Sometime back I read a book called “The Artist’s Way” and it describes a method of writing 3 pages every day. The idea is to give your subconscious voice and to get used to writing daily.
I found a site called 750words.com that gives people a canvas to write those 3 pages, which comes out to be about 750 words. I’ve been writing my 750 words every day and enjoying it.
So I thought – what if I then came and wrote a little bit here every day? I’ve missed writing in this blog and would love to “bring it back to life”. So I’ve decided to give it a try.
Yesterday Nathan finally acted like himself again. He was happy, smiling, engaging. He seemed so present. After a little while the alarm when off for me to give him his oxycodone and I realized he seemed so content, why give it to him? So I waited, and waited, and waited…He cried a little when it was time to go to bed, but he fell asleep and slept through the night.
So here we are, more than 12 hours since his last dose, and I think he may not need it any more! How amazing would that be? We still have him on Motrin and Valium, but if we can scratch the heavy duty narcotic, that would be amazing.
