New warm friend

hot water bottle and cover

I’ve slept with a hot water bottle every night since we had to say goodbye to our sweet Abby. Feeling that warmth beside me allows me to trick my brain into falling asleep without my baby. Plus, the heat really helps my lower back pain.

Sadly, my hot water bottle sprung a leak earlier this week. It was old and rubber and had likely never seen such continued use in its life.

We’d previously researched ordering hot water bottle covers with Abby’s photo, but it seems only to be available in the U.K. and shipping would take ages. It would be lovely at some point, but in the meantime we ordered from Amazon.

It is certainly no Abby substitute — she is not replaceable! But as a comfort in her absence… my new warm friend arrived in the mail today, and it is wonderful and toasty and today’s #OneGoodThing!

Day 323 of 366.
