Dinner was delicious!
Riley could not get enough.
After having his fill he sat and contemplated his meal from the safety of his wheelchair.
Then perhaps dinner was not quite sitting right and back it came.
The first warning arriving when his leg tremors appeared to be motorized.
Everywhere! Remember The Vomitorium
from the movie Stand By Me
The scene had horrified me, little did I know how close to my reality it would become.
Trying not to slip across the tile and spread the stuff more than absolutely necessary,
I rush Riley to the shower.
Daddy has removed the wheelchair and all contents to the lanai.
Ronan has retired to a corner of the couch he hopes will not be reached by the shower Riley is causing, barricading himself behind the cushions and immersing himself in Ben 10: Ultimate Alien
Soon, the floor is piled here and there with discarded clothes, burp cloths, towels, sheets and diapers.
The washing machine is again hard at work. Daddy and Mommy run around in various states of undress. Ben 10 gets a little louder.
The wheelchair is unrecognizable as each part that could be dismantled is strewn across the lanai.
The hose runs at full blast across the various pieces.
Somehow the stuffed frogs are spared.
Riley’s medications refuse to stay down. By 4:35 am we are all worn out but still hear his reaction to a muscle spasm triggering seizure #81. No stopping it now without anti-seizure drugs in his system.
Diastat to the rescue. Event ceases by 4:44 am.
Riley finishes this with a great big yawn,
as if to say “Oh, glad that’s over, I’m a little tired now.”
Daddy goes off to a full day of work after this eventful night.
No idea how he manages that.
Riley has the muscle tone of a wet blanket.
and horseback riding at NEC
Waiting by the door,
Ronan cannot wait to get to Vacation Bible School.
Wheelchair needs to be reassembled.
Another day in the Life of Riley.
