Raquel was exceptional all day I was told and kindly saved a tongue blister for the moment I walked in the door. Simple, less the 30 minutes of painful crying post lancing, followed by a few intermittent squirms and thrusts of discomfort. I'm always in amazement of how strong her core is. When she wants to arch her back and straighten out, she is very hard to hold onto and once she starts she keeps on doing it over and over. It's always a scramble to rearrange her sheep skin and under-layering. Trying frantically to lay it flat before the next surge backward. There is always the fear the rumpled bedding will cause undue friction at her back and all that entails. Then also make sure the extra blanket is firmly wrapped around and between her legs and feet. She is so strong and the ferocity at which she rubs and kicks her feet puts me into deep dread. Any prolonged foot bashing are disaster to her feet. The evolving foot wrap has been working very well in my estimation, but it only takes moments of this type of thrashing to go right back to square one. Plus we just drained a massive blister on her foot Friday. But, she's happy now, as likely nothing transpired (insert image of fingers crossed). Renata and Raquel are in their usual nightly embrace on the couch, sleeping. Actually, Renata doesn't look very comfortable and will probably complain about a sore neck tomorrow. I'll rescue her when I'm done re-editing this blog.
Cordelia went snorkeling up the mountain with Sasha (another Czech transplant -Renata's maid of honor). Tough at the top of a mountain with her skis on, but after two or three runs in the pouring rain they did their best to soak every millimeter of their bodies. The prize - hot chocolate. When was life that simple??? Cordelko clearly went to bed happy as she passed out in seconds.
Renata was a Czech tour guide today and also had a great time. She too came home relaxed, happy and achem, much later then me. The text I received while driving into town was 'I'm at a restaurant (Granville Island Brewery) go get Cordelia from Sasha and then save your mother from Raquel.
Just in the nick of time, apparently.
