To The Doctor

This is the sort of thing Hannah does when she is on steroids! It isn't one thing in particular that she does constantly but, it's constantly something. She bounces off of the wall! I took her to an asthma/allergy specialist today because she coughed through the night and was wheezing like crazy this morning. Anyway the doctor gave her about 4 medications to take including an inhaled steroid. And he says, "keep her out of the church nursery and try to keep her still as much as possible." O.k. obviously he missed the part of the introductions where they asked Joey what he did for a living and he said, "I'm a minister." And...it must have been an oversight that she is 2, dude! Now put that two year old on steroids and you have a child that isn't going to be sitting still for much of anything, certainly not an hour or so long church service!!

Oh well, at least he said she would probably only have to do this for about 6-8 weeks! Yay! Steroids for 2 months! If I suddenly stop posting in the next couple of months, you can probably guess that I have been committed to a mental institution.

Seriously, the fact that she is extremely hyper from some of the medicines doesn't really bother me that much. It's kind of entertaining at times. I also enjoy her going to church with me. So this gives me a great excuse to take her into the service which I do a lot of the time anyway. And...while I would rather her be perfectly healthy 100% of the time, I do like the extra cuddle time that I get when she isn't feeling well.

They did weigh her and measure her height. She now weighs in at 25 1/2 lbs. Believe me, when you try carrying that for any distance...it's heavy enough. She is 36 1/2 inches tall. 3 feet wow, she is more than half my height! Awwww, that kind of makes me sad!

Actually the mental institution thing sound like a good idea. With or without the steroids.

LOL!!! I love it! Brings back memories of when we had a foster placement that had asthma and was put on steriods as well. Added entertainment, yes. Earlier bedtime, definatly! I can remember times when I myself went to bed at the same times as the kids.

You better be nice to me, Doyle. I know where you live and Hannah and I will T-P your house! You have some nice tall trees. Aey, we may do it anyway whether you're nice to me or not! Ha Ha Ha!

You should bring Hannah over to play with Speedy. The "steroids" are part of his normal system!

I am the stay at home mommy of Hannah. In addition to taking care of her, I take care of her daddy. Joey, my husband is the pastor at our church and that means that I have to be on my best behavior most of the time!! Actually I'm probably not, but I do try so so hard! Especially at church, but that's only because I'm usually sitting on the front pew!
