Easter Sunday

Yesterday, Melanie and mom spent ALL day at the hospital. They were there from about 10:30 to 5:30! It was a long day for them. Melanie's blood was low, so she had to receive two units of blood. This always takes time. She is still in a lot of pain from the hematoma that is compressing her nerve. It is frustrating for her, because she would probably be feeling really good otherwise!

Easter morning, the crew headed to Pleasant Grove to spend the day with us. Melanie, my mom, and Kaden will stay the week. Melanie gets to be a mom for the entire week! Yeah for spring break!

This is how Melanie gets around these days. It is painful and hard to walk. My dad was helping her a ton. We were worried about her staying here, because of our stairs. She was able to make it down them with help from Steve, so hopefully it will work alright.

Melanie's niece and nephews were excited to have her come. She played Easter bunny, and brought them each a little gift.

They all posed for a picture with their new items. They are lucky to have such a thoughtful aunt!

After dinner, we had an Easter egg hunt.

Melanie was able to hobble out to the deck to see all the action.

The egg hunt was a success! Thank you, aunt Melanie, for bringing some yummy filled eggs for the hunt.

Tomorrow morning, Melanie will call and see if she needs to go into the clinic or not. Right now, she just needs to give the bruise time to heal. Hopefully she can get some relief and be pain free soon. We will have a great week and keep you all posted on our adventures!

I'm so happy you get to be with Kaden for the week Melanie. I'm sure it makes everything a little more bearable. Keep healing!
