One Lump or Two?
Definitely two! Ash and I can't seem to pull ourselves off the couch. We are just a couple of lumps. We haven't gotten dressed since Saturday. It is absolutely pathetic! As are we.
I am guessing her little head hurts as bad as mine because she is hitting it over and over again and pulling her own hair. If I didn't know better I would probably behave the same way, and to be completely honest I began hitting my head over and over again just last night as I tried to distract myself from the ache inside it. I am managing to get up just long enough to do what I have to like give meds, change diapers, and care for her ostomy. Other than that we lay around like lumps on the bed or the floor or the couch and half heartedly push toys around in the hours that we are awake. Its been a very long time since I felt this lousy.
We have no fever and for that I am more than thankful. Fever is an automatic hospital admit for Ash to rule out line infection. I really believe we just have a nasty cold that has caused us to run low on energy, cough, sneeze, and bang on our heads. Her ostomy output had been fabulous all week until the past 14 hours. She began dumping around 10:00 last night and it hasn't stopped. She has already put out more in the last 14 than she did in the previous 24. That is a little discouraging to me because I was so thrilled about carrying my low numbers into her appointment tomorrow. This is only causing me to feel more lousy as I wonder what in the world happened overnight.
Well, my little lump is fussing and I am going to try and pull my lumpy self up long enough to rock her for a minute or two. Neither one of us are resting enough and a mid morning nap sounds really good to me about now. Thanks for your prayers. Its days like today that I really wish we were home so Dave and our mom's could lend a hand. Being sick is just yucky!
