Torture versus Love
I won't lie to you, this nursing business has not been fun. Sticking needles into my boys has been torture for me and them. Due to B being impossible to hold down I have not been able to give him fluids for two days, I am attempting it again this morning. He is eating a tiny bit better and drinking plenty of water, he is acting more like himself and he is keeping all of it down, but he is not eating near enough, not near. He is so thin it is hard to understand how he can stand. I have been working on my attitude as the grace flew away and I want it back. I decided that today instead of dreading the giving of fluids, I would remember that it can save his life, so instead of torture it is loving and I hope that this will help us get it done this morning. If any of you have been through this, please email me and give me some pointers :-). I have not had much time to blog or visit, but I know you understand. Thank you for all your prayers and loving thoughts they have helped more than you know.
