What a Week!

And by that I mean it was a SUCKY week.

Monday night we had a visit to the ER. Riley's first in fact. He was wheezing and so we threw him into the car and headed to ER. Once there he was no longer wheezing and was smilling at the nurses, he is such a flirt! This meant we were not high priority we spent a few hours there only to have an idiot Dr recomind cough surup (not suposed to have till 2 yrs old) but would not give us and nebulizer for him.

The next morning we went to visit Dr. Wonderful who told us the other Dr was wrong to give us cold medication (duh) and he gave us an inhalor for Riley with a face mask so he can actually use it.

Sleep has been hard to come by and since Riley has to sleep almost vertical that means he sleeps in the car seat, which I then put into his stroller next to our bed. It is a sight to see for sure but it allows me to be right there if he begins to cough and needs help getting the phlem out.

Then R and I caught the cold. For once in our relationship R is sicker than I am. He also sucks at taking care of himself, he will stop eating and not lay down until he is to the point of passing out. This means I have two babies on my hands not just one. But my mom did come over every day this week so that I could nap. She has been a god send. I seriously don't know how people who live far away from family do it. I don't think I would have survived this week without her.

Thankfully this weekend we have nothing going on so resting is on the agenda in a big way.

The ER visit sounds scary - I'm glad you got in to see your regular doctor quickly.

Oh my goodness...what an idiot that doctor was. Hopefully you all recovery quickly and don't have to deal with it again any time soon.

Feel better soon. I thought cold meds were banned - glad you did not take the doctor's advice.
Doesn't insurance pay for a nebulizer? Arrgh, so sorry for the drama.

And men are babies when they are ill. :-)

I was so hoping this post would be about Riley STTN or something else good-crazy. I'm sorry-- sounds very rough! I hope this week is better!
