I really miss Caleb. The first few days were filled with so much “excitement” that there was too much going on for me to dwell on it. Now that we are more or less just sitting here, I have a lot more time to think about how much I really do miss him. I love talking to him on the phone and have enjoyed his visits, but it’s not the same. I know he’s been well taken care of by my sister and my mother-in-law, but I wish I was there to tuck him in at night and to make his dinner. I know that when I do get home, things will still be very different because I will be confined to my bed, but at least we can cuddle together and watch cartoons.
I love you, Caleb-Boy. I enjoy your phone hugs, but I would rather have a real one! I’ll see you soon!
