And I'm so glad.
'Member how I was so thankful for "Grace" in one of my last posts? Well, I wasn't very thankful when she deserted me at 2 am on Sunday morning when I hadn't been to bed yet, thanks to the K-man screaming and throwing fits and coughing his head off. I know he didn't feel good, but he would not let us help him at ALL. Breathing treatments? Fight. Medicine? Fight. Drink? Fight. Snack? Fight. Sleep? Fight. Cough. Fight. Diaper Change? Fight. Hold him? Fight. Cough. Fight. Put him down? Fight. Scream. Fight. Give him.....anything? Fight. Take it back? Fight more.
After doing that routine from 8pm Saturday night all the way through about 5am Sunday morning with no sleep whatsoever for mommy and daddy, it was clearly evident, Grace had disappeared and no amount of praying was going to bring her back.
If it hadn't been for munchkin being with KC's parents for the weekend, it would have REALLY been a disaster to be without Grace. LOL.
So after another doctors visit on Sunday morning for some cough medicine powered with codeine so that he could sleep (and consequently, mommy and daddy could sleep), we went back home and tried to catch some zzzzs while he watched a movie. Not much good.
Then Mom and Dad showed up. That was SOOO nice. She and dad watched K-man for several hours and tried to coax him to eat and changed his diapers and all that lovely stuff while the mommy and daddy in need of Grace slept. When we got up after a little rest, things looked much better.
And after he slept a good part of last night without coughing (allowing US to sleep most of the night without getting too frustrated), it was obvious Grace was back.
Ahhh. I love Grace. Even if she did abandon me in the midst of sleepless nights.
The best news? K-man's started playing again this afternoon. He's SO going back to school tomorrow. YAY!!!! And KC's parents dropped munchkin off at school this morning, so I'll go pick her up this afternoon and hopefully all will be back to normal again.
In the meantime, welcome back, Grace!!!
