November....

So I was thinking to myself "Self, what happened in the fall that led to you not posting anymore?" Then I remembered the month of November...it was one big blur.

Larkin got sick, which you'll come to learn is the norm at our house. But she got really sick, major cough, congestion, then came the wheezing and inconsolable crying (by both of us). We ended up at the ER on a Saturday afternoon, it was a disaster. Her pulse ox sucked (down to 87 when sleeping) and her test results showed RSV, so we spent the night in the hospital. All the while, I'm of course very pregnant (I think maybe 20-21 weeks at this point?) and coming down with the "cold" as well. Luckily, Larkin did great and only spent one night there. We did end up having to do breathing treatments with her at home, and she of course had a horrible ear infection, but she recovered very well. What should have been a "cold" in an adult turned into major illness in a stressed out and pregnant mom. I was in misery, poor Patrick had to do it all, and my parents helped out a ton...all the illness ran straight into Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving ran straight into Christmas preparation, all the while I'm stressing out about the early contractions, and that pretty much steamrolled into January...where the rest of the story will continue shortly.

Here's our holiday picture...

Lucas and Bailey caught RSV last August, too. Lucas' turned into Bronchiolitis, which is sounds like Larkin had too (wheeze, cough, congestion, lasted about 2.5 months). It sucked, I totally know what you went through :( We're always sick as well, my kids are freaking germ magnets, and of course once a baby gets Bronchiolitis chances are they'll get it again :(

You have a super cute family, btw!
