Well, I ended up taking Adler to the doctor yesterday about his stomach issues, only to discover that was the least of his worries as he has pneumonia too. I honestly didn't think his cold was all that serious because he wasn't doing any of the wheezy, raspy breathing he did the other times he had pneumonia, and his high fever only lasted a day or two last week. But apparently, he has it. After a shot and a bundle of prescriptions, we are doing better. He woke up happy and energetic and wanting to eat. I had never heard of this, but the doctor sent me home with these little granules to mix in with his food to put the bacteria back in his stomach that he has been emptying out. And I think its working! We had a normal diaper this morning. And he slept ALL night. And the icing on the cake, I didn't stay up all night coughing either. We had a good nights sleep. God must have known we were all at breaking points.
On other news, I am about 15 weeks pregnant now, the wee one is the size of a lemon! Can't wait to start feeling those little kicks. Hopefully we will find out the sex in about 2 weeks. There is a lot of pressure for this one to be a girl, after a run of 5 boys on my side and 2 on E's side. The oldest grandchild on both sides are girls, and after that, all boys! Everyone says they don't care, but my mom has already informed me she has bought pink and E's mom says she doesn't care as long as its healthy, and a girl. In truth though, I know no-one actually cares though. A baby is a baby! I actually can't even imagine how I would mother a girl after having a boy.
We have pretty low-key New Year's plans. And by low-key, I mean no plans whatsoever. We certainly can't get Ad out, so I suppose we will just ring it in quietly with Ryan Secrest.
