My lad had an eardrum replaced this past week. He's had this surgery before but last year, it didn't bother him much at all if any.
It was completely different this year.
Ah my lad struggled. It was hard to see him upset and looking so bleary and knowing that wasn't anything I could do to make it better other than to be a support to him.
But today that changed.
OH MY did it change.
He was talking and laughing and excitedly sharing details of videos with me and plans for his minecraft stuff AND.... We went for a walk!!!
Pointing out flowers that were new. Marsh marigolds, trilliums, and more.
Noting birds.... the mallards, Canada geese, and pretty sure it was a wood duck.
Talking about this that and the other thing. It was great!
BUT ah... my momma's heart is much more happy now that my lad is feeling better.
