Day 21- Still Here
We were supposed to fly back to New York this morning. We had a 7 AM flight scheduled, but as we were getting ready to head to the airport, Luca started crying in pain, saying his stomach hurt. Like, literally crying. This is totally not normal for him and since he's had a pretty bad cold all week, I started worrying that his appendix would burst or his eardrums would burst or something would burst on the plane and I would be stuck in the air, helpless. My mom tried reassure me that the flight attendants could page a doctor and there would most likely would be one on board. This did NOT make me feel better. I cancelled our flight and took him to the doctor. Luckily, he has an ear infection, but is otherwise fine. (As soon as we got to the doctor's office, he said he felt great.)
So, due to waking up ridiculously early for no apparent reason and spending the rest of the day in a fog, today's pendant is a memory wire bracelet my mom made once upon a time. Luca found and thought it was so beautiful. My mom said he could keep it. He immediately brought it to me, told me it was so beautiful, and said he wanted me to have it. (What a sweet boy!) He put it in my suitcase so I'd remember to take it home. Today, I put it on a chain and am calling it a pendant. It's the best I can do.
