I was having a hard time feeling decisive on my own, but once Aaron finished his stuff this morning he came to Dexter's bedside and saved the day, as usual. Talking together about the immediate decisions, we agreed right away about getting Dexter home today without a monitor and we felt instant peace. I didn't feel distressed, confused, or overwhelmed, as you may have sensed from this morning's post. And I no longer questioned if those decisions pushed me out of good-mom territory. As far as the other decisions go, we're sure that we'll be blessed with the light we need to see that stretch of path when we've traveled to that point. We're grateful that we've been given enough light to see as far down the path as we need to for now. And I'm so blessed to have Aaron as the head of our household; he really keeps his head together when I'm getting muddled!Aaron and I felt simply JUBILANT walking out of the hospital this afternoon.And Xander and Eldoie were so happy when Dexter got home that they littlerally danced and jumped and squealed for joy.
Families CAN be together forever. And it's so wonderful that we're together NOW, too!
