Life is Full and Busy!

Life has been so busy lately it's not even funny. The month of November I am working the night shift in the ER which means I have to be at work at 6:55pm and get off at 7am. One of the major problems with this is that Jonathan doesn't get home from work until 6 or a little after. This leaves just enough time to eat dinner together and me to leave for work. Bummer. On Thursday Jonathan had 2 wisdom teeth removed and had off work on Friday. My mom and grandma came to visit on Saturday and stayed the night, they left this morning. It was nice to spend time with them. The last time I saw my mom she was still in the hospital about to be discharged. It was so nice to spend time with her like we used to. Shopping, cooking, talking, planning. I shared with her something that Jonathan are excited about but don't want to share with everyone yet. It's so great to be able to tell her secrets again, listen to her talk, and just know she is ok. One of the hardest parts of her being in the hospital and on the ventilator was that she couldn't talk. When she was on the ventilator it was almost like she wasn't even there. I could see her, but she couldn't talk, couldn't smile, couldn't laugh, couldn't acknowledge that we were there or that we had just told her we love her. Today I got to hug her, make her laugh, have real converstaions, and enjoy being with my mom. She is truly an amazing women. Life this week is going to be just as busy as last week.
