I haven't been blogging much lately because 1) I have a 2-year-old in a body cast, and 2) my brain appears to be scrambled. Honestly, most days I am in a fog the entire day. I've been like this ever since the accident, and I think it's probably due to sleep deprivation. DH and I have been alternating spending the night in BB's room since the accident. I don't sleep well when it's my turn to sleep in there, and then when I'm not in his room, I still have trouble sleeping.
The sleep situation is hard on DH, as well. In addition to sleeping every other night in BB's room, he has been working major overtime for the past 4 weeks. He has a big deadline this Friday, so please pray that all goes well (since DH is a salaried employee, he does not get overtime pay, for those wondering about that).
As of today, we are 1/3 through this ordeal. I really wish that we were 1/2 or 3/4 through. I'm not trying to gross anybody out, but the cast is starting to stink. I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to handle the cast smell for 4 more weeks. I've tried reading about solutions on Google, but I haven't found any. Does anyone have any ideas? I have a super sensitive nose, and I gag at bad smells. I'm pretty sure gagging every time I come near BB would have some sort of long-term negative effect on him.
Finally, my parents have come over every day since the accident. They're trying to help, and I appreciate it, but I kinda feel like I'm back in high school. My parents are not the type that you can say anything to, so I suppose I just get to count this as extra character building for me. Please pray for me that this time will pass quickly!
On the up side, BB is doing really well with his cast. He is hardly ever fussy about being so restricted. This could be due to the fact that the TV is on almost constantly right now. I think we might have a problem with the TV when the cast comes off, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.
