The Illusion of Control

What do you do when you feel out of control or powerless?

Me? I work.

Ben Blair is at the hospital with Maude. His French is one billion times better than mine, and he needs to be there to communicate. Maude is still very sick. Her fever went down in the night, but was back strong as ever this morning. She’ll have her third set of x-rays this afternoon and then we’ll get a current assessment of her status.

I am taking care of things at home and feeling frustrated that I can’t do more to help my sick child. I am in need of a distraction and work is the only thing that sounds appealing, so I’m going to post a few things today to keep my head in a happy place and give me the illusion of a little bit of control over my life.

Thanks in advance for indulging me. : )

  1. Sad I just saw this now, but relieved for you that she is home now and you all are almost throughout this. My heart goes out to you having to go through this. You are so string; I know that Maude got better and is doing well because she had you and your whole amazing family to support her. Hugs to all!

  2. I’ve been away and just saw this. Glad to hear (now) that Maude is better. So sorry for this. What a scare!
