For those of you who gave me input on this situation, I texted my brother-in-law, and it turns out my nephew is being taken for some medical tests this morning, so today isn’t going to be the big day. But I am glad to have made the decision for Sophia to go see him. Now my husband can have some time to come to peace with it. Also, I am going to keep the visit very brief when we go. I have a tendency to sit with him for about 3 hours, but I’m not going to put her through that-at least not the first time.
So, decision made-but a little respite from an unpleasant necessity. Today we are headed to the beach for the last Friday of Summer.
Here’s a photo from 2009-the last time the family all went to the beach together. Jeremy is the blondie in the middle. It was impossible to get a decent photo of those little squirrels! I miss those days. I’d be lying if I said they were carefree, but we hadn’t seen a lot of the anguish we’ve gone through since. Ah well, the human heart is resilient!
