I really enjoyed their visit and appreciate them taking care of Teya and me. It is nice to not have to worry about taking care of the house and Teya the day of my surgery as well as the days after. Less stress means quicker recovery. It is wonderful to have someone really take care of you for a few days. As women we feel guilty asking for help, even for the little things, like making tea, meals & cleaning. It is silly really, but that is how we are. My mom made sure I took it easy by always asking me what I needed and if I was doing something, she would shoo me away and tell me to go sit down and relax, which is what I needed for a couple of days.
Since my surgery wasn't as invasive as it could have been, I was able to truly enjoy their visit the entire time they were here and of course, Teya had a great time. She got some grandparent spoiling and enjoyed their visit. When it was time for them to leave, it was too soon. It was hard watching them go. We are already looking forward to our trip to Michigan in August.
Here a a few pictures from their visit:
