The Sad Truth

The sad truth is, all that's left of that beautiful present in the last post is the label. When you get your baby a lame present like an ear thermometer and two weeks before Christmas he gets Bronchiolitis, you should probably open the present early and use it. It came in surprisingly handy at 3 am! So much easier than what we were doing before!!! And he will still have a few presents to open Christmas morning. ;)


Poor baby has Bronchiolotis (that could be caused by RSV!!!) and Sunday night we spent a couple hours in the ER, where he was given a breathing treatment. Fortunately the breathing treatment cleared him up and they sent us home with our own precription for a neublizer, which we now call his "monster face." He screamed through the first few times, but is getting used to it now. Hopefully we will only have one or two more days left. If it is RSV though it could be a few days longer unfortunately. The good news is, he is generally in a great mood, he's sleeping surprisingly well in his carseat all night, and Paul had yesterday off so we spent a sick day mostly in PJs in front of the tv. I'm hoping this will all clear up before Christmas!

Oh I remember those fabulous days! Last year that was us! It is actually great that he cries through it! It helps get the medicine into his lungs and it will work better! Hope he feels better!

Yes! We will be there on Saturday but it will be a fly in fly out trip! We are doing Christmas with Matthew's family on Saturday and Sunday so we are going to leave Temple at 2:00 go to the game at 6:00 and drive back to temple after! It is going to be CRAZY!

We have that monster face. Surprisingly only Gavin has had to use it and it was when he was a baby....but I remember it well and it was sad and awful. Hope Charlie is feeling better.
