Poor Landon. I really hope he is feeling better soon. Has he had zithromax yet?Augmentin is nasty wicked stuff. They gave it to Abs when she had RSV. We had to switch 1/2 way through. That stuff tore up her stomach. Bloated her stomach so bad it was seriously 2X it's normal size, gave her wicked aweful gas and some serious bad dipes. It's in her chart, the first thing they ask when they review her chart is 'she can't augmentin'.

I'm off to bed. It's been a very emotionally stressful day. It was a really hard day for Jax, one of his worst days yet. Actually, it's been a hard week. I pray tomorrow is better for him. So, I'm going to go lay in bed and watch some tv, and if I don't fall asleep with it on, then I'm going to go up and snatch him out of his bed and stick him in mine and snuggle him all night long.

Sound like a night of cuddles...i snatched Ben from his crib last night sound asleep and took him to mu bed with me.. Dh took.some pics I might share. it was so nice to cuddle..

Belle LOVED preschool.. Had a great time. Its a fairly good sized montessori. They put her in with the younger threes until christmas so she can learn their rules, the flow of the place and stuff. Then she will join the older 3s through 5. Dh.was kind sad that when he went to drop her off all he got was "bye dad" and she was gone. And she has been completely dry at preschool. Woohoo!!

Also her stutter has been nearly gone since she started prek.

Daycare has been good with Ben. Poor guy melts down when I leave, but is good for the rest of the day.

Dh starts work monday. Hopefully then we can get in a rhythm.

Hoe everyone has agood weekend!

Candace, glad youre.feeling better!

Mel, hope you got your snuggles.

Colleen, sarah is a very pretty girl. Holy curls batman!

And I forgot the rest.. I miss.being here regularly.

The Pharmacy cant switch the medicine without a new rx from the doctor. Think of us as the middle man. Flavor will help with swallowing it, but Augmentin is still really tough on the tummy.

See, it does a great job at killing the bacteria causing the infection but it also does a number on our natural gut flora which helps us digest food (etc). Thats were the belly pain, gas and diarrhea comes from. Yogurt or other probiotics help some. Consider this and see if it helps him at all.

If worse comes to worse, call your doctors office and page the on call doc and see if the on call doc will call in something new.

Thanks Jan! The pharmacy said the taste is pretty bad and it is hard to cover the taste even if it is flavored. They suggested applesauce or some juice. I have been trying yogurt after Sad

On the phone with the phone nurse Sad I need something different! I can't see his little self puke it up again Sad He is so flushed with a belly ache right now boo.

We did augmenten last year for something... the only way I could get her to take it was IN yogurt. I think it was twice a day and so she had half a cup in the morning and the other half in the evening.. It worked ok. We did probiotics on top of it too.

Hey Mel, are you still in love with your soda stream? Thinking of maybe adding it to my Xmas list.

The Speech therapist was here to do his evaluation and before she even started she was like, yeah, he has no problems with language, lol. He has a "tongue thrust" on his s's so he has a little lisp. She looked in his mouth and said it was probably from his large tonsils. As she was talking to me she said I have do the same thing but my tongue doesnt go between my teeth so I don't lisp (and I have overly large tonisils, too). All in all she said he has the language of a 6 year old.

Going to pick up a new medicine when Landon wakes up from his nap. His Dr was on call and just said to throw it away and he will call in something else! Thank goodness! Feel like he just has been miserable the last two days on something that was supposed to be helping him Sad boo. Least I know now and it won't happen again!

Tina and two of the older boys are coming to spend the night tonight! Least Landon will be in a good mood for good company!

Goodmorning. I am going crazy here at work. There is so much negativity here right now. It is starting to really effect my mood. I am about to pull my hair out. I would explain further but it is just so petty. Sorry about the rant.

Hi ladies.

Interesting day yesterday. I had chest pain and shortness of breath at work. I passed out and they called an ambulance. I ended up in the ER for about 9 hours. No MI, no pulmonary embolism, but they don't know what is causing it. I had x-rays, blood work out the wazoo, multiple ECGs and a CAT scan. At this point the only positive result was for d-Dimer, a marker for a breaking down blood clot. But no evidence of one in my cardiorespiratory system...so no explanation for the pain and shortness of breath. I'm still uncomfortable, tire very easily and am very short of breath. Follow up next week with a internal medicine specialist. Thanks for the positive thoughts yesterday. I'll kup.

