Oh really thanks for the call.....

We took Ryker to Instacare on Tuesday when he got really sick. The Dr. at the time thought he had pneumonia and later determined that he did not and sent us home. By following up with my Dr. we found out the x-rays were read wrong and sure enough he did have it. So when Instacare called to tell me that a radiologist read his x-rays and said it is pneumonia and to make sure to finish the full course of the antibiotic I just about lost it. (okay I know I should have been nice but the lack of sleep and frustration that my kids were getting sick this didn't make momma happy) I let the girl know that the Dr. didn't prescribe anything and the Dr. said it was not pneumonia...I then told her we ended up at Primary yesterday because of how sick the two were and that I was really disappointed and that I will finish the treatment plan given at Primary's. Then the girl goes on to give me a spill on how she needs to know what the treatment plan was so she could get the information to the Dr......I had the are you kidding me moment again! So its 9pm kids are tired and I'm having to dig though all the different medicines to tell this girl what we are doing so the Dr. screwed up could know. Ugh! Needless to say I wasn't greatful for that follow up call I was really annoyed.

Sick, sick, sick did I mention sick!

So Ryker and Bronson have both been sick and I just don't know what to do. I feel like every time I take them to the Dr. or instacare I just get told you are paranoid go home and have them rest. I wanted to call the Dr. Wednesday but she is out of the office then. I thought I will call her in the morning if they are still this sick.Well by Thursday I was sick of it. I called the Dr. to see if I was crazy she was out of the office sick. Are you kidding me! Okay they probably just have colds relax. Friday morning these two are sicker than ever and I need some sleep...Am I the one going crazy. So I leave a message for the Dr. to call me I'm not taking them in for them to tell me I am crazy but at the same time I know there is something wrong. What am I supposed to do.
Kennadee called a friend to go play its been a rough week I don't blame the girl for wanting to get out, as we are walking out the door finally the nurse calls me back and says the Dr. review Rykers Chest x-rays and he has pneumonia and has had for the last few days that's why he isn't getting better. So the chest x-rays they took on Tuesday were read wrong and he has been so sick. She advised me that Bronson most likely has RSV since Ryker has pneumonia so off to Primary Children's we went. Poor Kennadee was a trooper she had to cancel her play date and go to Grandma's (she loves grandma's don't get me wrong but she was so excited to play with her friend). They were waiting for us when we got there so we didn't have to wait long. They got up all set up and had a million people asking questions, listening to their lungs, taking x-rays Bronson getting a suction treatment and a catheter (oh that was fun) and much more after several hours and lots of string cheese, and crackers. Sure enough.
patient A (Ryker): Pneumonia, and double ear infections....
patient B (Bronson): RV, bronchitis, and double ear infections....
Ryker is allergic to the antibiotics they would normally prescribe so it took a while to find out what they could put him on for his age. Once we figured that out we were on our way.

Oh I hope this helps these two...

Sick, sick, sick

We droped Kennadee off at dance today and decided that we would just run to a couple stores. Our last stop was Tj. Maxx ryker wanted to stay in the car and started melting down that I wouldn't let him. So I drug him in plopped him in the cart and started shopping. Why is it when your kids get sick you think they are fine to only find out they aren't..... So about 10 min. into our shopping ryker feel asleep and soon after started burning up. So I hurried checked out headed home to get him some medicine. Picked kennadee up from dance and she went to a friends house to play. We cam back home and he went back down for a nap again hehad a fever of 105 I kept checking him and after an hour it was only at 103. I had already given him twice as much as it recommend and no sign of improvement. It was scary he woke up and couldn't walk to the bathroom he kept falling over, he could hardly hold his head up he just didn't feel good. Kennadee went was at a friends house, and so I dropped Bronson off to my mom. So after we thought we just had an ear infection yesterday we ended up in instacare by the time we got there he fever was 105.4. They gave him Tylenol and lots of it and finally got it down. Ryker was a trooper while they checked him out.

After chest x-rays and 4+ hours the Dr. said it was just a bug and to bring him back if he gets worse. So now I just feel like a crazy over reacting mom.

Sick, Sick

There is nothing worse than getting woken up at 3am by a 3 year old screaming that their ear hurts. There is nothing you can do but crawl in bed with them and call the Dr. as soon as the office opens. So that what we did. Sure enough Ryker had an ear infection. Hopefully a week of medicine and we will be good to go.

Spring is in the air

Ryker got a scooter for christmas along with a sweet helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads all with spiderman on them. He discovered it in the top of his closet a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to get it out. It finally got warm enough so he loaded up on all his gear and he was off to ride his scooter for the first time. He loved it! It was a little cold hence the sweet "moon boots" pooh bear rocks!

(I wish you could see this whole blanket it deserves a post in itself. Nick Aunt is amazing at making quilts and sent this to baby B when he was born. It has the cutest monsters. I wish you could see the fun chinelles and minky it has on it, and not to mention all the quilting detail was done by hand.)

Bronson loved his first walk in the stroller he was smiling the whole time until he got cold because it started to get windy. Oh how I have missed the sun please come back again soon.

Poor Bronson has a cold and is not happy about it. Nick took him to the Dr. and she said just to watch him at this point it is just a cold.

Bronson's Blessing Day

Bronson's blessing day was great we were able to spend it with 150 friends and family. What a greater day to have a blessing then the day of V-day, a missionary farewell and his Uncle Jackson's missionary homecomming.

Food, Food Yummy Food

( I'm pretty sure he is thinking what is this stuff, it is nasty!)

Bronson is growing like a weed, he acts as if he is always hungry we thought we would try some rice cereal to see if that helped him go longer than eating every 2 hours. Well needless to say he could have cared less about the food and wanted his bottle back. Better luck next time.

Happy Valentines Day!

For a little fun I took the kids to Dick's Market to make their own cakes. Even though they ended up in the trash later tonight they still had fun.

Sweetheart 5K

Today the rec. center had a 5k you could run with your sweetheart so I did. I ran with my workout sweetheart that I was able to run a 5k with today. Thanks mom for being my workout buddy. Its great to know I get to see my mom almost everymorning to workout. She did awesome I have to brang and say she placed 8th in her age group (that was far from last place). Way to go mom!

(Kennadee and Sophia ready for their Valentine's party at Dance)
It all started with Kennadee she kept saying her tummy hurt but acted fine. Me being the great my I am sent her off to school. When I went to pick her up only 3 hours later her teacher mentioned kennadee wasn't herself today. She hoped in the car we came home for lunch and she acted just dandy. She was so excited she got a new outfit for dance because it was close to Valentines day. Kennadee goes to dance her teacher says she did great today and is learning really well. We take her friend home we carpool with and head home. Once we got home Kenn laid down she has had a long do. So I still go on with our daily Tuesday. She falls asleep and after about 30 min. I realize she has a fever the poor girl is pink as can be so I woke her up and gave her some Motrin. Well her fever came down a little but not much so off to instacare we go. Sure enough after few exams Kennadee has strep. I learned that kids don't normally complain at this age of their throat hurting the complain about a tummy ache. Well thats good to know for next time. Sorry to all the kids I exposed to strep....shhh this can be our little secret.
