Here's a video of Isaac that I took yesterday.
You should know that Isaac started with a runny nose yesterday...which means, by tomorrow...he'll have a fever and double ear infections (because, it has been about a month since his last round of antibiotics).
I'm not sure what's going on...but, maybe it's too much benadryl, fluid in the inner ear causing a LOT of imbalance, vertigo, or he's trying out a new dance move.
You tell me:
video

Now...it's been CRAZY here. Isaac is sick...not sleeping, back on oxygen at night....not sleeping...did I say that already? Eli is getting sick again....breathing treatments, cough meds, not sleeping....did I say that already?

soo much to remember to tell you.

AHH...the walker guy came. We tried out a traditional walker...it was too bulky for Isaac and he just sat in the seat. He can't have one like Elijah's..he doesn't have any arm strength to help hold him up. SO...HERE is what we get to try out next week...looks a little crazy, huh??
(I"ll have to move out all the furniture!)


THEN....today I get a call from Dr. Mayman. I returned the holter monitor yesterday. HE told me that it would take about a week to get the results....and he calls today! FREAKING ME OUT! He said that Isaac's heart never went below 120...but, didn't get about 140. (he had a good day...I always see him at 160...and 180 if he's mad). He wants to do blood work to check his hemoglobin and thyroid function...he said it's just sinus tachycardia....what the heck does that mean? Is it ok? Help heart mamas! Should I be worried...or this just means he has a fast heart beat...(and has since his last heart surgery).

OH...AND we saw the eye doc on Wednesday. Isaac is a little more blind than he was 6 months ago. He's +4.50 in each eye (I'm -5.0...and I'm BLIND..I don't know how he sees anything without those glasses on). We have to get new lenses. She looked at his fancy glasses and told me that they are too small for Isaac now. SO, I ordered another pair like these: (except, they didn't have the cool green...so, we got a boring navy blue)


Chris is working on his last merit badge THEN...we get to work on his Eagle project. I'm so proud of him.

Eli and I didn't go to sleep this morning until about 7am...so, all THREE of us (icky, licky, and myself) didn't get out of bed until 10am! yikes...so, he was a little late for school..but, he made it after a morning breathing treatment and more cough meds.

My name is kathy...and my kids are drug addicts.

First of all, Isaac! I love your dance moves! I could sit and watch your cuteness all day.

I'm so sorry to hear about the sicky boys. :( I will send prayers of health your way.

That walker is SO COOL! I hope you take video of Isaac trying one out next week!

I don't have experience with sinus tachycardia. Maybe some other heart mamas could help you with this.

Get better, Eli and Isaac!! Have a good weekend. xo

Oh Kathy...always something going on in your house! First of all, Isaac is just too cute dancing away.

I am sorry for all the sickies and I think you need to call the cardio back to get some peace of mind!

Can't wait to see Isaac's new glasses (he'll need Lasik when he is 18!!)

Have a great weekend and here's hoping that everyone is feeling better soon and that you can get some much needed sleep.

I just love watching Isaac dance!

I'm so sorry to hear you guys are sick. I really hope your feeling better by now.

Now that walker is really cool! I agree with Megan, you should get some pics of Isaac trying it out.

I think he will look so handsome with navy blue glasses...if he will wear them! lol!

Hugs to you all!
