Anyway, Adam is a lot better and returned to work today. But now I'm a bit sick. Madeline is pretty awful too - all snotty and sad. But since Lucy has stopped breastfeeding I'm loving the cold and flu medication that I'm now free to take after approximately 7 years of not being able to take them!
Emma and Lucy have so far resisted getting sick at all, although Lucy's white blood cell count was down today which may indicate that she's fighting the virus - hopefully she will win and she wont get sick - especially as we're hoping to have a few days up at the Blue Mountains over the long weekend before her next chemo cycle starts Friday week (hopefully).
I'm feeling a bit defeated on the home front - and too tired to really do anything about it. It's not too crazy, just random and frustrating piles of washing that are not putting themselves away, piles of paper that seem to materialise out of the air, and the relentlessness of having to feed small people and clean up after them! We still have a few meals in the freezer and quite often people very kindly drop in a meal, for which we are very very grateful and which makes the feeding of the small people much less stressful. I'd love to do some sewing (for some reason it's become my sanity) but the last little while it's just not been possible. Maybe tomorrow.... It's Madeline's birthday on the weekend and I'd love to make her a little dress, but I'm not sure I'll get there. Oh well. Maybe I'll just aim for Christmas....
Emma is enjoying Spring Fest at Mowbray School - a holiday kid's programme put on by Lane Cove & Mowbray Anglican churches. Such a great opportunity. She's loving the games and craft, and especially getting to know and hang out with some big girl leaders. Next week she's also going to go to a special Sibling Day at the hospital which she's looking forward to.
Hope you're enjoying your holidays and not succumbing to any of the nasty bugs doing the rounds at the moment!
