3 more sleeps

Demeter's white blood cell count is normal, so it looks like surgery is a go (I did leave a message with the nurse about Demeter's intermittently runny nose, but it's been like that since the beginning of January, so I don't think it'll change anytime soon.) Suddenly, I'm really scared.

Now all we have to do is clean the house (my dad is coming up to help with Artemis) and get ourselves ready - I don't think we'll ever be ready, though...

While I'm writing this Demeter is "talking" to Artemis, all sorts of coos and chuckles; Artemis never made that many sounds like this when she was Demeter's age - since she talks non-stop now I'm afraid I'll have two constant monologues going on around me from here on out!

How about three monologues (either Jasper or Chris). We know you are and rightly so, you gave Demeter life-the connection will always be there no matter your child's age. If it is of any support we are scared also, but we are more scared if Demeter doesn't have this procedure done. Just know we love you and it is because of you that Demeter has come this far and it is becasue of you and Chris working tomgether that she will have a long and healthy life, along with her precocious little sister.

Maybe you could look on Demeter for the off button which your father and I searched for on you, in vain, to turn off your constant, cooing, chuckling, babbling!
