Jet had a better night last night. He passed out asleep at 9:30, woke up at 12:30, and when I finished feeding him he just went back to sleep. He woke up again at 1:30, sneezing, and since I'd spent exactly ten minutes in his room and started a running nose, mild asthma, and coughing, I figured he might have been having the same problems I was having, but on a smaller scale. John started opening the window on the far end of the shelves of books in just the last week, and I guess all the dust off those books was blowing right at Jet's crib and my rocking chair.

So we have yet another factor, and I realized, last night, that every time in the last week that I went back to our room to go back to sleep, I was having to blow my nose, simply from my short visit to Jet's room. We're getting an air filter for the room plus those attracting dust clothes, so I can run one over the books and get all that stuff out. I'm probably dumping all his bedding into the wash today, too. Might as well take care of all of it at once.

As the telling point, last night, when Jet woke up, we put him back to sleep in his car seat and tucked him in our closet which is relatively dust free because it's near one of the air intakes and the house filters are good about filtering the air that's in the house. It's just no good for dust that has already settled somewhere. Jet slept until nearly 6 am. Which probably means he was waking up, in part at least, due to all that.

It's unfortunate that John isn't as sensitive as I am to the air borne particles, as I'd made mention of needing an air filter a few months ago, and at first, he was uncomfortable with getting the one I'd thought about getting as it was pretty expensive, and when I said I'd gladly go with any HEPA filter, he'd said sure, but we never really got one. I should have pushed harder, and he was sad last night that he'd blown it off because he does know how hard it is for me to ask for something that is expensive. So we were both pretty sad last night, but we decided that we're going to get one today and that was that. No use dwelling on the past when we can do stuff now.

I kind of hate the fact that I am so quiet about things that bother me. Even when I do say something, it's not that forceful. Like my wrist... it's not getting any worse, from what I can tell, but it's also not getting better all that quickly. Especially for the middle of the night feedings, I'm having John get Jet, at least, so I don't have to pick him up. I kind of want to see a doctor, but I don't have a main doctor, yet, and not really anyone I can just make an appointment with to see. Quite the contrast to interviewing doctors for Jet and setting all that up.
