Mouse (or Maus, if you want to be picky) is slowly coming back from anemia and her latest flirt with death. Her sister Tuma was headed onto the downslope as well, but I think she'll be fine. Mouse will probably have some growth stunting from this episode, but - if Pan is any indication of recovery - shouldn't suffer any long term effects.

The kids continue to get big and bigger. Blair is still my buddy. William is still gorgeous and LOUD. Poppy is still so so soft. Hix has gone back to hating me since he got his ear tag. Casamir keeps catching his teeth in his fleece. I'm glad they are still baby teeth. He looks a little snaggletoothed at the moment.

So, I just catch sight of my brother leaving as I arrived at the rehab center. The nurse comes in and says she just has 10 min. to get this permission to perform a ttransfusion on the schedule for tomorrow. I sign it and try to calll my brother. Voicemail. I get my sister who says, yes she needs it. I call my son who says he can get her there by the 8:00 kickoff time. My brother calls me back, having already talked to my sister.
Say what you will, this is getting us to talk more.

Getting it right

Recently we were trying to figure out what my mother would eat while she was in the hospital. I heard this buzz of everyone trying to work out what she'd want in the way of Pizza toppings.
The difficulty lies in how infrequently my mother will insist she likes something -- she normally just goes along with what others choose.
While they were waiting, I drove down to 7-11 and got her an actual hot dog. *I* remembered once we were on the road and both were hungry and as I stopped at McD's for some sort of elaborate burger, she wanted a hot dog.
She ate all of it -- a major turn around from the hospital's attempts to give her something she'd want to eat.
,,, and I remembered because it was unusual for her to make a personal selection.

I was thinking of scenes that had gone south in the past. Read more... )
