im back! sorry ive been seriously MIA!

ill apologize in advance for all the typos as im on my new phone which is a touch screen and im not totally used to it and make lots of mistakes lol

sorey ive been offline for so long , its been one hell of a month for us. nothing major just really busy. last week soren got an ear infection and has been on medication and didnt sleep much for 2 or 3 days. i got sick before he got it and was feeling a bit bwtter but now after a fww days of not sleepinf well and some streas from family drama im sick again and i thibk i have a sonus infection and im having a lot of pain last night and today in my sinuses. might need to get to a walk in clinic... anyway.... orion has been congested on and off this month.

Orion is doing great all that said he is working on his 6th tooth but it hasnt quite broken the skin yet. he has eczema on his face. we found that out last week. hes has a cream the dr gave us and ivw switched his bath wash from johnsons to aveeno eczema baby wash and that seems to be helping his rash. it isnt open and raw anymore , poor kid. soren complained recently about itchy dry legs and we used lotion on him, hut ice been using the same wash on him and it seems to help his dry skin.... funny that they both started thus around the same tume

well thats it from us thanks for reading. i cow to try and get on more often... my blackberry was doing all kinds of weird thinfs so i finally gave in and got an android phone. i love it and i ca log in and do the forums on it whereas my bb never let me log in. sitting with my laptop is pretty much a past activity, lol dont know the last time i did that....
anyway i hope everyone is well and i will do my best tp catch up and post more!

have the kids been exposed to anything new then over the last month or so? could be a sign of allergies since both of them are starting to have issues.
excema is linked to allergies.

glad you're back. we've missed you!

Hmm nothing new I can think of but I will keep it in mind.

DH and his brother and his mom all have/had eczema as kids and/or adults. DH still has dry skin which is what Sorens reminds me of. So they both get it honestly. lol

I went to the walkin clinic last night. DH wasworking so I had both boys with me...thank god for the ipad internet connection and childrens programming. lol.
I do have a sinus infection and I'm on a nasal spray and antibiotics so hopefully It willget better soon. Today I dont have as much pain but I do have a sinus headache still. last night was horrible, Ihad pain on the right side of my face from my eyebrow down to my jaw.

Hope you are all starting to get better. We've had a round of the sinus/upper respiratory stuff lately too. I hope the boys eczema clears up. It must be miserable for the little fellas.

Really quick update, sorry was MIA again. On Jan 31 we found out dh's grandma died in a car accident.... So after 2 days of shock we packed us and the kids up and went to where she lived 5 hours away and spent a week there with family and the funeral. Overall it was horrible, lots of family drama unneccessary on top of all the grief. I'm still not dealing well with it.... We were very close to her and the boys were her only great grand kids. I spoke to her mon night on the phone and then tues afternoon she's gone.......On her 74th birthday.
