Marina's first bit of orange - priceless!!
Her temp got higher the other night - to the point that we rang the hospital she is having her operation at to see if it was ok to give her a bum bullet to get her temperature down. They said yes but to contact them if she started getting spots or flu symptoms. We cooled her down that night - with a cool jelley pillow and cool packs under her arms. She slept six hours straight which was good considering. Up at four and in need of a bullet - which did the trick and kept temperature down, never to return again. fingers crossed.
We spent the day sleeping and being lazy yesterday. I went down for a nap with her at nine and woke up to her giggling to herself while trying to stuff both feet in her mouth just before lunch.
Had a play round at solar panel man's house this arvo (not with solar panel man - he was out selling solar panels, and also am married woman so that would be bad thing to do and besides, solar panel man weighs about twenty kilos less than me and that doesn't push my buttons) but came home for nap time - Marina is out cold and I am watching more olympics and about to check out amazon for anything that might amuse me during the two weeks in hospital. There is only so long one can look at tubes and machines without going insane. Hospital lights out is nine pm but what to do while Marina is sleeping. Can't exactly ask for a mop and do some cleaning. Don't like mopping. Vaccuuming and hanging out washing - if I had to say favorites. Least favorites - ironing and folding the washing. Luckily for me hub does his own ironing - I used to but made such song and dance about it he figured was easier, and quieter, just to do it himself. lessoned well learnt.
Hub has MORE drumming tonight. Granny K is going to keep an ear out for Marina after I have put her down - so that I can take Shou to see daddy drum. Is quite close so think will go on bike - except that bit scary as no lights on the road home - with river on one side and paddies on the other. Is a light on bike though and Shou would probably be quite excited if I gave him a torch to hold - although I doubt it would end up being much use and I may well have to hold it in my mouth instead. Need one of the miners helmets.
There is one more drumming thing after tonight - on Saturday. Is the big town one and there is a few stalls and a bingo game where you can actually win some cool stuff like bikes, TVs and beer. I of course have only ever one packets of tissues and instant noodles.
Right, I better get onto amazon and then start thinking about dinner. Made meatloaf yesterday that am about to recycle for tonight too. change the carbs to go with it and add a different soup and salad and wala - meatloaf a la japonese.
