The Direct Line

This morning I made the call. It's sometimes called the Mom Call, or the Grammy Call. It's the call to my mother to come. I always wait as long as I can and avoid it whenever possible. I have to deal with things, everyone does. But when it's about Braska's health, in any way, the call gets made.

Braska has been sick with a cold, her first real cold in her life, since about last Thursday afternoon. She's been pretty much a champ, with a bit of grouchy mixed in, but overall, not too bad an attitude considering the goo coming out of her poor nose. I managed to keep things manageable for me with lots of disinfecting and hand sanitizer, etc. But it got me. This weekend was rough since we were both sick and M went to C-U to game it up with the guys. We got sick of each other in the midst of our sickness, but we made it through.

Braska's well check (not AS well as I'd like) was yesterday at her pediatrician. We got the all-clear on the big stuff and the famous rest, fluids, suctioning, humidifier, saline, etc for the cold elements. As expected. No problem. Braska's seems to be letting up a tad, but it's still a'flowin' from the nose. And last night I was up for a few hours with the oh-so-fun onset of some variety of stomach bug. Being sick and close to 8 months pregnant is no fun, no surprise there.

So this morning, the call was made. I just can't have Braska getting this stomach part. It's the worst I've had in quite some time. Mom knows what an 8am call from me means... and she was ready to go by the time she answered the phone.

Thanks Dad, J, R, and J for letting her come up. Now we pray we can all get better and no one else gets this icky stuff.

  1. Hang in there guys. I know Grammy will make things better. And we Grandmas like being able to help our babies (regardless of age). :)We'll pray everyone is back to their old sweet selves in no time.
