Default Sick :(

So sorry I haven't been around much lately! All three of us have been very sick, and with Christmas it was just one big crazy weekend. To make a long story short, Gavyn is now on amoxicillan for his cough and I am on a ton of different meds for a bad throat infection and bronchitis. Ross has been coughing too but won't go to the doctors. In the past two weeks, Gavyn has been to the doctors twice to be told he was fine. His doctor has been on holiday vacation so both times he saw someone else. Both times I was told that he was pretty much fine. The first time they said leave him on regular formula and that he probably had a bit of a virus. The second doctor (different one) said to change him back to the Soy formula (which we did last night) and see if he gets any better, but that his lungs sounded great. Finally I called them on Tuesday and told them his cough is not getting better. They wanted him on antibiotics. As for myself, I was in the doctors on Saturday and they gave me new inhalers (I have asthma) and did a breathing test and took blood. They didn't give me any antibiotics though. I knew I had bronchitis (I have a major history of it) but there was nothing I could do. I waited out the weekend hoping to get better but today woke up feeling absolutely horrible! I'm finally on meds too, so hopefully this will be the end of a crazy week! I can't wait to feel better, I've had absolutely no energy and it's so hard caring for a baby when you're sick as a dog. Doesn't help if the baby is sick too, LOL!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!! We did, besides being sick. Gavyn made out like a bandit! I'll post pictures later, but he got a Jumperoo and Britax carseat from his Grandparents (plus tons of other things, they spoiled him ROTTEN!) He got so many clothes I don't know what to do with them all and our poor living room is stuffed to the brim with miles and miles of baby toys.
