Just a quick update before I have to give Jonah his next bottle.
Jonah's doing well and seems to be gushing less these days. He's now going several days in between instead of the nightly requisite puking he was doing a couple weeks ago. I'm thankful and fully realize it probably won't last (it never does), but am thankful for it for now. He had a huge wrap-around blister around his elbow yesterday when we unwrapped him, but other than that he's looking pretty good. His face is in pretty rough shape right now, and his little boy parts are still a little blistered, although better. He's sad several pretty bad nosebleeds this week. I don't really know why. I have a humidifier that runs in his room and a fan on so he doesn't get overheated, but he still gets them. It's kind of a bummer because it makes his inner nose all scabby which tends to pull the skin and make it pretty raw in there. I'm hoping it stops soon.
I had my Girls' Night last night. Only three of the five could make it, but it was still great. We just laugh and talk non-stop, and it's just what the doctor ordered. I'm slowly coming out of this funk of mine, but have lost some serious party planning time. This weekend and next week will be very busy. Nothing like a looming deadline to make you get your butt in gear. I'm kind of just having faith that it will all work out and come together, but I definitely have a lot of facilitating I need to do to make that happen. Matt's mom is coming on Sunday night and Matt can help a lot this weekend, so I should be able to get a lot done.
Matt and I are getting a hotel room here locally tonight, and Kathryn and my sister, Sarah, are coming to keep Jonah OVERNIGHT! It will be really good for us to get away, and we plan to be back by 10:30 in the morning to do dressing change. Matt keeps saying, "I'm gonna sleep 12 hours." Amen, brother. I'm with you. I'm excited about the sleep and relaxation. I'm one of those people who has a REALLY hard time relaxing in my own house if I know there are things that need to be done. I need to get OUT to vacation. But I'm also feeling anxious about leaving and slept horribly last night because of it. I'm not anxious about Jonah's care. I'm anxious about being without him. I'm way more dependent on him than he is on me, I think. Really hoping I'll be able to relax and enjoy it and use the missing him to make the coming back better, not let it ruin our time away. Any prayers for me to chill the heck out are much appreciated. :)
Alright, that's it for me. Bottle time.
Happy (beautiful weather finally!) weekend.
