Loving Every Minute Of Mom And Mel

We have sure enjoyed having Melanie and mom home! Mel looks really good and feels pretty good too. She tires very easily, but that's to be expected. It has been so nice to sit and talk to her, I've missed her a lot. I went over to my parent's home last night to see Mel and the electricity went out shortly after I got there. We sat around the table laughing and talking by the light of a lantern. Mike and Steph came over with their little girls. Lindsey kept pointing at Mel and saying something in baby talk. Taylie was especially glad to have grandma back. They read stories together and played with the paper dolls. You can tell Taylie has missed her grandma.

Here are some picture from last night.

Kaden and Mel.

Today, Melanie had her first driving experience since November 2009. I asked her if it was like riding a bike, she said it sort of was. She went and picked up Kaden from school and went to the eye doctor. I can't imagine how much she has missed her freedom! We take for granted just being able to hop in the car and go wherever we want, whenever we want. Mel being able to drive on her own is another small victory.

I went over again tonight and we watched a little of the jazz game. Mel had her magnesium pump hooked up to her and it was making her pretty cold. She just snuggled up in her covers and tried to get warm. She was pretty worn out by the time I left.

Mike gave Mel this tile tonight...

It was given to Mike by the father of a 5 year old girl who has been where Mel is. She is from Richmond. Mel was quite touched by it. It will be in her room. Thanks Abbot family!
