My Crazy - Life - Family - Kids

Ok, life is crazier than usual around here. Unfortunately, my blog is the first thing that has to go, not to mention the internet is absent at our house right now, too. So here are a few updates on what's going on around here.

Myshel: Has a "boyfriend" named Cody. A 6'4" nerdy little farm boy that she thinks is soooo hot! Need I say more????

Vance: During his yearly physical I asked the doctor about Vance's seasonal allergies. We ended up giving him a crude (her words, not mine) blood test to check for some common allergies. He came up positive on so many that the doctor suggested that he see an allergist. So that appointment is in 2 weeks. He's not happy about doing it at all. I can't say that I really blame him. His dad was tested for allergies when he was younger and found that he was allergic to 75 of the 81 things that they tested him for. That led to Chad getting an allergy shot every week for 5 years. Some of the things that he is VERY allergic to from the blood test) are dust--bye, bye carpets, curtains, and extra pillows in his bedroom--timothy grass and birch pollen, 2 things that are extremely abundant in Maine. Poor Vance, I do feel sorry for him, but he has his dad to thank for that!

McKaylie: Besides the fact that Mckaylie will be turning 8 on the 19th and we're getting ready for her baptism (with a brand new bishop-no less) she also had a yearly physical. when I was there we discussed the fact that she seems to hang on to coughs longer than she should. The doctor told me some things I could do to help and sent us on our way. She had mentioned having a peak flow test done on her, but it wasn't ever done and I didn't think about it again until we were home. It nagged at me, so when i was at the doctor's office the next week again with Vance I asked her about it. She agreed that we should have her come back in. So the doctor sat down and talked to us, listened to McKaylie breathe and I don't think was very convinced that there was much of a problem to worry about. She was very nice, though. Then they did the peak flow test and it wasn't great. Mckaylie should be able to blow around 250 and her best was 175. McKaylie now has an inhaler that she has to use at least 3 times a day unless she needs it more. We'll be back at the doctor's office with her in 3 weeks. She can also thank her dad.

McKaylie also has an appointment with the orthodontist. The evaluation is free, but to start her record will cost $300. We already know that they're going to have to do work on her teeth. She doesn't have enough room for all her permanent teeth to come in, in her mouth. I think my hubby should have become an orthodontist.

By the last week in May, I will have spent 5 of the 6 previous Tuesdays at the doctor's office with either Vance or McKaylie! I'm going to thank military insurance coverage for making that possible!!!!!

Noah: We filled out the registration paperwork for kingertargen for Noah. On it, the doctor's office said that his vision test showed he had blurred vision. Which is interesting that no one said anything to me about it....grumble grumble. So, we're going to take Noah to the optomotrist to see if it's really his eyes, or just his stubborness! We're hoping for stubborness because if he has to wear glasses.........it'll be a fight from the word, GO! I hear that if he has poor eyesight then he can thank me for that "bad trait". I suppose that would be true! I think I'd take bad eyesight over asthma, though! (hee hee)

So, I added them all up and for the month of May, we have 27 additional appointments. That's not counting all the every day running around and the regular appointments, like speech, young women's and scouts, etc. And I wonder why I don't have time to blog............

No internet? Where are you blogging from?

Poor you for Myshel having a "boyfriend" and poor Vance for all of his allergies! That would stink if he has to get a shot every week. I definitely would not like that!

Wow, McKaylie is 8 already???

I am hoping the military insurance is good with all of these appointments. The dollar signs would be adding up quickly if we had all these appointments! You certainly have a busy May coming up!

I hope you are staying sane with all that going on. 27 appts? Yikes!
Although, you gotta love tri-care sometimes!

The older the kids get and the more of them you have, the more time you spend in doctor's offices! CRAZY! Everyone is doing something different. It's a good thing the mom's have nothing else to do but run to appointments and pay bills! Good luck on all the visits. And post when you can. I still love reading about your crazy, busy life!

Cindy trust me I know what you mean about the allergies. My hubby has them HORRIBLY and so do I. Yeah so all FOUR of my lil monsters do. One manifests as eczema, one manifests as asthma and the other two have the runny nose and all that good stuff.
