Thursday was a good day. Baby Gannon and Kalissa came home. Can you even see Gannon in there?
They had to pick up Carver so I said come for supper. Kramer is suppose to eat lots of protein for healing..and I figured Kalissa did to so I broke out the steaks.
Carver was excellent with Gannon and even willing to take some pictures so we snapped a few.
The lighting wasn’t the best but we’ll take what we can get. Here’s the family.
Kalissa and Craig have already gotten over the pregnancy and delivery as they said, “Next time when we have a baby….”. I had five kids and I don’t think I ever said that four days after labor!
Here’s the boys….and me.
Grandpa was even feeling up for holding little Gannon.
On the Kramer front, he’s doing better every day. He’s now done with one of his medications….still trying to manage some of the pain as he is weaning himself off of the pain pills.
He’s a disappointed that he can’t do more yet. He gets tired easily. When doctors said that it would be a full 5-6 weeks before he was able to think about going back to work, Kramer thought he’d be back in a few weeks. He figured the doctors were overcautious. He was hoping he’d be able to be doing some of the paperwork or simple non labor intensive tasks at the farm. He’s seeing that he won’t be and that was a little sad for him.
I’ve been doing childcare while he’s been home and so far, the kids aren’t driving him crazy and he’s not driving us crazy so, we’re all happy with that.
We go back to the doctor on March 8th. We’ll learn more about chemo and radiation then. We’ll keep you up date….for now we’re on slow and steady healing.
As for me…I’m doing good. Busy. I haven’t touched a sewing machine but I’m okay. Family has kept me busy. I’m thinking that maybe this weekend I might get reunited with the machine.
For now, family first!!
Thanks so much for all of the thoughts and prayers that have been sent our way. We appreciate it so much.
