The last few days have been all about getting Meg what she needs and trying to convince her not to do too much. If you know Megan, you know she is a go go go kind of gal! I know the slower pace has been hard for her, but she's listening to what her body needs and I know she's doing her best to be a good patient.
The thing she keeps talking about is how blown away she is by all the support. We talked about how it feels a little weird to be putting such personal info out there for the Facebook world, but how humbling it is to hear from so many people who care. This is what makes social media so insanely cool. Each of you have warmed her heart and made her smile. I wouldn't let her attempt to respond to everyone because she needs to rest, but please know she says THANK YOU a thousand times over.
Here's a little bit of how we've been keeping ourselves busy....
A few of Meg's friends stopped by for a visit on Thursday night and it was so fun to meet them and for Meg to be able to do a little rundown of her experience at the hospital. So glad she has found such good people here. And wow, the goodies they brought with them!! She was blown away that her 'fellow fellows' all went in on flowers, sweet treats and of course, wine. What more could you ask for!! We've also had some surprise deliveries that have made for the perfect bright spots when Meg was not feeling so good and in need of a pick me up. She sends a huge THANK YOU to each of you. (My dad is also grateful, as he has been poaching oatmeal raisin cookies and other goodies like it's his job.)
It's Saturday morning now and after a low-key Friday, we are about to venture out for some mani-pedis. Not sure my dad will be taking part in that. We'll meet him for brunch afterward. Stay tuned for some very wild and crazy adventures with Morrie the cat!! He and I had a big day yesterday. More details to come.
Thanks again to all!!
