Apple was sure glad to see her friend JJ first thing this morning. JJ came again in the afternoon to help me move the crib and help with distraction. I was pretty nervous doing it for the first time at home, which surprised me. Apple cried pretty hard. Then I sobbed as well. We'll both get better at it quickly, I'm sure. As JJ pointed out, Apple stopped crying pretty quickly once it was done.
I moved some furniture into the kitchen to create a clean well-lit place to do wound care and distraction.
Narked again on Benadryl.
Apple is allergic to her pain medication so she needs Benadryl to control the hives she's getting.
Ah, finally washed the icky bloody muck away. Apple's hair was shellacked to her scalp. I rinsed for 10 minutes to soften it, then washed and rinsed twice more and still didn't get it all clean, but it's good enough for tonight.
