He followed that by 2 more weeks of oral antibiotic's and all in all he is doing 100% better. So much to be thankful for truly.
Now, I am going to share some of the things that have been going on here personally and also with Pat and I, and I'm requesting deeply your prayers please. Last month Pat got an apartment and we are separating...hopefully this will be temporary but at this time we are kind of at a impasse. I feel as though I have already been in many aspects a single mom for quite a while though not technically so now it's just more official. I am still struggling with my own physical issues of chronic pain and fatigue, and the migraines. So between the things going on with Nathan's health, my energy level being terribly low and the things w/in our marriage kind of heading south it's been a difficult year. On top of this, Nathan was terrible sad on Thanksgiving evening...we'd gone to our church (with Pat) for our dinner since I was not up for cooking. I had taken Nathan to the CRS clinic in Phx the day before for a sinus endoscope and didn't get back home until almost 8pm. Anyways, Nathan ~and I as well~was down because we hadn't received any word or contact from my older son Thomas. Thomas is 20 and lives here in town with his dad, my ex-husband...who is politely~a bonehead.
So Nathan started doing the thing where he kind of fixates on a subject and then the next hour or two he will bring every single thing no matter what the subject is, back to that it is that is most on his mind. I'm sure I probably do the same things maybe in just a different way. So from about 6pm to his bedtime at 8 he talked about his brother, how much he misses him, wonders if he ever thinks of him...feels like Thomas must not care about him anymore and on and on. So though I have probably all the complete same feelings, longings and desperation of missing him I had to play the part of reassuring him that no, his brother is just going through a time where he needs some space and he loves him very much and to please not think otherwise. That we can keep loving him and praying for him and he is still very much a part of our family. So sweet Bella is right there in the middle of all of this, while he can hold he and let us both just pet and stroke her and love on her...she again is just a little angel with four legs! xo I can't imagine what we'd do with out her.
Nathan has been asking for one of those new Xbox One (?) is that what they are called? Anyways, not going to happen short of winning some lottery so I've told him to think of other things too. He keeps coming back to that. The XBox360 that he has, has been broken for months
