The process of getting her things from our cars to the room was painless...we just pulled up to our designated spot, were asked "what room #" and tons of people converged on our vehicles, pulling items out, and all managed to get to her room no problem! (so much easier then when we moved her sister in 5 years ago!)
Then the fun began...where to place the furniture pieces that made the most sense, most room, and were the most convenient?!!! (we cheated and looked at a couple other rooms that had not yet been moved into) Once the furniture was in place,
They are both settling in. The heartbreaking moment for this mom came when we were leaving Birmingham this morning (we had stayed there last evening after driving from Texas)...I had texted the "baby" to ask how she was (the first night the girls next door were SUPER LOUD)...the text I got back...I don't feel good, upset stomach, congested, feel miserable. This mom felt totally helpless. She had been complaining of her ears for a couple days. So, I told her she needed to go to the clinic. To which I got the "I don't want to" (cue tears and sniffles). To which mom had to suck it up and say, "GO!"
Her roommate was a doll and walked with her (she'd already been there during camp this summer). The doctor was super sweet. As most of you know she suffers from migraines, and while she didn't really have a bad headache, he felt the congestion was from a migraine...they had storms last night (her biggest trigger). He gave her instructions to take her usual meds and if not better make an appointment to see him Monday. She called soooo relieved. You see, he too suffers from migraines and TOTALLY GOT IT! His exact words to her when he first walked in to see her, "I expected to see at least 3-4 of you today after last nights storms!" This momma loves him already!
This mom is holding up pretty well. Thank God for cell phones and text messages. How did parents do it before???
We will settle into a new routine shortly, and it will all be good.
