Tuesdays With Tyler

On Saturday I hurt myself playing in the pool with Tyler, with my right bicep muscle getting the worst of it.  I have been slowly improving but I have had to limit the use of my arm.  I usually put Tyler to bed but there was no way I was going to be able to lift him from rocking chair to bed.  I told him as we watched his “wind down” DVD that I loved him very much but that I had hurt my arm and Daddy would be putting him to sleep.

“You hurt your arm?  Where?  Let me kiss it.”  I showed him where my injury was.  He kissed my arm and stroked it with his little hand.  As we watched his show he stroked my hand.

I’m overwhelmed and so thankful for this compassionate, beautiful little boy I have.  He is such a nurturing…person!  Here’s hoping he can one day kiss all of my boo boos away.

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
