We had an early start to our morning. First, we dropped Connor off at his school for honor choir at 7:40. Then, with the help of our friend Denise, we dropped off our vehicle for yet another round of diagnostics. It's been doing some strange shuddering, particularly on cold, damp days. Even with a transplant seeming more and more like a long shot, we've been pretty religious about keeping the car in decent condition; we never know when we might get THE call in the middle of the night.
Other than a tiny hint of nausea when she first awakened, Patty hasn't had any real negative symptoms this morning. I snapped this photo as she was pulling ingredients together for a dinner of roasted chicken, stuffing and potatoes. Whenever Patty can muster the energy to plan and prepare a meal for the kids, she seems to approach the task with real enthusiasm. As she describes it, it's an opportunity to feel that she's really being a Mom.
Well, I need to start into some work, so I'll sign off for now.
