Yeah, so a "snotty nose" takes on a whole new meaning when oxygen tubes are involved. Yuck.
And this mama has been known to suck out the nose cannula with my mouth. I know. I cannot even describe the revulsion. What we won't do for our kiddos, huh?! :)
Poor baby has been sick for a week now with this cold and the snot, it just keeps comin'! The positives are that she hasn't had a fever and doesn't seem to be getting an infection of any sort from it. But oh boy, has she struggled with her O2 levels!
So much for the "healing" that some random lady claimed for her a few weeks ago (more on that later). Yeah, I don't think so.
I'm so behind on updates and have to jump back in somehow, so here goes! It's September. We're enjoying cooler weather, fighting colds and enjoying outings with the cousins.
Last Thursday, our local Krispy Kreme celebrated National Pirates Day by giving out one dozen doughnuts to anyone brave enough to don pirate garb. Yes, you read that correctly. ONE. DOZEN. DOUGHNUTS. EACH. Needless to say, the wee pirates were made to hand over most of their bounty to the grown ups!
Jack was a little uncertain about the process and only participated under duress and after insisting on wearing his komodo-dragon-hunting boots and cowboy vest. Interesting pirate combo but who cares?!
We concluded the fun with a picnic at a local playground and then took our sugary, dusty little mateys off home for long naps.
And I hate to admit it, but by 9 am the next day, there wasn't a doughnut to be found at our house! Yum.
