
This week my amazing real life online friends physically called me on the telephone, left me wonderful comments, wrote me emails of support, exchanged stories from their childhood, left me witty twitter messages, and sent tons of moral support that helped me through Lola's operation.
My modern day life, of hanging out my laundry to dry every day and leaving it out for you to absorb, has given me so much to be grateful for. I can't imagine going through motherhood alone.
In real life, as I was reading some touching emails, the door bell rang and a friend dropped off a box of Popsicles tied with a big pink bow. Later on my phone rang and another friend offered her loving support while my comment box was filling up.
This is my life. And I am lucky to have so many wonderful friends.
Lola's operation on Thursday went great. The nurses wanted to take her home for she was being a perfect patient. At home she was a perfect middle child patient. It hurt me so much to see my daughter in physical pain. Her swollen face, sunken eyes, lifeless body, and sore throat begged to be held. "I can hear my voice, Mama." She whispered to me as I dragged her queen sized mattress down the stairs and into the family room where she could watch movies with me and cuddle. "Mama, you are talking so loud." I can only imagine what things must be like for her now. "Oh man, I can hear the dog barking and the baby crying and everything is so LOUD." She told me as the phone rang with her preschool teacher on the other line.
At the end of the day, after two bowls of ice cream, three Popsicles, two yogurts, one jello, three chocolate chip cookies, and one slice of yummy bread she turned to me and whispered, "Staying at home is boooooorrrring. Can I go to school tomorrow?"
She is fine. I am fine. Thank you all for being a part of our real life.
