Katy was up before ten this morning looking for breakfast. Paul and I were in the kitchen with Qavah when we heard something and it was Katy hopping down the stairs! She felt so good all day. It was only a five hundred calorie day and slow going as far as eating was concerned, but everything stayed down with no problems. The little she is eating has the most nutritional value and it is keeping her well. Her weight continues to hold steady. This afternoon she ran errands with me. We ended up at Target and it was like old times. Especially when she stopped to look at a really cute pajama set and said, “Mom this is screaming Christmas gift for Katy.” I love her sense of humor. After some friends recently bought her a new set of pajamas she has decided all the pajamas that have hospital memories attached to them need to be replaced.
We celebrated Paul’s 60th birthday last night and all the kids came home. We also had Dan and Julie for what turned out to be a Thanksgiving celebration as well as a birthday party. It was wonderful to see all the faces around the table and Katy able to enjoy sitting with us. They showered Paul with gifts and blessings. I gave Paul an electric leaf blower for his birthday because I asked for one for Christmas but was in a hurry to use one. Mom and Dad Campbell told us about theirs and how fast it makes cleaning up after mowing, so I put it on the “must buy” list. Today while Katy, Qavah, and I were having a quiet time together in our home library, suddenly our calm was shattered by the start up of the leaf blower in our dining area. I looked up to see Paul aim the new blower at us. Paul was trying it out on us making us scream and squeal as the cold air blasted us. He may be sixty but he finally turned it off with a ten-year-old-boy grin on his face. He said sheepishly, “Powerful, isn’t it?” We adjusted our hair styles and agreed that there is still a lot of boy in the man.Comments:
