To my kiddos,
I know you have to put up with situations most kids never see; like their mommy having a coughing fit and almost passing out at your peditrition office.
Did you panic? No, Lenna told them mommy had Lupus and a cold and was calm and collected as I was wheeled to the ER where I was promptly sent back to a room for a breathing treatment and fluids. All you two asked for was snacks and now you are patiently waiting for Daddy to come and get you. Jude watching Cars while Lenna is on her tablet.
I know this isn’t what you wanted to do after your dental appointments today but you never complain. You two just go with the flow and are grateful for crackers and peanut butter.
I wish you didn’t have to see your mommy so sick. I wish you never had to spend hours in an ER. I wish you didn’t know auto immune diseases by heart to tell a doctor that mommy has. I wish you didn’t know to tell them mommy had bad veins and low blood pressure. I’m glad you think watching me get an IV by ultra sound is so cool. I love that you think this is a fun adventure.
I am so proud of you. So thankful for you. So amazed by you both. So lucky to be your mom.
So, thank you for being the amazing kids you are.
