One. Last. Night…

We hope. Spirits lifted by some good friends and family who made the trek from the motherland… Lots of distractions for the “inmate”, and hopes of a (mostly) restful nights sleep.

It can be tough to get out of a reflection….  The patient is just out of view, holding everyones attention.

In short she’s doing better.  Nothing has quite been as I imagined it, and that’s a good thing.  The staff here are truly wonderful.  They have taken wonderful care of our little girl, and of us.  It feels more like we are receiving care as a family.  It was not entirely unexpected.  Many folks have told us their stories.  Laura (from edit1media) told me a little about her perspective, a few months ago, and as we have been updating Facebook and Twitter, there have been many others.

Personal Day.

Filed under: Personal — Tags: , , , — photobby @ 1:00 pm

I’ve been pretty unplugged today.  Although I’m pushing plenty of content to Facebook.  And it has done my heart good to see all the well wishes, kind words and prayers that folks have left.   Thank you.  It’s probably a good thing, but apparently their network doesn’t allow hitting remote e-mail servers…

Our big girl is currently “being re-configured” at Children’s Hospital.  Nothing earth shattering.   In fact when it’s all done, all she will have to show for it will be a couple of little scars.   Frankly so far, it’s been harder on Mommy and myself.   She’s in for a 3 day stay (possibly).  So I should have some time to catch up on my blogging while she rests, and it’s therapeutic.   So I’m looking forward to being able to.  Expect more.  But don’t hold your breath.  We have that covered..

It’s been a blur.

The summer.  Has been a blur.  I jumped into the blog this afternoon and was flabbergasted, that it’s been almost a month.  The “short hiatus” I had given myself had grown…  And Internet, I am sorry.  It will get better.  It must.  For I have missed you.  There is something cathartic about blogging.  And shortly I will need this.

The following frames are from our family trip to the fair this summer.  Her hair is a bit shorter now.  Swim lessons didn’t do it any favors.  And our lives will be on pins and needles a bit next week as well.  We are hoping that some of her long term health issues will be resolved at the end, but any time a parent hears “hospital stay” their nails get short and their blood pressure goes up.  As if raising girls doesn’t give me enough gray hair.

If we are friends on Facebook, I’ll be updating there…  And probably blogging for therapy here…
