Ah, The Small Things in Life That Make One Happy.......

Guess what we got today?

A NEW oxygen concentrator!! The old one was seriously driving us nuts. It was vibrating and rattling so much that the pictures on the wall were going crooked.

Rhett could lay on the floor and go "Aaaaahhhhhhh" and his voice would rattle. I can't believe how quite our house is now. The TV isn't up really loud just to drown out the sound of the concentrator, and I can actually sit in my chair and talk on the phone without having to move away from it.

Gosh, you would think it's Christmas!!

We also had someone come out and measure Rhett for his adaptive stroller. We are getting the transit model so that he can use it when he goes to Pre-School in the fall. (Did I really just say he is going to Pre-School?!?!?) So all we are waiting for now is our Dr. to sign the order for it, then we wait for the insurance to approve it. (Keep your fingers crossed!!!) We chose the bright orange color because Rhett likes flashy things.

Now for another "Here's Your Sign" moment from this last hospital stay. These are EAR DROPS, that were filled in the hospital pharmacy. What is wrong with this picture?
Seriously, I can't go to that place with out them making some kind of stupid mistake, either really big, or small like this.

Now, I will leave you tonight with some pictures of Rhett that I took last night. He is looking much better, and is back up to 30 lbs!! 2 more lbs and we will be back at where he was before he got sick. Hooray!!

Just chillin in my chair gettin some grub.......

Dex drops? We've got the same ones, except our dr. AND the pharmacist both warned us ahead of time, "now these will say they're for the eye, but they are we are using them for her ear, it's okay." So when I got home although it was weird, I already knew it was okay to use them for her ears. What's with the constant ear goo and why do both our kids have the same nasty infection THAT WON'T GO AWAY!???? Glad he's looking so much better and feeling better now!

Leah starts preschool in the fall too. I just filled out her enrollment forms. Ah! I can hardly believe it.

Rhett is too cute. I'm glad he's feeling better. I actually found your blog through another and have been checking up on him the past week. I love your frequent updates!

So great to see him perking up.

We sent you guys some books from Amazon last week, did you get them?

It pains me to hear of yet another mistake the hospital made. I so wish there was someplace else you could take him.

I'm just one more "lurker" on your blog that has sent donations and prayers to your beautiful little boy. I'm so glad to see he's finally on the the mend and it's so good to see him looking like his handsome self again! When he's feeling well, the pictures you post of him never fail to bring a smile and brighten my day. Thank you, Rhett!

Great pictures. I don't understand how pharmacies can make so many mistakes. We have experienced a few as well. I hope things are going good.

Love,

Glad he's feeling better! Brady had a nasty ear infection last year that wouldn't go away and they used a high powered antibiotic eye drop to get rid of the infection. I thought it was weird too :)

Hope he continues to get better.
