The joys of boredom

The joys of boredom

We were so bored we were going stir crazy. Don’t get me wrong – being bored in a hospital is a good thing. It means nothing medically “interesting” is going on. Nurses and doctors came and went, checking on us, but it was all talk, no prodding, poking, or worse. We were so uninteresting, they sent us home three days after the operation.

  1. Hi. I just stumbled across your blog doing some research for a project and googled “disabled families.” Like you, we have a daughter with CP. She’s blind, has a seizure disorder, a gtube, just had a spinal fusion after several other ortho surgeries, and I found myself relating immediately. We also have a “typical” daughter who has none of that and puts up with it all in a remarkable way, frankly. And, also like you, I keep a blog about it – it’s about hope despite the disabilities. If you want, you can take a look at JustWaitAndSee.wordpress.com. Glad to have found you šŸ™‚ Ellen
