I'm a slacker...

Whew, a lot has happened since I posted the last entry.

A few days after I got home my sister in law came down for a few days to do some wedding planning. Then both kiddos ended up sick.

Monday morning both kids went to tge doctor, Avery had croup & Peyton just had a cold. By Friday Avery had been running a fever since Wednesday without it breaking. It was fluctuating between 101 & 103.5 so I took her back to the doctor and she was diagnosed with pneumonia and put on antibiotics. We left the pediatricians office and she literally went limp. I figured it was from the shot she had just gotten so I decided to keep an eye on her for a while. By 3:30 it has been 3 hours since we left the doctor & I realized she hadn't spoken more than 2 words. I immediately called the doctor and talked to a nurse. At 5:45 she called back and said it was "normal" but I knew my and this was not normal for her. So at 6:15 my couIsin, Marisha and myself loaded Avery into the car and headed to the hospital. We got there just before 7 and her temp was 103. We were in the back within 20 minutes. We ended up getting chest xrays, bloodwork and 2 bags of fluid because she was dehydrated. Thank goodness I listened to my motherly instinct and took her in. That definitely wasn't fun for anyone. I felt terrible for my princess. She was miserable.

We were in the ER Friday night from 7pm until 1am Saturday morning. Monday morning she went in for a recheck and was doing a lot better. Peyton however had a cold. He was doing ok until Sunday night when he started running a fever and couldn't sleep because he was so congested. Monday morning I took him back to the doctor and he now has a sinus infection and croup. He is so miserable and it's killing me knowing we're doing everything we can for him.

His antibiotics have messed up his stomach and he doesn't even want his diaper changed and just screams when you touch him. Ugh!

I'm also sick with a sinus infection and am trying to get myself better. Needless to say, I've been very busy for the past few weeks and haven't had much time to think, let alone write anything.

Hopefully I can get back in the rhythm and write regularly again. It's my stress relief. Plus I got a new phone and am trying to get use to it. So, excuse my typos.
