There's a first time for everything

WELL here is my daily routine for the time being. I almost NEVER get sick. Except for headaches. I did however go through a spell where I had strep throat almost every other week for about three months. Then I had my tonsils removed and that took care of that. But last week I got sick and then got sicker. I couldn't breathe and then I was getting dizzy and my hands were tingling. So I went to the doctor and found out I had fluid on my ears, a sinus infection, and bronchitis. And the bronchitis had gotten to where I couldn't get any oxygen so I was hyperventilating causing the dizziness and tingly hands. I thought you just hyperventilated when you panicked. But nope it happens other times to. I didn't feel like I was doing that just felt like I was struggling to breathe. When I got to the doctor he gave me two shots and three medications plus breathing treatments. Two days later I was no better still having breathing problems and so I went back and got another shot and two more medications. And finally 5 days later I am beginning to feel better. Another thing we haven't had to deal with is the flu. Preston has never had it neither has Ace or AliPaige. Until today. Preston woke up with a temp and I left him here with Josh and went to church. When I got home it was even higher so I took him to Med Center. After an hour and a half we finally got the results. SWINE FLU. Great just great. So now Preston has three medications a day and he went ahead and put the whole house on Tamiflu. Which is good. I really can't risk Ace getting it because of his lungs and weak immune system. I just hope and pray that this medication will keep all the germs confined to where they are and not jump from one person to the next. Preston is doing pretty good he isn't acting like he feels bad just coughing and sneezing a lot. So I hope this is the worst it gets. Anyway that is how it is around the Gregory house for a while.

I didn't want to just leave you with the one picture. So I am going to give you a few pictures of my babies when they were just little babies.

Ace at 3 weeks

Preston at 5 days old.

AliPaige at 6 weeks old.

Well that's all for now. Can't wait to see what will be the topic of my next post.
