Not a Good Week

sick mom

It started on Monday when I started feeling sick to my stomach and just not feeling like myself, on Tuesday I was a little worse, still sick to my stomach with a headache that would not give up and my body was aching all over, on Wednesday I basically watched the kids while lying on the couch for most of the day, wishing I could have a sick day! Ayla was not thrilled with the idea of making lunch, breakfast and dinner for herself and Brennan, so I did have to drag my aching body off of the couch to do that! Trust me, they took full advantage of my sickness... I will have proof in later posts..lol! To make matters worse, John was on call Monday and Tuesday and worked late both days ....on Wednesday evening John decided to take the kids out for a little bit so I could have some time by myself. Kaleb was skiing with his school so I had the perfect opportunity to get a little rest and relaxation. Until.....

The phone rang and Kaleb's number popped up on my screen, I got a bad feeling right away that something was not right because it was early and he usually does not call until he is on his way home. I answered the phone to a girl saying Kaleb needs to talk to you. Kaleb gets on the phone and says, "Mom I think I broke something". My heart sank, trying not to panic, "what do you mean, are you okay? He continued to tell me that he had an accident and landed on his shoulder the wrong way and could not move his arm. Once they got him inside and evaluated him, they said that his bone (clavicle) was definitely protruding from under his skin. Of course I am in bed feeling like I have been hit with a sledge hammer feeling terrible that I could not be there for my son. They decided to end the ski trip early and head back home so we can take Kaleb to the hospital.

It took an hour and a half for him to get home. John had called a friend of ours and arranged to take Kaleb straight in for an x ray when he got home. Some shoulder fractures require surgery right away but 90% of them only require immoblization of your arm in a sling for 6 to 8 weeks. Kaleb's fracture does not require surgery at this time but in a couple of weeks if it is not healing like it is supposed to then he may have to have surgery. Being an OR nurse, I know this is one of the most painful fractures you can have. With that being said, he is being a trooper. We are giving him his pain meds consistently so he will not be in pain. He is pretty bummed because he was getting ready to go snowboarding in Colorado with Mamaw Sandy in two weeks and he only got to go on two ski trips with his school. I know things could always be worse and I am very thankful that they are not! So we are praying for a quick recovery for Kaleb and hoping that his fracture heals properly so he does not have to have surgery.

Today is the first day that I have felt more like myself. My stomach is still bothering me but at least my headache is gone and I dont feel like I have been ran over by a mac truck..lol..Im sure a lot of it is due to stress as well, I worried about Kaleb all night and was up frequently checking on him. So, I am hoping the weekend goes much better than my week and that my sickness does not spread to anyone else!

What a week! Oh, and I forgot to mention that Brennan is getting new teeth in and has been up several nights this week, he just grinds his teeth over and over...last night he was up from 1:30 until 5:30, so throw almost no sleep on top of everything else...SWEET!! Okay, sorry for complaining... but sometimes you just have to do it!!

I hope everyone has a GREAT weekend, I know I am looking forward to one!!!!

Wow it is no fun with you being sick and trying to being a mommy to all of your children!!! Take care of yourself. Also to answer your question, we don't have Aidan signed up for a class at the Gymnastic school. I decided to try a moms club and the activity that day was open gym at the gymnastic school. It was tons of fun for Aidan and he already is asking to go back there every day. Thanks for checking in on us and look forward to seeing more pictures of what the kids did while you were sick. Kids are kids!!!

Man! What a week! I am sorry that you have not been feeling well and that Kaleb got so badly hurt skiing. I hope it all heals properly so that he does not need to have surgery.
I am glad to hear that you are on the mend and hope no one else gets what you had. Loved that little cartoon funny. :) Kids really don't get it do they? Moms are people too! LOL

Glad to see that we are not the only ones refusing a haircut. It was one of those situations where I had no idea what to do. Part of me wanted to make her do it, but I did not(of course).

Your little ones are ADOREABLE. Of course I am loving all the MJ too. It is addicting.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
