AHHHHH!!!  


Did you hear that??

My baby is sick.  He's got a yucky cough (half croupy half junky), junk oozing out of his good ear, green snot everywhere.  I'm so glad that my ped gave me that antibiotic script....I took it in today to get filled.  We actually had an appointment in the morning scheduled with the GI doc.  I was going to cancel it...but, then I thought I'd go ahead and take him...and let Dr. Baron tell him if I need to take him back to the peds or the pulmonologist.  I have everything except steroids....we're on our antibiotics, breathing treatments every 2 hours, all regular meds....

OH OH OH...I forgot to tell you that Dr. Mayman (cardiologist) told me to take Isaac off his lasix!  WHAT?!?!  He's been on it since birth!!  So, I stopped giving it on Monday...but, with all this oozing out of him...I gave him a dose tonight...shhhhh....

Eli lost his glasses again.  We've looked all afternoon...nothing.  I will have to invent a "glasses finder-beeper-retriever" for my little man.  He really doesn't see very well without them.

Chris is grounded. He would be mad at me for posting his grades....but, just know that Algebra is still his arch nemesis, he's better at Japanese than English, and he must sleep in Health class. (that's about it).  SO, for being grounded....that means NO video games.  That almost killed him.  He's been dragging around the house all day.  and Eli can't play games until he finds his glasses.  Both...actually, all three boys are just having a yucky ducky day....

and Joe...poor Joe....he's still at work.

ok...don't mean to break your heart...but, here's Isaac breathing....and this is just what it sounds like while he's sleeping.  OH...it's going to be another LONG night.  Will I ever sleep again?? Will I ever see my husband in the daylight hours?  Will Chris elude summer school??  Will Eli ever find his glasses??  Stay tuned....the drama will continue to unfold...

**after posting this video, his chest looks labored when breathing...so, even though his sats are still in the mid 90s, I put the O2 on him.  You know...when the belly pokes out when they breathe...that's when I have to take Eli to the hospital...I SURE HOPE we're not in the ER tonight with Isaac.   I'll stay awake all night and watch him breathe...


videothat's not snoring you hear.  That's the sound he's making breathing in and out.  Then, the yucky cough comes.  
OH..my nerves are torn up.  I'm just going to make some more cinnamon rolls....tummy be darned!

Oh no...not the yucky cough. I'll be praying for Mr. Isaac.

I hope Elijah's germs didn't seep through the internet. It sounds like Isaac has what Elijah has had all winter. I sure hope the little man will start feeling better very soon. Poor little guy. Hopefully the GI doc will be able to steer you in the right direction today. No more Lasix, wow! That's great!

And I hope the other boys have a better day today, too!

Sending you our love today...xox

Okay, I think we ARE spreading this thing around the internet again. Who cares about conficker... what about all these germs?!!

Vaeh sounds so much like Isaac when sleeping I think they could have their own chorus!

Praying that things straighten out & you can get back to "normal" soon (LoL)!
