Well while I was sitting there chatting, I suddenly got dizzy and the next thing I knew I was waking up on the floor, surrounded by nurses. I had collapsed and blacked out while trying to lie myself down. They wound up putting me on a stretcher and taking me down to the ER. What a way to end my weekend! I spent today mostly in bed. My friend called it being "chi drained". I don't know. I feel charged up spiritually, but physically drained!
Isn't she awesome? I met her at PSG a couple of times and I have a signed Drawing Down The Moon from that time. Her hair is amazing. Did you find out why you blacked out? Are you alright now?

having replied to a post earlier about how much face time you spend with your LO...I am concerned that I need to try harder to show DS that we can be in the same room, doing our own thing. I am pretty much constantly playing with him, talking with him, etc. He is great at playing alone when he's in his quiet time, but I probably need to demonstrate that my universe does not always revolve around him....it's been about 3 minutes and I'm already feeling so guilty!! Any pointers?
Thanks for asking! It went especially well, yay! I took some Rescue Remedy in the waiting room and while I've always had a little bit of "that's woo-woo stuff, whatever" about RR, it really did calm me down nearly instantly. I peed a thousand times before surgery started. I brought a meditation tape so I couldn't hear the banter btw the dentist and his assistant unless I specifically focused on it, and I did lots of deep breathing and brought myself into one hell of a deep trance, so yay me. Plus they gave me plenty of numbing stuff, which, I had asked them to. When I got home I only took one therapeutic dose of ibuprofen at 10pm and today I don't even need that! I ate a little bit and I am off in a minute to try to clean my mouth-- that oughtta be fun, lol-- and put the blue stuff on that they gave me. But yeah, it was cake.
Oh, guilt-- LOL-- how old is your LO again? Dunno how to assuage the guilt, but really, he'll be fine. You can satellite around one another in a room and be just fine. I used to be like that with my ds, always focusing on him, but part of what relieved my guilt over that was realizing that if I didn't let out the apron string a little, he'd be clingy at older ages and unable to occupy himself at all, without help-- and that freaked me out, lol, because I'm a single parent and no WAY did I want that to happen!
Aubergine, thinking of you Since this surgery, it's easier to understand what you're going through, and OW. I hope you heal well, sweetie.
Valerie? How are you today?
DS has a 2-hour delay, but his BFF has no school at all. I'd offered to watch her while her mom's at work, so I just am keeping ds out of school so they can play. I'm SO not all about watching someone else's kid if mine's not there to occupy her, kwim? No freaking way
