Prayers For The Boys

The boys got up this morning not feeling well. Mainly coughs and fevers. They stayed home from school and Mommy stayed home from work. I finally got the doctors office on the phone to discover that our regular peditrician was not in the office today, so we saw one of his associates.

Tiger has a double ear infection and bronchitis. This is not easy for any 2 year to overcome, muchless one that was born 2 1/2 months early with under developed lungs (still under developed), that has had them to collapse before and that has a very low immune system.
Also, he is allergic to penicllin. I must not forget that he had already started wheezing when the dr checked him over. He is on Zithromax. Possibly breathing treatments if he does not show some improvement by Friday.

Monkey has the all out croupe (for the third time in his short, little life). He is on steroids. They both are on a Rx cough med. Tiger is also taking Children's Advil for pain in his ears.

I am one tired Mommy! Today was the first time I have ever done the peds office with both of the boys by myself. My mouth is really hurting and I forgot to mention that my gum line had to be "trimmed" up a little for the temporary crown to fit better.

We are not big on halloween, BUT I will be glad to see October 31st come! That is the boys last day of preschool until I have to go back to work next May. Thank you Lord!!!!

Oh, I got an award from Julie, except I can not figure out for the life of me how to upload the image to my post to accept it. Help.......please!!!!!! I am a little green when it comes to technology.

I hope you all had a Wonderful Wednesday!

Hey there sweetie - to upload the image - simply right mouse click on the image and click save picture as and make sure to save it where you can find it. If that doesn't work let me know and I will email you the image, but it should work for you,

hope the boys get to feeling better!

I'm so sorry to hear the little guys are sick again, I know they've struggled with a lot of sickness since I've been stopping by your blog. It is completely exhausting taking care of sick children, and so frustrating not being able to make it better quickly (we're mommy after all; that's what we do:) We'll pray that they get over this bout quickly.

And I have compared the last month of my life many times in my mind to your Summer (working-wise). As the Bible says "A time for everything." As your busy season is ending, mine is just getting started. I hope you get the well-served rest that you should. And I'm glad that you'll get more time again with your little boys that you love so much. Take care friend~

Marva, I hope the boys feel better soon.

Another way to copy a picture is to right click on it, copy the "properties" to your clipboard, and paste it. That way it's not saved to your computer.

Oh my goodness, I hope that your little ones feel better soon. I hope that you are feeling better soon too :) Praying for you and your family too!

Hey Momma! You and your family hang in there, we're praying for you!

Hope everyone starts to feel better soon, and that you get some rest and relaxation once daycare is over.

Marva- Sending hugs for the boys! That is awful that they both are so sick! My son had to have breathing treatments first winter. He seems to have outgrown them now, hoping same goes for your little preemies! Heather
