Of course dealing with so much trach snot and suctioning I can't help but catch whatever Ainsley has any time she has anything. Luckily it's not as severe for me since I still have to take care of her day and night. Adrian also woke several times throughout last night with severe ear pain that required a hot pad and Ibuprofen. Evie also has a bit of a cough. I'm so thankful that I don't have the terrible cough. That is the worst! It's real fun around here.
Thankfully we got word yesterday that Steve's company decided not to extend "crunch" another month. After this past year I might have lost it. They will work extended hours just during next week and then will go to normal 40(ish) hour work weeks to finish the game in June. Thank God! Plus he got the weekend off again. It's great that he's home again this weekend, I just hope he won't catch what the rest of us have. Though Steve needs to recuperate too from the extreme work schedule, maybe I actually will be able to get away by myself soon, for a day or two. Wouldn't that be something?!
Honestly having my husband at home to help out with the nighttime routine and Ainsley's care will feel like a vacation. I'm still not giving up on some PTO though. ; )
Well, I've gotta go suction, give meds and a tube feeding and get Ainsley cleaned up and dressed. I hope you all have a good weekend!(Actually, the best thing about being sick is getting to sit around and watch movies guilt free so this might turn out to be a nice family weekend for us after all.)
