I know I have mentioned on several occasions that keeping my face free of scratches is big on my list of priorities. Vain, yes I am. I put a lot of effort into caring for my skin and the last thing I need is a bunch of scars on my face.
The rest of my body is scarred from Tiara but I have been able to save my face for the most part, that is until yesterday.
Last night I was finally sitting down for the evening to watch television at about 8:45. I had already completed the medicine, gotten Tiara ready for bed and I plopped into my favorite corner spot of the couch. I had taken out my contacts so I was wearing my reading glasses when all of the sudden without any warning Tiara swiped at my face. I have no idea why and I was totally unprepared, I never saw it coming. She was sitting next to me half drugged and almost asleep and next thing I knew her hand flew at my face. She knocked off my glasses and they fell to the floor. I was totally shocked but it was over as quickly as it started.
I didn’t even think she had gotten my forehead until I got up to get some water. As I passed the mirror hanging over the fireplace I saw that I had a big bloody scratch in the middle of my forehead. Ohhh, I was so mad! Then Tabitha came into the room and saw my face. I pointed at my forehead and she said “I can see it Mom.” She had already helped me with Tiara a bunch that night but after getting her own injuries she was done helping for the night.
Of course Lou was working because it was the last day of the month. He actually didn’t get home until 1am. I hate when he gets home that late because I constantly wake up to see if he has made it home yet. Once he gets home I wake up every half hour or so to see if he has gone to bed. He doesn’t sleep enough, so I usually force him to bed by 2am if he has to work early in the morning. Yep, he can function on 4 hours of sleep and then work a 12 hour day at his job.
Got off track……
Anyways I put a bunch of Neosporin on my face and am hoping it won’t scar. Guess I could always go back to wearing bangs?
And no Tiara isn’t doing better today. She spent the first 30 minutes of her morning telling Lou “I hate you” and kept throwing crayons at his face. He finally looked at me and said: ” Tiffani we have to drug or her something. Really we can’t handle this much longer.”
“I know, it’s getting scary!” The good news is she has an appointment at UCLA on Thursday with her neuro-psychiatrist and I am praying she will be able to help.
Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!
