Christmas 2009

I know I haven't updated here in a while but things have been really busy around here lately, but I can always be found on facebook. I guess the biggest things we have dealt with in the last few months are all of the medical issues we have had. Let's start with the oldest first, this year Lane has had an impacted bowel twice. The cure was to have his colon cleansed which required an overnight hospital stay. Next would be Becca. She was coughing non stop for about two months and no medicine was working. Then the doctor took an x-ray and found that she had pnuemonia, so she was admitted to the hospital. While in the hospital they did more tests and discovered that not only did she have pnuemonia but she also had swine flu. Then after she was released from the hospital she was still coughing a lot for about another month. So then they discovered that on top of all of those other things she has asthma. So now she has to take singulair and a breathing treatment every night. Now we come to Bethany. Now I thought that I had just passed on the family curse of Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) so we took her to a neurologist. The doctor agreed the she did indeed have RLS but based on the other things that we told her about Bethany's sleeping habits she wanted to do a sleep study. Once the study was done it was found that Bethany had sleep apnea. The best way to take care of it for her was to remove her tonsils and adnoids. So that was done and she has since recovered from her surgery and we will be taking her back to the neurologist on the 6th to schedule another sleep study to see if it got rid of the apnea. Thankfully through all of this the oonly problem Lorelei has had is a few polyps in one of her ears. The kids had a great Christmas! They got everything they wanted and more. You can find pictures of the kids at this link Enjoy and Happy New Year!!!

Here is Bethany again with some flipped out pigtails.

This is Bethany. I know it is hard to see but she has three braids on top pulled back to a looped braid.

This is one of Becca's new looks.

Ok I know it has been awhile but things have been busy around here. So here is a little update Lane has just turned 8 and will be starting the 3rd grade next month. The girls are 4 and they will be going to pre-K next month and boy are they excited. Bethany my little pistol is growing be leaps and bounds. She will be 3 next month and is so disappointed that she can't go to school with her sisters. My father has recently opened up a liquor store here in Orange and I have been working with him. I have been experimenting with the girls hair lately so I am including some pics of this. Forgive me if some of them are side ways I took them with my cell phone.

I just thought that I would show you all what I have been up to. As most of you know I have love to crochet and be a little crafty. So I made these for the girls and I am actually trying to sell them. These are the poodles I made for the girls and I haven't finished the monkey that I am making for my friends little boy.

Severely Allergic

Oh my God!!!!! I can't believe what happened. I was going outside to do some clean up work in our yard and I thought it would be fun if the kids came outside in their bathing suits and played in the water from the hose. So we're outside having fun and all of a sudden I realize that Becca has gone back around to the front of the house (we were on the side of the house). I called her back over and she started saying "OW!". Then I looked at her legs and she was being bitten by ants, of course I immediately started to hose her legs down to get them off of her. I got all the kids shoes off and made sure there were no more ants on them I then sent them inside to get showers in case there were any left in their clothes. By the time I got Becca to the shower she was already starting to turn red. I rinsed her off and started getting her dressed while I was calling the doctors office. They told me to bring her in ASAP. By the time I got her to the doctor's office she was covered from head to toe in whelps and she was red. The doctor said that she also heard her start to wheeze. They rushed her into a room and started giving her a breathing treatment then they gave her a shot of epinephrine and a steroid shot. She eventually started to return to her normal color. So now we know that she is extremely allergic to ants and she has to carry around an epipen. I was so completely stressed out that day. Oh and now because of all of this she has to spend two weeks staying out of the sun and heat. Which is going to be no picnic at all considering that we live in Texas.

So yesterday all three girls got PE Tubes put in their ears, their adnoids taken out, and their turbinates shrunk. They came through it all just fine and hopefully this will make life better for them. Here is a pic of the girls leaving the hospital. Lane met with the Oral surgeon today and he will be having surgery to remove his extra tooth on June 27th.

Ok so sorry its been so long but here we are. So first things first I have included pictures of the girls in their Easter dresses that I made for them. Now on to the bad stuff. Lane has recently been to the dentist and found out that one of his two front teeth is coming in completely side ways. We were also told that he has an extra tooth between his two front teeth. He has recently had 4 of his baby teeth pulled, by the dentist, to make room for his adult teeth. We have an appt scheduled for 5/15 to see the oral surgeon about removing the extra tooth.

The girls went to the doctor today and we found out that all three girls need tubes put in their ears. So on 5/14 all three girls will be getting tubes in their ears. Ok so now on a happier note as some of you may know my girls have always been very afraid of any kind of animal. They will only pet their own dog if I am holding him. So we were very surprised this weekend. On Saturday we spent pretty much all day at the local Crawfish Festival. We passed by an area that had a petting zoo and pony rides. Then Tony and I could not believe our ears when Lorelei and then Becca said "I want to ride the horsey!". They were so adamant about it that when we left to go home and get my camera, more money, and hopefully something to eat, they refused to get out of the truck saying "I don't want to eat! I want to ride the horsey!". So there are also pics of their very first pony ride.
