Update: Sickness

We are much better! Finally this thing is on it's way out. Both boys continue to cough a little bit. Gracyn  ended up having RSV, but he cleared it up on his own with out any meds - yeah! Asa immediately felt better after getting his ear tubes last Wednesday. You could see the relief on his face when he woke up after the procedure. As far as the procedure it went well, they also were able to get an EKG done on him and his annual bloodwork while he was knocked out. The EKG was something he has never had done, his prior pediatrician did not ever have one done when he was born (and me being overwhelmed and naive at the time I never pushed), hence one of the many reasons we no longer see him. We have tried for 3 years to get one on him, but he hates those darn sticky things! So it was a battle that his Cardiologist didn't feel we needed to have because everything sounded okay, he just wanted the solidarity of the test. Ace's ENT Doc did say he had some pretty yucky fluid in his ears and a lot of wax and that he probably should of had tubes awhile ago, but we've never been able to confirm an ear infection for him so how would we know... I can't say enough about how wonderful everyone was in the pediatric same-day surgery unit. They were outstanding, particuliarly the Child Life Specialist. Her name was Jenna and she made everything more then comfortable and accomadating. She also kept a very nervous Mommy from bursting into tears, never sing "You Are My Sunshine" when your child is being put to sleep! ABC's is a much better choice....

So we are on the mend, still no snow in sight up here in Northern New England. It's been quite mild with a few days this week and last in the upper 40's. Hey I'll take it, it makes the winter blahs not so blah-y. I head to Salt Lake, UT in a couple weeks for a Trade Show, looking forward to getting out of dodge for a few days and leave the kids in the capable hands of Daddy ;-)
