Ok, This Whole Week Sucks!

We're not having a great week. On top of Marino's injuries, now I am really sick with some stomach issue. I've been sick since Monday. I saw my GI doctor today and he said either I have c.diff again (NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) or this is a bad flare up of my colitis, probably caused by stress. I have to have some tests done, but I do have some prescriptions in the meantime that will hopefully help.

Marino is hanging in there. I'm really proud of how well he is dealing with his burns. The worst part is bandaging them. It takes a while (20-30 minutes) and he does not like sitting still. I have been bribing him with the Wonder Pets and watered down apple cider but he is still miserable and cries through most of the bandaging process.

Here's a shot of each of his hands, unwrapped. Not pretty, huh?

Last night he slept through the night again, so I'm hoping that means his pain is starting to decrease some. I think the bandages really help with the pain, too. Yesterday we let him play for a few minutes with the bandages off, but everytime he would touch something, he would stop and look at his hand. It must be pretty uncomfortable.

Hopefully, my next update will be more upbeat. My mom is coming Friday, so that will be a big help. I'm optimistic I will feel well enough to leave the house by this weekend!

  1. oh my gosh. The pictures just completely, completely broke my heart. I'm seriously sitting here with tears in my eyes.

    I'm sorry you're sick, too, of course.
