I Jinxed Us!

I thought we were getting better by the last post.....boy was I wrong. I jinxed us. My two kiddos have been so sick. Just look at the picture of Tyson, poor kid, he has to have breathing treatments every 4 hours so he can breath. And he doesn't like to take the treatments because they give him a bad after taste. Plus they hype him up and he is like a top spinning off of the walls. Tyson started off with this cough and it has never gotten better, in fact it has gotten so bad that he would cough all night long, and the next morning look like he had been run over by a bus, from lack of sleep. Taryn, who I thought would be better since her bottom two teeth came in, developed an ear infection. Finally after we had exhausted all our knowledge, we took the kids to the Pediatrician on Tues and I am so glad we did. Taryn's eyes and nose were oozing this green gunk and she was running a temperature of 102. Tyson was beginning to sound ike he had the croup. The Pediatrician placed Tyson on these breathing treatments for two days and then we were to return for a follow up visit. He put Taryn on Amoxill and wanted to see her as well in two days. Two days later, Tyson is doing better, Taryn is worse. The doctor wanted Tyson to stay on the breathing treatments until Saturday and then assess him then. Taryn got a new kind of antibiotics and eye medicine. Today is Saturday and both are doing so much better. Taryn didn't wake up with her eyes matted shut for the first time in 5 days and Tyson's breathing is not raspy anymore. I hope we are on the mends and that our days of traveling to the doctor are over for a season. I am ready for Michigan to warm up so we all can get outside, feel some sunshine and get better.

On another note, we have a little over a month until we find out where we match for residency. The not-knowing-where-the-heck-we-are-going is getting to me. I am feeling stir crazy. I just want to start looking for a new place to live or to start packing, anything. ARG!

If there was only someone to take care of you! Having sick kids totally wears me out. Hope everyone is doing better.
