"My Dad Rocks!"

Pretty sure HG picked this outfit out, himself.

Okay, he didn't actually pick out the outfit. It was a gift from an acting student of mine. (Thanks, Andrea! You have an excellent sense of my son's inner life.)

Gimme gimme gimme...

With everything else I've had going on, I haven't seen HG much of late. Last night when I got home I was so damn happy to see him that I didn't even really care that he was cranky or that I was exhausted. He's changing and growing so much.

Today, for the second day in a row, I'm working a 12-hour day. I'll get home around 7:30 this evening. Tomorrow I'll be off work because of the Jewish holiday and I'll tell you what: I'm going to do my best to take advantage and soak him in.

To the Images!

As I mentioned below, my mother is doing much better. But don't take my word for it. See for yourselves.

Before and After

My mom has returned home, released from the hospital this past Friday. She's feeling better and, though she'll have to keep a much closer eye on her health from now on (you hear that, Mom?), it seems as though the worst has passed.  

Thanks a million to everyone who contacted me with your concerns in the wake of my original post. It truly means a great deal. My apologies for the delay in posting an update but I've been busy getting my own life back in order.

Thanks, too, to KG, for assuming the bulk of the baby care duties while I was otherwise occupied.

Mom, I'm so glad you're okay. You have no idea. Now how about you get on with the business of knowing Henry for a very, very long time?

Get Well Soon

My mom had emergency heart surgery yesterday. They did an angioplasty to open a blocked artery. The surgery went very well according to the doctors, but she's still got a ways to go before she's completely out of the woods.

I'm headed to the hospital later tonight to sit with her for a while. I'll have my (internet-accessing) phone with me and wanted to have something of Henry to show her. Obviously he can't understand these kind of things yet, but if he did, maybe he'd say something like this....
