Precious Days at Home
We spent the weekend enjoying one another’s company and in sadness over Mason’s death. Shayne is going to be able to attend his calling hours after he drops Christi & I off at the Columbus airport tomorrow night.
Saturday morning, the girls found a hamster, which we thought was just sleeping Friday night, to be dead. The other one appears to be fine. Shayla quietly cried with huge tears at many points throughout the weekend. She wrapped it up and decorated its burial box. We prayed together and Shayne and I read some books about pets’ deaths to help Shayla cope.
Our beautician, Cindy, trimmed the bangs in Christi’s hat with hair and it really looks cute and very realistic now. (During church she kept taking it off and putting it back on I’m certain much to the shock of some sitting behind her.) So funny!
I was happy to be at work today while Grandma Nee Nee (Shayne’s awesome mom) tended to the girls. (It was "Teacher in-service day" much to Christi’s disappointment; she wanted to go to school.)
Christi continues to feel VERY well and we continue to be filled with gratitude. We don't ever take a painfree day for granted! We know this upcoming round of chemo is going to hit her extremely hard and she soon won’t be feeling well at all. We’ll fully enjoy these last precious days being together at home.
