We also had a snafu on Sunday night when Stephen's cycler (his dialysis machine) died. Thankfully they didn't want us to do manual dialysis, which would have meant we would have had to drain and fill him every hour throughout the night, but instead, let us skip one night. I thought it would great because if Stephen didn't sleep, I could just bring him into bed with us and snuggle, but alas, that didn't work either.
Luckily the weather is beautiful today so we walked down to Shirlington (our local spot with cafes, bars, restaurants, shops, theaters, and the grocery store.... I love our neighborhood!) for coffee and breakfast and Stephen is having a great time sitting in his stroller playing. And the little French store was having a sale for Bastille Day, so we got a new little monkey blankie which he seems to really love. Right now he's got his elephant wabanub and his monkey blankie shoved in his face :) If only he could talk and then I could just bribe him to sleep!!! Or I guess better yet, tell Mommy what hurts.
