Friday newsday

I had a long chat with Roshni last night, she says that if I continue to improve as I have been, I could be home mid next week.

I am trying not to get too excited, because anything could happen between now and then, but I am still really thrilled.

And a little bit scared.

A lot has happened since I was last at home, I was still pregnant, still hopeful. I had been on bedrest for ages, but I hadn’t been sick. Now I feel like a different person. Mothering Inigo has made me a different person, and now mothering Archie and Aubrey has changed me again.

It will take a long time to adjust to this new normal.

  1. Sending you big hugs Lara. Fingers crossed you will home, sweet home, next week 🙂

    Just thinking about what you said about feeling different and wanted to share these words:

    The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.

  2. Lara thank you for sharing so much of your journey with us. You have had such an incredibly crappy time and to see your sense of humour and your honesty is so inspirational. You are amazing. Annie


  3. Ditto to what Alison said :0)
    The quote by Elisabeth Kubler Ross is the utter truth . . . . . .
    I am there with you hoping that you will be home next week.
    Adjusting to a new way of being will of course take some time, a song we sing at a womenÂ’s circle that I go to, comes to mind, Be gentle with yourself, love yourself, you are a child of the universe, being born each moment
    We do change with each moment we live, nothing is ever constant, you have gone through such a HUGE moment hence there will be a big shift in the way that you be . . . .
