...there's the other shoe dropping

Just when I thought Nathan was getting better, he's sick again. At least this time it isn't diarrhea but he does still have it. He's got thick green stuff coming out of his trach so it was off to the pediatrician today. It was also bad timing since today was supposed to be his last day of preschool. Oh well, he starts summer program in 2 weeks so he didn't really need to say goodbye to anyone.

The pediatrician called me while Nathan was there since Grandpa took him, Matt and I were both working and doing a tag-team with Trevor. Dr. said that it's tracheitis, we caught it before it got bad and turned itself into pneumonia, thank god. He's on an antibiotic, a steroid, a nebulizer antibiotic and a different nebulizer medicine that will help dry out his lungs. It should help him in a few days.

Trevor is also sick. Poor kid is losing his voice, he can barely cry sometimes. At times he reminds me of Nathan when he was little, making the cry face and I can tell he's really mad but there is hardly any sound (really he's a lot louder than Nathan ever was but it brings me back). So hopefully in a few days our house will return to normal health. One good thing is that this is Trevor's first illness ever, score one for breastfeeding for 6 months. Imagine if I had been able to do it longer!!

Tomorrow the boys are going to Grame and Geege's house for the night and then Sunday they are being handed over to the care of Grandma and Grandpa. Mommy and Daddy both have to work all weekend, I'm working 12 hours on Sunday! They will love their night away and getting to spend so much time with their grandparents. They will be fully spoiled on Monday I'm sure. Oh well, that's what grandparents are for - no rules just fun fun fun!
