Lindsay here. I'm back in Marquette and happy to be here. I really missed Willow when I was gone. I had a good couple days back home though. I went to a 4-hour training session for work on Thursday. It was really important for me to attend it, because the 3-year recertification cycle for my PHR certification is up soon, and I'm really close to getting enough credits to recertify. This training got me 4 credit hours; now I just need 1 more credit by August. Then I went in to work on Friday. That was sort of surreal. Some crazy stuff is going down at work right now too, but I have to make myself remember that none of it is my problem right now. I can't let it stress me out because I have to focus on myself and Willow getting better.
I caught a ride down this morning with a group of 10 friends (in two cars). They were coming down to Marquette to go on a hike to some ice cave. After they get back we're all going out to dinner. As soon as I got here and we had lunch, Josh and I went to see Willow. She's having another good day. They've upped her feedings again to once every three hours. The bad news of the day is that, because I have cold sores right now, I can't hold or touch Willow, even with gloves! So, there'll be no kangarooing for the next few days until they heal up. My mom is coming down tomorrow for a few days, so at least someone can touch Willow, but not me. Those who know me well know that cold sores have been the scourge of my life since I got my first one in high school. This is just one more reason why I hate them. Well, I'll just have to live with it, because obviously I don't want to jeopardize Willow's health in any way.
That's pretty much all the news for today. Adios!
Bye bye to Tat
