    Only a quick update.

    Spinal Surgery is over. Moo has been home for almost 2 weeks. He’s recovering well, getting more mobility every day.

    Not everything went to plan. He spent 3 long days in PICU. We are still waiting for a hoist for home use – fortunately we have borrowed one…

    Do you have those moments when you just want time to stop? Stop moving forward. Stop pushing ahead. Stop right here and let me off. This is as far as I want to go.

    the three boys at the movie night

    Keepin’ it real

    Things get a little stressful in the school holidays. It’s not that easy to go out with Moo and the other boys on my own. Scrappy has his own way of keeping my life interesting with his inquisitive mind. Master C doesn’t stop lodging complaints or arguing on points of fairness.
