a distracting happiness: baby is turning up the cute to get attention while i write for 5 hours running today! and she's very cute. she's also eating my books on racism. that is a great way to get rid of it entirely, don't you think? but i don't know why she also wants to eat the ancient greek philosphers, too.

good luck, good healing, enjoy all the one on one with the boy as the 2 of you stare at 4 white hospital room walls. been there!

Oh goodness. How your son recovers very quickly. Make sure to spoil him with lots of ice cream. Not much to look at on my blog, It's been a busy two weeks but all the people in my blog line have been crafting up a storm. Might visit them if you run out of things to do. Hugs to you.
