Easter Break

Jamie underwent eye surgery late Wednesday afternoon. The up side: once the healing completes, her vision should pretty much be perfect. Which is great news for someone as young as she is. The down side: for a few days she will be quite uncomfortable. She’s allowed to become a baby during this time, needing constant care and attention every hour on the hour. She’s actually a great patient. It can’t be easy not to be able to see, and have your eyes drip non-stop, plus have nothing to do other than listen to audio books and sleep.

This in itself is taking up my time. On top of it, my darling mother hasn’t been feeling well this week. This finally led to a trip to the emergency room and, after a battery of tests, the discovery that she has a kidney stone. And it really wants to come out. So that’s the plan for today. And since I can’t split myself down the middle to take care of both my “girls,” this is one of those times that I am ever so grateful for my children. Half the family present at the moment (which includes two dogs and a cat) gets to take care of Jamie, while the other half will spend the day at the hospital with Oma (as her grandchildren lovingly call her), while that pesky stone is removed.

I’m sure you’ll understand why I will not be posting over the next few days. But for those of you who celebrate, I certainly wanted to wish you a lovely Easter weekend. 🙂
