Another month, another currently!
Listening: What we thought was going to be overnight for observation is going to be a long, slow recovery. I mentioned in my last post that my 19-month old has pneumonia and was admitted to the hospital. He is getting better, but it has been a lot of ups and downs. He was almost admitted to the PICU Saturday evening. I am staying with him in the hospital and am almost getting used to all the noises.
Loving: My little guy has been sleeping a lot, so I have spent a lot of time feeling alone in the hospital room watching my sick boy. Most of our family and many of our friends live far away, so we have been staying connected. We are posting on Facebook, e-mail, and the family blog. This afternoon we talked via Facetime to Ireland, Houston, Montana, and home with Daddy. We also watched streaming cartoons on the iPad to pass the time. Technology is amazing!
Thinking: Even though it has been a pretty crummy few days, I am thinking about the positives. My fantastic husband took our daughter to Easter Sunrise Mass at the beach this morning and sent on beautiful pictures.
A good friend invited our daughter to join them for their family egg hunt and dinner. The Irishman and I were able to relax with this little fella.
We even got him to sit up and smile during a game of throw-the-empty-eggs-out-of-the-crib-and-watch-Mommy-and-Daddy-chase-them-around-the-room.
I keep looking at pictures to make myself think of the positives!
Wanting: I would love to do something completely frivolous for myself right now. I am not even sure what – just something a little selfish and unnecessary just to do it. (This from the woman who has not had a pedicure in years…)
Advice: My blogging/TpT advise would be to find your community. My husband teases me about this. He will ask, “Is this a real friend or a pretend computer friend?” This was big for me. I have found a group of bloggers I enjoy reading with similar interests. We have helped out in each other’s giveaways and are getting to “know” each other.
Have a great week!
