Inspiration for today...

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

Philippians 4: 4-8

Doctor Appointments

All three of the kiddos had doctor appointments today - well checks. They are all fighting a cold but otherwise perfectly healthy. The boys had their eyes checked too...both 20/20. D is in the 40% for weight and 48% for height. C is in the 48% for weight and 40% for height - he dared try tell me he was a little concerned on his weight but if you would see C, you would disagree! K on the other hand is in the 13% for height and 63% for weight...but you gotta love these cheeks!

K has actually been on a neb since before Christmas. The Dr wanted to make sure that we didn't have to make an ER run over the Holidays. Her cough has not gotten any better and she has a little bit of a wheeze yet. I think it was better for a little while but now has gone backwards :(. They did a chest X-ray - I think that is the most heartwrenching thing that I have ever had to experience as a Mom. Watching them be held in place with their arms raised and listening to your baby scream bloody murder but knowing that it is for their best interest. I have had to go through that twice with C too. (Still waiting for Dan to take his turn doing that!!!) The X-ray was clear so that was good. The Doc even printed out one of the pictures for the boys because they wanted to see her skeleton. He is the coolest Doc - so glad I switched to our town clinic! That is another whole blog all together...

I LOVE K's cheeks! And all her fat rolls, too.

I saw the Doc tonight, one of his boys is on the swim team now. Must be Cody's age, he wasn't on last year.

I am glad all went well with their check ups! Yes, K has the cutest cheeks! You just wanna squeeze them!

I will pray that her cough goes away and that her health improves! I hate those chest x-rays, too! It is heart wrenching! They are so scared and don't know why they are like that.

Praying for a speedy recovery!
