Easter Pictures

Last weekend I attempted to get some Easter Pictures of Isaac. With the help of Mom we managed to get a few good ones. He was just getting over his sicknesses so he really wasn't in the mood to take pictures. Here are a few of my favorites!

Lets see, I wonder what may be inside?

Notice his elbow leaning on the window sill. Thought it was too cute!

Play time

Just some more snap shots. My little cutie!!!

It's Official.....

I'm a soccer Mom. I made the purchase 2-3 weeks ago and LOVE it. It is the greatest purchase I have made. It is so nice and easy getting Isaac in and out and he loves to ride in it. He just sits in his seat and looks out the window!

Breathing Treatments

Isaac patiently taking his breathing treatment. He is doing much better now. I think the treatments really helped him a lot. He actually goes and finds his mask when it is time to do one!!
Abby and Molly were very interested in what was going on. Abby wanted to "help" and hold the mask. Isaac was starting to get a little mad b/c Molly kept wanting to sit on his lap!

So of course, Molly wanted to help also!!

Play time

These are some pictures of the kids. Just some snapshots!!

Pillow fight with Papa.

What, did I get caught?

Uh, is Abby reading to me?

What, did you say my name?

Updated House Pictures

Mom, Mary, and Abby working very hard on the cabinet doors. They had to strip them and it was quit the job. It took a lot of time and hard work to get down to original wood. But thanks to Mary, she kept Mom motivated and they did it. They look wonderful.

What the doors looked like when they were completely stripped. They are waiting to have the polyurethane applied to them.

Porch before.

In the process of tearing all the nasty green stuff out. Check out the wall in the bank, it was done on the diagonal. Very different.

Tearing it all out.

This is what was behind the original siding. It was still in very good shape so we left it there and covered it up with the "new" stuff!

And now the new stuff. Doesn't it look great. We were all very surprised how good it looked. It really makes the porch look bigger!!! Can't wait to see the final product.

Update on Little Isaac

I guess I better give a little update on how Isaac is doing. I had Isaac back to the Dr. on Tuesday. He had been extremely grouchy and wasn't sleeping at all. It was really starting to wear on me. I called the Dr. and they thought they should probably see him because he may have a secondary ear infection. So I was taking off that afternoon to come home to stay with him so we trucked on over to Columbia to the Dr. His ears were fine so they swabbed his nose to make sure that he had influenza. Sure enough he tested positive for influenza therefore no medicine because it is viral. Dr. told me that if he was still running a fever on Thursday to call and bring him in on Friday and they would do a chest X-Ray . He could here some rattle in his chest but not enough to show concern. I thought Isaac was getting better we didn't run a fever Wednesday night. He woke up Thursday morning running a 102.6 fever. I stayed home with him. I called the Dr. after lunch because Isaac was just wanting to lay around on me, not eat or drink, and was wheezing really bad when sitting on my lap. So I called the Dr.'s office and had to talk to the on call because my normal Dr is out of the office on Thursday. They thought they should probably go on and see him today and not wait until tomorrow since he was wheezing. So at 2:15 we head to Columbia, for the 3rd time.
After a chest X-Ray, a breathing treatment, and then blood draw they finally came up with the following diagnosis: Pneumonia. She said that she could hear it, and see it on the X-Ray but it still looked viral. So off to the blood draw station we went and after 3 pokes in the arm they finally got blood out. (It was horrible!!!) His white blood count came back normal so technically at this point it is still viral but at anytime it can go in to bacterial. She sent us home on breathing treatments and an antibiotic. So I think Isaac has had his share of this sickness. He tries to feel good and be happy but at times he just cries, because he doesn't know what he wants.
That is about all that I know. We are doing some major work to the porch on my house so I will post the pictures soon, along with ones of Isaac doing his breathing treatment
