If we ever wondered if Chewie bonded.....

we don't have to worry anymore. It's been a crazy week or so. Today is day 6 of work for me--which wouldn't be so bad except it's flipflopping the schedule--day shift and pm shift. In other words less sleep then usual. To add to that, sickness throughout the house (except me--I CAN'T get sick) and running running running everywhere. Plus, Ted's mom is quite sick. If it isn't one thing......
anyways, my mom came to take care of the boys yesterday so I could go to class/work. Rauan missed his last couple of days of school d/t being sick. He's sorta back to normal---so he went home with Grandma--so we can do the zoo trip and Chewie kindergarten welcome tomorrow--and I can work tonight. So, last night, Chewie is feeling a bit better--and he's wandering around the house like he doesn't know where to sleep. Finally went to bed. I get up this am--get some coffee into me (very important!) and Chewie is nowhere to be found. Usually he is watching Diego--very important to him! Found him in his bedroom just laying on his bed staring. Won't tell me what's wrong, doesn't want me touching him----just acting wierd. Finally ask him, what's wrong do you miss Rauan? He bursts into tears---sobbing huge can't catch his breath tears. So, we called Rauan at Grandma's and Rauan talked to him. Chewie crying and Rauan telling him that he'll be home tomorrow. Now, after about an hour after he talked to Rauan, Chewie is calmed down. I think too many "friends" just disappeared at the orphanage and between the craziness of late and not feeling good, Chewie thought that happened again. Tomorrow when we pick up Rauan will hopefully reassure him.

Poor little guy. OMG that just broke my heart. From the moment I met him I knew he was a sensitive soul. He took care of those around him. I can not even start to imagine what those little hearts have endured.
I hope he's feeling better.

Now, that just about breaks my heart! I don't think I've thought about that, "friends disappearing" aspect for a while...tell him we love him and will see him soon! Toby can't wait :)

POOR BABY!!!! Made me sad just reading it. I wondered while J. was away at camp if E. would think he'd left. I think she was too young to verbalize it if she did. Give Chewie a hug from me -- just because I'd love to be able to do that!!
