Our days are filled with Joshua again and I am grateful that my ‘other life’ is being cared for… our 3 youngest at home with Mr D and Miss L and all the animals. Golly I owe them big time when they have kids! I just know Children #’s 3 & 4 will be ranting about Nintendo 3Ds and costumes for Friday night’s Variety Club Bowling night. Over and over and over and over. You have no idea how many times a day some words are repeated by these two.
And my lovely little shop is being well cared for by Kira. Hey… did you know the new Prima flowers are in? She’s been a busy lady!
Today Josh had his 2 lines removed, so his hands are free now. He is only on a couple of painkillers and they are keeping him in check. No groggy medications to make him feel sick or mess with his diabetes anymore either. He is happy, smiling and watching tv silently. The only time he cries is when we move him a little (for a change or injection) and then it’s short lived and he’s happy again. You have no idea how relieved this makes us. We have vivid memories of last year… hour after hour of intense pain, day after day, for months. Breathing difficulties, agonising daily physiotherapy, temperature problems, toileting issues… It was a nightmare to watch him suffer so, and to be able to do very little to ease it.
