Spent a little time checking the news online (our local TV station has a pretty good website
) and noticed this story
. One question sticks in my mind; who in their right mind would do this? It reminds me of that idiot in Georgia who dumped bodies that were to be cremated all over the ground around the crematory. Did he honestly think no one would eventually notice?
That's my venting about the news for the month. Now back to more gushing over my new daughter (and remarks about kids in general). SR slept all night last night, thanks be to the Almighty. SR gets fed at night by G-tube (slowly, only 40 cc per hour), and she was very tired last night, so I guess she just crashed and burned when her little head hit the crib. Good thing, too, as The Better Half and I were wiped out last night after trying to get J, P and M into bed at a decent hour. I swear, at times it's like trying to herd cats to get these little heathens to listen to reason. Maybe that's the problem; most adults don't listen to reason, why should I expect children to? Duh! *smack on forehead with hand, forgetting that hand is holding pen at moment* OUCH! That's gonna leave a mark.
KC didn't have to go to school today, so I didn't have to prepare his formula and meds before I left for work. You know, that's why I've been feeling like something was missing today, my routine was off. Damn. Speaking of KC, The Better Half and I (all right, all right, The Better Half, then) have been trying something different with the little bugger lately. KC has a G-tube and a J-tube for feeding (the difference being the G-tube leads to the stomach, the J-tube leads to the small intestine; the J-tube was installed when his reflux got too bad for him to have anything on his stomach at all). The Better Half tried giving him his formula through his G-tube the other day, and lo and behold, no problems! It's also a little more convenient for us, since he can be fed at a higher volume through the G-tube (max for G-tube is as fast as he can stand it; max for J-tube is right about 50 cc/hour). We're making progress, folks! We've been feeding KC through the G-tube for about a week now, and so far, so good.
Work is calling my name (actually, work is kicking me in the butt as we speak, but what else is new?). See you later!
Real quick: just ran a spell check on this and the system wanted to replace "meds" with "meads". I wish!!
