With the sling we can't get it wet so no bath for at least 3 weeks! We are sponging atm. But here in Australia it is summer and we average 86-97 degrees fahrenheit (30-36 degrees celsius) during the day. At night its not much cooler. I feel so sorry for her.
The docs also said to keep her as still as possible and not to let her do too much physical activity. They don't know how hard this will be. She never stops. She has already fallen over on her arm about 3 times (once at the hospital!).
Michael is not coping with this at all. He can't understand why she isn't better yet. At first he was really good with her, very gentle and wanting to help, but now he's getting very mad with her and pushing her around, yelling at her and being downright mean. I have tried different ways of explaining it to him but he just isn't getting it.
I'm not sure what to do with him. I can't even leave them alone in the lounge room for a second cause he's at her. Anyone have any ideas on how to deal with this??
Tracy mum to Michael and Elizabeth
