We have had SG for most of the day. He arrived very early this morning.
Still in his jamas, hungry.
"Don't worry Mum, I can have breakfast at Nanna's."
"Are you going to get dressed?"
"No, I can get dressed at Nanna's. I will get my slippers."
Sitting at the table, eating his cereal.
"Nanna, I really love you!"
"I love you too, SG!"
Later, sitting side by side, Nanna & SG.
"Nanna, are you going to get more stitches?" touching my face.
"No, SG, I have had the stitches out now." (Stitches from biopsy)
"But you will need some more Nan, you have all these cracks. They will need stitches."
Nanna muffles some laughs!
"Nanna, your hands have got old. They used to be new hands, but now they are old- see?"
Nanna looks at SG's new hands, & kisses them. His 'new' little face is such a delight. Kiss his little soft cheek.
His 'new' pale skin. His eager mind, so keen to learn all about everything.
SG had his lunch, Macaroni Cheese- what else? He ate it outside with an audience of Leo & Honey. And Nanna had her lunch beside him. An English Muffin. Nanna find bread upsets her.
Most of his afternoon hours were spent with Gom. His little voice piping away, as he made "Potions, to put you to sleep!"
A few fart jokes were giggled about, out on the balcony, so Nanna couldn't hear.
After all that is such a male thing! What else could a Nanna expect!
SG delightedly leapt up & down the balcony. Nanna wisely stayed inside. Heights scare the sh!t out of me!! I can't bear to watch him standing beside the rail, peering down.
His mother came, bristling with tension from a work meeting. He gave her healing hugs, so glad to see her. He kissed us good bye. Hugged us. Blew us kisses as they drove away.
Calling loudly, "I LOVE you!!"
I have lashed out this evening, & had 2 glasses of wine!
David Gray, My oh my.
