Sleepy time

Its 830 and all three children are in bed. The husband is at another red sox game. I'm going to sneak away the night and go to bed now. I remember when I was punk rock and going to bed before 9 was ridiculous. That's the time I used to get ready to go out!

Ok, maybe I'm not that bad, but I'm being that bad tonight.

Have any of you recently gone through big changes like this?

karl was discharged this morning and he's doing well this day so far with is. He just took a giant nap. Poor kid, all that poking and proding he got.

The hospital was great though. When we finally for admitted, we were given a nice private room. In the bed were a teady near and a hand made quilt that were donated to every sick kid. I said I'd leave it for someone in need buy I was told if I don't take it, they throw it away. How sad! So I gathered the items and took them home.

Anywho. Thanks to you all leaving comments. In the past few posts. It was a scary night for momma for sure. I won't try to blame myself too much. Thatll be easier since Karl didn't get sick at all. Just a long night at the hospital.

Oh. They really need something better to sleep on for the parents. I got a padded bench. They gave me sheets, pillows and blankets. So that was nice at least. They said I could curl up in the crib with Karl of I wanted. Said that's totally allowed. I took the bench.

Thanks again everyone. Your words then and now mean a lot to me! I don't feel quite so bad of myself for letting this happen after reading your words.

23 hour observation.

We are being admitted for at least a 23 hour observation period. The half life of this med is super long and another kid, bigger and older than karl took 8 days to recover. I'm the worst mom.

So far the nurses have been sweet. Looks like I'm looking at 4-6 hours of scary side effects.

How could I be so stupid?

I had the bottles in my overnight bag and I was unpacking them from the trip this weekend. I put one thing away and turn and he has pills in his mouth. I call poison control and the send me immediately to the ER. I think I'm repeating myself. I'm scared.

Do you consider yourself lucky?

I do.

No matter what life has thrown on me, I am able to get through it. Why? Does luck have to do with it? Or is it simply fate?

What do you feel lucky for?

~ my husband
~ my children
~ a roof over our heads
~ food on the table
~ our health. Yes, even my own.

Sometimes you have to think about the basics. So many people don't have these things. And I do. I am lucky beyond words.

What about you?

My car was broken into

I got in my car today and found it in total disarray. My glove box and center console has everything in it taken out and thrown on the seats or the floor.

Nothing was taken. All my electronics and cds were left. I guess they were rifling through it to find fast cash. Not interested in anything else.

Looks like I'm going to have to lock up my car at my own home. That's lame.

Summertime and the livin's easy

It seems to have gone from winter to summer these days in Colorado. Definitely unseasonably warm. But I like it. I love the heat.

A few shoutout...

Good luck today for laurel's growth scan. She has been on hospital bedrest for four weeks now. Today is a big day because if the baby has grown in leaps and bounds, she will be sent home for bedrest there. Its hard to be in the hospital for that long. I'm bringing her lunch today and hope to share good news with her.

And a big congrats to Elana who got a surprise BFP! Her twins get a little sister or brother. Yay for her!

Me? The weight loss is going well. I think I'm a pound or two lost for the week. I'm eating good meals and snacking smart. I wish weight was easy to lose.

I saw my back doctor yesterday and I got a referral to the surgeon. I asked if my back will ever get better and was told my condition is degenerative. So I'm getting an opinion as to when back surgery may be an issue for me. I may not be a surgical candidate yet, but I'm excited to find out where I sit. I want to be fixed so badly. I can't imagine what it would be like to be pain free. What a wonderful concept!

I hope everyone's Friday is simply wonderful and your weekend rocks!
