Maggie's oldest brother Eddie came home this weekend. We hadn't seen him since April, so it was good to have him here for a quick visit. No one was happier than Maggie, though.
Maggie is very good at living in the moment. We could all learn something form her ability to do that. She is happy every day, but when her brothers are here, she is over the moon. Everytime Eddie came into the same room as Maggie, she would laugh uproariously as though this was the first time she had seen him in months. When we went out for our 4th of July walk in the park she reached out for Eddie on his bike to make sure he was gonig to join us, which he did.
He went into the basement for about 5 minutes and when he came back upstairs she stopped working on her sentence, reached her hands out for him and laughed. It was a great big WELCOME HOME over and over again.
If both boys come home at once, we may have to sedate her.
