Well it just keeps getting better....

The boys are still sick. Ryan was diagnosed with a sinus infection but he is still vomiting so I don't think the antibiotics are working since he can't keep anything down. The doctor thinks his stomach is irritated from all of the drainage from his sinuses. We are keeping an eye on him for dehydration or if it gets worse, then we will go to urgent care.

Ethan is not doing well either. He had 5 bloody noses yesterday. The third one was so bad that we almost had to take him to urgent care because I couldn't get it to stop. He was vomiting from all of the drainage so that wasn't fun either. If it starts gushing again we have to take him to urgent care to have it packed and possibly cauterized.

At least the pink eye is better in both boys!

So that's our update. I am feeling much better after fighting the stomach bug on Thursday. Greg has yet to get anything but I am not holding my breath. Today has been spent taking down the Christmas decorations and disinfecting everything. I should buy stock in Lysol & Chlorox wipes. I have kept them in business this week.

Occupational therapy

I took some pics of Ryan's therapy last week so that we can create a chart for him. It is easier for him to see pictures of what he is going to do instead of us telling him. We are hoping, by seeing the pictures, that he will transition easier from activity to activity, rather than throwing tantrums.

Merry Sickmas!

It's been a long few days. We are all sick. Well, Greg has somehow escaped it all. Ryan was up Christmas day, about 2 am, throwing up. Needless to say, we were up all night with him. He was extrememly cranky all day. Then, Ryan woke up with a very crusty eye on the 26th. Took him to the doctor and he has pink eye and the start of a sinus infection. Ethan has had a unexplained fever the last couple of days and the pink eye has hit him. Then I got the stomach bug last night and was in bed all day today. It's been real fun! Luckily, Greg was off of work and let me stay in bed all day!

The boys on Christmas Eve....before the sickness hit

And after.... Ryan was not a happy camper

Then we found Rocket!

Ethan was completely oblivious to Ryan and loved his presents.

Well we did want him to eat more

We just didn't expect it to be a purple marker. Ryan really enjoyed his marker.

We have a date!

We have Ryan's Autism evaluation scheduled! We have to wait until February but we are nervous and relieved all at the same time. We go on 2 separate days, for 3 hours each. I am told from other parents that it will be a grueling process for Ryan as they will make him do things he is not comfortable doing but we are very anxious to get some answers. This evaluation will either confirm a diagnosis of Autism or not. Let the countdown begin!


We had our first snowfall today and the boys had to go out and enjoy it. Ethan went sledding and Ryan enjoyed it as long as he didn't have to touch it.

Breakfast with Santa

I thought I would share some pictures from Breakfast with Santa at Ethan's school. The boys had so much fun! Ryan wouldn't sit on Santa's lap but he did at least hold his hand.
