It's been busy here. I'm still catching up on laundry from Acorn's week in the hospital and dishes from Thanksgiving.
Leaf is still in the PICU and still vented. We're hoping that we're finally making progress in getting her off the vent, but it's really all up to her.
Acorn is home from the hospital as well, and back to his normal self, other than the return of nightmares. It's been a long time since that was a multiple times a night every night thing, and I don't really know how to help him. He's come up with a handful of new words this week though, and has been more actively signing things since his hospital stay (though sometimes he's just signing "yes" when he means "I want that thing over there"
I've been trying to spend my evenings in the PICU writing. Some days it works better than others - but there are projects in the works and things that need to get done. At the very least, it's time to wind down from being "on" all day with Acorn. We're both adjusting, and it's a process...we're not comfortable with it yet, but we'll get there.
I have nothing really deep to say right now - just too darn tired after a night of being up a fair portion of the night with Acorn when he's having nightmares. But I do have a post already written for the 21 days of Yule over at http://thepaganhousehold.com, so be on the look out for that in December.
