Cody and Shelby will be visiting this upcoming week, so we are really excited about that! It will be nice to have our whole family under one roof for a couple of days. It is also fair week, so we will have to find a day to take Carla to the fair! Last year was the first year that she was healthy enough to attend a fair and she loved it a lot. So, we are hoping for the same results this year :)
Bobby and I were able to have a five day get away last week, and Bobby's parents watched Carla. Our friends Chad and Melissa pretty much took Bobby and I on an adult Make a Wish vacation. It really helped us to feel better and more like our old selves. It is amazing how wound up a person can get after seven years of chronic stress. Taking a few days and not having to think about med times, taking care of anyone or that ticker in my mind of things that need to be done was seriously rejuvenating. A big THANK YOU to our friends, Chad and Melissa, we appreciate it more than you will ever know!
And, in the essence of keeping the fun going, Bobby played a pickup gig with The Alleged band in Great Falls Friday night. I went out, saw him play and did a little dancing with friends. There was a time when I hadn't ever missed a single gig of Bobby's (or baseball game of Cody's). Nowadays the only thing I don't miss are doctor appointments. So, it has been a nice couple of weeks, and I feel happy :)