I'm E.X.H.U.A.S.T.E.D.

I got a lot done today. 4 loads of laundry. Kitchen cleaned. Dining room cleaned. Unpacked from our trip. Put the Christmas tree up and got the lights strung. Baked 20 triple chocolate cookies, ate 15. DH and both kids are in my tub at this very moment. I'm waiting for him to yell at me to come get Abigail out. LOL 10 minutes to her bedtime and 40 minutes to Jax's. :woohoo: Then I think I will crawl in bed and watch some tv.

Speaking of Lana, we had her 1st bday party today. She turns one on Tuesday. :eek: man, does time fly with the 2nd kid, or what?? A year ago today I remember posting how long does labor typically start once the pink CM shows up. I had no clue. LOL. she had a great party...LOVED her cake. DHs cousin and her husband are photography nuts so I'm hoping to post lots of good pics soon.

I worked tonight, drive thru Smile it was a nice night at work, can't complain.

I was coughing on my way to work, and I think I pulled a muscle in my stomach! now if I tighten my tummy muscles a certain way, it really hurts Sad boo. oh well, I'll relax those muscles and hopefully by monday I'll be feeling better for my exercise class so they can attempt to murder me again... [EMAIL=b@stards]b@stards[/EMAIL]. ROFL
so I discovered that I am the oldest person on evenings... yup. I'm old. dang it. I am older than my supervisors.... lol that's weird.
OOOH Monday morning, I have my consult for my tubal ligation. :eek: wowza. I'm feeling a lil nervous not gunna lie. but excited to know that there'll no longer be a concern. I don't understand why my DH won't do it... its so much mroe serious for me to do it, but he won't. and I am not planning on having any more kids with him. so, guess its gotta be me... :rolleyes:

ROFL maybe I should've expanded on what cake balls were LMAO!!!! ROFL They're actually cake crumbled up, mixed with icing, rolled into little balls, and dipped in melted chocolate and I drizzle them with white chocolate or wahtever I happen to have on hand. They're TO DIE FOR. amazingly yummy. especially because my chocolate cake is SO moist and amazing. (its my great aunts recipe, and its by far the best chocolate cake I've ever had hands down).
How did Sarah enjoy the movie??? I want to take Emma, but I need to go myself first to preview it. After reading the books, I'm a little nervous about her seeing it... but we'll see.

Vera - good luck with your consultation. You are more of an adult than me, LOL. I told DH the "fix" was up to him. I said, I'll have 10 more kids...when you are done, YOU take care of it. He hasn't called my bluff Wink

It hit me this morning as i was staring at Lana thinking back to a year ago that I hit all of my goals with Lana...I'm so proud of myself and her...just wanted to brag a second. My goals in order of importance were:
1. To have a healthy baby. This was #1...even though Tyler was early, he is healthy and I'd rather have a preterm healthy child than a full term sick one.
2. To make it to full term. Did it - yay!
3. To EBF for at least 1 yr. 2 days away - considering it done Biggrin
4. To have a successful VBAC. Did it - yay!

They obviously arent in the order they happened - this is the order of how important they were to me. All were important, but some were more so. I would have been happy with the first goal...ecstatic with the first 2. but I accomplished all 4. I'm so SO happy about it.

Tomorrow is the first day of the new routine for the whole family. Daycare for Ben, but he started last Wednesday, Preschool for Belle, but she started Thursday, work for me, and DH starts his new job tomorrow. I'll take Ben, he'll take Belle and I'll pick them both up. I'm sure it'll be terrible amounts of fun Blum 3

Are crowns at 5k posts? If so I just realized I'm finally more than half way there Blum 3

