Wednesday: More dental work today. And here I thought last times was painful… I had to have five teeth drilled on for cavities, so both sides of my mouth were numbed.
Thursday: Even worse pain than yesterday due to dental work keeping my jaw open for so very long. Still can’t eat.
Friday: I took Greg in to the orthopedic doctor and he needs surgery on his arm because it’s not healing. This is big and scary and I nearly fainted when I heard about it. Greg was calm. He is awesome. Please pray for us. He needs lots of healing and I need to stop feeling like I’m going to throw up out of anxiousness.
Also, I had to take David in to have his hand x-rayed to see if it was broken. It was not. That is a blessing. I couldn’t have handled two broken kids. Oh, and then one of my new fillings fell out while I was on the phone trying to get my appointment rescheduled (it never stopped hurting since my appointment) since it was the same time as Greg’s surgery.. Yeah. It’s been a really freaky day.
Saturday: We’re trying to ignore that are bellies are empty for the Day of Atonement. Gifts help! It’s a Nathan Filion themed feast for me!
Monday: At the hospital with Greg. They’ve been very sweet to him this morning. Nurses and staff have made him a goodie bag full of candy & chips & some balloons for his birthday. 🙂
The nurse told us that Greg would sleep most of the day, but would have a perking up around 2pm. Instead, he was pitiful and restlessly in pain all day, slept from 5-6 and then perked up. We fed him birthday cobbler with trick candles at his request. He’s a weird boy.
Tuesday: Greg’s pain levels fell by half from yesterday and the crankies seem to have disappeared, too! He’s lounging with his arm elevated & having a birthday do – over since yesterday was weird. He got his requested McDonald’s for breakfast AND dinner, a proper cake, and again with the trick candles.
Wednesday: We got up to see the eclipse, but were thwarted by cloudiness. 😦 Every freaking time there’s something cool, the clouds come. CLOUDS: we do NOT love you today!!
