Six More

What a long week it has been! The only way that I managed to survive was because of a special treat that arrived last night from my wonderful friend, Jen (see her blog here).
Thank you Jen!!!! I had a whole bar for breakfast today!

Guess who is coming home in only 6 hours (not that I am counting)? My husband and Francesca! Horray! I think I am beginning to appreciate my husband now that he has been gone for a week. Especially at 4 am when Victoria decides she is all done with sleeping, every single night!  There has also been nobody to make McDonald's runs for me. I even had to take all the trash out myself (well, I had the kids do it, but I still had to supervise).

Francesca came through the surgery very well. She didn't have the breathing problems that she had last time. Now she has 10 fingers and 10 toes.  She also has over 1000 stitches and four casts for a month!

I can't wait to see them both! At least little Miss Sticky Fingers won't be able to get into anything for a while.

Little Catherine said she can't wait until Francesca comes home. So sweet, let's hope the feeling lasts for more than a few minutes!

I will post pictures soon! Gotta go bake some brownies for the travelers!


  1. What awesome news! Enjoy your chocolate. :)

  2. It is wonderful to hear Francesca did so well. I can't wait to see her with all her pinkies and toesies! I hope the recovery won't be too hard on all of you. Thank you for keeping us followers updated. Your blog is a favorite.
