Busy week!

Oh my goodness! So much has happened I don't even know where to start. Something had to give, so it was email and livejournal (the two main things I do online). I just checked my email last night for the first time since Tuesday. I couldn't believe it had need that long! I am still catching up on livejournal, so just because I didn't comment doesn't mean I don't know what's going on and am not praying for you.

Jessica is still in the hospital because she can't eat yet. She is on a morphine drip, and apparently morphine makes you nauseous on an empty stomach, so it's a vicious circle. They also had to take the iv out of her second arm and put it into her ankle due to swelling and infection. My mom is thinking she might be allergic to the iv itself. The baby is still fine. She is still having problems at the site of the spinal tap also.

My mom, after some soul searching and advice-seeking from friends and family, has decided to stay down here to help Jessica even though her mom seems to be in her last days. She (my grandma) is refusing meds and food because her throat hurts, and is getting more and more moody -- we are guessing it's from the high levels of ammonia.

Guinevere went to the doctor on Thursday and we found out that the amoxicillin did not fully eradicate the bacteria, so she is on augmenten now. It's an ear infection this time, but there is still yuckiness in her sinuses too.

Jonah probably has an ear infection now, too. I tried to make an appointment yesterday, knowing that I could be at the hospital at 3:30 again this morning, but they didn't have anything until Monday morning. Now I am hoping he does well enough until then to not have to go to the hospital. Last night was a little rough, but he did sleep most of the night. I think his cold went away with the amoxicillin, but Guinevere being sick got him sick again.

Chad is sick too. He started feeling bad on Thursday, and stayed home yesterday. I hope I am not next.

I am now the purchasing and customer service manager at work. We worked out something monetarily that makes childcare possible. Jonah and Guinevere are now also both full time at the same place, which is great!

Wow...that's all I can think of for now, but I'm sure there is more to come later!

ooh! It is always with the little children that they all will get sick one after another... I hope they feel much better now and they will heal. :)

Yup, and daycare is synonomous with one cold after another until they start getting some immunity. Better now than Kindergarten!
