Bad week ..gone Wild

Okay so the week actually begun Friday last week… With Christian not sleeping. We thought then it was just simply teething. Wrong. Then it moved on to a high temp of 103.8 from Nathaniel. So now it’s not just a fussy baby with a cough. It is now a two year old with a severe cough and a temp. All plans aborted for the weekend. We are now on lock down. We got up Sunday to revisit Christian with now a 102.5 temp. Sick baby #2. Johnpaul still seeming fine we decide to drop him at his Grandparents house in hopes that we’ll get to rest the other two and get by this. Seemed like a good plan. Till the next morning when Johnpaul now turns up with a nasty cough! Sick kid #3!! Really…..??
So we visit the docs and it turns out Nate and Christian have Bronchitis. Christian with an additional treat of a rear infection. Should be better by Wednesday…
So today being Wednesday we stroll into the doctors office for Christian’s 6 month check up. Yep 6 months have whizzed by! Only to find that Christian is recovering nicely, his ear infection is just about gone and he’s growing nicely. 17lbs 9.5oz 17 ½ inches long.
So here comes the bad… So examines Nathaniel. Looks up at me and says “Let’s get a chest X-ray. I think he might have pneumonia. “
Awesome!!! My poor kid. So we go over and do that. He’s a great boy about it. Better than I could of ever dreamed. We finally get out of there and return back to the peds office. They “attempt” to do a breathing treatment on him.. yeah~ I’m not going to tackle my kid every 4 hours hold him down and force this medicine in his face for 10 minutes!! No, won’t do it. Option 2 please. So after an hour we make way towards the pharmacy. I thinking this will take no longer than 10 minutes.. Wrong again. 45 minutes later with screaming Nate, Johnpaul running everywhere and Christian’s pants exploded we FINALLY leave!!!
I get them into the van and go to lift the back to put in the stroller.. LOCKED! Really?? Johnpaul my almost 4 year old pushes the door lock button. My keys are in the driver’s seat. “Johnpaul unlock the door!!!” Ha ha ha, he thinks this is so funny. Lucky me I have the spare in the bottom of my purse. Naughty head.
Oh well we are home. Might have to go back Friday. Woo hoo!!!


  1. The breathing treatments are a necessary part of our life, they actually don't fight as much as you would think, because they start to feel better. We have to do them on our 3-year old, because a severe bout of RSV as a baby has permanently damaged his lungs. :) Just my little bit of advice.

    Hang in there mama! :) Nothing worse than sick babes!

  2. He also had sever RSV when he was little, 3 months old.
    He put up one hell of a fight. He's 2. The doctors and I decided the breathing treatment is just not worth causing him to freak out, then having him gasping for air. It's counter productive.
    He is using his inhaler and doing a great job of it. He is feeling lots better. Back to his Big & Naughty self :o)

  3. Tatty Teddy! I love tatty teddy!

My Big Boy Johnpaul Thomas
Born March 29th 2006 He's my Master Negotiator and Helper
This little man is my baby in training. He gave me the greatest honor of changing my life and title forever. He made me Mom. He made me important.

It has been a short four years that have blurred past of sword fights, super heroes and laughs.

Johnpaul is a Big Brother ask any one he doesn't take his title lightly.

One of my most favorite of many amazing attributes of Johnpaul is his idea of Honor Love and Family. He is a awesome little boy. I look forward in watching him grow.

Born November 21st 2007 He's my Determined Problem Solver
This guy was worry from within the whom. At week 15 I started to bleed. We were loosing him. It was that day this sweet one even before breathing air taught me one of my most precious life lessons.. patience.

Before I had little but while pregnant with him I was on strict bed rest for 172 days. I was more than worth it.

My image of him was he was the most Determined person.. boy was I right. He will because of this be anything he wants. Greatness is in his future.

Nathaniel is loving, sweet and considerate. He can melt your worst day with his smile.

My sweet baby Christian Michael

My sweet baby Christian Michael
Born September 10th 2009 He is my Big Snuggler
This little love. He's my last but in no where my least. He was not planned but was very welcome. He was an Anniversary Gift the best kind ever. Christian doesn't talk yet or walk but I can already tell he's a big thinker.

He is always watching. I can't wait to see how his personality unfolds... but at the same time hope he takes his sweet time. He is my baby, my last and I'd like to keep him sdmall for a bit ;o)
