Girls Home Safely
Sue and Kari made it home, safe and sound, last night. What a relief! Sue told me it was a rough trip. They were in rain and fog for a significant portion. Everyone was exhausted. Sue and Kari from the drive and myself from 3 days of non-stop care. I passed out within minutes of their arrival and slept for four hours. Kari went upstairs and took a long, relaxing bath. Sue went into the bed next to Ryan’s and contended with a killer headache.
Sue resisted fiercely, but I finally convinced her to go to bed. I’m willing to bet she was asleep before her head hit the pillow. Kari came down to keep me company. She relaxed next to me on the bed as we watched some late-night television. It wasn’t long before I was out again.
Ryan Closes Eyes
It happened again yesterday. Ryan closed his eyes (nearly) completely. He kept them closed for at least an hour. Then, when I had to brush his teeth, they opened. I’m taking this as a positive sign. At the very least, it is giving his eyes a break. I just wish I knew for sure that he was having sleep/wake cycles. I wonder if he dreams…
This was the third time I observed his eyes shut for an extended period of time. My personal philosophy is “three times makes a pattern”. You know, just like three of anything makes a collection. Anyhow, I believe I’ll start documenting this to see if I can tie it to something specific.
Blog on iPad
If you have the iPad, you should take a look at how nicely this blog is presented on it. I’d like to take the credit, but I had nothing at all to do with it. It was a free upgrade from WordPress (this blog’s platform). It’s formatted in a magazine-style layout. Very nice! To me, this is the best way to read it. Everything is “touch controlled”.
