blah blah blah and a prize.......

So Little One has had RSV for over a week, actually going on two weeks now right?........right???? well, maybe not. Over the weekend we had to bring her to the Children's ER because she was coughing and unable to catch her breath, lips turning blue, scaring the absolute HELL out of both of us. The ER doctor, McNotSoBright really didn't do much and took our word for it that she had RSV and sent us on our way because we find out yesterday that NO WAY were her lungs clear enough to send us on our way based on what he was hearing.

Well, we thought she did have RSV because that's what the pediatrician we had to see, McFlaky, told us (since our normal one, McFineAsHell, was off that day). You see yesterday was her 9 month well visit (sort of well) and during her check up Dr. McFineAsHell, who happens to be the BEST pediatrician ever asked me if any of these doctors had actually TESTED her for RSV because he was leaning more towards bronchitis and/or pneumonia. Well, no Dr. McFineAsHell, they didn't. I think they just listened to her and said OH! RSV.......and here I was totally bashing the $2000 per dose vaccine that was supposed to keep her from getting RSV even though there were 3 kids in Storage that had it. It DID keep her from getting RSV......it wasn't RSV to begin with and had they done the RSV test on her they would have known that she had bronchitis and could have already been treating her with antibiotics and stuff and we could be DONE with it. BUT NO, now we are over a week later trying to more aggressively treat it with very high powered antibiotics and a one-two breathing treatment punch 4 times a day plus Singulair and HOPE it doesn't take a turn for the worse. I'm so pissed. So quick to give that diagnosis and not bother with the test.......mad mad mad mommy!! Anyway, lesson learned.

On to other things like, Christmas shopping. When is it that I plan to get this done? I'm usually done by now. I usually have the best gifts for everyone. Very useful very personal well thought out gifts. Not this year. I have TOO much on my plate. People will be lucky to get something from me period. I don't like that. I don't like that I don't have the time or the ideas or the money to do my normal Christmas. It's not my style to get generic thoughtless gifts, but I'm afraid a lot of those will be given this year and it makes me sad. Plus my mind is completely full of My Dad, Little One's sickness and FOOTBALL.......Oh my goodness the football is getting good and I'm consumed by all the scenarios that will/could happen for us to clinch home field advantage, blah blah, etc......it's a sickness and I've got it bad. I can't concentrate. I can't shop. This is a problem. I need to shop. I need to get done. I need it behind me.

I need ideas. I am turning to you......WHAT are you giving this year to well, everyone? What is your favorite gift to give and what are you giving your Dad? Mom? Brother? Daughter? Aunt, Uncle, cousin? Lists please......I need ideas. Lay it all out for me and let me steal YOUR fabulous ideas!!

Oh, I think we've picked a name for the kitten and it's not one of yours.......but in the spirit of the season I'm still giving away the fantastic Digital Photo Silver Snowflake Ornament that holds at least 60 photos and is a fantastic thing to have!! So leave a comment and gain an entry......I'm giving you until Sunday to comment and on Sunday night I will have Big One draw a number and declare a winner!!!

More comments, more entries..........

Because of a lack of funds I am making homemade bread and soup for most of my family members. I figure it is homemade, thoughtful and yummy so who wouldn't like it, right?

Oh, and I forgot...starbucks is having a sale so I got some stuff from there for my hubby...20% off their merchandise (coffee press', travel mugs, whole bean coffee, etc.)

I made my daughter a new baby sling for her dolls (her old one didn't fit) and I'm having my Mom embroider it. And she's getting an MP3 player. All 3 of my older kids are getting something from Klutz books, those are neat. And can you say Pokemon, guns(so maybe he will stop making them with my vacuum cleaner) and baby stuff? That's all I can think of right now!

awww sooy, I should have asked if they tested her. Do they have her on a nebulizer with Xopenex, pulmicort. Along with Orapred? If not I would ask them why? Sorry she is so sick. HUGS

Jennifer said...

That totally pisses me off about the dr. Assholes.

Jennifer said...

I hope Litle One gets well soon. She is too sweet and cute to be that sick.

Jennifer said...

Your dad has been SO on mind. Cancer is a bitch. I hate it, hate it, hate it. No family should have to go through it.

Jennifer said...

I got my mom a flat screen monitor for her computer, she still has the old fashioned kind. It was actually David's idea. My stepmom is getting gardening stuff. David, an exbox and some kind of tool thing he asked for. Baby Girl, barbie jeep, Bud, fisher price baby toy shit. My nephew, playmobil pirate set stuff. We don't buy for our siblings. My FIL, a microwave. I think he still has one with the turn dial.

Jennifer said...

Can you tell I would really like that ornament?

Kurt, Emily & Ethan said...

All of my aunts / uncles got homemade cookies / goodies in pretty boxes by Martha Stewart that I found at Michaels.

Best bet is to find stuff on-line that offers free shipping and wrapping. Then you don't have to deal w/ that either.

I feel your pain about the doctors. My son had RSV one winter and then bronchiolitis the next winter and we couldn't get rid of it - seemed to last until the end of spring. Good luck with it!
