Well, I just got home from the pediatrician office with the boys...I jinxed myself by saying we were having a healthy winter because now not only has Travis's asthma turned into a hefty cold, but now Elijah is sick also. What a bummer! He is coughing like crazy and stuffy. Because of all of Elijah's oral issues when he gets a cold/cough he cannot hold food/drink down and it is VERY difficult to keep him hydrated...so please pray for the boys for healing and also for comfort during sleep (that is always the worst for the cough). Pray that Elijah will hold enough fluids down to sustain himself.
Funny little bit of info...Elijah hasn't been to the ped office since mid November. So no one has seen him in a while. At the last visit he was 29 pounds. Well, at todays visit he weighed in at a whopping 34 pounds! I am telling you he is a TANK! The doctor walked in and took a look at him and started laughing. She though she was in the wrong room. She looked at me and said "Look at him...he is SOOOO fat! You have done good Mom!" SHe couldn't stop talking about how awesome he looked and even commented on the fact that she couldn't believe that he is still so fresh from surgery that his scar is still purple and he looks this good! Anyway my point is that it is so awesome to hear how good all of the docs thinks he looks!
