Getting away

Well we did, but we didn't. Mostly we didn't cook. (This was our 'instead of going away for the weekend' plan).

Ohad went to pick up food for us from a local catering place & we bought some special breads and cheeses and a pre-cut salad for lunch. Oh, and a cake.

We also had the pleasure of putting Abigail's medicine in FOUR times. She screamed so much the first time that Nomi got scared and it took her about 20 minutes to calm down. After that, we decided that forcing her quickly was better than trying to reason with her. (She is, after all, not 3 yet.) It went better, but still far from smoothly.

Tomorrow, Ohad & I are both taking the day off & going out to breakfast & then to hang out in Jerusalem. We have to be back early to pick up Abigail, but it's OK. Walking now isn't as fun as it used to be...

Bag-packing update - this is what I put in so far:
Liquid soap, shampoo & conditioner
Toothbrushes (for both of us) and toothpaste
Pads (I think the long ones are the best)

Today marks 3 weeks until my due date.

Eyes are a nasty thing to treat. We all feel so defensive about them! A very sensitive area that our bodies want to protect by instinct - and usually that's a good thing, too.

Hope the rest of the meds aren't too traumatic. Hope you've got a big jar of jelly-beans (or the Mum equivalent) at home for the patient!

Have fun with Ohad! And looking forward to due date news!
