Bradley has to go to the burn center clinic and have his donor skin put back here it belongs, he has been really good about not bothering it yet and we are keeping the benadryl in him for the itching but, when he sleeps he wallers, and has managed to get the front piece all wadded up into a line and I was not about to take the bandages off and try to get it back on right since I have not seen it with out the bandages all the way yet and the risk of infection while fighting to hold him still and get it back on correctly is not worth it. The Burn center told us that as long as it was not bleeding or smelling of infection he would be ok until the morning, and to keep putting the burn meds on the exposed corner.
He has been a wild indian for the last 24 hours... or longer, since surgery... all three spent the night here last night which was a really good thing on so many levels as we had major storms last night with 2.5 inches of blinding rain, stephanie could barely see the road except for when it was lightening flashing, as it was coming down so hard. and of course Bradleys head can not get wet... HE IS MISSING HIS BATHS...
Cory slept 10 hours which is the longest he has slept in ages at one time.
and I hope that it was a relief to Stephanie to know all she had to do was wake me if she needed help with Bradley.
Tonight they are at home, and after Bradleys clinic appt, he will come stay here till tuesday when she gets off work.
This has been so hard for them in so many ways... I think the realisation that as smart as he is he is still just a baby hit them... well HER it has... Cory, God Bless his heart (if you are from the south you know WHAT I mean) is just trying to tell himself over and over that its all ok.
In the mean time they both have missed work and stepanies missed school, of course they both work the kind of jobs that do not have sick time or what ever so when living pay check to pay check thats another stress that is added and,
HOPEFULLY they will finally understand WHY I am so tight with money, I pay my bills and THEN if there is anything left do something I want or buy something I want... and I plan and try hard to save for emergencies... I have tried talking to ALL my children since they were big enough to speak to understand that lifes hard and it is HARD WORK to survive. I have tried to SHOW them by example but, they have not understood... that we did without so they could have and do as much as possible and we Have spent 24 years WORKING HARD to get to where we are today.
anyway THANK YOU ALL AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN for the prayers and calls and texts and messages and everything because I KNOW that My true friends and family are living in my computer. THERE is SO MUCH GOOD to be found online that is is simply overwhelming at times to think...
anyway heres a pic to enjoy....
TA TA till tomorrow. and thank you again!
love and hugs ME.
