So William has been sick since last Monday. I took him to the doctor on Tuesday and the doctor said he had a small virus which causes ulcers on his throat so he had a sore throat. We were told to use tylenol. Well, its been a week and he has a TERRIBLE cough and you can just hear the congestion. He wheezes a lot! So I went back to the doctor today. She definitely heard the wheezing and also saw that he had a minor ear infection. Fortunately we caught the ear infection in the early stage so that we can take care of it now and not when it is a full blown ear infection. So by the time we left the dr. office, we were getting medicine for his ear AND a nebulizer for his breathing. The nebulizer cost us $108!!!! I sure hope it helps his breathing. It is cute though. It is a kid one so it is a cow and the carrying case is a barn. We used it the first time and William did NOT like the idea of something blowing smoke in his face. The second time we put Praise Baby DVD in and he was so glued to the TV that he didn't mind the Nebulizer at all. (William is not allowed to watch TV until he is one - Matt says it causes ADD and ADHD - whatever - So watching Praise Baby was quite a treat!) Anyway, I think for now, Praise Baby and a Nebulizer will hopefully take care of William's wheezing. Oh the joys of being a parent!!! Never a dull moment.
Other than that, things are going great here. My job is working out very well. I truly enjoy it. I am not sure if I will have it next year due to major budget cuts. Hopefully I will but either way I have totally felt blessed by having it this year. I got tested for CMV (the virus Matt had over Christmas break) and my blood work showed that I have immunity for it - in other words, I have already gotten it in my lifetime so that is good. I am still trying to lose weight. I lost 4 lbs last week and I have to weigh in for Team Lean again on Wed morning so I hope I lose at least 3 lbs but right now I think I have only lost 2 more. Since Nov. I have lost 14 lbs at this point. I wish I only had a couple of more lbs to go but I have about 30 - uh..... the weight battle continues. I envy those of you that never have to worry about your weight. It is a life long battle. The good thing about trying to lose weight is that I do exercise which is great for my body. I struggle with it - I am a Terry not an Odom! :) I do my elliptical 5 times a week and I just ordered Turbo Jam. Not sure if it was worth ordering but I got it off ebay and thought it might change up my cardio a little - plus it has sculpting with it so I can tone. For those that don't know what Turbo Jam is, it is just a DVD that is like kick boxing with current fun music. We will see and I will let you know if it is worth anything. I am excited about changing it up though from the daily elliptical and walk.
Hope everyone is doing well - I will try to get out and see some of you when William gets better and can be around you. Until then.... have a great one.
