Today has been one of those days, again. It started out with EJ not sleeping well last night (which is later explained). He was up several times last night. On one time Lizze went downstairs to get his sippy and she fell down the steps. I swear this stair case is out to get us. She is really sore, more then usual but ok.
Emmett John spiked a temp this afternoon of 103F. We had to pick Gavin up from school early in order to get EJ to see Dr. H. It appears he has strep throat. We are waiting for the rapid culture to come back. If positive then it’s antibiotics for him. Dr. H doesn’t hand out antibiotics like candy, one of the many reasons we like him so much.
Lizze starts her depakote (sp?) tonight for the migraines. We will have to see how that goes but she’s running out of options for prevention.
Gavin had a good day at school but struggles at home again. He doesn’t get how bad it was he snuck out last night. He just doesn’t play well with others much any more.
ER is just overwhelmed and desperate to connect with Gavin. It’s really sad to he has to go through this. I don’t see any way around it.
I’m sore from everything I accomplished yesterday. I have also been having nightmares every night. Last night was something about having a brain tumor and having to have it removed, but other then that I’m feeling good.
Thank you for sharing our lives. LT
Not very attractive, but have you considered non-skid strips for the stairs (we have them on our outside concrete stairs, non removable, but very effective)? Sneaking out was alleviated by double keyed dead bolts on everything, and us always having the keys in our pocket (kinda sucks for anyone else in the house, but it's fool proof). Makes you feel like your in prison, but with time, we've learned to except it as a necessary evil. Just some thoughts.
