Mama, you’re fixed now?!

These are the words my assistant nurse declares after every medicine-giving exercise. Since I came from hospital and he wouldn’t let me out of his sight, he has demanded that he give me my cocktail of drugs and holds the glass of water as I swallow the tablets.

And once the tablets are down… Mama, you’re fixed now?! Then I have to explain that I must first finish ALL the tablets in the packets before I am fixed. Not sure he understands, but that’s the best I can do.

Another thing he says a lot that just finishes me, is : Mama, you can’t go with me? I haven’t been going anywhere, it’s always just him and DH so when he asks this I know that he wants me to go with and I have to say no, I wait here for you.

He’s also very insecure about my whereabouts in the house since my hospital stay. I have to announce where I’m going and what I’ll be doing. And if he’s forgotten where I said I’d be he runs through the house in a flat spin shrieking Mama, Mama!

But we are just loving him more than is humanly possible and I hope this episode is nothing more than a blip on his childhood memories. I can’t remember anything before 4/5 years anyway. Hope he’s the same.

I am definitely feeling much stronger this week and seeing as how I’m supposed to be back at work next week, it’s a good thing. Will obviously have to ease back into work but if this is how I feel after a month of the meds… I think there’s hope for me.

    Oh man, don’t they just break your heart? I hate seeing kids sad :(BUT, it sounds like Momma is almost all fixed now! Sounds like these meds are starting to do their job! I’m glad to hear you’re feeling better 🙂 Not sure if work is such a great plan next week – you’ll have to make sure you feel well enough to be going back!! Don’t do anything stoopid like I would :DKeep that chin up, and stick to the meds 🙂

    Wow – I don’t know how I missed all your troubles – think it was a bad work week for me and things! I’m so sorry to hear about your pains and the nightmare you’re having. I really hope worst case scenario never happens. And it’s so amazing how our little angels have natural instincts to protect their mommies from harm – incredible! Thinking of you and sending you tons of virtual flowers to recover faster!

    So very glad that you are feeling better. What a sweet boy your Thomas is, I am sure that as soon as you are in the routine of work and going out as a family again he will be more secure and will not be permanently marked by the recent experience. Huge hugs (gentle ones) and have a great weekend. xx

    It sounds like you have the most attentive and adorable little Thomas Nightingale! Glad to hear you are feeling stronger but only go back to work if you really think you are up to it. And maybe wearing a mask would be a good idea – there are so many yucky germs floating around at the moment. Thinking of you!
