Good Morning Prayer Warriors,
It is always an adventure when I show up. I visualize everyone gathering around the computer in the morning, grabbing their popcorn, and anxiously reading the adventures of "Dad's turn". It never fails that everything that can happen does on my shift. Matt has Jesse playing games and eating chicken. Dee has Jesse laughing and watching movies. I have Jesse throwing up and feeling terrible. I am starting to take it personal:)
My adventure starts with entering the room Jess was moved to (207 next to the window). It was very warm and Dee and I repeatedly asked to have the temp adjusted. Dee left to pick up Mckenzie from staying with a friend. It got hotter. It was 82 when the maintenance guy showed up (around 4pm). The actuator in the ac unit was not responding to the computer so they manually opened it. He told me it would be blowing 66 degrees and if it got to cold to let them know. Hello...it got cold and stayed cold. They never came back and still haven't. It's like camping....without the mosquito's.
They are giving Jesse the meds three times a day for the HHV6. One doctor wants to stop the other wants to increase the dose. I wounder if in their little doctors office they role dice to see who gets their way.
Still no word on the results of yesterdays test. Flooding her lungs was weird. I told Jesse they were going to drown her and revive her again. She had a look come over her face that was priceless (back to my old tricks of harassing her). The doctor that was standing there explained the procedure and Jesse gave me a well deserved slap on the back of the head.
Jesse is taking a shower right now so she feels as good as she has felt since I showed up. Maybe she is just getting all cleaned up for the two year old new room mate (Talia) that is soon to arrive this morning.
Jesse cut herself, again, by running herself over pulling Baxter. Blood all over the floor and her foot. I played nurse but I really wanted to play parent and spank. She can't afford infections or blood loss.
There you go. The adventure stops in the middle and the ending isn't clear or the way you would want it to end. This on going journey is like an Indiana Jones movie. Every move causes some terrific adventure around the corner. I just hope she doesn't throw up in the shower and plug the drain so the floor floods and we have to move to another room. Oh...that will never happen:)
Thank you all for your blogs to Jesse. It is my Kryptnite to read what people write. My eyes just can't stay dry when I read the love and support you all share for her. Your words go to the deepest part of my heart and words don't come to me to explain how that touches me.
God bless you all and have a great day
