I have a random thing that I need to keep track of that most of you won't give a moments care to. Ella fell in the tub last night and bumped her nose. No mark but it is sore. We put ice on it and gave her a dose of ibuprophen. Today she found a spot of blood in her nose and went to the clinic. Emma has a hang nail that has gotten infected and I have been putting neosporin and a bandaid on it for 2 days. She, too, went to the clinic today. My DH was there for both visits b/c he went to drop things off at the office. Michael walked in looked very out of it. My DH asked him why he was there. (We have stopped letting the school give him his meds b/c the lady talks to him like a baby and I no longer feel I can trust them to have added contact with him. She tries to bribe him to be good at home.) He is just stopping by b/c he wants to and he likes the candy she gives him.
The kids are not handling things very well right now. Patches had a very rough night. She destroyed everything. I took pictures. It was very sad. I was impressed that in the middle of the fit she stopped to write a song about me. Of course, it was not something most mother's would like to hear about themselves but I was thrilled she was writing anything. LOL
Ella and Michael are still not eating very well. He is skipping meals completely, up to 2 a day. He is asking for his meds every couple of hours and Ella is asking if I can make her stomach stop hurting. She feels butterflies all the time. Michael, Ava, Ruthie, and Ella are not sleeping very well. For that matter, neither is Kiera. She is having full on nightmares again. It is awful. Michael and Ella are still begging to sleep in our room and are wetting nightly. Ava has had several accidents this week. Life is tough.
They have received an enormous amount of cards! They are so thrilled to check the mail. I took a picture of them opening the first batch. If you could have heard the screams. It was better than Christmas. They think they are famous and popular. Thank you all so much for doing that for them. It has been the only bright spot in a very dark week.
I have been asked by someone how to email me. On the left side of the screen there should be a photo of the kids and it says, "About Me". If you will click on the picture it brings you to my profile and a way to contact me. You may also add me as a friend on Facebook, if you tell me you are from here. I am no longer terrified to be found.
