Surgery went well and I am recovering.
Closure is cathartic.
One door has closed. Perhaps, soon, another will open.
In other, completely unrelated news, these two boys are extremely happy. Wanna know why?
Because Aidan is getting a new cousin, and Alan is getting a SISTER! Soon, the boys will have their OWN pretty girl to boss them around :). Congrats to my sister-in-law and brother-in-law on their baby girl, due in early December!
