What a Day! (Mixed Bag)

Right on cue, melty days are followed by a trip to the doctor.

This morning, I heard it, the sound that now strikes fear into my heart and shudders through my brain- the bark of the croup cough. Since Joey has a tendency to turn blue, I didn't mess around. Andy was dropped at school, and Joey and I went straight to the Medic One (a miracle of medicine in this town- you see the doctor in about an hour, instead of days!) Diagnosis: the very beginnings of upper respiratory infection. We now have an inhaler and some amoxicillin for the boy.

We went to get Andy, who came out proudly sporting an Andy O'Shenanigans hat (and orange beard). Ah, 'tis time for th' wearin' o' th' green!

But wait, the excitement isn't over! Andy started on a new therapeutic listening program. This one is going to work with both vestibular and speech. I managed a sinus headache (very rare for me), so our beautiful, wonderful Miss Lisa took both boys back to play! So I got busy getting rid of my headache, and they got busy getting out the wiggles.

After that, it was time to get home and get some rest, especially for Joey. So what happens?

Yep- I now have a snaggletooth boy! Time for the Blue Bunny to come visit! I wonder if she has any blue cars left?

I think he might be extra cute with the missing tooth.

Yep, Stimey's right about the extra adorable factor! :-)

Sorry he's sick again, though. Ugh. Hugs.

cute!! hope the new therapy works out!

We had mixed / unmeasurable results with the audio but that could be because it took forever to get anyone to wear the headphones in the first place!

Yup, one less tooth is still very cute!

We did Dynamic Listening with our son almost two years ago, and he responded very well to it. We saw definite improvements with his sensory system and motor skills (he was under-responsive/sensory seeking).

Hope he feels better soon!
