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!!!
