Yesterday was definitely one that I care not to repeat!
Before I get started let me tell you about Monkey and Tiger this morning. The barking has ceased from Monkey and the fever did not appear overnight but again this morning. It is taking a sly momma to get enough Cheerios in each of the boys to take their meds. He breathing is almost back to normal. Praise the Lord!
Tiger is better, but still feels lousy and is so irritable. Thank you all for your prayers and concern!
Now on to yesterday........
First it started off almost normally until I heard a scream. I thought the boys were in the play room playing. I had just checked o them and they had been fine. i went to grab a bite of breakfast when I heard the scream. I ran into the bathroom to find the floor full of water, about a half inch I suppose. and it was everywhere! I found water in drawers, cabinets and the counter was flooded too. I grabbed out towels as i drained the overfilled sink. I stripped the boys down to their pullups (since their pj's were soaked and dripping). Then they each went to their rooms with clothes to dress themselves while I started the clean up. After six towels and a bucket full of water I was finished. The Mother's Helper arrived then. Lol! Where was she when I needed her for this crisis?! Oh and Tiger had screamed earlier because his hair had gotten wet and water had gotten on his face.
Most of the morning went okay. i was able to shower and "fix myself" for the day. i did a couple loads of laundry and unloaded the dishwasher. I was finally able to get antibiotics for both of the boys. I went to the pharmacy and gave them my list. The antibiotics, the cough med (they had to order). another cool mist humidifier 9they were out), some acidilopholis, a pill cutter and a refill for hubby. I had to go by the store for milk and finally home. Then we had lunch and I don not get much done, the boys were getting clingy. When they went down for a nap, so did I.
It was then (before my nap) that (the mother's help) KK and I realized the monitor had been submerged in the flood earlier. It was starting to smoke.......great, another electrical item to go up in flames!
I then got that nap and woke up in time to head to the eye doctor. I now have glands dying in my lower lid on the right side. Just peachy! I am going to see a specialist at the Eye Foundation at UAB (as soon as I find one). in the mean time I have many drops and an antibiotic to help with all the dryness and irritation and ickiness. My eyes hurt so bad!
Then off to Wal-Mart......humidifier, monitor and gum. Found all I needed and headed home. To make a long story short the monitor is a piece of poop and it'll go back as soon as I can get it there.
When I got back from my Wal-Mart trip......that's when everything started happening with monkey (the breathing stuff). This is not the first time it has happened, as a matter of fact his airways have sealed off completely before. With his preemie lungs (still under developed) we are hoping no long term damage was done this time.
I did get to sleep from 11pm last night to 3 am this morning.......so that was good............now if tonight is just a teeny bit longer! Yippee! We can have a party then!
How was your day? I hope all is well and i hope to regular commenting soon and ASHLEY I promise to get to the award soon! Thank you all and blessing, blessings, blessings!
