The accident happened just as MB was trying to get his new business up and running. And LO just under 9 weeks of age. I was and still am in survival mode although the fog is lifting and the light at the end of the tunnel is getting that bit closer. With three kids to care for as well as the farm we were able to keep an appearance of normality for the little folk with the help of family. LB's school were and still are here to help pick up the pieces. Relaying together to form a meals roster. Each night for a whole month other families within the school community provided us with wonderful dinners. To say this eased the blow and took the pressure off me is an understatement!
Sleep deprivation, stress, worry, anxiety and fear can make you re asses your very existence. This accident has made us take a good look at our life and has given us a chance to realize what is really important to our family. It has binded us together even more. For what seemed like such a long time our days were spent starring at hospital walls trying to keep the kids happy waiting for Dr's, scans and tests. As MB developed Deep Vain Thrombosis in his calf, its made things a little bit tricky. Were taking day by day and as long as we have each other then all will OK...better then OK !!!.
Thank you for sending me your well wishes in my absence it really meant a lot to me and gave me the strength to keep my chin up. Although were facing trying times were also experiencing one of life's greatest joys, getting to know our baby boy. He is our light and joy amongst all of this, as too are the girls. We have been blessed with a calm, content, friendly happy baby boy, and two beautiful little girls. Living day to day with little or no expectations makes way for unexpected moments of bliss, fulfillment and gratefulness. Which I have still managed to capture with the thanks to iphone camera!
