In the last days of June I severed a nerve in my hand while pitting avocadoes. I ended up having surgery. No driving, biking, or changing diapers. During this, my kids somehow contracted MRSA and were on several rounds of antibiotics and needed their bandages changed daily. Silas had to take time off to take care of all of us and drive us to frequent Dr. Appointments. As we all started to recover it was time for Autumn's beautiful wedding and all the busyness that entailed. Then we came home and Zeke got his hand smashed in a door and we had another ER visit for them to glue his fingers back together and more bandages to change daily. Then Silas started traveling for work and I'm in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy, and MAN, this summer has been a hard one.
But Silas got home Friday and we've enjoyed a beautiful weekend together and being a partner and a mother was just easy for the first time in a long time. And I am really grateful for that.
