Lots to celebrate this long weekend – the sunshine, my entire family is together in Vancouver, it’s almost three months post-transplant and Addison’s first weekend away from home (the hospital stay doesn’t count). We aren’t going too far…at least not yet. A cottage at Cultus Lake is our destination for the next two nights.
We started the festivities off a little early with a big backyard barbecue. It was a bit of a thank-you dinner, a small gesture of appreciation for all the support – home-cooked meals, early and late hours at the hospital, prayers and good thoughts, babysitting…I could go on. Aaron and I have had a fancy bottle of champagne for at least a few years, waiting for the right occasion. The time seemed right to pop the cork.
Have a great long weekend!
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
