For those of you who ordered blanket sets, they have all been completed and mailed (with the exception of one family who wanted theirs sent after they move, and the family who ordered 10 sets yesterday).
So...if you do not receive a blanket set from us within the next few days, please let us know. We hope there were no mistakes, but we might have made some.
So..the other night, Miss Zoey got a nosebleed. This is a fairly common occurrence when the weather gets cold and dry. However, this time it didn't stop.
I held and changed the wads of toilet paper many times and finally had one of the girls go get Jeff.
The bleeding just would not stop and it was coming out in pulsing spurts.
Jeff Googled ways to help, many of which we were already doing, but he finally decided to use the nose-pinching option. By this time, the blood was coming out of both nostrils and we had gone through almost an entire roll of toilet paper.
After pinching her nose completely closed for 5 minutes, blood started seeping out of her eye.
Oh, yes it did.
It was quite alarming, to say the least.
All in all, her nose bled for 30 minutes. For Pete's sake, I was thinking she was going to need a transfusion. ha. And let's just say that even though I have more padding now than I used to (sadly) the tile floor in the bathroom got very hard after awhile. Bless her heart, she whimpered a bit but never cried, even when her nose was completely pinched shut for 5 minutes and the toilet paper wad kept going into her mouth.
A Chinese friend of ours has a daughter with the same condition and recommended putting vaseline in her nose now that the weather has changed. So we are going to try that. I know we can get it cauterized at some point and may have to do that.
