Let’s all exhale deeply

Dear Max

You are getting back today and do I even need to tell you how excited I am? I have received pics and daily updates, and you’ve had a great time with your family. We have some cool events over the next few weeks when you’re back, and I can’t wait to share them with you. Even your bestie Levi has been counting the number of sleeps left

The last week, I’m happy to report here, has been a good one. Granny is doing better, and each day I’ve visited her in rehab, I’m stunned and in awe of the fight in her. Most of her tubes have gone, she can now swallow and “speak” to me, albeit not that coherently. It’s weird, but being a mom to you has allowed me to be a better daughter to Granny.

She is vulnerable and scared, and weepy some of the time, and I’m trying to comfort her as I would a child. It’s something I didn’t know I had  towards her, but I’m glad I’ve harnessed it, finally.

I’m still not in a comfort zone, and each time my phone rings my heart drops a little.

Despite this, and because of this, I’m feeling like there’s lots of light shining into our lives at the moment. And that finding it is often the biggest challenge.

I can’t wait to hold you, eat sushi with you, and answer all your questions.

    So glad to hear your mom is doing better. I hear you on the issue of being a better daughter once you’re become a mother. I have found that I understand my mom so much better than I did before.
