Life on a Spin

Life really likes to throw you for a spin. Since my cough was still around at the 2 week mark, yesterday I headed over to the doctor, mostly out of concern for the Twins. He diagnosed me with some type of infection but unsure, also he ordered a DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) test just to be on the safe side. My numbers came back just slightly above the norm but he said not to worry..ha funny to tell that to a pregnant woman when all we do is worry. Now I am working on taking my “$50” 3 pill antibiotic and the “I can sleep and talk again” cough syrup.

Today my little man has a high fever and had trouble sleeping so I headed over to the doctor. After the torture of cleaning the wax out of his ears, a mom’s worst nightmare, and a screaming ear check they said it is the beginning of an ear infection. My guess it’s what is left over from what he was sick with before we left to visit the US. My little trooper has been out of it all day and trying to sleep but only to be awoken (by pain?). I feel tonight is going to be a long night of temperature checking and trying to keep the fluids in. Got to love the sick winter season!

I Love My Keys

Even through all of this we are still managing to have a nice visit. There is nothing like spending time with your dad and sister playing Halo on the Xbox360. Time to get back to night watching the little man. Please keep us in your prayers!

Oh! I hope you feel better soon. And Ian does, as well. Not fun being pregnant and having to worry about an infection.
