Things

  • Liam's breathing has been assisted by a nebulizer for the last two days. The cold symptoms are gone but the raspy chest and breathing remains. Hopefully a couple more days of the breathing machine will do the trick.
  • As it stands, one of our boys would make the cut for a HairClub commercial:
The other? Possibly not:
  • We started Luke on Methyl-B12 injections. I was pretty nervous but with a little distraction in place after the shot there was merely a simple rub of the bottom and a sort of hmm, what was that? look. I never thought I could give a shot to my own kiddo. The things we can do when we have to.
  • Luke walked up to the kitchen counter today and said, "I want water."
  • Spring Break is almost over which means Leila, Liam and I will be able to see the light of day next week (Luke's s had therapy all day every day which means being at home all day every day).
  • Those ICYHOT patches one can get from the Back Pain section of one's local Target are not an effective match for the searing pain which is the result of improper nursing positioning. Just sayin'.

I've been a slumper ever since I became a nursing momma. I just can't seem to sit up straight anymore. Mike is always trying to remind me.

Praying for Luke!

Awww, poor Liam ! I've had to do the whole nebulizer thing before also and it's such a shame, especially when they're so small.

I've found that just a regular heating pad (I like electric because there's different levels of heat) works great for back or any pain !
I spent like $12.00 on mine a few years ago and it still works great.

Love all the pictures, Leila has the most beautiful eyes !

love the 'hair club shots"...I hope all is well.

I had an old bag made from deer corn my mom made me. When my back hurt from nursing, I would heat it up and mold it around my spine section! sounds strange but it worked

I think we're starting on our 2nd cold since birth - arghh !!

I think a nebuliser might be a good idea, actually, as I think his breathing has been raspy and ragged since the first one, and i've been wondering if it could be asthma ?!?

You mentioned passports on my blog - are you going somewhere soon ? We're off to your part of the world soon ( well, Arizona, anyway ! :)
