Club Med

We continue our stay at an outrageously expensive resort. The service sucks, the food is adequate although fairly boring. No mint on the pillow, no cute folded towels or napkins. No masseuse or any other spa type treatments.
And this is one club that first, you don't want to go to, and second, are beyond happy to leave.
Our exit is looking possible at least for tomorrow. Little Man is no longer running a fever, is holding his own off oxygen. They need to see how he does when he sleeps before he is given an all clear. He is more interactive, a shade less vile and in general I can tell he is feeling better. He has me hopping around the room like a bunny, demanding this and that until I am ready to SCREAM! But I haven't. I just want to.
Because he has swine flu, he is in isolation so we can't go to the playroom or any walks. When Little Man heard that yesterday, he lost it, big time. This is not the hospital routine he is used to, and he made his unhappiness known. For at least the entire floor. I got paged from lunch. Ahem, yeah.
I got to spend the night in my own bed last night, while the boy's sweet daddy took a turn at the bedside. So grateful for a good man.
Bright Star continues to amaze everyone with her strength and humor. When asked on the phone by a friend what she was doing, Bright Star chirped, "dying, how about you?" Now you might not be amused by her black humor, but I got a big kick out of it. Do it in style my beloved Bright Star, do it your way.
Thank you once again for the kind comments and continued prayers. They are precious and cherished.

I am glad to hear you will be breaking out soon. Anything I can do let me know.

The Head Eagle said...

I sure hope you make it out of there SOON!

I've been thinking about you and The boy..alot..I ALMOST..almost stopped by the hospital yesterday, but didn't know if you would appreciate that! I said a little prayer instead and hoped that you felt it.

Please let me know if you need anything! Especially after you get home. I pass your house EVERY morning and then again in the afternoon! I am only a hop skip and a jump away..whether I am at home OR work!

Ahh, I am a little bit sadder for you know that you told that story about Bright Star. I do love a good morbid sense of humor.

I am glad, though, that Little Man is doing better, if not in spirit. Here's hoping you all are able to break out soon!

Yondalla said...

still thinking about you. Husband sent two kids home from his class yesterday with swine flu. Early this week one local school had 50% of students out.

Hope your boy is better and home soon!

bon said...

Oh yeah! Hope you get outta there soonest.

...and Bright Star? I am SO using that if I ever find myself in a similar situation. High-freakin'-larious!

Your niece is one strong lady.

I'm glad to hear Little Man is improving. Here's hoping you'll be going home soon.
