So Wednesday night I had to take little man to the ER (mind you I took him to the PEDIATRIC ER) because he was just miserable with his cold/cough/fever combination and was achy all over. They did a throat culture and the flu swap (and after having to do the throat culture a 2nd time because they screwed up the samples to be sent out to the lab) they told us both were negative and sent us home saying “it’s just a cold”. They didn’t seem to care about the horrible cough or the huge amount of boogies pouring out of the little guy’s nose. Well, I decided to go ahead and do his neb treatments at home to try easing the pain from the cough but it just wasn’t getting any better. So today we took him to his regular pediatrician and guess what?!?! He’s had croup (he didn’t have the “barking” cough because I had started the neb treatments on my own) and now he’s on the tail end of it with a swollen voicebox and sore throat and has a cold on top of it. So now he has to use 2 meds in the neb and if he’s not better by Tuesday he’ll start on an antibiotic.
What’s the deal with these “Doctors” lately?? I mean really, when a 2 year old can’t breath because he’s coughing and is so plugged up can’t you take an extra couple minutes to give me a correct diagnosis?? The pediatrician said there was no way they should’ve missed this (it’s not like croup is uncommon) and that they should’ve started him on a treatment right there in the ER (possibly while we waited the HOUR for the results of the swabs!)
Hopefully little guy will rest well tonight after his neb treatment and will start to feel better (and fast!)

We had another ultrasound the Monday before Thanksgiving, our little man is growing strong. He is weighing in at 3lb 6 oz and has already turned (head down face down) so we weren’t able to see his precious face much. *although we did get a peek at that cute little baby tooshie! Mommy’s next check up is scheduled for December 8th and we’ll see if the dr will be changing my due date or not.
Thanksgiving went well; we grubbed at my parents’ house and spent the day being lazy!!
This week has brought about some crazy and exhausting times. My mom was rushed to the hospital on Sunday night with abdominal pain and chest pains that came and went. It’s now Thursday and they found a small issue that they believe is causing her pain and will be doing surgery(it’s and “outpatient” procedure) to attempt to help the tear heal.  If all goes well and she’s not in too much pain she is supposed to be discharged tonight…. our hopes and prayers are with you mom.  We love you

On another note, I’ve been nesting cleaning and organizing the house for our little guy’s arrival.  I’ve also been on a bit of a crafty kick.  I have Braydon’s scrapbook caught up to date, I have the pages and whatnot organized to start my pregnancy/Gavyn’s scrapbook, the wedding save the dates have been sent out, all the wedding favors are made and ready to go, Christmas cards are sitting on my counter waiting to be mailed, we trimmed the tree and decorated the house (we did a lot of home made decorations this year too!!), I made a new skirt for our tree (or as braydon likes to call it a “tree mankey” *blankey* for those of you who don’t speak braydon), I am working on the tie blanket for braydon and all the rest of the christmas gifts are either made or purchased and are for the most part all wrapped!!! Phew it’s been a busy past 2 weeks!

To top it all off, my poor little guy has a head cold and I’m exhausted!
