another quick update

Joey is still battling RSV:(  He is better than he was last week but still has a stuffy nose and a cough that gets so bad he can't eat/drink/breath sometimes.  Its not a constant thing so there isn't much that can be done.  

Sami is better but is still very tired some days and will take a short nap after school some days.  Her back is still bothering her and asked to go to the doctor (she HATES going to any doctor) so we nkew it was really bothering her.  They managed to squeeze her in this morning at 7:30am.  As soon as the doctor saw us his face dropped as he wasn't expecting to see her again until May.  He checked out her back and took an x-ray.  The good news: the rods aren't broken and everything is where is should be!  The bad news: the rods aren't broken and everything is where is should be:(  Meaning he doesn't know what's causing the pain.  At the top of one of her rods it looks like it might be rubbing up against her rib bone near her shoulder but there isn't anything that can be done.  Even if she had surgery right now, he can't guarantee it will stop the pain.  He could go in and snip the end of the rod off but its the rod that is moving faster than it should be so there isn't much rod left and she may out grow it sooner than we were hoping.  He gave her some Ladicaine pain patches to apply to the area to try to buy us sometime until after school is out for the year before he does surgery.  Hopefully it will help.  

I signed Grace up for pre-k for this coming fall.  She will be going to school with Sami and Summer!  But its just 3 hrs a day in the mornings and she isn't a morning person.

That is about it for now...got to get back to the laundry!

  1. Hope Sami's back is feeling better! Is it crazy to think you'll have 3 kids in school?!? I get sick to my stomach when I think about Annabelle being gone all day next year!
