Two Steps Back


So my Husband and Daughter are staying at a condo on the beach in south Texas right now. What am I doing? Isaac is teething which makes life super fun and to top it off, he has the runs from the antibiotics he's been on. I know, I know, I really know how to have a screeeaming good time. I'm happy for them, especially for my daughter as she is having a great time with her Dad visiting family down there. They are fishing and swimming in the hot Texas sun.

I sure miss them.

Isaac saw the pulmonologist and he's not
totally out of the woods yet, so he's on another round of those fun antibiotics. I will just have to stock up on rash creams! I'm a little discouraged, to say the least about the oxygen. We were down to room air and then the little stinker gets sick! I just feel like we are always taking two steps back just when we are starting to move forward. Anyhow, next week he is getting another immune test done since the last one said his levels were low. If this one is low again, they said we may have to do further testing in Seattle! This could determine whether he may need intravenous immunoglobulin I hope this isn't the case. As you know, taking him to the nearest doctor is an ordeal, but Seattle?

sorry to hear that Issac is sick again, I can certainly sympathize with the feeling of always moving backwards just when things seem to be getting better. Lots of hugs and prayers.

Sorry to hear about the set back. Aw I hope your family enjoys the beach. We normally go to Galveston to get away, but I haven't been back since the hurricane hit.

Sorry to hear that you are stuck at home when you should be taking the nice vacation you so deserve.

And I too hate the vicious cycle of antibiotics/diarrhea/horrible diaper rash. It seems so cruel to add that on to the kiddo already being really sick. I'll pray Isaac can get back to room air soon. That is so frustrating!
