Things are better for Ty, worse for me...

Ty is doing better; the doctor said there is an improvement, but he is still struggling to breathe. So we are continuing the breathing treatments/wrestling matches while Ty finishes his antibiotics and steroids. Thanks so much for all of the prayers. I know that they are working because today (after getting a good night's sleep for the first time all week), he has had a great day. We go back to the doc on Thursday.

On the other hand, I have been staying far, far away from him since I seem to have a stomach virus. I won't go into any more details because I don't want to gross anyone out.

Dee is such a super-hero husband at times like this--he made pancakes this morning, took the kids grocery shopping (he has never taken both by himself before), fed them lunch, got them down for really long naps, and cleaned the den, dining room, and kitchen. And he's managed to force me to drink Gatorade in the middle of all of this!

Needless to say, my trip to Arkansas to visit my siblings is now postponed. I was supposed to leave today. Hopefully, we will get to go at the end of next week. I'm going to go back to bed now, but I just wanted to update in case anyone was wondering how little man is doing.

it's so funny. I remember how amazed i was with your first pics of emily with your new lens. I just looked at them after the ones of emily and her cousin and I can see so much improvement! Way to go sister! I can tell I've improved, but not as quickly as you!!
