Life and death
I was happy that I could help with my granddaughters and their cousins. They stayed home all week. My son and his sil would come home in the late evening . Their neighbor and my husband gave me a little breaks. It is very sad.
Also this week we had a scare. Blood tests for the new baby showed high levels for Trisomy 18 and Down Syndrome. They had to see a specialist . They did an ultra sound and it came out okay. Then they did amnio and we waited. They had a 50/50 chance of Trisomy 18. It would be a fatal condition. The nurse called me yesterday with good news. The baby is okay. She had been so nice to call me and explain. My son and his girlfriend were overwhelmed and didn't understand. So I know now that it is a baby girl. They have named her Jubilee. Now we have to wait til August to meet her.
While we mourn the loss of a special person, we celebrate a new life in the near future.
These beautiful daffies have been growing since December. They didn't get very tall but what a blessing that they bloomed yesterday.
