Calgon take me away...

Well...our house is just insane. Brady got Jaxon's cold and is taking it like a wimp in comparison. He's up EVERY 30 minutes to an hour at night non-stop, not really eating much and is overall very crabby. I caught the cold myself because I need a cold like a hole in my head.
Jason came home from his work trip thankfully so I can have SOME relief and hopefully some sleep...not the case of course. Jason took Jaxon for the night and I took Brady...well that's when Brady decided he wanted to be awake non-stop and I guess Jax slept straight through until 3am. Do these kids think they're funny? Thankfully Rachel was here overnight to intervene with Brady before I had a complete sleep deprivation meltdown.

Now... Jason threw his back out this morning at work. Seriously?
So here I am driving Jason and Jaxon to the chiropractor while talking to the pediatric nurse about Brady on the phone. All my men have issues right now - no relief for the mama!

Jason had some electrodes put on him for a bit at the chiropractor and told to ice all day, and get an MRI done to see what the problem is. He is really hurting and can barely walk. The nurse told me that if Brady is up again tonight like he was, he needs to go in tomorrow. Jaxon seems to be doing better with his cold and sleeping a bit better. His posture is coming along nicely. He has an appointment at Children's Hospital tomorrow for Pulmonary. We may be juggling an MRI for Jason, a pediatrician stop for Brady, and the specialist appointment for Jax

The chiropractor is very interested to see what Jaxon's vomiting does once he's done with the cold and a few more sessions. He seems very optimistic about it...hey, I'll take it.

These are some long, challenging days.

You have so much going on. First, I pray that Jason's back feels better soon. I know how painful that can be. Has he seen any doctors yet? I wish I was closer and he could use some of my muscle relaxants.

I hope all of your boys get better soon so you (aka Wonder Woman) can get some relief.

I don't know who Racheal is, butit is wonderful you have her to help. Hugs to you,
Heather

You must be going completely insane. I remember just crying a few times I felt so overwhelmed and I just had a colicky baby...not all your dealing with. Thinking of you and sending lots of hugs your way.
