Quick update

I was hoping to post a Sunday Afternoon Tea today but I'm still in Dr. Mom mode.

Christopher's surgery went very well but he had a couple recovery challenges the day of the surgery. Since he is uninsured, they let him go home late Friday night after his complications were cleared up.

He is doing very well now. He's still in post surgery pain but he's finally able to get up and walk around with someone to lean on.

I was up with him every two hours the first night (I told Stephanie it was like having a new baby at home again!) and last night I was up three times.

Can we say sleep deprivation?

However, we are now in the process of healing nicely and I should get some sleep tonight. :)

I continue in prayer <><

So thankful Christopher is home and on the mend although the process is never enjoyable.

I hope you're able to take a few kitty-kat-naps here and there.
