I know I haven’t been posting much. I wanted to let you all know what is going on (which is a lot).
I hurt my arm pretty bad last week which affected my typing (and lifting). I thought I had torn my bicep or rotator cuff. Thankfully it wasn’t either. I sprained my bicep….which I didn’t know you could do. It is better now (I still can’t turn my arm a certain way) but man, it hurt!!!
My youngest daughter, Miss R, has been going through a rough patch. She has had behavioral problems which started when we went into lockdown back in March 2020. In October, she started seeing a therapist and has gotten better. But, BK and I noticed that she never seemed rested after sleeping (always has bags under her eyes) and BK heard her gasping for breath in her sleep. Plus, she is always very restless in her sleep (kicking, moving constantly). Everything combined was enough for me to call her pediatrician. She was concerned enough to refer us to a pediatric sleep specialist who then ordered a sleep study. The appointment with the sleep specialist and the sleep study took place last week but leading up to it, her sleep got worse. And when she can’t sleep, I can’t sleep. So I have been averaging up between 3-5 hours of sleep a night. I am exhausted (as is she). We are waiting on either the specialist or the neurologist to call and give a diagnosis.
Add in the other life issues (like Mr. Z getting braces), and I haven’t felt like reading. Too much going on and too much on my mind. But, now that things seem to be leveling off (knock on wood), I am starting to want to read again.
So that’s it. That’s where I have been. I hope to resume blogging by this weekend (if my arm agrees with me). I have quite a few book reviews backed up that need to be written!!!
