Or more accurately, out and down, as in: my back went out and I'm down for the count. I'm starting to improve, but I've been flat on my back for a bit, so haven't even been able to use this "time off" to stitch. So, so frustrating.
The girls are having their first experience with nurse maiding. Tiger Lily was a champion nurse maid. I rarely get sick, maybe once every four years or so, but when I did, she stuck to me like glue. These two have been a bit confused by the strangeness of me being in bed a lot, but they're being good and learning their nursing duties.
But we need more work on... allowing mom to breathe her own air. We don't need our noses to be half an inch apart.
And also not stealing the heating pad when mom gets up.
Overall grade: B+
Not bad for a first effort, at only a year old. Hopefully, things will be mostly back to normal by the weekend.
