Tonight we will host a Shalom Zachar (welcoming party) for our grandson here in NY.  We still have no details on a bris or a name until the bris.

Shira arrived yesterday and we will bake and play together today.  Rea and Shuie will move in later this afternoon for Shabbos and to be here for the celebration.

I am baking again this morning but “trying” to keep my excitement and projects down to a dull roar.  I am sleeping well after all of the excitement and taking less medication.  I have to remind myself that I can’t quite do that which I am used to doing.  Tough Challenge,

The appointment with the Orthopedic Surgeon is scheduled at the same time as the baby’s bris so I need to change that today.  I am so grateful that all the baby festivities will be complete by the time I head for surgery.  This has been a great week for me.  I would also like to go home for the labor day weekend to the Cape but we’ll see how much I can really get away with.

For today, I am grateful Shira is here, the Mom and Baby are fine, and I was able to experience the joy of these life experiences in fairly good shape.  I am one very fortunate person.
