What's been going on...

Sunday night, Pablo was running down the basement stairs and jumped the last two steps. He hit his scarline on the edge of the basement ceiling and blacked out for a few seconds and hit the floor. That is where I found him screaming in pain and a big lump forming on his head. So off to the hospital he went to have his head checked out. They took him in right away and did a CT scan which showed nothing more than what his scan from a few days prior had shown. Just a bunch of swelling and blood blockages. They sent Pablo home and told him to be more careful.

Pablo is now taking 4 mg of morphine every 2-3 hours. To help with headaches. Actually, he is supposed to take it whether or not he has a headache. That is alot of morphine - on top of everything else he's taking...

I took the rest of this week off work. I am tired. We are all tired. A big thank you to my mom for watching the kids alot lately but I realize everyone is tired, me included. Pablo is getting sicker and sleeping less and that much more drugged up and it is hard for me to leave him with the kids to go to work. And now that Isabella is in school, she has to be out of the house by 7:45 am.

Pablo has 5 more radiation treatments to go. I am taking him to his treatment this afternoon.

Did I mention how drained and tired we all are?

There has been no work done on the trailer in ages. Hence why I haven't given any trailer updates. I've had no free time. When I've had some free time, I've been too tired. Maybe soon I can make time....

Isabella is off at school right now. Day 2 and she was just as excited to go today as she was for day 1. YAY!

Ahhhh...the meds (day 7 is missing)


  1. Julia,
    You must rest! Forget the trailer, forget the blog. Hope things improve soon.
    All the best to you and your family.


  2. Agree with L. Forget everything that's not totally essential, the rest can wait.
    Sending you all my best wishes.

  3. Oh sweetie! I'm with L and Marie. Rest and take care of yourself as best you can. Remember too that mommies need to take care of themselves first--it's like the oxygen mask on the plane--if you can't breathe you can't help them. If I could come get the kids to play with Gabe, I would. ;-) Or make you eat lots of mojito granita with me!

    (There's something almost pretty about the colors of those drugs. It looks like a color wheel or something.)

  4. Thanks for the support you guys. With me off this week, I think it'll be a good break for everyone. Pablo will have me around all the time, my mom doesn't have to watch the kids this week and I can relax and just concentrate on what's going on here at home.

    Collette, I'd love to meet your little monkey! :) If only you didn't live so far away! I just drooled a little when I read 'mojito granita'. Could I ever use one right about now!

    How do they decide on what colour a pill will be?!?!?!?!

  5. Thank you all for the kind well wishes to Julia. It has been exhausting on her for sure, dealing with the kids half the day, and with me. Hopefully life will get back to some normalcy in a couple months.


  6. Normalcy would be good, huh? Fingers crossed. ;-)

  7. I am amazed, Julia, how you do it all at the same time. Thank you for managing to get a post or two up independently of all that you have on your shoulders. Strength to you and Pablo!

  8. Thanks guys! All my freaking fingers and toes are crossed for pete's sakes. I would pay good money (if we had any) for normal.
