My mom's surgery happened very quickly and was not expected so I did not make it home for that. My family kept me in the loop and updated me on her progress but it was really difficult to not see her during this time. My dad's surgery was second and it just happened to fall on the Friday of Mother's Day weekend, so I happily made the trip up for a few days.
It was such a great weekend and I was so happy that I was able to be a support to my family. My mom and I spent hours talking and I got to spend time with my sister, brother-in-law, and favorite godson as well! It was so refreshing and comforting to be with my family and I was so happy to be there.
We spent Friday night in the city at Paula and Matt's so we were close to the hospital.
Ben is just now starting to notice Chief - and he can't get enough of him! He chases him around and lines up for treats right along-side his furry sibling.
