Boys weekend + girls week = 7 days of love!
When we got the news that the first transplant failed, our initial instincts were to fly everyone out here as soon as possible, so we could all be together. Brian and Ian already had flights booked last weekend, so they came first. The day after they left, Zoe and Rowan's home nurse Cindy flew out as well. Below are some of the precious, priceless photos I was able to get during both the "boys weekend" and then "girls week". It did our hearts, souls and spirits good to share some nice quiet moments together, regrouping, loving on each other and preparing to start the next battle. Things are pretty quiet around here today, now that everyone has flown back to Texas, but I'm so glad we have these photos and these memories to keep us going.
Hugs, walking laps, drawing, video games, games, makeshift movie theater in the room, and lots of love...
Coloring, drawing, movie marathon ("Step Up" 1 through 5:), hand holding, video games, naps, and lots more love...
It has been hard not having everyone together, but we are happy to have gotten time this past week with each of them at least. And their hugs filled Rowan's tank up quite a bit.
Hopefully, unlimited "Mommy love" will fill in the gaps for now:)
