So, hats off to Miss Nikki for her second, more dignified answer! She is absolutely right! I won't ask how she figured that out....or if Google was used in her calculations. Congratulations, Nikki - your prize is a 30 foot flag pole, erected centrally on your front lawn, complete with a Flyer's flag, proudly flying at the top!
So, yes, 0.548% is the equivalent of 2 out of 365. And it's relativity is Nate and his sleep.
In the last year, he has slept through the night 0.548% of the time.
If you want to turn the tables, you can look at it this way: Out of the 365 nights of the last year, Don and I have both stayed in our own bed, for the whole night, on 0.548% of them.
You see, the longer we let Nate cry (and we have a very hard time letting him cry for a great deal of time) the more worked up (ie MAD....have you been privileged enough to see his scowl?) he gets, and the longer it takes for him to finally settle. I think we're talking P.T.S.D. That would be Post Traumatic Surgery Disorder.
So, on most nights, Don and I find it 100% more 'restful' to just go lie down with Nate and try to settle him that way. And, it's just my heart that says: if I can even do one thing to bring a little bit of comfort to my Nate, I'm going to do it.
So for now, that's just the way nights are around here. But I will stick to my manta:
This too, shall pass.
We just pray, a little sooner - rather than later!
