Rough Week #2

Well we just managed to finish another rough week. My son had is tonsils and adenoids removed on Tuesday as well as had another set of ear tubes placed. The surgery went good, but he has been so miserable ever since! He refused to eat or drink when we brought him home and on Friday night we ended up at the ER. I think we arrived there at 11:30 p.m. and we were there until 4:40 a.m. when they finally decided that he was so dehydrated that he needed to be admitted. He got IV fluids until Saturday evening around 7:30 p.m. when we were released to go home.

On the same Tuesday as his surgery I got a call that my sister who is 31 weeks pregnant was in the hospital. Her first child was born a preemie at 33 weeks and she was having contractions. They gave her a shot and put her on light activity for the rest of the week. So she was O.K. but upset because her 4 year old had a birthday on Sunday and she didn't know how she was going to pull that off! She did with help though and he had a great party.

To top off all this story, my sister and I work my mom's childrens boutique. So, my mom had to work all week and my dad just opened a new restaurant in town and this week was the big opening week!

When it rains it pours and for some reason April is always a rough month for my family.

My son is home, but still feeling really miserable. My sister has a doctors appointment today, so we should know the new word by this afternoon on her condition. Surely things will look up soon!
