New nurse today. I like her, which helps. He's more alert for longer periods of time, with more periods of frustration. I'm getting better at finding the right yes/no questions to ask. I can only imagine his frustration with being unable to communicate.
Nothing has really happened in the last 24hrs worth the energy of typing. I ran into a lady (almost quite literally) that told a friend she was there to rule out viral meningitis. She was wearing a face mask, but still I was six inches away from her when she said that. I moved away very quickly. Went upstairs and asked the nurse about it. This was yesterday afternoon. His nurse kept saying, "I bet you could have just shit yourself." I was just worried about carrying back to D.
I have just a few more days, then I'll need to start seriously looking for a job. Was really hoping he would be off the vent and out of ICU by now. It's going to be really hard.
The cats are venting their stress, peeing inappropriately. I put my clean black skorts on the bed, took a shower and when I went to put them on, wet on the backside. I yelled at them about not needing unnecessary nonsense.
Got a fair amount of knitting accomplished. It's back to where it was before I ripped it out. Maybe it will be finished this week. Then to decide what to work on next.
Yesterday, I took some time to spin for about 30 minutes. The BFL/silk natural color, I was working on in January. About 2 or more ozs left to spin. Then I will work on the merino/silk my friend from Phoenix brought me. I needed a bit of me and spinning time.
I tried to get a picture of the baby bird for you. It's two weeks old yesterday. Mama would not leave the nest so I could get a better picture. She and baby hollered at me something fierce for lifting that lid. I noticed there is another full size egg in there, plus two that look too tiny to be hatchable. This baby looks to be mostly white with a little black/grey. We'll see in a week when the real feathers come in.
That's all for today. Thank you for stopping by.
