[/caption] dear mom, you are wednesday's woman. i get home in the eve after 3 days of double shift and i am beginning to tire when i see all these reminders of your presence and your unending care for my family and me... and I am totally inspired to be that kind of mom. i see flowers on the table that your brought for my procedure, meals in the fridge that you fixed for us, laundry in folded piles on our bed, earrings in a bag with a label saying "couldn't find match", I return to a baby's who heart is content and i know she has been well cared for all day. when i popped in on the middle of the day in between meetings and saw you sitting on the sofa with her, her feet crossed at the ankle and her weight leaning against yours as you guys read a book together, my heart glowed, what a beautiful picture. how special to know you are both so lucky to get to know each other more and more. thank you mom, truly your ceaseless and stubborn care for us is the most fantastic model i could ask for of how to learn parenting.

[/caption] so, the medical update is, well, a bit less than of an update at this point. all went well, i felt peace even. i was groggy so the report is according to Stephen and the sheet of paper the doctor gave me that essentially finds that lots of repair from surgery looks good but there is one area of inflammation and concern. they took biopsies of that area and 10 days from the colo i should hear what they find and then what they are recommending for treatment. i remain hopeful it will be minimal maintenance, something i can do better on through my diet. and since i just finished a delish Daddy's Burger and a Highland Gaelic Ale, i am well on my way to eating well. hee hee.
