Scotty Update

I just have to say this (and I don't really mean it, but you'll all know what it's like)

Hospitals SUCK. That being said, I have just spent the last 8 days, over 2 visits, with my little 10 week old son. Scott stoped breathing last Friday morning and so we went to Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and they did a whole battery of tests, decided he was stable cause he didn't stop breathing at the hospital, and sent us home withOUT a monitor. I didn't speel for 2 days/nights because hubby works nights and so I was home along with the baby and hubby sleeps in the days so I was caring for the baby. Tuesday night he stopped breathing again, and so back to CHOC for more tests and strange as it may sound, happily he had an episode there at the hospital. So a monitor was sent home with us tonight when we got to come home. Now I have the "joyfull" chore of getting the rest of my stuff packed up for my move to St. Paul MN on the 29th. Good news is hubby no longer has to work nights, last night was his last. WOOHOO!

In knitting news, I have made a fingerless glove. Yes, not a pair, a single glove. It's cute but I ned to find a way to tighten up the wrist. And I FINALLY got GOL. It only took 3 ordering trys from Borders where I used to work before they were able to get me a copy.

I hate hospitals.

Scott stopped breathing on friday morning (he started again thankfully) and I have just spent the last 60 hours at CHOC trying to find out what's wrong. Damn doctors have no idea, so here we are, home again. I don't think I'll ever sleep again, I'll just be watching him to make sure he's still breathing. They could have sent us home with a monitor but nooooooo, insurance says that he's medically stable and there's no need. Well, fuck them.

Sorry, a little wound up, stressed out, and all the other emotions that come with not being able to really hold your baby and walk with him when he's tired and wanting to be at home, not the hospital. Poor kid barely slept the entire time, every time he drifted off he would get woken up by someone wanting to check his vitals or a noise from the other bed, or the hall, or whatever. Slept 18 hours straight on release, barely woke up to eat and get changed in that time period.

Poor munchkin.

Baby Shots

WAAAA, my baby hurts and I can't do anything about it. *SNIFF*

Scotty had 5, yes that's 5, shots today and the poor little tyke isn't a happy camper. I can't blame him, his legs are all swollen at the shot sites and he's got a slight temp. I feel like a bad mommy cause all I can do is give hugs and kisses and can't make the pain go away.
