When life hands you lemons...you cough them up!

What day is it??

Im not sure anymore. I think its Monday but I don't remember going to church yesterday. It can't be Sunday because I didn't watch SNL last night. I hope it's not Tuesday because I haven't showered since Thursday...

Well seeing as how Monday's are out to get me...its got to be Monday

Im here at Banner's Cardon childrens hospital where I've been for awhile. Friday morning after taking Grady to the doctors for the FIRST time since he was 3 weeks old started a weekend of chaos. After learning that in addition to Grady having a stomach virus, he had pink eye in both eyes and an ear infection.

Whoa...




After getting chest xrays done and excluding pneumonia, he was still throwing up and lethargic. So we took him to the ER.

7 hours later we were home...

So my Saturday morning exhaustion was in overdrive. Since timing is a bi#%^, I had a bridal shower at my house that could not be rescheduled. During which time Emry (now 8 weeks old), was throwing up and turning purple from lack of air and coughing his little buns off.

Cardons children hospital here we come...
and here we stay...

My little guy tested positive for RSV. He slept like a log yesterday becuase he was up for about 16 hours straight the day before. He's lost a little weight because he can't drink more than an ounce of milk before coughing ensues and last for 20 minutes.

Hey flu season...why so mean girl?

Emrys got oxegen to help him breath and an IV to keep him hydrated. He gets some deep suction sucked out of his lungs every 4 hours and I cannot believe the junk thats been inside his little body. My poor little nugget has been such a trooper.







In my almost 5 years of parenting we have yet to make a single hospital run...now we're 2 in 2 days and i can tell you this- I don't like it.

Meanwhile Dustin is at home helping Grady recoop and trying his hardest not to infect Brody and Saylee.

but when it rains it pours...

I know the feeling, and it's the wrost. I'm so sorry Kristen. Your kids are so lucky to have you though! I wish I could help you, but all three of my kids are sick too, so it probably wouldn't make things better for you. You'll get through it :)
