Never a dull moment

Our pediatrician is going to be able to buy the Bahamas not just vacation there. We have made more visits to him this month than ever. Ear infections, unexplained really high fevers, tuberculosis sounding coughs, you name it, we've had it. We haven't been out of the house in so long, we look like little squinty-eyed moles whenever we see the sun.

Hank lost an ear tube in November and has had 3 (4?) ear infections since then. He'll go back under the knife mid-March for more tubes and have his adenoids out. Shane had his upperGI earlier this month. Yep, it's reflux. Good news is the Prevacid seems to be kicking in. I'm dreaming about a big butter-drenched grilled cheese sandwich. Oh yes, I can feel it in my mouth already. mmmmmm Ella has gotten off easy(?) with just fever and coughing. Jake's immune system must be bionic because he hasn't been sick at all. Now if I can get him to do his schoolwork...

We're hanging in there and the kids are gradually getting better. If nothing else, we'll appreciate Spring even more this year. :)

My gosh I forgot how hard those years were until I read this. I gets better. This is great to know you have a blog so we can keep up to date.

Peace. MB

Ecclesiastes 3:13! That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil--this is the gift of God.

I'll have a nap and a clean day. :)

Yaaayyy! You're blogging. :o)

I've never gone through as much medicine either (thank God, all OTC) as we have in Jan/Feb. It's been awful!!! We went to the Ped only to be told "it's a virus/viruses, antibiotics won't do a thing." Sigh...just give me sunshine and warm weather again. And if it's not too much to ask, no more vomiting and fever for a while.
