terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day
Julian's been having nightmares. This sucks major ass. Seth slept through the 2nd and 3rd last night. Lucky Seth.

My grandfather had a very minor heart attack yesterday. He's in his 70s. Late 70s, I think. They kept him overnight for observation. Now he's being transferred to a different hospital because his heart enzymes went off the charts. So he's being transferred to BAMC for catheterization. This also sucks major ass. I'm not going out there yet (he's in San Antonio), but I was fully prepared to hop a plane right now if I had to. We'll wait a few days and see what happens. I don't know his Hebrew name as he abandoned Judaism decades before I was born.

Condolences to cahwyguy on the loss of his father.

Suffice it to say, I'm happy that shabbos is coming. I'm a leeetle bit stressed, though.

Current Mood: stressed stressed

So sorry to hear about your grandfather (and the nightmares - bedtime can be challenging enough w/out *that* thrown in the mix!)
Wishing you a peaceful, rest-filled Shabbos...

I wonder if there's a connection. No doubt Julian is ultra-sensitive right now. Stresses added to you may multiply to him?

At that age, my son knew when I was stifling a laugh even when I was completely silent, still, and three feet behind him.

I wish you calm, happy resolution to your grandfather's health. I wish many little challenges to resolve into serenity for you, to help Julian sense and take assurance in the low, loving hum of your warm stability.

I also wish you a relaxed certainty that things will get better. What is it they say? Nightmares are often a sign of an intelligent child. Just another reason to adore the little jem...

No connection whatsoever. Julian had nightmares Wednesday night and Thursday night (I think maybe also Tuesday, but I can't remember right now). I didn't find out about my grandfather until after he'd gone to bed Thursday and I didn't really see much of Julian Friday before I left for work.

At any rate, my grandfather had another heart attack on Friday, but he is fine. He had been having chronic, sharp awful pain everywhere, and now it is gone. So it was probably pressure on his heart causing it. So, maybe the heart attack was a blessing in some ways.

Fortunately, Julian makes up for his less endearing moments by being so gosh darned cute the rest of the time. And yes, he's REALLY intelligent (and I'm not just biased). But if nightmares are a sign of intelligence, I'm a freaking genius. Or does th only work for children?
