One. I haven't been around this week that much. Yes I have posted (scheduled), but yesterday I was able to sit down,r ead my favorite blogs and catch up with my bloggy friends. Why haven't I been around that much this week? My girls have RSV. Yes it is THE WORST. The girls started getting sick on Friday or Saturday. By Sunday, they were pretty bad and Monday was worse. We hoped that our pediatrician was open on Monday, but no such luck. We even considered Urgent Care.
Tuesday morning we called the doctor and the girls were seen Tuesday afternoon. After several tests (ears, throat, listening to the chest, swabs, etc.), it was discovered that they have RSV. It makes me mad that someone brought their child to daycare knowing how sick they were (whether they knew their child had RSV or not) and it spread to others. And on top of it, Avery has an ear infection too. Plus she lost weight since her 12 month check up. Total bummer all around.
Avery is on antibiotics as well as a nebulizer (breathing treatment). Sutton is on the breathing treatment as well. We have to do the treatment every 4 hours until their cough gets better. Once it gets better, we can space out the treatments more and more. The girls don't mind it THAT much, but Avery fights it more than Sutton.
I put Avery's paci in while doing the treatment and she sits more calmly. Just as a piece of advice to other moms who might be in the same situation as we were/are.
Two. My husband leaves to Minneapolis on Sunday. That means 6 days ALONE with my girls. Ok not alone because I have family coming over to hang out some of the day. But it is so crazy to do it all alone for a week. Last time I did this was when Rory went to London when the girls were 5 months old. That trip was brutal for me since the girls relied on us SO much more. But we get to have grandma (the girls grandma) come over and cook us some dinner (yum), the other grandparents visit us and maybe an auntie visit too. Plus Stacey is going to come hang out with us. Definitely feeling the love here.
Three. I am looking for another concealer since my YSL Touche Eclat is so expensive (read $42). A few ladies have talked about their love for this concealer. Does anyone have experience with this one? What do you think? Others you might suggest?
Amy suggested I watch Gilmore Girls and even though I am only 5 episodes in, I am loving it. I never jumped on the show when it was originally on. Just like with Gossip Girl and I LOVED that show. I needed something to watch at the gym and in between my regular shows and this is a great choice. If you haven't seen it (I can't be the only one who hasn't), I would recommend you start it.
