Gracie Bug has the Crud Bug!

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

My little Gracie bug has had a horrible cold for about 2 weeks now and it has just gotten worse, and worse. We never take her in public and she spends her life in the house here with me, so I don't know how she got it. I have been so worried she was going to get RSV, but she hasn't really been running a fever. Yesterday right after I fed her she started coughing and threw up everything and that was the last straw for me, so we rushed her over to Dr. Brown who thinks that she has a horrible viral infection and possibly bronchitis. I was so relieved to know she didn't have RSV and didn't have to have any horrible tests. I have the humidifier going in her room, she has vicks vapor rub on her chest 24/7. She hates the saline nose drops, but they seem to be helping a little bit. I just hate her to be sick! I hate that I can't make her better. She manages to smile through it all though. Her hair has been so hilarious lately because it is growing so fast and it stands straight up in the back. I will have to take a picture and post it.

I went to Dr. Kirkman on Monday for a follow up and he wants lots of blood tests done this Friday, my favorite I will keep everyone updated. I am so sick of gaining weight and he thinks it might be a thyroid issue, so we will soon see. I just want to be down to my pre-pregancy weight. Is that too much to ask for? When I am this fat I feel so terrible about myself and life, you know? I need a new hairdo, I just need to do something with this body and I know if I could drop 20 pounds I would feel fabulous!!!! Enough about me. I hope this blog finds you all happy and healthy! Have a super day and know that you are loved and thought of often. I check each of your blogs almost daily. I love being updated on everyone! I just don't know where the time goes! To my cute Brianne, who has to have surgery tomorrow with Finlayson on her hand, you are in my thoughts and prayers and to Mandy who had her reconstructive surgery yesterday, you too are in my thoughts and prayers! I love you!

I hate having sick kids, so I know exactly what you are feeling. I also know exactly what you are feeling with the hole weight issue. I totally agree, if I could lose 20 pounds, I would feel fabulous! It just will take time. Remember it took nine months for your body to get the way it did, and so it will take awhile for it to get back down. But if you are having thyroid issues, it would be harder to get back down there. I hope everything is all right with you. And I hope little Gracie gets better soon too. No fun.

Hey sexy lady! I know what you're going through. Macey, Jocelyn and Makell have all been sick. Poor things. I'm so glad it's been a little warmer, maybe they'll get better soon. It probably doesn't help that I keep our heater at 65-67 degrees all day and night. Pathetic. I signed up for Jillian Michaels news letter (from the biggest loser). She's sent me some great tips like don't eat standing up and brush your teeth a lot during the day because food isn't so tempting. Just hang in there, it will come off-oh and even if it doesn't, YOU LOOK AWESOME, now you really are a HOT MOMMA! I love you, don't let it get you down! Have a great day and enjoy the sunshine-yeah!