Tracy, I'm figuring I am the one who is saying absolutely no more babies. DH would have 10+ if I'd carry & birth 'em but I'm done. I am one of those women who REALLY disliked pregnancy, every single time. labor & delivery, I thrive. newborn up all night, I thrive. but now I'm done. I mean, I say this, however, only God knows if I am truly done, its all up to Him, because no matter what form of birth control I am on, if God sees fit for me to have another baby, I will. This I know. But for myself, I am done. lol so I made the decision to go ahead. Adam knows of course, but isn't overly talking about it. He said "you've made it clear that you're not having any more kids" lol yup, I have. There was a time when I wanted to go for #5, but now, I just can't.
Way to go on reaching your personal goals with her!!!! Your babies are amazing!!! I can't believe Lana's going to be 1 this week. Crazy how fast time flies.

vera.....i got fixed , too!!!!!dan couldn't(and still can't...) so i had to stop my own madness, cuz i was halfway to 10 but really love the #8 LOL!!!!!! i went nonsurgical, though....i hope you have a great consult in the morning!!!!!

what a beautiful day today...lucy had a birthday party, so we walked to it....we made a bouquet of tissue paper flowers to "hide" the present in the gift bag.....we thought the tissue paper was too pretty to just shove in the bag.....what a big hit....the birthday girl LOVED her bouquet!!!!!!! it was a princess party, but lucy didn't want to wear a "costume"(and we don't have any princess dresses, just because she is not into playing dressup one bit) so she picked out her mj plat dress and didn't even care that she was the ONLY one there NOT in a princess gown......i love that!!!!!

Ooh, she is adorable, Tracy! Can't wait to go check out the rest.

Story of my life, but I'm tired.

We got crazy this weekend and decided to visit Brandon's grandma near Cumberland Gap. So 7+ hrs in the car yesterday and 8+ today...the kids really did pretty well, but I'm pooped.

I hope to read back and catch up in the morning...no internet to be found up in the sticks where she lives!

I wasn't displeased with our P.I. pictures...you get what you pay for, but they've changed some things about their software and I noticed that the order screen said something about the picture CD that was different.

SO, I specifically asked about it, the girl was VERY vague...I made it very clear to her that I was using the images for our Christmas card and blah blah blah...WELL, I get home and 1. the pictures are all watermarked and 2. they are such low resolution that I can't use them.

I understand why they watermark them and I *guess* I understand why they are a lower resolution, but I feel like the girl that I was asking about the CD very much INTENTIONALLY mis-represented the cd (and the changes she knew they had made) because I had made it clear that I wasn't buying the cd unless it had all of the images I wanted and I could use them for the Christmas card.

Am I making sense here or is this crazy, chemo-talk? I'm thinking of calling their customer service number tomorrow!!!

Sorry to get all worked up about it.

I'll be back in the morning...missed yall the past several days.

And tomorrow will be 10 days til my surgery. Blah. I got some pre-surgery paper work and it was talking about the drain tubes that I'll have for two weeks. :vomit:

Fun times!

Hey ladies! I have been sooo busy lately haven't had time to pop in here!

Mel - That is a LOT of stuff you got done in one day! Hope your TV time was enjoyed Wink

Kerri - Good luck with the new routine!

Julie - Poor Daphne! I hope she is feeling better soon!

Tracy - happy almost birthday Lana! Where did you end up getting her cake from? We got Kayla's from Wegmans and it was great!

Peg - Score on the Leap pad, I heard they were scarce around here too, but we have an Ipad and I don't think anything can compare for the kids after having that. So, I think we will keep getting games for that.

Candace - That is a LONG trip even for a non-chemo taking mama! I am sure you are getting anxious about your surgery, but at least this way, you can start 2012 with the bulk of this crapola behind you Smile :bigarmhug:

Emily - Glad that Miles eval went okay!

PJ - you are a crafting machine! I saw on FB that both you and Allie were making the same wreath! I wanna make one tooo, but I have to finish some of my other projects first. I am re-purposing a heart shaped mirror that was a hand me down!

hmmmm.. that is all I can remember now..

We had a crazy busy weekend. Saturday was Kayla's birthday party. She had so much fun and I think everyone else did too. Then some of my family came back and I got some snuggles for a few hours from my nephew... le sigh... I love babies Smile

Sunday we went to the skins - cowboys game, with those tickets I got DH for our anniversary. GREAT seats and we had an absolute blast! I don't even like football, but it is fun when you are so close. (and you have some great eye candy) BTW... Romo is a total hottie in person Smile

I am not feeling so hot today, but it could be the large quantities of beer I drank yesterday :-X. Oh well, only a three day week to get through!

