No Dust Bunnies Here!
I mentioned in my last post that it was a little scary to bring Cami home from the hospital where it is sterile, controlled, and they monitor her every move. Well my amazing sister, the Woods (her in-laws) and some other friends just took care of that for me. They brought a team in here and scrubbed Cami's walls, wiped down every DVD, disinfected every toy, washed every rug, towel and blanket. They Lysoled every inch of my house, vacuumed, dusted, and deep cleaned. They were here for hours. All without me asking or even knowing.
When we carried Cami in, I was brought to tears by the amount of work that had gone into our home. What a gift... what a PERFECT gift! I don't even know what to say. I wish you could smell it here. It just screams CLEAN! They took such a huge burden off our shoulders tonight. Instead of scrubbing, washing and cloroxing I was able to take time and help Cami learn to swallow pills, give Caden (who I've missed terribly) a bath, eat dinner, and visit with those that came to visit.
To top it all off Pats car got a flat while parked at the hospital and our air conditioning stopped working. Clark (our Brother-in-law) has been here for 2 days trying to get it working. My Dad slipped out the door tonight without me noticing and came back with a gigantic portable air conditioner to keep us comfortable until ours gets fixed. Clark and Lenna went to pick up Pats car without a second thought, we have had 3 meals brought to us already and my Mom scheduled the next 10 days for dinners, all our laundry has been done, I have had grocery's and baskets of cleaning supplies brought over, we have been sent gorgeous flowers (which weren't allowed in Cami's room, but we sure are enjoying now -thanks!). Caden has been completely taken care of and he even go to go to the zoo one day (thanks Tony and Nat). People have just done SO SO much! I could go on and on. So many people have reached out and made such a huge difference in these miserable last few days. Oh man, I am just so grateful for our extraordinary friends and family.
We love you all to the moon and back!
I am so glad Jessie snapped some pictures of these awesome people cleaning.
Thanks again for organizing this, you are the BEST!
These guys are serious, they took every toy out of the playroom and disinfected it..WOW!
