I was gonna post sooner today but I spent most of the day on the couch in agony. I had some of the worst cramps I’ve had since… well, childbirth. It’s funny how after you’ve had a baby you can FEEL the contraction of the same muscles used during child birth. They are used for the same reason, only to push something slightly less pleasant out. Ouch. I was about to dig up the Vicodin but I have to pick up Ben from work since we are sharing one car right now and God knows that I am bad enough driver WITHOUT the happy pills. So I just sucked it up and slept off as much of it as I could.
Okay, assuming I haven’t lost most of you due to the first paragraph… I finally got a call form Cassidy this morning at about 8:00AM. I knew as soon as the phone rang it was her. I could hear it in the ring. She seems to be doing okay. She was on her way to bible school. Her other loose tooth is not close to falling out yet. She’s eating a lot.
She seemed really quiet. Ben said she didn’t sound like her normal playful self but I think it might have been because she was calling as Mary was loading another kid in the car and she was distracted and wanted to gab with Madison. But she’s okay. She’s okay. I keep telling myself that. I can’t explain how much of a relief it was to hear her voice and tell her I :heart: her and miss her.
