I have so much in my head that just goes around in circles and festers. There are many frustrations and stresses and just plain stuff to deal with right now. So I thought that maybe I could blog about it to at least give it somewhere to go.
There is a lot of history here that explains our current situation, but I think I'll talk about different parts of the story as I go.
Today I have 2 sick babies - Sam and George. They both have bad colds. Poor little Georgie can barely breath from such a stuffed up nose. And Sam. Oh, Sam. He is not a good sick patient. He gets SO fussy when he's sick. He already has fussiness issues and so it's REALLY hard when he gets sick. This morning he screamed and screamed at 6:30 in the morning and woke Sarah up (we live with Sarah and her family) after she had planned to sleep in today (sorry, Sarah!!).
Sam tends to get ear infections easily and so I am taking him into the doc at noon to see if he has one this time. MUST GET HIM BETTER!
I also decided to make him an appointment with Dr. Jerry Duggar - a holistic chiropractor in Bountiful. I am getting desperate to figure out how to help him to be a happier child. He has eczema all over his body and he is ALWAYS fussy. I've listened to similar experiences with friend's kids and I am starting to believe that he has something going on inside of him that we can help with. We just need to find what it is. Dr. Duggar says that eczema is almost always associated with gut issues. I think that he might be able to help us figure this out. But I will make the appointment Monday since they are out of the office today.
And George is having neck issues. He needs a little bit of help from a physical therapist, but the first available appointment is June 3rd, so I made the appointment and then we'll be on a cancellation list until then. Hopefully we can get in sooner.
These are just a few medical issues, I guess. But there is so much more to talk about and so I will plan to do other posts. What could I have to talk about, you ask? So much, I tell you! Here is a brief overview: We are completely exhausted in every way, we have a new baby and we're trying to adjust to 5 children, we are looking for a job, we're living in someone else's home, we haven't been in a home of our own in 5 months, and all of our belongings are in storage. So you see - I'm just getting started.
Update - Sam does have an ear infection. Mommy senses, I tell you.
