Wow, the last few days have been awful! Bai has cried and screamed like CRAZY!!! She is so uncomfortable. The cast is undeniably on her last nerve. The valium she is only taking smidgens of, is making her tummy upset. She can’t have anything in the ibuprofen family due to kidney failure. She can’t have tylenol with codeine because it makes her stop emptying her bladder and leads to fresh UTI’s. She is on everyday boring tylenol and a smidgen of valium for muscle spasm, like I stated above. Not only is the cast on her last nerve, but it is attached to the hip that is displaced and rubbing bone on bone in the socket – SHE HATES LIFE RIGHT NOW!! Honestly, I don’t blame her. The last few nights have been the roughest. She is so sleepy, but keeps waking up in shrieking pain. Bob and I are running on fumes with emotional distress, because yet again, we can’t do anything to help and sleep seems like a fantasy. Her pillow fortress and sub-standard drugs are all we have in our arsenal. I even took the girls to Target yesterday in hopes that an outing would lift her spirits – nope! She screamed all through her beloved store – we got our stuff and left. October 20th can not come quick enough to remove this cast! 19 more days of this! My soul hurts, my head hurts, I’m tired and it breaks my heart that she feels this times 1000!! My poor girl. 19 days! We will endure as always, but man this is one rugged road. May her foot be worth all this – is has to be…
