This up here is where I've been for the last week.
He's recuperating from surgery (tonsils, adenoids, ears) and it's been slow and painful. Most kids bounce back right away, but not us. He's in that 1% of kids that have a complicated recovery. There is nothing worse than a child in pain that you cannot help. I've been down this road with him before, but it's been years and I forgot how tough it is.
Yesterday he finally started to feel a wee bit better. He slept 12 hours straight with no pain meds, so I think he's finally healing. Now if I could just get him to eat anything, I would stand on my head.
So I haven't been out of the house in a week and I've been diligently pushing pain meds every 4 hours around the clock. The one and only good thing is - while he's been sleeping, I've been scrapbooking a whole lot. Because it keeps me sane and focused and distracted. It's my panacea.
I have some Garden Girl projects that should be up soon at 2Peas and I can't wait to share the new Pink Paislee lines with you. I'm caught up with all of my assignments, so maybe I'll go whip up a few things just for fun. Be back soon!
