William is sick and is staying at a hotel with Greta. Gavin and I had dinner here by ourselves. He got to be the Man of the House and sit at the head of the table!
Everything is dripping in Lysol, hands are raw from incessant washing, and I’ve started wearing a surgical mask when caring for Nora tonight. I am hoping and praying that this headache of mine is only a result of stress and sleep deprivation! Which I’m sure aren’t revving up my immune system any?
I’m choosing to focus tonight on the incredible appointment at the eye doctor this morning! The unexpected news that Nora’s vision is not impinged by her genetic makeup is nothing short of miraculous! I was all but certain she would at least need glasses and was even picking out frame colors in my mind. Nora sees things well, but because of her low muscle tone her eyes aren’t always aligned as they should be. This is correctable by surgery, but it’s too risky to put Nora under anesthesia right now. Instead we’re going to try using an eye patch alterrrrrnating each eye for an hourrrrrr a day, matey.
She did soooo good with the first run and squealed the whole way home! I wonder if it enabled her to focus better with the one eye?
Nora doesn’t seem interested in going to sleep now that it’s night time. If you happen to read this late tonight, please pray for a restful night for all of us, William and Greta included. I hate having them away and not being able to cuddle my big girl, even if she were here. 😦 And I miss my hubz. Please also pray that I’m not getting sick! Despite all of this – at least my baby girl can see! She knows our faces and SEES how we love her! That is awesome and miraculous!!!
