I'm not closeminded...just see things better my way!

This is week three in the life of our new baby Paul and unfortunately it's been a rough start. First week his Mom ended up at the ER, then the OR for a D & C. Second week she got mastitis....been there, done that and in my opinion it's one of the worse of the 'female things'. Then 2am Sat. morning we got a call to come stay with 2 yrs. old big brother Jack, they had to rush baby Paul to hospital. He had been extremely fussy and had high fever. He is still in the hospital and we are waiting for test results. Poor baby had a 'full work up' which included a Lumbar Puncture (spinal tap). They are thinking it's some type of viral infection and he's improving but it's scary for the little guy to be so sick. In this situation my maternal instinct to 'fix everything' leaves me feeling useless and frustrated. Luckily we have lots of family here that have pitched in to help. Jack has been wonderful, but taking care of a toddler wears me out! Please keep Paul and his parents in your thoughts. Hopefully when this passes we will have all sweet sunshine and fluffy teddy bears.
Am I really 50+? Life is good. My fortunes include an amazing husband, four fabulous daughters (2 birth, 2 bonus), two wonderful son-in-laws and three adorable grandsons. I am a teacher and owner of a home-based business. I started Basement Bags, a custom sewing/embroidery boutique, in 2005 and am working hard to monogram the world! I am usually too loud, always on a diet, passionate about sewing/embroidery, love to read, appreciate a good glass of White Zen, and live for school vacations. I am thankful for hair color and shapeware. I love 'Mexican dates' with my family, summers at the lake, thunder storms and sleeping late on Saturday! "Home" is my favorite place on earth.
