Last night, my parents dropped me and my furry brothers off at Grandma and Papa Smith's. This morning they left early to head to the airport. Mommy is presented at a work conference and Daddy decided to join her. They will be gone until the end of the week. Although my Daddy has spent the occasional night away and Mommy traveled a few years ago, they have only spent a night away from me together a few times in the last year. To have them both gone for almost a week is a new experience for all of us. Tonight Grandma and Papa gave me a bath and a trach change and sent my parents the picture to assure them I was doing just fine! Although I have asked my parents a few times on the phone to come pick me up they know I am having a great time.
