Thank you all for your encouraging words and prayers. I hesitated to post yesterday’s journal because I know that after Carmen is gone, we will wish for just one day with her again. Even a really, really hard day. I sure am glad that we will see her again and then have eternity with her, happy and whole! For now, we will enjoy the moments we have with her.
Carmen was spitting up blood this morning but I think maybe a new tooth is coming in. She is drooling a lot too. There is no way to look in Carmen’s mouth as she BITES! New York Grandma can attest to this! Carmen’s Hospice nurse is coming by today so hopefully we can figure out what is going on.
After posting yesterday, I decided that I would get out of the house with the girls. It was a perfect day and we decided to go to McDonald’s. My plan was to be home by 1pm but we managed to get to McDonald’s at 1pm! Took me awhile but it was worth it. Lauren played and played with a little girl on the play ground. Another MOPS mom was there, so we had a good conversation.
This morning the night nurse stayed till 10:30am so I took Lauren to school (Dave usually takes her to school in the morning) and then went to the gym. I then went grocery shopping and on my way out, got a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. Heather over at http://whittakerwoman.typepad.com/ recommended it and WOW, it is good!
Edited to Add: If you don’t normally drink caffeine, ask for the decaf! I was jittery all day!
Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, dessert in a cup, worth every calorie!
