Matthew Update and layout of the day

Matthew Sick Update...

I took Matthew into the pediatrician this morning and they discovered he has an infection in his lungs. He also had another ear infection in one of his ears. They prescribed us more antibiotics and a nebulizer that we need to do 3-4 times a day. You can't even pick up a nebulizer one has to be delivered and it was delivered 2 hrs after I left the Dr's office. You put this liquid medicine in it and Matthew has to put a mask on to basically breathe this medicine that is getting pumped in by a machine blowing air. This is helping to open his lungs so the mucus can get out. We did two treatments today and already he isn't coughing as much tonight so hopefully that is a good sign that it's going to work. He didn't like the mask much and kept fighting me and I kept telling him it was going to make him feel better and not cough. He finally settled down both times and was really good. Hopefully he feels the benefits of the treatments and won't fight me as much tomorrow.

I just feel so bad for the kid. Who would think all this would happen at almost the beginning of May w/90+ degree weather. Maybe it's the change in weather and more crap is blowing around. We are going back in two weeks to check his lungs and his ears and if his ears haven't cleared up then we'll probably go see a ENT doctor. Fun, fun!

I've been playing around with the new PSE 6 last night and tonight and am learning some cool new things. It's a sweet program and I'm loving what I can do. I've created more layouts in the last 3 nights than I have the last year. Pathetic! I just think it's easier to create on the computer since you can undo instead of getting through a paper layout and hating what you've done.

Anyways, here are two more that I did last night and tonight. Off to bed...we keep going to bed late every night and it's killing me.

You can click on the layouts to see them better.

We had this styrofoam cube thing that came with a pkg of mine and Matthew thought it was hilarious to sit in. He's wearing his new summer hat.

Matthew loves to hide from me behind things or run away from me so I got this really great picture one day of him underneath our dining room table. I just love that happy smile and the fun games we play. The poor thing hasn't been his happy fun self lately. :(

He is absolutely adorable! I love the pages also! You're amazing.

I'm sorry he is not feeling so well. Poor little man. That doesn't sound fun at all. You and Jordan are such great parents. I hope he is back to his healthy, happy self right away.
