Too long, too much and too sleepy

It's been too long since I blogged! We have had too much going on and honestly until the last 2 days, I've been too sleepy!!

My kids were sick - again - and therfore hadn't been sleeping well. Luke still - at 4 goes thru these things where he won't sleep - he doesn't go to sleep at night, then if he does, he's up in the night - or up very early in the morning. This cycle seems to repet itself over and over until something (who knows what) happens and all of a sudden he seems to sleep again. I don't know, it's weird. We're in a "not sleeping" cycle now. Then of course Avery gets sick again - Luke shared his cold with her - and hers turned into an ear infection. So she wasn't sleeping much, until we got the anti-biotics into her. She has slept the last 2 nights - which is great - but woke up this morning with a big case of the runs! I knew it would happen, it's due to the antibiotics - but after talking to the doc about the meds and the diarriah they cause and the fact that we could do this - or do a lower dose antibiotics and maybe still have to do the wider spectrum stuff after the lower dose cause it might not get it all - we just went for the wider spectrum stuff. I didn't see any sense in doing 2 rounds of antibiotics! So we started the morning with yucky sheets, PJ's and a "hose off" in the tub! But she does seem to be feeling better and like I said - she's sleeping all night again - so no complaining here!!

So there's a fast update. I have more to say, but I'll have to find a different time to do that - as it seems Avery is keeping herself busy by unloading the kitchen cabinet (it used to have a child safty thing on it, but Mommy broke it off!)!

P.S sorry for any misspellings - I couldn't get my computer to copy and past this post into Word!!

yogurt might and should help counter act the effects of the antibiotics by putting the good bacteria back in her system....have you tried that?

Thanks Nan! I have tried and luckily for me - she loves it! The poor girl is eating like 6 or 8 a day!! Some days (like this morning) it was the only thing I could get her to eat at all! The Doc told me it would help some, but wouldn't stop it. So I'll take what I can get!
