Anyhow...moving on we headed up to Pediatrics and eventually got started on two antibiotics which eventually took affect on Alistair. But he did keep dipping down with his oxygen saturation and his heart rate was beating away more than my liking. But it seems that he got sinusitis. His xray and blookwork came back clear but it was obvious something was impacting him negatively. So it was to my great relief when he started consuming foods and liquids.
It was pretty humbling all the people that came by for a visit to provide well wishes and entertain me as I waited out Alistairs time in the hospital. It was also eye opening how many people reached out to try and lend a hand taking Francis and just trying to make our lives easy just in those short...long six days. One forgets how extensive their support network is until something such as this occurs and then one realizes just how lucky they are.
Anyhow, when we finally got discharged I decided to withhold Alistair from school one more week as he had lost a couple of pounds which is huge when you only weighed 28 in the first place! So he had a week of drinking cream, eating a ton of avocados, along with lots of peanut and almond butter. Thankfully he had a good appeitie so therefore I just had to keep shoveling in the food along with the high fat smoothies.
We ended up throwing Francis a Second Birthday party the following weekend which worked out great.We still did the party in the park which seemed to make children and parents alike very happy with it all. Lots of places to run and play. We also did a nice little train ride around the park too which she found so much fun. So not only was her cup full at the end of the day I found mine was too!Grandma did a neat thing for Francis and resurected my old table and chair set when I was a little kid. She sure spiffed it up nice and Francis loves her new set in her bed room. I think there is a tad of resemblance between her and I as little ones!
So this last week has finally been a week of almost normal for us. The books are almost back on track. We are spending lots of time with her cousins as they are sadly moving North on us. We are learing to ride the bike she got for her bday. Socials are back in the swing of things. Plus my brain seems to be screwed on right for the most part. So all a big bonus.Now I'm just trying to get a bunch of summer painting started/ down when the weather is so gorgeous.
Well this girl has got to go to bed. I've been buring the candle on both ends for so long its time to put that down as a priority sooner than later!
