thursday already.

the poems are taking a backseat...
as is the knitting,
the card making,
the blog reading...the blog writing.
picture taking,
flickr surfing,
all of that is waiting...

eight fell off the bike rack
at school and bumped his head
and apparently has a second grade
concussion...has been listless and
sick ever since...
i really just don't know what to do with myself...
i am wandering around
worrying about him...
wondering if i am doing enough,
should i be doing more...
can i be doing more?
is this something that just has to
run it's course as the doctor said
or should i take him in again...
gah...

it is painful to watch him so
sleepy and sad
and not himself.

Hugs to both of you! He will be fine and by worrying and comforting him you are doing the best job ever, I promise. XO

poor little dude. i'm sending lots of hugs. this stuff makes us all feel insecure. i say: if your doubts grow, take him back in, but if he's showing signs of improvement, he's surely on the mend. lots of love.

It will be okay...concussions take some time... but knowing all this does not help the worry.
Nurture yourself. It is harder on you than him.
