Eye Patches, Illness, and Injury

We have had a crazy week.

On the minor side of things, we have had some colds. Bean, Little, Dad, Mom and even Middle. Oldest was the only one who got out of the germfest. Needless to say not much has gotten done around here but hacking, coughing, wiping, whining (mostly me), and resting.

Then on Wednesday to add insult to injury (oh wait to add injury to insult???), Hubby had a little mishap.

While doing something manly and youthful, aka under no circumstance doing something like putting on one's socks while balancing on one foot), he threw out his back. He has never experienced this kind of injury before. We had no idea what to expect. After 45 minutes laying on his stomach on the floor in our closet, he moved to the bed where he remained the whole day.

Day 2: He was able to hobble around with a make shift cane/umbrella and even sit on the couch. Woohoo major improvements!

Day 3: And we are back to being an invalid.

Day 4: WORSE! A trip to urgent care, meds prescribed, and more resting.

Day 5: Not really better. However, today he is in a drug induced stupor.

Day 6: Some PT and a long road ahead of us, but I am sure he will be back...ehem, to his normal self in no time.

As for eye patches...

Over the last two weeks Little has had some crazy lazy eye action going on. It came on kind of suddenly. Needless to say we are a tad bit worried.

Good news is we have a great referral for an doctor who specializes in this kind of thing AND we were blessed to get in super duper quick.

Until then we decided to pirate up Little.

When I told "Pirate" to show Daddy his hook, he held up a little crooked thumb. Then when Hubby asked him where his booty was, Little very matter of factly stated, "Dad my booty is behind me!"

Ahhh, love, love, love it.

Needless to say, we are overwhelmed over here. Every day I start out with a great list of things that need to be done. Some regular things like cleaning the toilets and folding laundry. Then there are the fun yet necessary things like sewing Halloween costumes and planning a party for Middle. On top of all that are all the fun ideas that my brain just has randomly on a daily basis.

Well by the end of that day, I am pretty sure all that is getting bumped out by resting, getting better, getting babies better, and taking care of Hubby.

So I am sorry that things have been slow around the blog, but first I am a Momma and a wife and that has definitely been where my time and devotion have been practically 24/7.

Thanks for understanding and hanging around anyway. I promise I will try to have a couple things up soon...including a sweet costume debut of Bean. You are going to die for sure!!!!

Thanks again guys! LOVE ya all.

Oh, hope everyone is feeling better soon. Wish I could drop dinner off or something...one downside to blog friends...we're not much help in person.

Our daughter has lazy eye and has to patch. It's no fun for anyone.
