Weekend Fun

The weekend is almost here and I'm traveling in a different car this weekend. Yeah for me. My car is in the shop...Maybe I will have A/C when it comes home. I already miss my baby car because it gets such good gas mileage.

Samantha goes to nutrition tomorrow to check her weight and make sure she hasn't dropped too far after having the stomach bug here a while back.

I will update later about the nutrition visit, hopefully tomorrow but definitely by the end of the day Monday.

Trying to stay out of the hospital

Not a whole lot going on in Samantha's world. She is fighting a little bit of a cough so albuterol and vest has been bumped up.
The most irritating thing going on right now is Samantha lost some weight when she had the virus the other week, and she is just not gaining it back so feedings have been pushed up from 4 cans of formula a day to 5 cans. And we follow up with nutrition August 1 for a weight check and to evaluate the situation to see if anything more needs to be done.
Lets hope she can kick this cough without another visit to the hospital.
More updates if anything changes.

Samantha was sick and VBS

OK, I know I am running behind again, but we have been incredibly busy with vacation Bible school all week. On Tuesday night I had to call an ambulance for Samantha because she was coughing and gasping for air. Turns out it was just a virus and Samantha was sent home, followed up with CF the next day and was able to continue VBS. She "graduated" last night and had such a wonderful time while she was there.

I have been a little slow, sorry

Samantha came off of her IVs on Wednesday and seems to be doing very well. We went to St. Augustine to see the fireworks and Samantha had a blast with her brother. Not much time to blog, I just wanted to update everyone and I hope everyone had a happy 4th!!!

Today's doctors visit

When Samantha finishes the IV medicine that we have at home tomorrow night she will be finished for this round. She will then go back on the inhaled Gentamycin. Otherwise she continues to do well. We are working on the weight thing some because it is being a bit stubborn, but overall very good.
