Wednesday, May 6, 2009 - Update

Uh Oh. . .look what I can do!

Olivia has started getting into everything (and I secretly couldn't be more proud.) Even though she hasn't really noticed them yet, I need to find a different place for my plants since she decided that she can climb onto the fireplace. I have found her toys in my desk drawer and noticed her trying to reach for things on our nightstands. I need to get serious about baby-proofing.

Oh, and I did take her into the doctor yesterday. They just called it another upper respiratory infection. Her lungs sounded good, her oxygen saturation was at 98, ears looked good, etc. That was reassuring to hear. We are using Simply Saline, a humidifier, and Motrin. Her cough has gotten a bit better. Hopefully, all three of us will start feeling better soon.

I took Will to the doctor on Monday becuase of a cold that has lasted about 3 weeks. It wouldn't go away so I finally had him checked out. Unfortunately he did have an ear infection. I asked her if there is anything to do about his coughing, because he does it a lot at night and it wakes him up. She said the only thing to do, and it's not published anywhere, is put Vicks vapor rub on their feet and put socks on them. My sister has also told me to do this. Vicks isn't good for their chests but apparently it somehow can still work on their feet. The first night Will coughed one time. I was amazed. Last night he coughed a little more but less than he had been!

I found your blog through someone else. Your story is very close to our hearts. We lost one twin four years ago this April. Her sister is now a completely healthy four year old. I understand your pain. I will be praying for you.
