Welcome to the Infirmary!

This might be a scattered post since I have kids hanging from each arm. If you live in this house, chances are you have something going on with you. Either you are sick, injured or have some ailment that needs to be surgically fixed.

This weekend at a baseball tournament, Nico strained his Achilles tendons in both of his ankles to the point where he couldn't walk. It's heart-wrenching to see your child have to crawl to the bathroom. He was also sick with a fever and headache.

Gia, my little monster, remember...was getting worse and had stopped eating. I took them both to the doctor and sure enough, they both have sinus infections and both were put on antibiotics. Nico has to be on Advil or another anti-inflammatory (can't be on a steroid because of CF, another reason to hate CF because he'd get instant relief if he could take one), I had to buy special inserts for his shoes and he was ordered to stay off of it because if he puts enough strain on them, they could tear and he'll need surgery. He was home from school for two days and the work he is going to have to do is a lot. I swear the only thing more stubborn than a two year old is an athletic 14 year old that wants to run in his track meet and play in his baseball games.

Isabella has to have her tonsils and adenoids out but that isn't until July. I scheduled that today. She is thrilled as you can imagine. How sad that there is only one week in the next three months where we could get it done. Not so much because of the doctor's schedule but because of ours!

Tommy's allergies are making him miserable.

I woke up with a sinus headache but keep repeating, "I will not get sick...I will not get sick..." How many of you want to bet that the minute I tell Leo that I have a headache, he'll start holding his throat or head saying, "Yeah, I don't feel good either. I think I might be getting sick"?

On a separate note, how do you like the new look? In the effort to really put myself out there, I wanted to not have our picture be so out there. I worked with a fabulous designer (Kimberly Muro Designs) so if you are thinking of giving your blog a new look, let me know and I'll give you her information. I can't stress enough how wonderful she is to work with. I had a million questions and she answered them all while being patient and sweet. I had a muddled vision in my head of what I wanted and she made it all come together in a way that I just love. Thanks so much, Kimberly!

I just saw that you are now following, too! Made my whole day! I'm going to head over and check yours out. I am not a big fishing girl but Leo fishes tournaments when he can so I'll have to have him check it out.

I am so glad you like it! I loved working with you, too! :)

Oh no, sorry about the sickies - hope everyone gets well soon!!

And love the new look - Kim is awesome!

Lookin' good, lookin' good! Love the royal court of chaos page idea! :D Just wanted to give you a heads up that the links on your header - the rss icon and the email icon - aren't linking to your pages or info. You probably know that already, but I figured it couldn't hurt to say something. I tested out most everything else and those two seem to be the only ones that need re-wiring. ;)
Anyway, so happy for you and congrats!!

I haven't driven you crazy yet, Kim? :)

Hmmm...blogger isn't letting me comment on each post individually tonight. Frustrating.

Thanks, Alison. Now that everyone (but me) is on antibiotics, they are much better.

Ken, I didn't know that so thank you for your kind words and alerting me to that!
