I took Spanish in high school and unfortunately was not a very good student. It’s sad, but I remember very little. One thing I do remember is asi asi, which means so so. That was our day…not terrible, not great, but so so.
He is ridiculously cute and I don’t shy away from agreeing with every doctor and nurse and care partner and tech and xray person and volunteer who comes in his room…yes, he is adorable…yes, his smile is killer, yes, his hair is fabulous and yes, he is such a good, good baby. He seriously blows my mind.
There was no puke today…praise…but Amon wasn’t very interested in actually eating since he hasn’t done so in 7 days now. At the end of the day we logged a whopping 4 1/2 oz of pedialyte. Better than nothing though.
We did our usual of taking walks in our wagon and just chilling watching way too much cable TV and I emotionally ate my way through yet another box of sugar babies. What is wrong with me?!?!
I love how artsy the children’s hospital is. There are art displays everywhere in tons of different mediums. I do love walking around and exploring and finding new displays.
Staying in the hospital this long is really difficult. Hats off to the parents who have stayed for far too long…my heart goes completely out to them and their sweet kiddos. I know that sitting on Day #20 I feel very, very down and depleted…I can only imagine how other parents feel.
I miss Josh and Harper and Huddy and Sol terribly. I feel like I am missing out on so much and it just makes me sad. I miss being home…together…all 6 of us. I miss sleeping in a bed. It gets kind of lonely here too. And you’ve heard of the Freshman 15, well I’ve gained the Hospital 15…I miss my zumba class and my crossfit class and running. Why do I emotionally eat? Why!?!?!?!?!?! And who is the genius that invented microwave pop up bowl popcorn? Genius.
But tomorrow we’ll give it another go and eventually we’ll get to walk out of this place. And that is a very big blessing that I recognize and DO NOT…DO NOT take for granted. Things can be sucky sometimes, but blessings are still all around.
Happy Very Late Wednesday Night!
