COUNTING DOWN...

Sorry I've been lazy in my updates...I guess you can consider NO news GOOD news. Ben is over the acute phase of his illness and now weaning from the vent. He's done progressively well that I anticipate a Monday departure. It's all up to him. I continue to give him all the cheerleading he needs to encourage him down that path.
Along with the encouragement comes LOTS of snuggles and LOTS of kisses. A few bribes here and there don't hurt either. I promised him a trip to see the fishies in Boston if he gets better in the next couple of days. His eyes got nice and big, he seemed to like that idea. Nothing like a good field trip to cure you. I hope to take a few of those this week with the kids since it's their school vacation.

Becky, it was great to see you today. I hope I didn't intrude. I felt like you shouldn't be sitting alone and besides it was good for me to feel close to you. Ben's looking much better and of course the hair cut makes him even more handsome.

Glad he is doing better. I've missed your updates and was concerned. Hope Monday is the day to head for home.
