Rough Week

Last week was one of the hardest weeks I've ever experienced. Boy, and I glad that my sister, Shauna, and my mom were here to help! We started out on Monday taking Brooks into the doctor for a check up. They were concerned about jaundice so we had to take him into the hospital to get it checked.
Oh, and while we were at the doctor's office, I had them check Brynn since she seemed not to be feeling well. She ended up having an ear infection and a sinus infection. So they put her on antibiotics to fix it.
I spent Tuesday cleaning and trying to help Brynn feel as comfortable as possible. Wednesday, my mom and sister arrived. Thursday Brynn was not doing well! She had a 103 degree fever that we could not get to brake. I took her back to the doctor and they gave her an antibiotic shot since the other medicine wasn't seeming to work.
Friday, the fever continued and Brynn was MISRABLE and constantly crying. I took her back to the doctor Friday and they had me take her to the hospital for x-rays and blood tests to see if the problem was viral or bacterial. Can I just say how hard that was having to hold her down for x-rays, waiting for them to get the machine to work, and Brynn not understanding what was going on and being so scared. Then listening to her scream as they were drawing her blood. AWEFUL!!!!!!!!
The tests came back all normal, but Brynn was still not feeling well. Sunday, Brett gave her a blessing and finally Monday, she started showing signs that she was feeling better. I don't know if it's because she was feeling so horribly last week that she's so happy to be feeling good, but she is so sweet and adorable now. Maybe it's just that my view on her has changed. Who knows, I'm just glad that she's doing better!!
And thank goodness for the extra help I had from my mom and sister! I wouldn't have been able to make it through the week without them!!
Brooks had been doing well, thankfully! His jaundice is clearing up. Now if I can just get him to sleep better at night, we'd be just fine!! Here are some pictures I've taken...

This is kind of funny to me. We have two babies! It's only funny until Brynn wants me to hold her and not Brooks and proceeds to throw a fit if I don't. We've got to work on that. And no more bottles! I'll be working on that.

Sounds like you have your hands full! I remember the jaundice crap! I have to say you are lucky they didn't send you with the light bed. That was hard. It sounds like Brooks is a great baby though. I am sorry for little Bryn and her troubles. That is never good to have to go through. Again, your home is beautiful! You guys look so happy!
