.Conrad. | The Update

Well, today is day number 10 of Conrad having his spica cast on and since the accident. I’m not going to lie, this last week has been hard. It’s been hard emotionally for my husband and me, it’s been hard on Conrad, it just been rough. A few nights I just bawled and bawled, not because I was sad, but because I was so happy that I still have my son here. I just couldn’t bear the thought of him not being in my arms. I also bawled because I need a minute here or there to even just use the bathroom. Conrad has not let me put him down, except to sleep this entire time. I absolutely love his love and cuddles and cherish each moment of them. I have needed a few minutes to myself though. I feel bad if I need to get some cleaning done and he doesn’t want me to put him down. He was content and okay with being put down for the first couple days, but soon realized he did not like just laying there. He wants to be up running around. He wants to play with his brothers and sister. He has now learned that if he leans, points, and says, “eh-eh” in the direction he wants to go, that I will get the hint that he wants over there. He has loved sitting outside on the patio with me. We watch the cars go by and he waves at everyone. He gets excited to go out and look at the stars at night. He has his good times and he has his really frustrating times. He gets quite mad that he can’t always do what he wants. We go back to the Dr. next week for more x-rays to see how the bone is healing. For now, he is doing okay. I’ll keep you updated on his status. Yup, those are underwear on his head 🙂

A temporary happiness.
