Just an update

Sorry for the lack of updates. Everyone has been so sick. Of course I'm the worst :-(

This all started around 4th of July with Austin coughing, then I got it, then Bill and Noah. No coughing for Corb. Then Austin started having a very sore throat and a temp on and off for a few days, then I got it, but of coughing I'm still coughing BAD too and now Corb has been sick since Tuesday, as long as I give him ibuprofen every 4 hours, his fever stays down but if I was even a little late, he would get a pretty high fever about 104.8 rectally.

His bad tummy ache came back on Tuesday too. I gave him just a touch of adivan and he was then fine. But you could just see the pain on his little face and the way he holds his body, he was hurting. Today was his scheduled GI appointment anyway. He's going to try Corb on a new med. It's to relieves muscle spasms and cramping in the gastrointestinal tract. Wish someone would have thought of this one a long time ago. I haven't started it though the pharmacy had to order it. It would rock if it works. Poor kid. It sucks having a tummy ache all the time.

School starts in 12 days. I think I'm excited LOL I'm really trying because I know how good this is going to be for him. And me too, it will get me out of the house. Oh have I mentioned I'm going with him for the first couple of weeks lol I have always volunteered at the boy's school. So I'm pretty excited to get back with lots of little kids and some even like Corb. After the first weeks, I of course won't go everyday and the days I do go, I'm going to play with the other little kids. I want Corb to see Momma can play with others and not just him lol

Something new has been going on around here too. Noah has been paying a little more attention to Corb and boy-o-boy does Corb think he's funny. In the doc's office today, Noah kept saying 68 and Corb would just roar. The other day it was, I dropped a big turd (a boy thing lol) and Corb just thought it was so funny.

So I'm off, I'm heading to bed early. I gotta kick this soon. Coughing is just killer on the chest. And tiring.

Caradie and Corbin

I hope feels better soon,I have had bronchitis for two weeks now,and just can't seem to get over it either and your right the coughing is harsh.

Take care,

I sure hope that the new medicine works for Corb. It is a well known anti-spasm for IBS. It is the only thing that keeps me from freaking out with belly cramps. I pray it will give him some relief, too.

School will be great for both of you and you will meet so many new people. I love helping at Ashleigh's school and I volunteer once a fortnight now for about 4 hours. I actually requested helping in 2 other classes from Ashleigh's to give us a break from eachother. Also it has helped me get to see how other kids are and new ways of doing things, as well as getting to know other teachers at school that Ashleigh will have in the future. Then I help at recess and play in Ashleigh's playground area with her and the other little kids and the wheechair kids, then I finish off the day in Ashleigh's room.
I'm glad Noah and Corb are getting closer.
