The second week home is coming to an end, and I still can’t find anything in my house! Everything was rearranged, out of need (and done by love), but O really needed that oven mitt! 🙂 Katy has been doing so well the last 2 days. Her rash came and went, and we think it was a new soap. Her skin is still a little sensitive. She has been eating well, and getting all of the protein that she is supposed to be getting to heal well. She is enjoying all of her time with Arielle, jake, and Amber, and we have been having Arielle sleep with Katy and I. I think it is so healing for her to have the baby by her side. She gets to feel close to her daughter, and Arielle gets mommy time. I gave Arielle her first bath from me, tonight, and have started adding rice cereal to her bottle. She is starting to hold her own bottle up when she eats. I was able to feed Katy while Arielle was eating, and I only had to help her with the bottle once or twice. She amazes me!
The party is on, and will be held at one of our favorite restaraunts. Due to the seating, I am asking anyone intersted e-mail me. I have confirmed 30 people so far, and I have room for 35 more. Please remember…THIS IS A SURPRISE! Katy thinks my mom and stepdad are taking us out for our birthdays to dinner. When we walk in, SURPRISE! I know she will enjoy the company, and the 2 hour window is about her limit for sitting in a chair right now.
I am pleased to announce that my band will be playing at CASTAWAYS BAR and GRILL in Surfside, TX next Friday (the 11th), and again the following Friday. I have missed Surfside, Castaways, and all of the beach people that I surround myself with during the Summers. I know it will be bitter-sweet to play there again. On the one hand, it will feel great to play. On the other hand, I will miss having Katy singing with us. She was singing along while I was practicing, today. She doesn’t quite have her singing voice back yet, but she is getting stronger every day. If any of you are in the area on either of the next few weeks, stop by and say “hi.”
Well, as usual, the house work is easier to do when everyone else is asleep. More later.
Love to all,
