I Am Not Going to Think About It..

...Little Man's back of his hand is swollen and so his the part of his arm above his wrist.
Possiblities: Good, just regular ole swelling due to an IV being in there and then them trying to put another one in on the same arm.
Bad: Why would it be swollen? The IV didn't infilrate and the worst possiblity is Cellulitis, again. It would mean ANOTHER hospital stay, IV antibotics.
It isn't red, so I am not going to do anything at all tonight and I will deal with it in the morning.
...Little Man has not had a proper bowel movement in oh, say a week??? Which the doctor, the one who looked like a High School Debate Club president, reassured me that even with Little Man's long history of low motility and chronic constipation leading to hospital clean outs, was nothing to worry about.
Bad: just dealing with it. Little Man is having problems, crying, saying he can't go. What the heck am I supposed to do about that?
Good: He hasn't had his anti stop up medicine in days, (since that would have required swallowing) so after he has his meds for a day or so, he will be fine.
...Little Man has just completed day number 8 of no formula.
Bad: if he quits drinking it, we are SOL. (Soooo out of luck). We are talking tubes here people.
Good: He has been really out of his routine, which is a big deal for people with autism. So after getting back into his regular routine, he will go back to drinking his formula that costs as much as oil in the shower, like always.
Anyway, I am going to get a good nights sleep tonight and save any worrying for tomorrow.

Hope the swelling goes away, the shit hits...the toilet instead of the fan, and Little Man starts hitting the bottle (of formula) soon. Also hope you got a good night's sleep, and wake with a fresh new start today.

Thinking of you...
