Supercharged Small Sprog

Today and yesterday have gently merged into each other with another hospital run for Small Sprog at 3 am this morning. Both of us are severely sleep deprived, but at this moment he is driving his remote control helicopter around the sitting room! The drugs they give him in hospital make his heart race, a little like a caffeine rush I assume, so it is a sleep deprived but supercharged Small Sprog which lives here today! It would be funny, if it had not been such a long night.

Luckily the adult to child ratio here has been a little better than normal, with Small Sprogs cousin, who has just left, taking the pressure off and playing with him endlessly. When Small Sprog is like this he has a butterfly mind and it takes quite a bit of keeping up with- Lego, wii, helicopters, marbles, wii, Lego, wii, helicopters -can you see what I mean?

Tomorrow (should we be lucky enough to stay away from the hospital tonight) we have a duty call to see Mother in Law in Devon. These visits are often fraught, Husband will be tense but I am passed caring now! She no longer upsets me as she once did. The bonus is that Small Sprog might sleep in the car, therefore catching up a little, and I am hoping against hope that his 'superchargedness' will have dwindled to a mild rev!

my poor sweetie, what you've been through! Hope Small Sprog will be alright now. This asthma is very worrying. My neice also had it very badly.

Oh don't talk to me about the Wii thing!

good luck with the out-law tomorrow. mine are coming for lunch. They both eat like two anorexics after we have slaved over it and cooked it. one day i'm going to say something . oh help!

have a good night tonight sweetie. xxxx

Poor thing! Having just endured a sick Christmas, I can sympathise - but our aches and pains were nothing like Small Sprogs. 2009 can only get better!

Thinking of you, hope you all get a better sleep tonight.

Good luck in Devon and good for you not getting fraught. This *in law* thing is world wide, isn't it? Seems an impossible relationship really.
Sorry Small Sprog had to go back to hospital again.

Fingers crossed SS is through the worst of it. Whenever I used an inhaler, I went a bit hyper - it feels really weird.

You must be tired from the worry and lack of sleep. Don't forget to take care of you too.

Hope it goes well in Devon. And hope small sprog feels better soon and calms down!

Liz Hinds said...

Oh dear.

Hope the visit to devon went well and that you're home and beginning to relax again now.

Husband also has a remote controlled helicopter. Perhaps they should get together and having helicopter races.

Mean Mom said...

Sorry about you and small sprog having to repeat the hospital dash. I do hope that he is better, now and that today's visit went OK.

Oh I hope your 2009 pans out better.........Mother In Law and Devon in one swipe, dear lord, it would do me in.

Mine lives in Zummerset, and staying there ages me about two decades. I have every sympathy.

I have actually thought about writing a blog totally about my Ma In Law, although I am too loyal to HWMNBO, it's his Ma so I have to pull back sometimes.

Hope you have a good trip.

Letty ;0) and Happy New Year....
