Today has been a hard day. We are having a rough time managing her pain, so she goes through phases of intense screaming, anger, and frustration. I think it will take a few days for the pain to subside and for her to get used to the braces and crutches. Hopefully we also have a better handle on her medication dosage so she can be more comfortable.
I had to take Steven Joseph to the doctor this morning, and found he has a double ear infection and a heart murmur. What else can happen this week?
I'll also take this time to thank my in-laws who watched Ellie and Stevie during the surgery yesterday for over 7 hours, and my mom who has come over the past 2 days to help, especially as I took SJ to the pediatrician this morning. Thanks also to the N and the V families for dropping off special treats and gifts. And for all those who've sent their well wishes and prayers, we appreciate it!
I'd like to write a reflection on yesterday's experience. We'll see if I can find a few spare minutes to write that up. But now onto the grilling dinner attempt. If the rain will stay away...
Hopefully it's all a downhill slide from here!
