events of yesterday

pictures taken by Janna Beecher. She does a lovely job doesn't she?

Yesterday Kenzie fell back on the kitchen table chair and split her chin open. It was interesting how quickly I forgot about how sick I was when I saw the blood gushing. The cut was very wide and sort of deep- little balls of fat were coming out of the wound. My little baby girl was so strong despite the tears...

Rushing to the Kids Care clinic, I decided to drop off Julia at the neighbors. Then the still small voice whispered to me, "take Julia to the doctor's too" I didn't want to haul them both with me- DRAMA, especially with Kenzie's condition.

Julia has had a cough and runny nose for about a month. I keep waiting for it to go away. It has never went away.

So with two co-pays I enter the doctor's office in hopes to find some relief for my girls and my life.

Kenzie got glued up after some series of painful washings and Julia has bronchitis and a double ear infection! What? You would think Julia would be a horrible nightmare- but nope...tough girl. Oh how I love my girls. They need me so much and it is wonderful...most of the time. I loved being there for them yesterday.

Although I don't really like anti-biotics, I do right now. Because I can't handle much of anything right now in my life and I am looking for any and all "cure-all's"

Have you seen the movie "Click"? Ok, not the most appropriate movie, but I wish I could have a remote control that could fast forward my life into the second trimester...

I am so thankful for my wonderful pediatrician. I love this genuine lady.

Although I am opposed to government run/public option health care, I still wish that insurance and medical costs could be affordable enough for every Mom to bring in their sick babies to the doctors. Everyone deserves that. But even with super good insurance, our little doctor visit yesterday will still not end up being cheap. 20%and co-pays add up! what to do what to do...
