So, so, so happy it’s Friday! This week has been a doozy! It was 3 against 1 around here for a few days as Robert was traveling for work. Combine that with some spring colds and freak accidents and we’re all glad this week is over!
The fun started last weekend when Maxwell woke up on Saturday night with the worst case of croup he’s ever had. We were doing everything we could, including putting him in the steam shower, and he just could not get a good breath. It was honestly really scary. We made it through the night though and went up to the doctor first thing Saturday morning…
ha! That picture makes him look a lot worse than he actually felt! He was doing much better by the light of day.
Spencer was also getting a cold with tons of drainage, coughing and wheezing so the doctor gave him a Zpac and told us to be sure to use his albuterol inhaler every 4 hours. At this point, Samantha was still thankfully cold-free!
We made it through the weekend but Samantha started to sound all stopped up and congested.
I can’t imagine how she would have picked up any germs around here?? 😉
Because of the congestion – which really has been coming out of her eye more than her nose, eww – she’s been a terrible sleeper. No fun for me, especially when Robert is out of town. I had a breakdown on Tuesday night calling Robert in hysterical sobs…I was just so tired. Sorry, Robert. It had been a long two days that also included Spencer falling off a chair and almost busting his head open. Maxwell tripping getting into bed and almost busting his chin open. Spencer getting a bloody nose from (I’m guessing?) the albuterol treatments and allergy medicine we’ve had to give him. Needless to say, I was done.
But, we survived. Robert came home. Life goes on.
It’s all worth it for these cute boys…
and this sweet baby girl…
Have a great weekend!
