I came up in the afternoon so Tyler could go home for a night. When Natalie woke from her nap she sat up ever so quickly and gave me a giant hug. That made my day! I was equally as glad to see her. I feel much less anxiety and worry when I am with her, than when I am home. However, it doesn't matter where I am...I always feel I should be somewhere else. I think about the kids at home when I'm with Natalie and when I'm home I think constantly of Natalie. What a dilemma!
Natalie and I really had a fun evening. We read some fun books. Planned out our week of countdown to engraftment. We plan to have something to look forward to each day so the time will pass a bit faster. This evening we played a joke on one of the nurses. She wanted me to place a whoopee cushion on the chair where the nurse will sit and video the nurses reaction. Anything for a smile...right? Hmm..that might be a fun video post sometime. I'll admit I struggle with technology. I never have the cables, cards, chargers, and such that I need to make anything of it...thus the shortage of pictures or no pictures when I post.
Natalie told me that I am not a very good checkers player and that she would teach me how to play. I think that is a fabulous idea Natalie. The truth is--I really am trying.
Alice has developed a cold and cough over the past two days. Tyler will bring her in tomorrow to be examined. Hopefully nothing will come of it.
The nurse switched the chair in our room for a bigger and softer chair. I'm looking forward to a good nights rest.
Thanks to all,
