Considering a normal family life

This picture shows a scene that would have been difficult to imagine even a week ago. Carolyn, Max, Felix and I are all playing outside. (Max, interestingly, is totally fascinated by his older brother.)

Here, Max is already hooked up to the pump delivering his nightly feeding. However, the pump can be carried in a discreet backpack and operated on battery power, so we're completely mobile.

Carolyn and I are considering the meaning of a normal family life for the first time since she went on bedrest last summer. We're still cautious, but we are considering that the four of us might ... go to a park ... together. I'm still thinking this through.
