Or technically, I should say Saturday morning.
Kanyon went to bed Friday night with a little cold. No big deal. But, at midnight he woke up and was coughing and couldn't breath. Remember this and this from last year? Same thing. So off to the ER he and I went. It was slammed. The ambulances just kept coming and I was sitting about 10 feet from a dude that was barfing in a bucket. Yuck. We sat there for 2 hours and still had yet to be seen. Kanyon was breathing better and really wanted to go home, so we just signed a form and left. He woke up again at 5:30 and had the same thing happen... I took him outside, calmed him down, and let him just breath in the cool air blowing in from the canyon. He seemed better and went back to sleep. We got into his pediatrician first thing this morning and got him on steroids and breathing treatments along with his regular inhaler. We got a script for our very own nebulizer, so I think we'll just go ahead and buy one. It would make my life so much easier and we'd probably have less ER trips with one of those in the house. After all that, Kanyon is as contagious as a kid with a cold. I wish that was all he ever got.
Here he is today during a breathing treatment. He still doesn't love these but does them without much complaint.
So, while all this was going on with Kanyon, just as we got back from the ER and got into bed Scarlett falls out of her bed and is screaming. Steve goes in and calms her down and she goes right back to bed. Well, this morning Scarlett's pillow is soaked with blood... we see no signs of blood anywhere. We checked her nose, mouth, etc and nothing. Finally we look at her head and there is the biggest gash. Seriously, like an inch and a half. Steve and I just stared at each other wondering how in the world we missed that. So, she came to the pediatrician with Kanyon and I and was checked out. He said if we would have brought her to the ER last night, she would have gotten staples in her head. Luckily, we didn't notice it and it closed up pretty good last night on it's own. I was relieved. I thought for sure I was going to be strapping down my little girl for some stitching this morning.
Despite it all, she acts like nothing happened!
I'm tired. And I'm going to bed right now. Please give me back my uneventful life... I really appreciate it right now.
