|B's cool new turtle from Lisa Mc|
I always have such big plans for our weekends, every weekend and this one was the same. I always seem to think that my weekends will be filled with all the useful things that I meant to get done in my week...it never happens, I mean never. Throw B in the hospital on top of that and I'm just plain delusional! You would think after 19 mths that we'd have found some sort of balance in our lives but really there is none, I'm never in the right place at the right time it seems (a common theme throughout this blog). The boys have a rough bedtime, I'm at the hospital. Braeden gets unscheduled blood work, I'm at home...never ceases to amaze me! I look at my friends who have their kids in scheduled activities all weekend and I'm always amazed at how they make it all work!
B had an okay day today, maybe (fingers crossed) mildly better? Dr. Eustace is on for the weekend rotation which is great because she knows B well. She was quite concerned at his lack of energy this morning and lack of overall enthusiasm (keep in mind this is a very social, smiley kid). His head circumference has changed a bit since he was admitted as well and she was concerned about the possibility of there being a Neuro component to all of this. It's not a dramatic enough of a change to order a CT or MRI but combined with the lack of energy she was concerned. I guess issues with the guts can also stem from Neuro issues as well. Enter in two big brothers and B perked right up, laughs, smiles and overall happiness. She was very relieved to see him act more like B.

Tomorrow is another day, another day of my back and forth journeys trying to please all the males in my little family! Hopefully Mike is on the mend and he can come up to be with B soon (he's been fighting a cold and can't come into the hospital since he's not well). I love the fact that we have such stellar technology as well, as we got to Skype Grandma and Pappa the other day from B's room and we Skyped all three of my Sisters in Chilliwack tonight so that B got to have a little 'chat'. It makes the feeling of alone-ness a little less anyhow (those darn mountains).
As much as Michael and I are feeling stressed and strained to the limit there are (as always) so many things to be thankful for.
