From Friday 3 am to Sunday morning sometime around 7 am Beach had stayed draped like heavy old curtains across the upstairs sofa. She stirred only to pee, which wasn’t nearly often enough. She let us read to her and play kid-movies one after the next and she slept a lot. But this morning she finally peeled herself off the sofa wandered outside to the backfield and stood on her stump- just to see if the world was still there, she said. And was it, I asked her. She said it was but it was bigger than was before….
So being a little stir-crazy from 2 days of nursing a sick kid I went out to see for myself.
