Did you know if you write the word SEX, in a status, you have automatically placed yourself on a Facebook Bot radar, and your post will be monitored for violations of Community Standards? Yep, my post the other day…violated Community Standards. I’m now on a No Sex list; which frustrates Merrill…verily. I find it amusing that the post wasn’t even about SEX, but Facebook made it about SEX. So, if you see, “SEX” randomly sprinkled in a status, just know that I’m just being defiant. Sex and Asthma may not mix, but in this post….they do. What are ya gonna do?
Ya know, I don’t mind being up all night in the recliner. I don’t mind the gentle rocking of her racking little body as she places her head on my shoulder, while we are both covered with a large down quilt. I don’t mind placing her (and his really) little body in the space between hubby and I, so that I can monitor their breathing in my sleep. I don’t mind any of that. Only another Pediatric Parent will understand what the 0 to 60 chest rev is like, as you desperately try to intervene before the condition takes off. Truth be told, I’m getting pretty good at identifying the warning signs. I am rarely caught off guard..anymore, but the mommy guilt, of giving all three the condition….is killing me.
Pediatric Asthma is my nemesis. If I were the Lone Ranger, Asthma would be the Non Lone Ranger….LOL…what do you want? She’s resting, but it took me until 4am to get her there. I don’t think I have the strength to do this again. I can’t. I won’t. My son told me the other day, “I love you way more mommy” and I know that to be not true. I carried him for 9 months, and I still carry him today. I am a mommy, superhero of all things nefarious, but asthma has come damned close to defeating me. I guess that’s where you come in. Anyway, I gotta go. Final 1 of 3 is today. I think I can….Naw….I GOT THIS. If I could whoop asthma’s butt as easily….we’d have a Wonderful Life. Be Blessed. Remember you set the Tone, you ARE the Example. BE KIND to each other. Show GRACE and MERCY to all those who cross your path today. With your Daily Affirmations complete, enjoy your SEX Wednesday.
