I'm feeling very thankful that despite all that has happened we are still smiling and doing OK. I have been amazed, humbled and touched by the support we have received from friends old and new both online and in person. Thanks so much to those who have provided hugs, good wishes, encouragement and tissues when needed. Thanks also to those who have provided us with delicious dinners and other treats to keep us fed and functioning.
We are very fortunate to have a large hospital up the road with dedicated staff providing excellent care to both myself and my husband, and also to 11yo who injured her foot recently. Free, good quality healthcare is a luxury many people elsewhere do not have but one we are blessed with and very grateful for.
Bubs is gaining weight well, hubby is progressing well with rehab and can get about now, my post op infections are sorted, 11yo's ankle should be fine soon and our other two girls are happy and healthy. We have lots to be thankful and grateful for despite having a tough time recently. That's what keeps me going when times are hard.
I am hoping to gradually get back into blogging when time allows but will not resume my regular 3 or 4 posts a week for quite a while yet. Thank you so much for your patience whilst we adjust to having a new baby, who is stubbornly nocturnal, and fitting in my husband's schedule of rehab appointments.
