We had a very nice Christmas yesterday. I got out the China and silverwear we got for the wedding. I was determined to make some memories. My son and daughter came, David's brother, mother and close friend were also here. It was the first time I really cooked since all of this happened and the food was great. I pumped David with fluids the night before so I could unhook him from some of the machinery so he could seem more normal. His brother took him in the wheelchair through the front yard so he could come upstairs. David sat at the dinner table with everyone even though he ate like a mouse and sat in the livingroom and opened presents and talked. It seemed like he was up forever, but in reality it was four hours. Everyone could tell he was getting tired so they excused themselves. All in all it was a good day. It's still hard to think that may have been my last Christmas with him and I could tell it was hard on his mom too. We just decided to make the most of the time we have now. We are still praying for the miracle though.
