I hope everyone is doing well! It's been a while since i've been on here, but I do keep up with everyone on FB!!!
Me - I just finished my first semester of my job and it's going pretty great! I LOVE my job and what i'm doing. I have some of the best students I could have ever asked for! I currently don't know if i'll be kept on for the summer and/or fall, but right now NONE of the staff knows, so I don't feel so worried.
Kiernan - Development wise, Kiernan is doing great! He just learned to stand and walk all by himself! And boy is he proud of it! LOL! He's talking up a storm, he's very social, and moves at the speed of light! He eats a TON and always seems hungry for me! LOL Health wise, well, that's a different story. His height is 31" (60%) and his weight is 22lbs (25%). T he Dr was slightly concerned that he's so lean, but he said he'd rather have him lean than obese! We had tubes put in back in February and for about a month he was just fine, then he developed a cough. The cough started to sound bad, so I called the Dr. We spent 3 weeks in and out of the Dr's office and one trip to othe ER. They gave him 2 different steroids and nebulizer treatment, none of which helped at all. Then his ear started leaking a dark yellow fluid and I got upset. So, I called a new Dr (one that's been established in the community) and I absolutely love him! He's so good! He told me that the original diagnosis of Croup and Bronchiolitis doesn't stand now. He has an ear infection and a sinus infection on top of a really nasty cough. The first antibiotic didn't help the ears at all, so I called on Saturday and he, himself, called me back. He put him on a 2nd antibiotic and it started to work, but then this morning he woke up with a bleeding ear! So, I called the dr back and he was very concerned, so he told me to go see the ENT. The ENT said Kiernan had a really bad infection and he wants to monitor it closely. We're a little concerned that no antibiotics work on him!
However, if you watch Kiernan, you'd never know he was battling an infection! He's so happy ALL OF THE TIME!
