Spring!!

Spring has finally arrived here after several months of snow, more snow and rain. I'm happy to report that 2 days ago I got a sunburn on my nose and our fruit trees are producing beautiful flowers in our yard. I'm also happy to report that after 3 weeks, I'm finally done with that horrible bronchitis. I had to go on another round of antibiotics on Monday because I was still coughing a ton. This is a very resistant bug we have going around because poor Autumn started having a relapse with pneumonia yesterday. I had take her in to the ER last night because she was having trouble breathing good and she was spiking a temp. After a chest X-ray the Dr. said that she had pneumonia in her left lung. They put her on a different antibiotic this time. I seriously don't know what's going on with us girls! I've been going to the health food store and we've been taking certain herbs to boost our immune system.

Isaac had a Shriner's appointment on Wednesday. You may remember
this post where he had X-rays of his hips and I was suddenly hit with the reality of him developing dysplasia. It appears that with this appointment there isn't an improvement and that his hips are actually 60% dislocated. I was thankful for the nurse practitioner because she was very informative and understanding when I expressed my concerns about the pros and cons of a spica cast in the future.

On a positive note, Isaac isn't needing the oxygen during the day. I can also see the gears turning more in his sweet little head when the teacher comes over and works with him. Here he's concentrating really hard when he's taking the pegs out and
putting them back in.
