At the Register: the Earth Is a Nursery
How lunch with friends turned a little bit Children of Men-ish.
And that’s all for me today, folks! I got home from the ER at 3:30 this morning with a baby with bronchiolitis. Never had to deal with that before. Baby is doing much, much better today, but I think my husband and I are going to need some oxygen to get through the day. My hat is off to all the parents who deal with medical emergencies — asthma, diabetes, CP — as a routine thing. I don’t know how you do it. I’m feeling so grateful for my normally healthy kids.
Also, it would be nice if you could spare a prayer for the man in the hospital room next to ours last night. He had lost an eye and was having some kind of crisis with his remaining eye. I heard the nurse talking about morphine and hospice. He was so gentle and patient, trying not to put anyone out of their way. Other people’s fortitude just blows me away.
