It’s late at night; 2:22 AM and everything in me wants to write. I sense that I have many things to say, yet as I begin to type, Madelynn is upstairs crying for her mommy to rescue her. She has been waking up frequently since the accident. This is my little girl who has slept through the night since she was three weeks old. There could be a variety of reasons as to why she is waking up; a change in patterns, teething, feeling hungry, or possibly (which I believe) missing her daddy. Her scream beckons me. I will have to save my stories for tomorrow and process what everything means at a future engagement. For now I have an appointment with Miss Maddi; she needs to be comforted and loved.
