I feel like we have battling illness of one kind or another for about a month now. Which I think is one of the reasons I've felt so quiet. I have been saving my resources. But, doing a little writing today is feeling pretty good.
About 3 weeks ago Dave was in the ER with a racing heart, very low blood pressure and because he was passing out. About a week and a half after that, Andrew got the stomach flu, which lasted 5 days. Then Dave got it and his lasted for 3. After about 3 days of health Dave wakes up in the middle of the night with a racing heart again. He didn't pass out, but his face and hands were swollen and red and it looked pretty bad. So, we were in the ER again last Wednesday night. I guess, actually Thursday morning. Now he and Andrew have colds. Dave sees a doctor tomorrow and we are hoping to get the ball rolling on whether his racing heart episodes are just viruses, as the ER folk say, or something else.
I have had my own illness. Which really only began last Saturday. I have been attacked by Need-to-be-Doing-Lots-of-Projects. Which I bet you thought was sort of an every day thing for me. It is. But this is ridiculous. I can't sleep at night because I am thinking up all these projects. I dream about sewing and quilting and stamping. It seems that my nesting instincts are manifesting themselves in very cute projects.
These projects might also be a way to keep my mind off of worrying about my family.
While in Soho on Saturday I stopped in a very cool fabric store and picked up this messy, busy fabric. I just loved it. So cute. So yesterday and today I have been sewing little things for Sprout. Yesterday it was storage pockets for his diapering supplies. Today I made these covers for our diaper changing pad.
And this is only the beginning.
I think I need some intervention.
