The past 7 days we have been caring for 2 very sick children. Davis came down with a horrible bug and couldn't fight it off. It lasted 5 days and took 3 ER visits until he started to get better! After IV fluids, much needed zofran and TLC he is finally feeling better. Problem is...he now has a hernia and communicating hydracele in his left testicle. We have seen the urologist and Davis will have to have surgery to fix the problem. We were scheduled to have it today, but Reese came down with the bug. So since Wednesday I have been cleaning up more throw up and diareah from her! Poor babies! Oh, and for 2 days straight the dog had diareah all day in the house! Really?!?!?! I can't take it anymore!
I have rescheduled Davis' surgery for Monday June 8. Why wait? Well, this swine flu thing makes me not want to go to the hospital unless it's an emergency. Dr. says if he isn't in pain and isn't showing signs of swelling we will be fine to wait. I would rather not put him or us in a situation where we could potentially get sick again! Especially since we basically live in Mexico (oops, did I say that out loud?)
So, this weekend we are laying low. Hoping to get everyone better and get a break! I have been inside this house or at a hospital or Dr office since last Friday. I need a break! It's a good thing I don't work anymore...who the heck would have taken care of the kids for a full week? Thank you Jarrett, for letting me stay at home with the kids and give them the love, attention and care that they need and deserve. I love you for that!
