May Your Memory Never Fade

Hi, I'm Kivrin, more or less. I'm mostly a Hobbit blog these days, and overwhelmed with painful and glorious feelings about the line of Durin, among other things.

I'm Scottish by descent, but live in the US. I live in the midst of the chaos of five wee children with special needs, so if I disappear for weeks at a time, please don't take it personally!

In the dark I hear a call
Calling me there

Well, after a HELL of a few days, my sister now has her baby, and my brother is out of hospital - and I have a brand new Baby Niece! Now, if I can just steal some sleep here or there, I would be totally ecstatic! 

Very Pregnant Sister is headed to one hospital and Teenage Brother is probably being transferred to a specialty hospital an hour in the opposite direction. I was not expecting this.

WOW ok so Very Pregnant Sister seems to be going into labour just as Teenage Brother (with Down Syndrome) is being hauled off to hospital for odd bleeding issues and, you guys, I was going to go to bed at such a decent hour tonight! I guess that’s a great big NOPE!

That is so incredibly sweet. I don’t even know what to say.
