Just call me at the hospital!

If you are wondering where I have been lately I have been running back and forth from the doctor to the hospital for the last month and a half. Jacob got sick with the flu in April but he was just not getting better. I finaly took him to the doctor and they thought he had appendicitis so they sent me to the hospital. It turned out the he had pneumonia. He had to stay in the hospital for a few days. We were so grateful that it was not more serious. He recovered quickly then about two weeks later he was walking along a retaining wall at the little league field and fell and broke his arm.

About a week later kyle got hit in the hand with a golf ball at school. We went back to the Doctor's office for an Xray and found that he had a small fracture. They put his hand into a splint to protect it but he didn't need a cast. A few days later Randy and the boys went camping. When they got home Kyle was having chest pain and was having a hard time breathing. The doctor's office was closed since it was saturday so off we went to the ER again, thinking he had pneumonia. They Xrayed his lungs and couldn't find anything so they said it was pleurisy. It is an inflamation of the lungs that goes away on it's own. At least he didn't have to stay in the hospital. He is feeling great now but is sad that he is missing the end of little league season.

In between all of this Hailey got double ear infections and I fell and thought I broke my tailbone.

The doctor says we should be good for a couple of years now. I hope he is right. I am so sick of doctor's offices, Xrays, and staying up all night with sick kids.

We are all healthy now. What a blessing it is to have good health.

Oh no! What a busy life! We think Chris had pleurisy before, his asthma can have that together. Broken bones are no fun.

Kyle looks just like Chris would...in fact I know I have a picture of Chris with the same expression. That is why they got along so well.

I do hope you are done with doctors for awhile. All that can be very draining. We went through 18 months of that with Marly when she couldn't walk. No fun! But, I have to be thankful for modern medicine. Our lives are prolonged, pain is diminished, and we are able to truly find out (most of the time) what is wrong within a short time. No other time in history has been so blessed.
