Getting back into the swing of things.


So we had an absolutely fantastic Christmas in Athens with the Family. It was great to see everyone and play catchup with them. We don’t all get to be together on the holidays, so it’s great when we do. We stayed from Friday the 23rd until Monday the 26th. We left that night around 10pm. I know it seems a little late to take a 3.5 hour road trip, but we figured Jp would sleep in the car, and he did, so it worked out well. Tuesday was a lazy day around the house, full of laundry and unpacking bags. John was off, so it was great to have him here to entertain little man so I could get that done. About 4 o’clock Wednesday morning, Jp started having Strider again though. I woke John up, and we rushed him to the Dell Children’s Center Emergency Room. He has croup again. This same thing happened in mid October, only we had no clue what was wrong then, and were considerably freaked out. This time it only took a dose of Decadron, and one breathing treatment, and we didn’t have to be admitted to the hospital either. Just a few hours in the ER, and then we were released at 8am.

One of the scariest things as a mom is knowing that your child is having trouble breathing. We have his 24 month checkup scheduled for February 8th, so we are going to talk to the pediatrician about maybe getting a nebulizer at home so we will have it in case this happens again.

I am still waiting on my mom to email me all the pictures from Christmas. My digital camera is broken, so I was not on photo duty this past weekend. As soon as she gets them to me I will post them here.

I haven’t decided if I am going to make a New Years resolution this year. Are you? If so what will it be? I always make them, and with the exception of one year, I don’ think I’ve ever stuck to it. Who knows what will happen this year!!

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, and I also wish you all the best in 2012!!
