I really can't believe that it has been a week already since the surgery. The last week has been a whirlwind! I hope that each day continues to get a little easier and also really hoping that our first post op check up on Monday goes well.
I am so thrilled to have Zander here with us. It brightens my day just to hear his little laugh. He has been really good about not crawling on me and it has been really cute because he keeps coming over to me to cuddle and give me kisses. It is really hard for me to resist my urge to want to pick him up and play with him. Thankfully my dad and Austin have been keeping him very busy so I don't think he seems to mind. He also spent some of the day today walking around the city with Austin. He is a lot like his dad in that way, that he always wants to be out and about. Well I guess like both of us:)
We were able to move into a bigger hotel suite yesterday at the Residence Inn Mariot right downtown before my dad and Zander arrived and we will be staying here for the next week. We have a great view of city hall and downtown. Next week we will be moving into a one bedroom condo right across the street from the famous art museum with the steps that Rocky climbed. There is also a really nice park across the street with swings and slides so we think it will be nice for Zander. Austin went and checked it out today and gave it the thumbs up!
My dad put up a calendar on the blog last night with the dates that people are signed up to come so far. It is just a draft at this point because we still don't have certain weeks completely covered, but for those of you that were expressing interest in coming to visit we just thought we would share it. Also, Austin has not decided for sure what weeks he will be here. It is dependent on what is happening at his work, and obviously how things are going here. I guess we will know a little more after Monday's checkup and after Tuesday when Austin goes back to work. If you are interested in coming out for a visit, please send my dad an e-mail email@example.com and he will add you in.
I am not looking forward to seeing Austin leave on Monday; however I am thankful for all of you that have volunteered your time to come and stay so that he is able to go home and work a little bit. Again, this would not have worked without the help of our family and friends!!
