I'm a day behind on my pictures because it takes me a while to take the picture, then upload it and then write something, so here is Nathan yesterday. It is not improved much but he seems a teeny bit perkier. Yesterday I was scared because at one point he was saying his head hurt. We couldn't get a straight answer if it hurt on the outside or inside, if it had just started hurting or had hurt since Saturday night. I started googling Epidural Hematoma and my imagination started racing with "what if"s. He was in bed all day yesterday and almost looked a little bit worse. On Sunday night, I slept in Nathan's bed and Nathan slept in our bed with Mark. Selfishly I could not handle being in there with him and worrying about him all night. Mark, being the brave one of our crew is much more capable of handling those types of things. Last night Nathan slept on our floor and I listened to him breathe all night. Any parent can relate to those types of nights regardless of having special needs kids. Mark was explaining to me that the fluid has nothing to block it from draining down into the eye area which is why it looks so bad. I have convinced myself that this will help it go away quicker than a typical hematoma that has to reabsorb because it has no where to go. I have absolutely no medical basis for this conclusion.
My Mom is staying tonight and leaving in the morning. I don't know what I will do without her. She has allowed me to take a nap when I need to clear my head, be with Nathan so I could go to work, fed the kids, walked out to the bus stop, given Libby extra attention and dealt with the initial emergency when I was completely freaking (although she did tell the EMT people that she was Mark's daughter in law) So anyway, I am so glad she has been here through this all, even though it limited our thrifting. I don't want her to leave!
