My sick baby...

It has been a rough day for little Landon today.  We got up after being up most of the night and headed to Shoals Peds at 8 am this morning.  He was not in a good mood, his nose was running, then stopped up, then he was coughing, and it was terrible.  I have noticed him not feeling 100% for about 2 weeks and took him 12 days ago and saw Dr. Hammond.  He said he was fine and not to worry about it.  Then today he had RSV and a double ear infection.  I had to hold him down to get an Xray and he HATED the Roecephin shot.  It was so sad to see him so pitiful.  I wish it was me instead of him, it is so hard bc he can't blow his nose.  He is really tired of the aspirator too!  I am praying for him to feel better 2morrow, he wakes up all night bc he can't breathe.  The next step would be hospitalization and I don't want him to have to go through that.  I can't stand to see him so sick, he just lays his little head down bc he is so tired.  He was feeling somewhat better tonight though.  So maybe he is getting better.  Pray for my little guy please!  We are going to get his other antibiotic and ear drops in the morning.

A weekend with T-daddy

Me and Toph had a fun weekend together.  Mom kept Lan Man and we went to dinner and done a little shopping.  We tried out Crocodile Ed's and it was GROSS... I had a funky taste in my mouth for an entire day after.  I could not get it out of my mouth and brushed my teeth a 100 times.  We got our trim painted from the window and door installation and it looks so much better and is lots warmer too!  I think it will prove to be a good investment.  We also sold the old Jeep on Saturday, I had 11 people that wanted to come see it the first person to come look at it, bought it!  I was really happy and love Shoals Sales Barn, I have put 2 more things on there and it all sold that day.  It makes me want to find a bunch of my junk and get rid of it.  I think Toph was kind of sad to see the Jeep go, he had a lot memories in it.  We are gonna go get our new car in about 2 weeks.  I am gonna get a Hyundai Tuscon and I am so excited.  Toph's gonna drive my car so it worked out good.  I went to the Dr. last Thursday bc I have been having some pain in my back and side.  One night it totally took my breath and hurt really bad.  I have had lots of pain in my chest over the years and every time it scares me to death.  I actually think I am having a heart attack, and it causes lots of anxiety.  I actually got my heart checked a few years ago and it was fine.  The kidney dr. suggested I get my gallbladder checked out bc he said it wasn't my kidneys that were causing my pain so I went and got 2 tests on it.  The first was just a normal ultrasound to see if I had any stones and that came back negative.  So he went on to the next test where they inject a radioactive die in your blood stream to check the function of your gall bladder.  It is a hr and half test, the first part of the test went fine.  I slept and they did there thing, but the last 30 minutes they put this stuff that works specifically on your gallbladder.  It made me really sick at my stomach, I wanted to throw up.  I didn't have any pain until later and when I got home my stomach started cramping really bad.  Well, the results came in the next day and it was my gallbladder causing my trouble.  It doesn't hardly function and when it does it is spastic and causes pain and nausea.  I am so happy to have found the problem, bc it sometimes made me feel nuts.  I get it removed on Friday at the Surgery Center in Huntsville.  Dr. Harriman is doing the procedure and he is really nice.  I will be sore for 3-5 days, but I know it will probably be well worth it!

The month for Love!

Your almost 9 months old Landon!!!! Yay!!!  Your growing so fast and discovering so much more stuff.  I can hardly keep up with you.  Your little toothies are giving you a fit, but your still in a pretty good mood though.  We have discovered we need to work a little more on being around kids.  You are just so sensitive and when a baby fusses on you or yells it puts you out of orbit.  Wonder where you got that from? ;)  You had a visitor yesterday, Mallie, and when she didn't want to play with you it made you really upset.  You cried and cried like it had broke your little heart.  I think I am going to send you to a play group one day a week when you get one.  I want you to love other kids and understand that they might not want to play as much as you want them to.  I also want you to learn to share.  I guess all mama's want their kids to be perfect, act perfect, and look perfect... but you know that's not gonna happen.  We can just do the best we can and pray for you.  I love you so much.  I don't even have to slap your hand or anything when you get into things your not suppose to, all I have to do is say no no in a stern voice and you cry your little eyes out.  I don't like doing it, but I know you'll be better off for it.  This parent thing is one of the hardest things I have ever done, but also the MOST rewarding.  I try and give it all my effort, all the time, and I know that is what it takes.  That and lots of prayers :)  I love you my sweet baby, your my precious angel!
