Ambulance Ride

So as I said last time all my kids have been sick. Yesterday was when Logen turn started. At about 2 a.m. Friday Logen started to have problems breathing, I was up almost all night with him. We had a few errands to run that day, by the time we were done it was time to pick up the girls from school. When we got home his breathing had gotten worse. I decided to take him to the Instacare. Anngee watched the other kids for me (Thanks Anngee!!!) When we got there his vitals were at 89 and his heartbeat was way to fast. The gave him a steroid to open up his lungs, then it had the opposite effect. He couldn't breath and started to freak out!! They called an ambulance and gave him some form of epinephrine to reopen his lungs. About 5 minutes later the ambulance arrived, and we were off. On the way there they had him on 100% oxygen. If they pulled it away his vitals would drop instantly. When we got there they did a bunch of test and stuff and it was confirmed that he has Croup. At 6 they told us he was going to stay overnight. Jesse left to go get the kids cause Anngee and shane had an appointment. He didn't make it on time so Mark went and got them for him( Thanks so much Mark!!) It wasn't a fun night, he cried a lot and boy does he hate to be touched!! The second a Nurse would walk in he would tell them to "get out" or "go away". They let us go at about 10:30-11:00 in the morning. He is doing much better now, just a little cough. They told us to just keep a close eye on him. I have to take him to his doctor on Monday for a check-up. Thanks everyone so much for all your help, Your awesome!! I will post Rae's pictures of her Birthday tomorrow.

Little Happenings

So not much has been going on in our lives as of late. All my kids are sick, they sound like a bunch of dying frogs. I don't know where they got it from, sorry Britteny if your kiddos get it too. This will be a busy weekend with Della coming for Rae's Birthday, I think her parents are coming too, it will be a full house. On a different note my little Logen is such a talker, I am amazed at all the things he can say. He can say most of the alphabet, it is so cute!! On a completely different note, I am having problems with my Jesse boy. He has done awesome on the whole Potty Training thing, when it comes to going pee. He hasn't had an accident in months. I can not for the life of me get him too poop in the potty, he just won't do it. We've tried EVERYTHING!! We even have a a little preschool toilet in the downstairs bathroom for the kids to use. He will hold it in for like a week, I feel so bad I know it has to hurt his poor little belly. Any advise would be great!! As for Payton she is doing great in school. I have to admit I was a little scared at first, She just had no interest in learning anything, but she is doing really good. We are still trying to have the house up for sale by the end of February. That is assuming we get enough money back from our Taxes to finish the house. So there it is, my life in a nutshell.

10 Years Old!!!

My Rae is going to be 10 on February 1, 2009. I know this is a little early to be posting this, but I just wanted to show some pics of what she looked like when I first met her.

To look at this picture it so hard to believe that my girl is turning 10. This picture above is my first Mothers Day Present. We weren't married yet but Rae still called me Mom. I remember her coming in and handing me the picture, I loved it.

To give all of you a perspective, Rae was Boo's age when I met her. She still kinda talked funny, and had those big chubby cheeks.

I was terrified the first time I met her. It was our second date, and we were going out to breakfast at Denny's. This is something Jesse and Rae did every Sunday morning. I was scared she wouldn't like me. We went to Sandhallow before it was all filled with water, and she fell asleep. Later that day we went to the park and that was the first time she called me Mom. Also the first time Jesse kissed me!!

This one is after we were married I was 7 months prego with Payton at the time. This is my all time favorite picture of Rae. It is just so her!!
She asked to get her hair permed for her Birthday, so I will be taking her to get it done the Friday before her birthday(January 30). A loose one, not too curly. I will post some Pictures of her birthday in a few weeks. New hair and all.

Blah, Blah, Blah

I haven't posted in a while, I really don't have anything to say. Nothing much has happened, the kids are back in school now. Jesse still has his job, me too, YEAH!!! Our plans are to be out of Utah by or hopefully before May. If we can't sell it we will put it up for rent. We have talked to some people in Henderson and looked for homes to rent there for a while, before we buy a home. Jesse really hates the snow, even more then Mom I think! We only have a little tile work in the master bath to finish and the house will be done. Hopefully we can get it finished with our Taxes, amongst other things. So yeah there is a little tidbit of my boring life for the moment, hopefully something more interesting will come up at a later date!!
