What is Normal?

I've been completely sleep deprived trying to help Sport get things together for his Eagle project that is scheduled for Saturday. I started another round of antibiotics for the pneumonia and Curly and Baby Doll had their last day of school. I was so proud of both of them for earning their Soaring Leader Awards. Baby Doll worked especially hard on hers. She was also awarded one of only 2  Citizenship Awards in her class.

Curly played (and lost!) his last regular league baseball game tonight although there are still promises of a tournament to come the first week in July.

My poor sweetie got the most devastating news of all.  If you remember, he has been battling an infection too, this one in his toe. After that first awful trip to the ER where he received IV antibiotics and several subsequent doctor visits and prescriptions, we were told yesterday that the infection has now invaded two of the bones of his toe, and the only real option is amputation. Thankfully, it is his 2nd toe, not the big one, so it shouldn't affect his balance or ability to walk. He will have to take about a week off and then hopefully things will get back to normal.

Honestly, I'm not sure what "normal" really means anymore.

According to Google Dictionary, the word "Normal" means: conforming to a standard; usual, typical, or expected. Does that help?

I feel sad to hear about your husband’s toe and your pneumonia. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. I think that you two need to slow down just a tad. You do have a very busy life but maybe some good rest is in order.
Sending loving thoughts, prayers and hugs!
