Tonight is the last night for a long time that I will be able to crawl into my son’s bed and cuddle him before he sleeps. My reconstruction surgery is Friday morning and it will be a long time before I can get in and out of his little bed. I stayed a little extra tonight. As I was leaving, this is what he said.
Oliver: Mommy, I need to tell you something.
Me: What do you need to tell me?
Oliver: Mommy, I love you.
Me: I love you, too.
Oliver: Mommy, you make me happy.
Me: You make me happy, too.
My heart has melted. I think we will be ok.
