There has been a lot of mommy-baby time lately. We have been having a good time, aside from the fact that we miss dad a lot and we have all been a little under the weather. I don't know what it is about my kids (especially Coen) and never catching a break with illnesses. I mean, they were both breast fed babies, that's supposed to be liquid gold and prevent them from getting junk but that's not the case in our house.
January was pretty much a wash in our house. Emie was sick the whole month and Coen was for a portion of that month. February we had some runny noses and some typical cold weather colds, now it's March and everything seems to be starting all over. I don't get it.
Coen got pink eye last week, then he's had a fever and an incredibly running nose. This is all accompanied by a cough and really crabby attitude. He just doesn't feel good. We've been doing eye drops and antibiotics but that's not really doing the trick and is only tearing up his diapers and his wardrobe.
Emie got pink eye as well and she's been super snotty which is just hard to deal with when she's so little and doesn't understand what's going on. This also halts her eating a bit... Stinks.
The most important thing that is going on right now is about someone who is a very important person in our lives. Sean's dad has had some very difficult news, health-wise. Last week, they discovered a brain tumor while doing an MRI. As of yesterday, 6 days later, we now know that it's an inoperable, very aggressive brain tumor and on Wednesday/Thursday this week we will learn what it is and what the next steps are that will be taken to potentially treat this tumor.
Assuming it's cancer, there is a very long road ahead of us. It's the most awful and most terrible thing to hear, watch, witness, understand, and to have happen to anyone. It's very difficult to understand but Sean, his mom and brother are all trying to communicate with anyone who will talk to them at the hospital and educated ourselves about what's going on, as best as we can.
If you're a prayer warrior or have the ability to pray or can send positive thoughts, we need them. Tom needs them.
Thank you for your continued support.
