Tuesday was a pretty good day you are stuck in bed AGAIN. Lisa came in and fed Robby and I and put me on my side of the rest of the day, same old routine. She took some pictures of the Christmas decorations, it is so exciting every year to see them grow up… Everybody does such a great job. Rosa came in and fed Robby and I and rolled back on my butt for the night, it seems like all I do is eat and roll. Omar came in to take pictures of the lights at night for me, it looks amazing… He is so creative!
Wednesday… Well guess what?? Yep you guessed it… Another day in bed. I was getting really frustrated and concerned because all of his time in bed and it looks like my son was getting worse. Visiting nurse came out Monday and said "I think we need to call the wound care nurse to come out"… Are you kidding me?? I am no expert but when somebody needs a visiting nurse because they have a wound when you immediately sent out a wound care nurse?? I'm just glad they finally decided to send one out. Rosa came in and got Robby and I something to eat and set me back up.
Thursday was a pretty good day. I met the wound care nurse Chris, very knowledgeable! She even showed us a secret to taking off Calmoseptine, a very thick cream that protects your skin. It just comes right off with baby oil, makes sense now that I think about it. The wound care nurse cleaned up my pressure sore and it didn't look as bad as it did even a couple days ago, finally progress. Teresa came in this morning so that Karen would not have to take the bus here from San Jose, there was supposed to be a huge storm… The biggest one in over five years. It really stormed like crazy, it didn't seem so bad inside the house but looking at all the pictures that were posted was pretty scary. She finished putting up the Christmas decorations, there are still some that need to go on the tree but hopefully everything will be up and ready by the end of this week. I thought I would be stuck in bed for a long time but not only do I get to get up on Saturday but I think I might be done with all of this by the end of next week, I am so excited! I have been meeting to go to Costco for a long time and even though it will be very crowded I'm just so glad to get out of here… I know Robby will be also. Teresa found Robby's Christmas outfits, he looks so cute although I know he doesn't like it very much… He's a good sport! Rosa came in so we showed her what the wound care nurse showed us, and so excited about this new system.
Friday went by really fast, I like that! Karen came in and finish decorating the tree in the living room, I forgot to help her take pictures. We did some personal care and I got to take a shower over the bathtub, it felt so good! I watched a movie called The Normal Heart and it was a really good movie… Very sad but very good. Shaun came in and made me some potstickers with garlic and rice vinegar, they were so good. Teresa found Robby's Christmas outfits and boy was he thrilled… Not…It looks like a cat adopted us, there were three of them but two disappeared but one keeps hanging around, she's really cute but really vocal. She won't come in the house or in the garage which is good.
Saturday was a great day. I got up… Yes I got up and took Robby for cruise through the lagoon and down to the end of the wharf and back and then Lisa took me to Costco, I had been for so long that we filled up the basket really quick and have to go back on Tuesday to get the rest of what I need. The sun was out and it was a gorgeous day, was nice to be out again with Google glass taking pictures. I came back and Omar was putting together my shoe storage cabinets, he didn't like the way it will and he was very cranky by the time he left… He's such a perfectionist. I know he could have done a way better job but these cabinets were on sale for half price so I thought I would give them a go. Teresa came by and we ordered some Chinese food and ate way too much. She put me to bed at the rest of the evening I watched Christmas movies, every year I say that I'm going to but I never do so this year I'm going to do it.
