Lounge Lizard, MV Style

What was Ned doing while Penny was in the hospital on Thursday/Friday? Practicing for our trip to Martha's Vineyard.



Penny was released tonight. It's been a tough week and despite the kind comments I have not been keeping it together nearly as well as last time. Husband and I are out of sync on some fundamental childcare items (namely who, when and how to ask for outside help). The doctors never really figured out a system to help deliver oxygen to her at night (beyond the nasal cannula) so her monitor will be going off like crazy and we have to suction her nose, reposition her, etc. to try to keep her oxygen levels up. It's just all tougher when you are out of sync with your spouse. We both also feel like we have to show more dedication at work since they've been flexible about Penny and our MV vacation will take a hit accordingly - both probably working some while juggling childcare without any nanny.

Ugh, so much stress. I wouldn't be holding it together very well, either. Here's to hoping that your MV trip is just what the doctor ordered for R&R and a time to reconnect. I hear ya.
