31 days of blogging?.....That went well, didn't it?! We have been too busy living life to keep up with a blog too! I should have known I couldn't do it! But, I'm back at it....just not every day. I don't know how people find time or enough to say to blog every single day?!
So, what have we been up to during my blogging absence? We have been busy with soccer, school, laundry, camp-outs, appointments, SOCCER, homework, visiting family, LAUNDRY, having fun, cleaning, being SICK, oh.....and more soccer and laundry! :) In other words, Living Life!
Gavin has been sick for the last 2 weeks. He appeared to be better last week and then a day later, it came back even worse. He has been so junky, mainly in his airway and he sounds like a bullhorn when he breathes. He is coughing lots and gagging and spitting up a ton! He was generous and gave it to me, but thankfully I got over it fast. I felt so tired and grumpy when I had the illness, but you would never know that Gavin was sick if he didn't sound like he does! He is still such a happy boy and so good natured! Have I mentioned how happy this boy makes me and what a lesson he is to all of us?
Here are some pictures of Gavin lastnight.....sick and all!
Yep, he's a trooper!
Since he hasn't had a fever and his O2 sats are staying good, I haven't taken him to the doctor, but he hasn't gone to school for 2 weeks. He has an appointment on Thursday, so maybe we'll have to start an antibiotic, if he isn't better by then?
We haven't stopped living life just because he's sick though.....and I'm thankful that we haven't had to. It's been a year and a half since Gavin has had to be in the hospital and this is really quite amazing! For a boy with so many health issues, he is doing remarkably well! I am so thankful for this! With a child like Gavin, you never know when life will have to stop for a while, so until then, we plan on living life to it's fullest, each and every day!..........I just wish laundry wasn't such a big part of that life! :) I'm off to do some more of it, and also to give my sweet boy another breathing treatment..........with a SMILE on my face, because we are able to be at home, and not in the hospital! :) Life really is good! And, so is God!
