It's been just a little over a year since CT closed it's nursing homes to visitors. Today I was allowed back inside. I was so happy to cross that threshold! With the help of the amazing staff at my mom's place, we've been able to see each other outdoors almost every week. But this is New England and sometimes it's just too cold. In that case, FaceTime has been great but it's no substitute for really being together. Now we can finally sit together indoors again! Cross your fingers and maybe next week they'll bring back hugs.
