Getting old...

This is getting old. I was never on bedrest with any of the kids, but I can only imagine... It's weird, cuz I'm not sick, just in excruciating pain. I tried to not take the l o r tab today, and took something else...not a good plan. Jack had his IFSP (parent teacher conference, with his therapists) I feel so dumb, laying on the couch. Whatever.

This is the view I have from my couch, when I sit up far enough to eat. I had to take it wih my camera phone, so it's crappy quality, but you can see how blue the sky is, and the pretty trees!! The dark at the top is the roof of the porch.

My mom has been so great. I know how tired she is, but I just can't function on my own. I can't take care of myself, let alone the kids. Sure Nick and Parker are great, but Emma and Jack need stuff. I can't really pick up Jack, or change his diaper. You see... I can't sit...at ALL. *rolling eyes*

I called my doctors office today, and they said the pain...means it's healing...OH GREAT! I should be better soon!!! *rolling eyes again* Oh and does anyone have any ideas for a sitz bath, that does not include my po o per sitting on the hard tub?? I'm SO not doing it :)

I just keep thinking...this too shall pass...right? I am looking forward to looking back and saying...OH I had that done...IT WAS HORRID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to be able to do things for myself, and my kids for that matter.

What a pretty view! As for the sitz, if they didn't give you a donut to sit on, see if Steve or your mom can get one from the pharmacy, that might help. Or have them hold you up behind your back and thighs so you're just floating... not the best idea, but I can't think, I'm dopey on cold meds at the moment myself.
LOVE the Jack pictures, but don't I always? lol Actually, the profile reminds me a LOT of Julia's. He even has the small chin like hers. I know they don't have the same thing, but maybe it's just one of those side effects of craniofacial disorders?

You can get a blow up donut to sit on at the pharmacy that would take some of the pressure off. Take IB profen to reduce inflamation. After I had my baby and had a you know what from pushing so hard I lived on IB profen for a long time and it helped reduce the swelling.

sorry your tushy is still hurting.

Do the donuts help???

Still trying to think of what you could put your bum in that isn't hard.

Well you could get one of those innertube things blow it up, shove it in the tub and sit/lean on it. Okay I realize that really doesn't help, but I'm trying.

Wow...how do you deal with everything you do? I am always humbled when I read about your going-ons...you're amazing!

Have you tried the donut suggestion yet? I would not suggest the blow up ones (it was a little small for my bum, harder than I wanted, and so didn't do exactly what I needed it to do...) but my sister suggested going and getting a thick foam from the fabric store and cutting out my own "donut" that way I could make it as big as I needed and that worked better.

My heart goes out to you. If you need anything please let me know!
