Today is dressing change day. Don’t know if you noticed but I didn’t even mention the last two dressing changes because they were such non-events. Ten, fifteen minutes and it was done. Today’s will be a bit longer though as the nurse from Salmon Arm is coming out to do the change. It appears that most, if not all, the stitches that hold the cord coming out of her chest have become detached and she has a rash under the dressing that is terribly itchy. MJ is going to see if she can’t figure out a way to give Bernadette a little relief for all the scratching.
Other than that, nothing much has changed really. We’ve watched a lot of movies because Bernadette’s energy level is low due to the cold. With five of us sick, movies seem to be the preferred activity of all of us – except Zoe that is. She’s discovered that Bernadette has a whole world of Barbie on the other side of the room and now there is no distracting her from it. Too funny. Well, at least someone wants to play with it all. Wonder if the Wish Foundation will notice the difference if I send pictures of Zoe playing with it instead of Bernadette?
Thank you for all the Birthday wishes yesterday. And to answer many of your questions, yes I did come down with the cold. My throat was sore when I recorded the last entry but I was hoping it would go away by morning. It did, but then the rest of the cold hit like a ton of bricks in the middle of the afternoon. Oh well. A family that suffers together gets quarantined together.
We hope you all have a very peaceful, loving and joyful Christmas. Many God pour out all His blessings over you Bernadette and to the rest of you! Those darn colds can be quite the nucnese ( I know I didn’t spell that right). The prayers are daily for you Bernadette… God is with you and loves you soooooo much!
Many hugs to you all!!!!
Love and prayers,
Sylvie and Carl xoxo
We hope you all starting feeling better really soon (unless you’re enjoying the movies too much!)
