The worst bit of this week is over now. I've done my fasting blood draw and uterine ultrasound. We got Cordelia through her blood draw. That last was pretty rough on all three of us.

I felt much better yesterday afternoon after Scott and Cordelia went off to the Eagle Scout ceremony without me. I started getting tense again when they got home, but I think that was more because I was suddenly looking at all the stuff that still needed doing rather than because they were back.

I haven't done any writing in the last couple of days. I'm not sure if any writing will happen this week at all given everything that needs doing while Scott's off work, but it's hard to say.

Scott and I both slept kind of badly last night. I managed the c-PAP all night, but I never really managed deep sleep. He, of course, was dealing with his body's sense of when to sleep being off. He got up with Cordelia this morning. I pretended to sleep a bit longer (getting out of bed with the need to continue fasting would have been hard).

Good to hear that the medical stuff was handled, sorry to hear that Cordelia's was hard. I ended up taking youngest to the doctor today, which resulted in quite a bit of blood being taken (including things going wrong on the first arm), and was very careful about how I brought up the idea, after reading your earlier posts.

With us, it is eldest with the needle phobia, although three years of desense shots helped with that (and it was mild to start with). But I have permission from them to 'surprise' them if there are going to be needles, such as if we are all getting 'flu shots. And for them, it includes any discussion of needles, or other people getting them, etc. I'm sympathetic -- I have the physiological symptoms of needle phobia, without any of the mental aspects, although even that is getting better (I had to give injections to pigeons during my uni years. I could only do this sitting down).

Ah. I think we had several years of discussions with eldest before we arrived at the current arrangement.

Glad the medical procedures are out of the way.