Good morning all.

Colleen, you did a great job on Sarah's hair!!! Hey, how did the whole pick-up saga go?

Tracy, Congratulations on hitting those goals. That is really something to be proud of. Look how beautiful Lana is with cake all over her face.

Shanon, glad you had fun at the game.

Candace, the PI stuff. The watermark would totally tick me off. have you been able to use the photos in printed material before? Mine have always been super low resolution and not able to be printed in any size. They always told me just that. I could share the pics electronically through email etc but they would not be printable quality. I don't understand the point of even getting the CD if they are now going to have a watermark on them. I don't even understand the point of the watermark considering the impossibility of printing a pic that can be used for anything.

Mel, they are even lower resolution than before. Seriously awful. In the past, 4x6 or smaller has printed fine. Now they MIGHT look ok at wallet size. It just makes me furious that the lady didn't disclose the info I am sure she knew about the cd. Ugh.

Nicole, how are you feeling this morning?

Shannon, Romo IS easy on the eyes! Glad y'all had fun! Did you ever get your hair re-cut?

Aww,Colleen, I went back and looked and Sarah is beautiful! :bigsmile: I really liked the dress and think it turned out perfectly...good decision not to hem shorter!

Julie, sorry about the D's teething and feeling bad! I think Wade only has five teeth! Did you say your grandma is coming for TDay? Do you have to deal with the ILs?

I k ow I am missing a ton of people, but maybe I can stay caught up better this week.

I have pre op tomorrow, but today I am heading to help my parents move...FINALLy! Into the log cabin! :woohoo: I am so excited for them. Pics to follow sometime when I feel like taking them.

good morning.....

pickup for the dances went ok....i just picked max up at 10pm and dropped his friends off, and had to bring max with me to pick sarah and her friends up....got home, sarah packed a bag and took a shower, put her pj's on and then i brought her over her girlfriends house......it was an a 2 hr taxi service!!!!LOL!! but i made it!!!! got home at around 12:15.....posted her pics and went to bed.....

i think her dress was beautiful.....and i am very thankful that sarah chooses to still dress moderately......because at pickup.....holy crap.....some of the girls looked more like prostitutes than high school girls......skin tight, slinky, super short dresses with platform 6 inch stilletto's, and gobs of makeup.......HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!! i think sarah made an excellent choice in shoe's /dress/hairstyle, and she still doesn't wear makeup!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!
thanks for all the nice compliments Smile

hopefully i'll get some time later today to catch up a little. but if anyone is interested, here is a blog post from the weekend - i had some time in a photo studio and got about 300 crappy pics, but a few turned out okay. if you click on one of the pics, it should take you to a slideshow of sorts so you can see the pics bigger. i'd love to hear about your opinions! i only edited 2 of them, but i'm not sure it turned out okay...

Good morning. OK so the screen I type into is now pink.

I have a question for you Amazon Mom ladies. What kind of wipes do you buy and how often do you buy them for subsribe and save? Please let me know!

Nicole, so glad you are ok!! How scary! KUP on your appt this week!

Candace, that is really crappy about the PI cd. That's where we used to go, not any more, the quality at the one here has gone waaaaaaaaaaay down.

Tracy, love the bday pics of Lana! Happy birthday tomorrow, pretty girl!!

Cristina, these are the wipes I get...

Although, it says they're not in stock right now, they better be back in stock before my next delivery! I have it set up for every 2 months, but sometimes I have to have them sent a little sooner.

Ruth, I think some of them turned out ok. I bet you could get some great editing tips on the photography board.

Cristina, I get these http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0018C9RSU/ref=rcxsubs_mys2_product_title but I'm still at the old 30% off of $15.20, With 2 in dipes I had them delivered every 3 months. Now I have them delivered every 6. Honestly, the 20% off price is still really good. One of those refills is almost $10 at WalMart, and you get a 3pk for $17 something. OF course, I like the Huggies. I can't stand any of the other brands or the generic store ones. They are either slimey, too small, or really thin and it takes 3X the wipes to do the job of one of the Huggies.
