Enough is Enough!

Our Saturday morning started off differently than we would have hoped. I was planning to get out of the house and do some childless shopping with a friend while the kids had some Daddy time. Instead, Graham had an appointment with the pediatrician since he was up ALL night with a fever and coughing to the point of throwing up. From this appointment, we learned that we now have not one child with RSV, but two. Our poor kids have been to the doctor so often recently it's almost laughable. It's not a good sign when the receptionists at the clinic know me by name. This isn't surprising though because in the past 3 and a half weeks, the kids have had six doctor appointments, 4 chest x-rays, several rounds of blood work, an allergic reaction to an antibiotic, 3 rounds of antibiotics, countless breathing treatments, a strep test, 2 H1N1 tests, 2 seasonal flu tests, 2 RSV tests, and 2 H1N1 immunizations. Enough already, it's time for the kids to be healthy!!!!

On a positive note though, Amelia still seems to be making improvements. The doctor was pleased with her progress yesterday, so we're slowly starting to wean her off her drugs. On Friday we'll visit with a pediatric pulmononlogist so I'll have more details then.

Poor Graham! You should have dropped him off at my sick house seeing as how he and I are such buds now! You house needs some good health and very soon!!
