Hello all! I hope you’ve had a great week.
We start out with Amelia having her tonsils removed, and it's been a long time coming. She has had bouts of tonsillitis for three years now. Amelia was getting sick every week and it was obvious that the tonsils were in dire need of extrication. She had missed three weeks of school this past year, and that is now the prerequisite for having your tonsils out. As you could see, I was nervous. Amelia has never had surgery. I felt like we were in such good hands at Children's Hospital of Los Angeles, and Dr. Koempel came very highly recommended, but I was still a nervous wreck. Longest 20 minutes of my life! Thank goodness Morgan was there with me. Harry was filming a movie, and Amelia said, “No worries, Dad. You stay, we got this!”
And yes, I did look at the tonsils when they were removed, and they were huge and infected!
Next we are off to Yolanda and David's dinner at Wally's. It was nice of Yolanda to reach out and invite us. Quite a lot has gone on in this group, so people are feeling awkward and unsettled for sure. Eileen is not happy with me, because I don't want to engage in this LVP web conversation, and I know Eileen is upset with me for not backing her up, but at this moment it doesn't feel right. I wasn't at Frida's or LVP’s for dinner, and I am now here with my husband, and frankly I don't want to go there or get into it. But just wait, we will soon…
Thank goodness for the amazing performance from the magnificent Andrea Bocelli. What an amazing profound experience to hear him sing Ave Maria. It was so moving, and his voice is a gift from God. Thank you to David and Yolanda for sharing this very special moment with us.
I love that Portia. What can I say? She's my spirit animal. I also crack up every time I see Kyle, her girls and Mauricio, and their family dynamic, because I can so relate to it! And Bambi the dog stealing the potato off the plate. Comic relief that we all needed!
Loved seeing Kathryn and her sisters. Wow they are so beautiful and seem like such amazing women. Growing up as an only child, I so appreciate seeing the love and bond of sisters, and it's very clear that Kathryn has a deep special relationship with her own sisters. I love that.
I think we are beginning to see some definitive lines being drawn in the sand now, don’t you? Sides are being taken, and oh boy, am I feeling caught between a rock and a hard place…
Until next week.
