One thing after another..

Well, Bert took Sophie to the doc this afternoon. She does have bronchitis. So she is on antibiotics for that. Sophie has also had a chronic cough since we first met her. I was sure it was some kind of allergy related thing. Well, the pediatrician told Bert today she has Reactive Airway disease(the disease word kind of freaked me out). But it is basically just asthma. She is on steroids and 2 inhalers right now. She hates the whole inhaler treatment thing..so I am seriously bribing her with candy. In the words of her chinese paperwork, "she is easy to catch a cold or sickness".

Ok,,,to top all that off..her black eye is FINALLY looking better. Well tonight at the park she got knocked down by the swing. She now has 3, not 1, not 2 but 3 goose eggs and a lot of scratches on her face!! ARRGGGHHH I was so upset! Not to mention she was VERY upset. She got over it much quicker than I did. I hate to admit I lost my cool when it happened but wow did I lose it!(it was one of my kids who knocked her down, dont worry I didnt go postal on someone else's child!)lol. She is now in bed asleep and all is well..ahhh the scars of toddlerhood!

Well, Bless her little heart. I hope today is an accident free day for the Pierce family! Love, Monica

Aww how sad! Poor Sophie! Will she have to use the inhalers all the time or only when the asthma flares up?

Hey Teresa,
Sorry we didn't get to see you at the reunion. We understand about the bruises and black eyes and goose eggs. Day before yesterday, Grace ran full speed into a door jam and immediately had an egg the size of a half dollar! I'm more worried I won't survive it more than I am worried she won't survive it!!! Hang in there!!!

I am so sorry to hear that! I have a child with asthma and it is okay once you get it managed. To watch them be sick is so sad. I hope all goes well and quickly. Sorry to hear she is hurt again. We are thinking Maylin needs a helmet. She is constantly sporting a goose egg too!

Poor Sophie. Maybe the med's will make her feel better. As for the goose eggs, I'm sure they won't be the last. Caleb seems to have new ones everyday.

Love Ya,
Christie
