My sister and brother-in-law are here with the kids. It is so good to see them. She told them before they got here that Auntie was sick and that they couldn't jump or climb on me and that they had to be gentle around me. My nephew made me his rendition of Van Gogh's sunflowers to cheer me up. It's perfect, and made me cry. I'm so happy that they're here, because I get such limited time with the kiddies, but it is a bitter sweet because I can't pick them up or wrestle with them or really play, and that makes me sad, because of the such limited time. But for now, they're here and I'm going to try to do as much with them as I can. Tomorrow we're going to try the pool - I'll hang out in the shade and watch them play, but at least I'll be there.
They're heading out in a few days to make their way to Nebraska to see my brother-in-law's family. We're on the way out there -- and on the way back, so they'll stop again after the 4th of July. By then, I should have the drains taken out and be more mobile. I'm really excited they're here.
