What a Week

Monday night, I slept so soundly that I didn't move an inch all night.  Unfortunately for me, I was sleeping on my left shoulder, and it was partially dislocated all night.  (I can dislocate and re-locate my shoulders at will...and sometimes without willing it.)  Needless to say, OUCH, my shoulder has been in pain since - I have limited  mobility, and it is very painful to pick things up without my elbow glued to my side.  This makes Mommyhood a little difficult, as William is a good 16+ pounds, has been sick this week, and his daddy has had very painful back spasms this week.

Andrew hasn't worked a lick all week, because he's back on the railway, and the jobs are still slow - hopefully today or tomorrow there will be a shift for him.  It's been nice to have him home, though...I'm not sure how I would have survived long days without him this week, what with my left arm being out of commission most of the week (I am left handed - this makes things even worse.)

Hopefully the weekend will be filled with more health and less pain.  He is big enough.

And a couple of Friday Photos, cause I haven't posted any in a long time...


  1. Oh goodness, I get the odd shoulder pain once in a while but nothing like that, OUCH! Hope it eases quickly and you are back to normal soon.

  2. I'm praying you God will keep the pain at bare minimum. Your baby is precious! Do you have a baby sling? That might help.

    Here's to better health for your family!

  3. OH! What a doll you have! He's adorable!

    Praying for relief for you and your family!

  4. It would be hard NOT to pick up the bundle of joy. Praying your pain, and husband's back, are both feeling better.

    Many years ago, when I was pregnant with #1 we were shopping at one of those warehouse membership stores. At the bottom of our cart was a pallet of sodas. The cart was deep. I'm 5'4" and, at the time, very pregnant. Hubby's back was twitching, neither of us could lift the sodas out of the cart. Thankfully, a fellow customer helped us out, but we laughed at our pitiful selves.

  5. Ouch on the shoulder!!! Hope you have a much better weekend!

  6. Hope you feel better soon! Maybe you just needed a slow down week!

    Blessings this weekend and enjoy that baby boy...he is precious!

  7. I'm glad it worked out that your husband was home to help you out. Sorry to hear about the arm. Hope it is feeling better each moment. Love the big smile on your little one. How old is he? My younger one is 8.5 months old. Such a fun age as they explore everything!

  8. You have a William too! Our newest grandson is named William and I just love it! I remember pulling the tendons in my arm when one of my girls was abt 9 months...sure makes changing the diaper a little tricky! hope it feels better soon.

  9. What great photos! Thanks for sharing!

  10. Your little guy is so cute. I love that big smile. I hope that your shoulder is feeling better soon.

  11. Cute baby! I hope your shoulder starts behaving. I had a similar problem in college, when I was playing crash cymbals on the drumline. I had to go to rehab and everything so I feel your pain!! I know what you mean about hoping your husband gets work but liking him being home too. This seems to be a good week for him to be home, at least. Happy weekend!

  12. That is a cute baby boy! So happy!
    Sorry about your shoulder trouble...praying you and your husband feel better soon!
