Something About May

I can not believe that this time two whole years ago we were knee deep in the PICU dealing with the surgery to correct Bailey's airway.  But we were!  I think by this date in time, May 19th, we might have been either about to come home or home.  You can go back and read about it here.  I tried to link to a picture of our sweet girl from that time but for some reason I couldn't.  I am thankful everyday that we were able to get to the bottom of that problem, deal with it, and have it behind us.  Remember, in February she was released from her surgeon/ENT for good unless other problems come about.  So far so good!  It just seems like two years has flown by.

This time one year ago, we were dealing with death of Sid's grandfather.  I know it has been a long, hard year for that side of the Whitehead family, but just like always, they truck on!  Bailey got that bad eye infection the day of the funeral and I had food poisoning.  Again, I cannot believe that was 12 whole months ago.  It feels like just yesterday.

And now, this May, what could we possibly be in to?  Well, like I said yesterday, Bailey has been a bit under the weather.  After 48 hours of an antibiotic and resting, she seemed to be getting worse instead of better.  So Sid took her back to the doctor this morning and after some blood work (in which she informed me they pinched her), an xray, a shot (in which she informs me is her bo-bo), and a new antibiotic, we came home with the diagnosis of pneumonia.  Bless her little heart! I have no idea how she gets this stuff.  But it makes me even more so thankful for this time two years ago when we were correcting her small airway.  If we had not been able to fix that problem, times like these would be near tragic. 

Although we only have 5 more days of school left this school year, I will be home with her tomorrow and was home with her on Tuesday.  Sid has been home with her today and yesterday.  We both got a trip to the doctor out of the deal!  I just can't imagine what is going to happen when we mix two more to this formula. 

And as  I think ahead to next May, I just can't imagine what I will be reporting to ya'll!  This is a crazy ride, ya'll, and we are holding on tight!

I saw your question on http://thelifeofsuz.blogspot.com/ about captain's chairs vs bench in the Suburban/Yukon XL. I had a Burb with a bench seat and had absolutely NO problems getting in the third row. It was actually easier than the Captain's chairs when I had 2 carseats. With 2 carseats in the second row Captian's chairs you have to manuver around a seat to get into the third row. With the bench you put one kid in the middle and one kid on the outside, then the other outside seat folds and flips for easy access to the third row. I hope this helps.
