This post was started on THURSDAY! OY...I'm not rewriting it sorry I'm just adding to it.
Since Tuesday Peanut has been complaining about her neck hurting and when she turns to the left she turns her whole body. You know like when you sleep wrong and your neck is stiff. After the 3rd night of very rocky sleep because she was miserable at night J took her into the ER. Her left lymph nodes were swollen. I was just happy to hear it wasn't something more serious and that they gave us a plan for helping her sleep without being in pain. I knew something was up because kids that young don't have neck problems/pain. I hate when my kids don't feel right and they aren't their fun little selves. Updated: Friday she was still feeling not quite right. I call the doctor's office that is covering for our normal doctor because when something like this happens your doctor is out of town right. Well they squeeze her in and say that they are still a bit swollen and put her on a round of antibiotics for strep. The other week when Monkey wasn't feeling well and had pink eye they did a throat culture on him. The office one came back negative but the one they sent away came back positive. He was doing fine so we ended up not putting him on it but since all that occurred the doctor felt Peanut should be on it without actually checking her throat which kind of made me mad. Ok I'll be honest it really made me mad. Let's just give them medicine without being sure. Whatever. I didn't go with to this doctor because I had promised Red a McDonalds date with me on this day. This is her 3rd day on it and she seems to be feeling better and turning her head better.
The other thing I wanted to blog about was an email I got the other day regrading my blog. I received an email stating that my blog was rated in the top 50 blog for pregnancy. I thought hmmm but I'm not pregnant! I checked out the link and sure enough there was my blog under the Christian Mom's blog and number 19. How cool is that? So check it out! I thought that was pretty cool even though I didn't really think my blog fit because I'm NOT pregnant.
Other than that J had 4 days off this last week and he did tons of stuff to the house and throw in the trip to Great America and we had a pretty jam packed week of fun. I got a book from the library that I think is very interesting in the parenting realm of my life. It is called, Raising selfless children in a self-absorbed world by Jill Rigby. So far I agree with her on her outlook on parenting and bonus it was from the library so I didn't have to buy it and then store it when I'm done!!!
