The girls came home from camp yesterday. After we talked all about how awesome it was and how they couldn't wait to go back next year, I told them about my good news from the spine surgeon. I mentioned it to them separately but the reaction was just the same. They both had such a look of happy relief in their eyes and immediately came over to give me a big hug. When you're all wrapped up in your pain, it's so easy not to see the impact it has on everyone around you. I can't wait to get this negative force out of all our lives.
