I thought I'd better write an update tonight. I have just been busy loving life and feeling blessed. Olivia is doing well, although she has an awful cough right now. It breaks my heart listening to her try to sleep while coughing uncontrollably. Luckily, she is acting fine otherwise so I hope this passes quickly. Today, we got ready to head over to my parents' house to see their new swingset when I noticed that my rear tire was completely flat. So, that's a migraine, a kidney stone and a flat tire in the same week. :) We had to unexpectedly deal with that today and luckily the tire could be patched. We did get to spend some time over at my parents' house and Olivia was the first to try out the new swingset. Izzy later joined her and they had a blast in the backyard.

Please pray for Olivia tomorrow because she has another eye appointment. I'm hoping to soon switch her over to an optometrist (instead of an ophthalmologist.) Dr. W. is the only pediatric ophthalmologist in town, but Olivia just doesn't like him at all which makes the checkups that much more traumatizing. We would still need him if Olivia has to have another strabismus surgery, but I'm hoping the checkups can be with an optometrist. I actually have an appointment with one this week and I'm going to talk to her about taking Olivia as a patient. But, for now. . .wish us luck.



Good luck with your appointment Olivia!!! I hope she finds some peace with this Dr. if you can't find a new one. That swing set looks like a lot of fun with some great shade. No sunburns!

I wonder if Olivia has allergies that make her nose run and try to drain down the back of her throat. I don't know if she can have pediatric claritin (or if they even make it) but whenever my daughter starts coughing I give her allergy meds.
