Now at home, she is pretending with anyone who will pretend with her, that she is a Dr. and she is going to poke them. Of course, she would really like the recipient of the "poke" to cry mercilessly after the needle. She is a funny kid. Now I have found out I went to the wrong lab, and they won't get the results in time for Occupation Therapy. Arghh. Should they have labs 100 feet apart? Seriously! Now, I am feeling like an awful mother. But, this is all a learning experience, I just wish I was learning it with my own troubles instead of with my sweet baby.
I am not a fan of this experience. Last night, my sweet Lizard (Elizabeth) woke up with nightmares. She was screaming, and terrified and it took her two hours to get back to sleep. I don't know if she was dreaming about that rotten snake, or if she is terrified of all the Docs, nurses, and needles. Poor little kid. I wish it was all over, but we still have more blood work ahead of us (because venom stays in the body longer than anti-venom). Occupational therapy starts tomorrow, and I really hope they just give me stuff to do, so I am not driving 45 minutes away each time she needs to do work.
We are also so blessed. Our ward has really wanted to do something for us. With my parents flying into town to take care of us, we weren't really "in need." So, now they are gone, I feel so blessed, and somewhat guilty my friends are bringing dinner to my family. I know I could make dinner, but it is still a blessing to have that taken care of. I am coming off the adrenaline now, and those sleepless nights are catching up with me. So, I really am blessed that my ward is good to us. I have been touched and amazed at the rally of support we have seen.
