Looks like we made it…

It turns out there’s nothing quite like living the one-day-at-a-time-at-the-hospital life to make you REALLY excited about middle school graduation. Part of me still can’t believe this almost didn’t happen, and the other part is afraid to breathe, just in case I’m asleep.

Today is a good day.

    It did happen, please breathe for blue is not an attractive facial hue, and it is indeed a good day. Hugs to Chickie, and congrats!

    Congratulations to Chickadee – It is a tribute to her that she has been able to rise above what she has had to endure this past year. It is also a tribute to you, Otto, and Monkey too. You are an amazing family.

    Congrats to Chickadee. I’m glad she was able to make up all the work she missed while she was sick and graduate with her class. That must have been a challenge.

    Heh, I got an earworm too, but my lyrics were off, so I got Melissa Manchester’s Midnight Blue. Now she and Barry are duking it out in my ears, aaagh!

    Oh, yeah, and YAY!

    It’s the small pleasures that get us through. Yesterday, I had to just allow my chipmunks to cover themselves in mud. Because after a long hard couple of days, they needed it.
