The Curl

Be filled with a soft warm glow and keep that inside of you 'til tomorrow. It will help Reu through the surgery to close his former trach stoma and on his vocal chords.

The last few days have been spent keeping Reu away from everywhere, keeping him healthy, safe and warm. Callum has gone to the ski slopes for sledding on President's Day and when I finish trimming his hair, making up for last year's first attempt, Reuben takes the opportunity to have a morning nap. I lie down beside him for a while and we do our double I love you signs and then he speaks the magic words. His fingers take a while to rest, wanting to practice his rhyming words some more, and he sleeps long enough for me to make this image.

Good luck tomorrow. Ruben will be in our thoughts and prayers.
