Sunnier Day

Whew! Jax woke up MUCH better today. I stayed ahead of his issues with Albuterol and Zofran in the middle of the night and he woke up smiling and asking for cartoons with an empty feeding bag of Pedialyte, yay!
We had a quiet morning of just going to the chiropractor, but we got out and enjoyed the beautiful fall day for the afternoon. I picked up 2 out of the 3 Rx's for Jax and apparently the insurance co is putting the nurse and pharmacy through the ringer to get Jax some Zofran. At this point it's to have it on hand given his issues when he gets sick, but how crazy is that? I understand that it's an extremely expensive drug, but how could anyone even question that Jax needs this? It's the only thing that keeps him out of the hospital when his GI system acts up with illness. So odd... I wonder if it makes a difference if the GI specialist orders it? Because Jax used to get it by the gallon back in the day. Hmm.

Have you ever wondered what I do when I'm stuck in the house with two sick kids? In between cleaning up puke, doing laundry, changing their clothes, giving baths, giving meds, checking temps, checking O2 and giving sips of fluids, apparently I do this...
Clean out, organize and label my spice cabinet...

Clean out the kitchen medicine cabinet resulting in an ENTIRE GARBAGE BAG full of old medication. 95% of Jax's and boy it brought back some memories!

Jax's old med-schedule... I left this up on the cabinet door to remind me that we are blessed.

The boys watching Mickey while I prepared lunch today.

Loving our walk around the neighborhood after lunch.

Jax at the barber.

A hot towel and shampoo?? Fabulous!
