To lighten the mood a little since I threw all that at ya'll.... here is a happy funny ending to our night before I close...... He is in bed....scratching his head or rather... rubbing his head where the scar and stitches still are and he calls me over to the bed to scratch for him. Scratching is really rubbing... no fingernails involved.. he feels better about me doing it so he doesn't mess anything up. I don't need a whole other situation to arise out of nowhere...if you know what I mean! So I go over there and he tells me .... you ready for this... " I think I have Lice".... hahahahahahaha... I was like..."WHAT?.... Alex... you haven't been in contact with anyone for you to get Lice". "We are in a hospital"..... He said..."YES I HAVE!". What he doesn't understand is that his scalp is healing and the scabs are drying up and it's itchy.... he automatically assumes he has bugs in his hair...hahahahahaha!!! I LOVE IT... YOU CRAZY KID!! Sooooo to ease his mind... I said I would go get his nurse and let Miranda check him which made him feel MUCH better. So I go out to the nurses station and get Miss Miranda and another nurse to come in... told her to act all professional (not that she isn't) but to really put on a show and make him believe he doesn't have Lice. She gets out the flashlight... we turn on the light and she looks at his scalp and she tells him that his scalp is just healing and that he doesn't have lice... he turns to her and says..." Yes I Dooooooo"! HAHAHAHAHA... Both nurses finally convince him he DOES NOT so that he can get some sleep and we pinky promised Miss Miranda that he would get in the shower tomorrow night and wash that scalp. He HATES the shower because he gets too cold... it's hard to hold his head steady and sit up and get washed.... too much to concentrate on doing all at one time for him right now....BRAIN OVERLOAD....and PHYSICAL OVERLOAD lol. But he pinky promised sooooo.... it's a done deal now! Scalp washing it is because you insisted you have Lice..... hahahahaha... love it!
He is becoming very affectionate wanting me to lay in bed with him...... taking his right arm and hugging me half way... puckering up for kisses.... not just one but 3 in a row.....THANK YOU GOD! It's the little things..... and you know what's funny.... here I am running around here cleaning.... he is laying in bed and wants me to stop what I am doing at the drop of a hat and lay in bed with him.... for a split second my automatic response was "one minute".... NO LISA....STOP....DROP....AND GET IN THAT BED WITH THAT PRECIOUS BABY BOY! See.... it's soooo easy to get back into that routine of where I put him on hold because I am in the middle of something.... NO! And all of you listen to me good.... STOP... DROP... and DO whatever it is that those young ones want you to do! I realized tonight I hadn't pulled my bible out in days.... WRONG....get in it...stay in it.... THAT'S WHERE IT'S AT! It's easy to get caught up in routines people.... that's the devil knocking... don't let him in! He wants you to forget about the things that are important in your life...... STOP, DROP and DO! Don't sweat the small stuff....LOVE ONE ANOTHER.... enjoy family and friends....let petty stuff go! Alex Michael Ross is ALIVE and that my friends is truly A MIRACLE OF GOD and I hope you all learn from this.... LIFE CAN CHANGE IN A SECOND and I am only ONE of many many many in the news to be lucky enough to tell you about it!
