Life Has Gotten Interesting

Life has gotten a little bit more interesting. I took Kaleb and Rylan to the doctor this morning for their ears which have been  painful. Neither has an ear infection, but Rylan has a bad cold and teething while Kaleb has a TON of fluid in his ears due to his severe allergy to cats and dogs. The doctor said that she hasn't seen that much fluid in one kids ears.

For those that don't know, Kaleb has severe allergies to cats and dogs which is depressing to me as I want a dog so bad. When Kaleb doesn't have his allergy medicine he ends up with black and purple eyes that swell pretty bad, he sneezes a lot, and runny nose. We have tried all sorts of over the counter medicine and only children's allegra helped. Recently my parents watched the boys while Adam and I went on a much needed date. When we went and picked up the boys Kaleb looked like he got punched in his face. He had a nasty black and purple eye and swollen pretty bad. I had given him his allergy medicine prior to going to my parents since they have a cat and 2 dogs. My mom not knowing I gave him medicine, gave him a dose of benadryl and he still had a severe reaction with double dose on allergy meds.

Today the doctor said that Kaleb's allergy is worsening and he can no longer touch or be in the same room as a cat or dog. If the animal is an indoor pet Kaleb cannot be in the house at all. If he is leaving the house to go to the store, church, or school he needs to take allergy medicine or even if someone comes to our house that has animals. The dander on someones clothes bothers him as well. We are no longer able to go to anyones home that has cats and dogs until we meet with an allergist and try to get treatment that will help Kaleb. His allergy is worsening and the meds aren't helping anymore. The doctor is worried that it will start effecting his breathing if we don't figure something out soon.

Life has gotten so much more interesting. It saddens me that we cannot go to my parents home, sisters home or certain friends homes anymore.  At least until we can figure out a better treatment that works. Please pray for Kaleb that the allergist can figure something out.

I couldn't ask for better!

I just have to do a little rant about how GrEaT my sweet husband is!
See this man...

This man amazes me! I am truly the luckiest woman in the world! In the last few months I have broken my shoulder blade and gotten sick a few times. He didn't complain once! All he did was take such good care of me. He took care of our 3 boys all by himself. He let me be and didn't ask anything of me. He's been so busy working, studying for his CPA tests, helping my dad work on the weekends, helping out around the house, and being a wonderful daddy and husband. There is no greater man! I am so proud of all the hard work my sweet Adam does. I am truly blessed to have such an incredible spouse! He is truly my other half! I don't know what I would do without him! I couldn't ask for better! Ok, rant over.   <3 love my man!

A New Year

It's been an interesting past couple of months. Last post I talked about doing a ton of holiday baking. Well, that didn't exactly happen because I broke my scapula (shoulder blade). I was in a sling for 5 weeks and then had to do physical therapy. Sometimes it still hurts, but it's rare now. During this time my family and home took a hit. I was out of commission. Now it is the start of a new year and I am ready to take it on. There are so many things that my little family has started doing such as chore charts for everyone, more organization, potty training, etc.

 One of the things that I have really been focusing on is doing my personal scripture study. This is a huge thing. I have gotten really bad about it, but I started making a goal to do it every day and I've only missed 1 day! I can tell of how much a difference this has on my attitude, how I parent, my home is just more peaceful. I love it. There is nothing better than a peaceful and happy home. <3

This year Adam will be receiving his CPA certification. He has only one more test to pass before April 30th which I know he can do! I'm so proud of my husband! He is such a hard worker! He's an amazing husband and daddy! I don't know what I'd do without him! Love you sweetheart! Forever and ever, always and always! <3
