Last week was a doozy, that’s for sure! Found out Tuesday Dan fractured his scapula as well when he crashed…icing on the pain cake! 😉 Here he is smiling, because he knows some form of relief is coming.
Surgery was Wednesday morning. Sam woke up about midnight with a horrid cough and breathing that was NOT pretty. I knew exactly what it was since he had it back in May and also last Christmas. Croup. Might as well add another thing into the mix for our week. When he gets croup, he gets it pretty bad. Thankfully it wasn’t as bad this time as it was six months ago. He missed two days of school and was back for Friday.
Thursday rolled around and Dan was in a world of hurt. It seemed even worse than before when his bone was broken. He was really feeling his scapula now and the that incision/bone/plate combo really does hurt for a few days after it’s fixed. Also, he only got about one hour of sleep for six nights in a row. He was basically a walking zombie by this point.
Thankfully he did get a few more hours Thursday night and through the weekend. He’ll be sleeping in our awesome LaFuma camp chair for another week or so I think. It’s the most comfortable place to sleep at this point.
Thankful I’ve been able to still make it to teach some of my classes and get my workouts in. It kept me sane last week! Annual baking night with my sisters and Mom. We missed you so much Jenn. Goodies coming your way!
And another one of our favorite things during December. Our friends host an annual kids Christmas party every year. Lots of kids, good food, good company and this year for the first time…Santa came! Sam was amazed, like…times a million!
Here’s to a better, healthier week ahead!
