When I sat down at my desk, I laughed when I saw my daily Dilbert calendar.
Then I attacked my massive pile of emails.
Then I pumped.
The picture updates from Saint Renee the Patient helped.
A surprise visit and care package from dear friend, Godmother of Max and baker extraordinaire, Alison also helped.
Then I pumped again.
Alison and I were able to meet our friend Rebecca who doing some clinical work for nursing school for lunch in the cafeteria . Hooray for friends!
The rest of the day was a blur of "welcome backs" and playing catch up. And more pumping. When 4PM rolled around, I dashed home ready for cuddles, kisses and a few dozen verses of "If You're Happy and You Know it".
Before I could blink it was bath time and bedtime.It came way to soon.
I survived. I might just be able to do this after all.
