We’ve stayed home quite a bit the past 2 weeks. Brought back an old favorite activity from junior high – friendship bracelets.
My best friend, Jennifer and I had quite the bracelet business in 7th grade. We made literally hundreds of them and I swear it was during classes. Maybe that’s one reason my history and geography are that of a 6th grader! :)
Samuel was finally feeling better yesterday so we headed to the zoo. Nice to see a smile after 10 days of feeling rotten.
The boys are getting tired of swimming, as am I. We went for ice cream instead. It’s weird, but my kids don’t really even like ice cream. Ian had about 2 licks and was done.
My boys fell asleep in the car as we drove back from the doctor this week. We’ve had a very rainy week and I couldn’t help but snap a picture of this beautiful scenery.
Our pediatrician has blown me off about Samuel’s fever since it hasn’t been all that high. I decided to take him to the doctor Tuesday night after talking to the on-call pediatrician about his cough, demeanor, etc. Turns out his left lung looks suspicious and it’s more than likely pneumonia. The antibiotics seem to really be helping and his fever is finally gone. The doctor did think we needed to repeat his chest x-ray in a month or two since he has a CCAM on his left lung. I’ve been trying to get his records together from 2007/2008 and it’s brought back lots of unwelcome anxiety and emotions. More than likely it’s a combination of pneumonia and his CCAM, which makes him a little more susceptible to respiratory infections. He is overall extremely healthy.
I woke up on and off during the night on Tuesday and kept having flashbacks to the period of time when he was diagnosed with this. Such strange timing that I was reminded of all of this earlier in the week. Just have to keep praying about it and trusting God. He answered our prayers over 6 years ago and I know he will continue to.
Here is another song I’ve played over and over this week. This is Brian’s favorite one. Oh how I need Him!
