The hack continues. He coughs so hard he vomits. Put night terrors (where we're not supposed to wake him up) with a violent cough and it spells:
HELLBut that's just the brink of it.
Then mommy breaks out in hives, and is rushed to the ER for a magic shot. Cause unknown.
A few days later, add a fever to Benny's cough.
The following night Desty breaks out in hives and visits the ER. Cause unknown.
The next day, Desty appeared fine. Just before 7p.m. my baby girl collapsed into her daddy's arms and had a seizure for five + minutes, and forty minute recovery. As the medics were prepping to take Desty to the ER, Benny was barfing all over the neighbor. Dustin went in the ambulance; I chased behind in my wheelchair. The ER chalked it up to a febrile seizure and released her. Since then, her fever has been on and off, she now has a bad cough, and now we are all sickos.
Finally, a nurse practitioner listened to us yesterday and now both kids are on antibiotics, and Desty has a referral to a neurologist, because, in her opinion, Desty's seizure lasted too long to be a typical febrile seizure. In my opinion, Benny has needed a neuro for a long time....Think Benny could be passed off as Desty's conjoined twin? no, probably not!
While all of this was happening, we discovered a poisonous plant, Mertle Spurge, all over our yard.
It has been wild at the Burton house! Desty's 3rd birthday celebration has been posponed until we are up to partying. Hopefully, we will be able to enjoy Halloween.
We are going to have the cleanest carpets, as we invested in our own Carpet Shampooer, just in case something is being tracked in.
And last but not least, we are investing in a lifestyle change:
GOODBYE HARSH CHEMICALS, HELLO NATURAL PRODUCTS!
It's not a big deal; i.e. the baby bath and bubbles are heavenly soft, the oatmeal soap is glorious and we looooooove Mari, my dear friend, and Mari's Magic butter salve. We will work on the food when they make a natural Dr. Pepper that tastes like the real thing! ;-)
The Bee Gees come to mind of late.........
