Hospital stay: day 4

Zach left for Munich today. The in-laws are with D at the moment, I was on my way to hang out at Starbucks for a bit of a break and stopped by and internet cafe I'd seen earlier and was surprised to see it open on a sunday, so am taking advnatage of that for a few. Unfortunately I hadnàt thought of the whole foreign-keyboard deal. This one doesn't seem too bad except that the Y took me 5 minutes to find.

I'm finding (not surprisingly) that my mood seems to correlate with how much sleep I'm getting. And I haven't gotten much sleep today. D has seemed more fussy and high-maintenance all day, which I guess I can't fault him for... he is in the hospital getting doped up and has a huge cast thing on his arm, after all. I think I'd be grumpy, too.

So Zach gets back Thurs morning, till then Hank and Susan will be coming by to help me out. I'm trying to stay patient and calm, or as much as possible. This parenting thing is definitely the biggest challenge of my life. I have a newfound respect and awe for all mothers out there.

  1. You are allowed to be cranky - the lack of sleep, the traveling husband, the baby in the hospital... give yourself a break.

    Make sure you are still eating well, and enough. You can't do much about the lack of sleep, but make sure someone can privide you with good, healthy food so you can at least generate energy that way (since you can't replanish energy with sleep).
