Hard Week

It has been a while since I posted because I haven't had much to say. I've been feeling tired and sick. I've thrown up a lot this week. Actually, I threw up so much/hard last evening that my throat is still sore. The last vomit session showed some blood (not much, no getting excited--clearly from my throat) even. My skin is terribly dry and my feet in particular are painfully so. I do get out with my little Captain, in the mornings. We go to the park or the playground or the mall. I also signed us up for Music Together, which I am really looking forward to, and I think my Mom will also like (she will have to take him now and then).

Two pieces of good news! 1) the mother's helper I hired is working out very well. Captain Adorable enjoys the time he spends with her (she takes him outside for walks and he loves that!). Of course the fact that the weather is nice, making it possible for her to take him outside helps a lot too. I really need the naps that her presence allows me, so it helps me a lot too. I have spied on her/them several times and I have always seen her behave gently and patiently with him, so I feel comfortable. 2) Our awful neighbors are moving out! I can only hope for a set of neighbors that is not so bad and does not have a dog!

Next week is the week with no pills, so I am hoping to feel much better. I have no helper next week, and Captain Obvious is going to be out of town the whole week for training. Thank goodness my Mom is coming on Wednesday. I am currently having trouble eating and cooking, because food just turns me off right now.

I hope next week is better. I'll be thinking of you and your little Captain.
