I know, I know, I haven't written in a while, a long while. So what's new???
Sam - Sam has been sick 3 times so far this season with 2 ER visits. ER visits are never fun. One reason being if your in the ER with your baby then chances are he's in pretty bad shape and two, it just sucks being in the ER. It takes forever to get seen, get tests done, get them read, its uncomfortable, G-d only knows what the kid next to you has, etc... However... I was recently asked to join the Family Advisory Board at Maimonides Medical Center and since then we have been treated like VIPs which is nice. This past visit we had a private room with a flat screen TV. Yup in the ER... In a NYC hospital that is HUGE! Sam is on the mend now and seems to be doing much much better. But I have to say every single time my baby gets sick I get the same anxious feeling that I may lose him this time. You might think I'm crazy but the truth is Sam never gets a small cold. When Sam gets sick his lungs give out and he goes into major respiratory compromise which then leads to food intolerance which then leads to dehydration and so on and so forth... I went for 4 days straight with no sleep. I'm not talking an hour here or an hour there, I'm talking not a
f***ing wink for four days. People have tried to tell me to get some rest, but the truth is if my baby ain't breathing I ain't sleeping. Even if I wanted to sleep my mind would not let me.
Scott - Scott's hanging in there. He's been working very hard. In by 7am home by about 10pm. He's a good man to work so had for his family, we're proud of him.
Me - I was off from my course for about 3 weeks because of all the Jewish holidays but now I have class next Sunday and I just cannot get my brain together enough to work on my lecture...
