A little cuddle time with Basil :)


Last night I got away. In NC I would stay with Nikki on Saturday nights and it was such a good break away. It was usually hard, I would call the hospital a lot checking on Cale and I thought about him constantly, but it was always great to have girl time with Nikki :) Well, the family that is keeping Basil for me, just happens to be a family with 3 girls! That's automatically fun! heehee! One of the best parts of the night was getting to cuddle with Basil so much! I really miss him. It's such a crazy great blessing that he gets to stay so close to us! He's so stinkin' sweet!

This morning, I was wondering how Cale was doing. I called and asked if I could talk to him, just so I could let him know that I love him and would be back soon. Well, when the nurse said he was on the phone, I said "hi!" and...Cale said hi back!!!! Again, it's still with his breath, but I got to hear him say "I love you" and everything I was saying he answered back! I'm with him all the time, and I've heard him say all those things, but it was such a special moment to talk to him on the phone! If it was this great with just breath, I can't imagine what it'll be like when I can hear his voice!

I stayed away for a good part of the afternoon. By the time I left, I had to keep reminding my foot that we weren't at a race track...I couldn't wait to get back to Cale. When I walked in his room, he had the biggest smile and was waving his arms. When I got closer he reached out for me and hugged me so tight! After that he wouldn't let me go! I love him so much.

Yesterday afternoon before I left, I was given two free tickets to a concert for tonight. Kristen and I went and had a fun time. Neither of us knew the band real well or that many of their songs, but we stayed for a while. After doing our bobbin' and woohooing, we decided we had gotten our fill and headed out early. Now it's time for some sleep :)
