Illness - Round 2 Update

I am still recovering from my illness - sinus and ear infections. However, my cough is the worse. I keep telling Mom and Dad to "make the cough go away". And we are trying. 

In the past week I've seen two different health care providers and Mom has been in contact with my allergy/asthma specialist. After she spoke with Dr. J, I exclaimed, "Dr. J is THE MAN." He seems to always get me fixed up. This illness has been a bit tougher.

We're trying to avoid the antibiotics. But I have taken 3 days of oral steroids along with my inhaled steroids and a dual nebulizer treatment of atrovent and albuterol (DuoNeb). Slowly but surely I'm getting there. At least I can sleep through the night again.

When I'm all better, though, I do have to go in for allergy testing again as it seems I might be allergic to milk. Maybe I was trying to tell Mom something by not liking it all these years!

Enjoy the photos...they were taken before I became sick. Hopefully, I'll have some new ones up soon!

Casa della Tires...

Mom may have had a rough afternoon after her car tire went over a chunk of metal, but I certainly thought it was great fun being at the tire store. Like playing "Cars" for real and visiting Casa della Tires. 

At least Bebe Sister was spared the tumultuous fun.

First Library Visit...

Last week when Dad was on vacation, we took our very first family trip to the library. We attended story time. I was SO excited when I heard the topic of the week was...


I had a great time - a little bit overwhelmed by all the singing. 

And even Bebe Sister sat quietly for about 20 of the 30 minutes. After story time, the librarian gave us a stamp on our hands. I was a little sad, though, when I came back to the card and noticed I had washed off my stamp when I washed my hands.

Before we left I picked out some books for myself and Bebe Sister which I checked out with my very own library card. They even had a book about Doc Hudson from Cars!

Space Shuttle Launch...

It's been over a week since the Space Shuttle Discovery launched for its final flight. However, here are the photos of me watching the launch. I try not to miss these since there are so few left.

New Coat - For Tortuga Sitting...

This is what Cousin Dede brought me back for taking care of the tortugas while he was away at a baseball tournament. I like it very much and there is room to grow. 

Thank you so very much.

(By the way, it's a Air Force aviator jacket.)
