It’s been a long couple of weeks, but I have to say Elijah, Ava & I are really blessed to have Craig. He works two jobs and still plays with Elijah, spends time with me, helps with the dishes, listens to me when I need to talk, gives me time to make coffee in the morning, adapts to pretty much anything, helps make it possible for me to still get out & do ministry, and still makes us laugh.
He even takes his turn getting up with Ava at night. Part of her syndrome includes a diminished need for sleep (which is a terrible idea, by the way!), so we often have to take turns with her night shifts, which I now call Late Night Party with Ava (~10pm – midnight) and Why’s Everyone Still Sleeping? (~4-5am). Even though he is working a lot, Craig still handles some of Ava’s awake times. A lot of them, actually.
Craig & I are both doing plenty of grieving right now, but if I have to walk this road I am really glad I get to do it with him.
