Hi ladies! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! And all other holidays too of course.



Well, for those not on facebook, Nathan ended up in the ICU again. Friday night, he went to bed at 9:30 perfectly fine. 11:30 he woke up barely able to breathe. So he went to the ER by ambulance. He was at my parent's house because I had worked all day and had to be back first thing in the morning. I beat them to the hospital. They then made me wait 20 minutes to see him. I was one very unhappy mama about that! Long story short, he was a very sick little boy. They decided it was croup. After some steroids, epinephrine (sp?), and fluids, he was doing better. All he would eat was oreos. He kept asking for cookies. Dr. wanted to be sure he could keep food down, so they let him have cookies. Made him very happy! We were discharged around 5:30 pm yesterday. He is doing much better today, just a little cough and very cranky. I blame the steroids for the moodiness and acting like a lunatic!



We had a very nice Christmas. My dad got me a kindle fire! Using it now. He also got us a new 22" LED computer monitor. DH got my windows tinted in my car. The boys got their fair share too. The hospital sent home a big bag of gifts too.



I lost my job yesterday. With no warning. I don't know if it was because I called in yesterday or if they just started getting rid of the seasonal employees. Either way, a little heads up would have been nice.



That's about all for now. Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
