We had a fun weekend around here. Saturday was a girl scout cookie booth and our favorite sitter was able to stay through bedtime. She was here 8 hours. She is amazing and all three kids love her. The husband and I never worried once. Sunday late afternoon, we tried a new sitter out that I found by chance. She is a girl scout troop leader, a little older but very patient. The girls loved her, Hudson wasn't happy with her at all. Then apparently he spit up a ton that HG had to clean up. He wasn't feeling too hot so we walked back into a flustered house with kids awake at 9. Thank goodness for no school the next day. I was sad because Hudson loves our other babysitters. Oh well, some are a perfect fit and others aren't.
After Harper doing so well, she has finally fallen to her latest sinus infection and RSV. We have been holding our breath seeing how long we could make it without needing meds. I had hoped we could make it two full months, we were so close. We wash her nose twice a day, use nose spray, her inhaler (qvar) and singular. Every single day. Also, we use Zyrtec or Benadryl (hello crazy hyper kid) as needed as well as her Nebulizer (breathing treatment machine). Poor girl, she hasn't been able to breathe in a week or longer. She cries because she can't breathe. We did 6 days on one antibiotic (that was for 3 weeks) with her growing worse so we switched and are doing 2 Zpacks with a 5 day break in between. Two Z packs, so sad for a pint size cutie. Everyone is holding their breath hoping we aren't in for a Rocephin shot in a couple of days. I think I would rather have had the shot today for her but kids and shots. We also have a couple other things in the works for her this Spring trying to get answers to some things. Why is she always sick? Why is she tiny? Why is her immune system so down? Why can't she eat? Why doesn't she have a bone in her pinky finger? Why does she fall all the time if the brain cyst doesn't cause it? Is it all from her sinuses? Is the not being able to eat causing the speech issues? So as a parent, you can imagine what is going through our heads right now. Harper has a heart larger than anyone I know, she loves life and those around her. Poor baby shouldn't be sick 10-11 months out of the year. Prayers for her are greatly appreciated as we try to figure out why and what.
Being the same size as Harper, Hudson has caught this latest round of stuff. What started out as sinus infections last week turned into RSV positive today. Hudson's snot is so thick and green. I feel like I could suction it out of his chest. Poor baby also has thrush all in his mouth, down his throat. Can you imagine a yeast infection in your mouth and throat? ouch. He is feeling under the weather pretty badly right now but oh so cute.
Tamales. The green chili ones are out of this world.
Seems small but those who have dealt with food issues and children know what a HUGE step that is HUGE. She only threw up once at the table and kept the second bite down.
BIG. HUGE. We are hoping for more answers this Spring as to why the food issues and all the illnesses.
He loved it!
Girl scouts is always a blast.
