(I have several pictures to upload, but that will have to wait for another day.)
Little old lady, confused as all get out, has recently had surgery and persists in climbing out of bed and attempting to leave the room/floor/building. Because wild animals are about to come in, and she is going to bleed to death, and everyone is trying to kill her.
We discuss safety. We discuss a need to heal. Reorienting only helps for about 20 seconds at a time, and then she is hollering my name again.
I redirect little old lady back to bed. Again.
She looks up at me and says, "What happened? I thought you were my friend!"
"I'm not your friend. I am your nurse. Those two don't always overlap."

Sunday, January 2, 2011
I make no promises that I will update daily, nor that I will get all 365 in by the end of the year.
However, I am going to attempt to record daily some aspect of our life through 2011. I'm sure the majority will be of Sweet Pea, but there may be other subjects thrown in there from time to time. I suppose it depends on what is going on.
Here is January 1. Sweet Pea, reading a new book and eating peanut butter off a spoon to get rid of hiccups.
January 2 saw Sweet Pea using her workbook (a Christmas gift to familiarize her more with letters). We're nowhere near proficiency, but she seems to enjoy it. Here's a sample page from the day.
