7.26.365: Craftiness

If Children’s Hospital ever found themselves in need of some quick cash, they could go room-to-room gathering all the completed craft projects they hand out to the kids each day to sell on etsy.

When we arrived in the ER, we had nothing except my purse. When we walked out seven days later, we had four bags worth of stuff. True, one of those bags was clothes and one was medical supplies, but that still leaves two bags full of craft projects. The Oldest was delighted.

7.25.365: Waiting. Again.

By this point, She was feeling pretty good. Her arm wasn’t bothering¬† her. That smell of death was gone. The only reason we were still stuck in the hospital was because they wanted to make sure her infection was going to stay gone.

Which meant being hooked up to an IV for many hours a day, getting pumped full of antibiotics. I’m grateful for modern medicine. I really am. But, she would have happily ripped that IV out and run for the door if I had given her half a chance.

A lovely person sent balloons for the Oldest and a Starbucks gift card for me.

I love that woman. Thank you, Sarah!
