Rainy Days are such a gift here in the desert, especially when you are a family in isolation! The monotony of sunny days was broken with perfect timing. It gave me a reason to get Faith out of bed yesterday and over to the window. Her cold and low counts have her confined to her room. Every medical person who enters comes clad in a mask and paper gown to reduce the likelihood of spreading the cold to other patients.
Saturday morning was opening day for Faith's softball team. She is still on the team. Silly? She can't play. She can't even get to the bathroom without some sort of aid. How could she possibly belong on a softball team? But it's not silly and it's no mistake. Her team, made up of girls she's been longtime friends with and girls she has never met, wrote her number #4 on their arms. They pinned gold ribbons to their shirts and they posed with a poster- sized picture of Faith Saturday morning, their first game. Hopefully, soon, they will meet the girl in person who would have been one of their pitchers.
I took too long to post this blog. I am not going to change it or update it except to say that since Saturday, our daughter has returned home...again. I wonder what these homecomings mean to her? They are my sun and moon. The highlight of my week? Depends on the week, I guess. This rainy week it was. Except for Wednesday. And that, my friends, is another chapter ;)
